Air China: Only 15,000 Phoenix Miles for Business Class Award Ticket from North America to Beijing?

UPDATE: This does turn out to be a translation error as I guessed below, the discount is only 15% (which is nothing to laugh at it!). Thanks to Jeff K and his mom who gave me the correct translation.
 
I found this offer over the weekend as part of Air China's new bonus for flying on many of their long haul routes and several regional ones too. It only takes up the last half of the promotional paragraph but if this is true, this is a huge redemption discount for flights! According to the wording on the page, Phoenix Miles members can enjoy an 85% discount on award tickets between Beijing and Frankfurt, New York, Los Angeles, Vancouver and Singapore until June 30, 13! You do have to register for the offer to partake in it.


That means for flights between Vancouver or New York and Beijing you only have to redeem 21,750 Phoenix Miles Kilometers for First Class, 15,000 Phoenix Miles Kilometers for Business Class or 9,000 Kilometers for Economy Class! This seems too good to be true, perhaps their translation of the Chinese page for the offer meant you can get the ticket for 85% of the original cost or in other words a 15% discount. I am going to do some more digging on this one but it may be worth taking a look at! If this does turn out to be the amazing deal it sounds like then the best bet to get Phoenix Miles Kilometers is to transfer Starwood Preferred Guest Starpoints at a 1:1 ratio (and of course 5,000 bonus Kilometers for every block of 20,000 converted).

Full details on the promotions can be found here.

I'll try to keep you updated on this offer and/or if you can find out more details please post them below in the comments.

US Airways Double (or 100% bonus) Miles on buying Dividend Miles returns in May

So far in 2013 we have seen a targeted 100% buy miles bonus and a 50 to 100% buy miles bonus (seems like most people got 50%) from US Airways but we have yet to see the standard 100% or  Double Miles for buying Dividend Miles that seemed to be the norm from the Dividend Miles program for the past couple of years.

Well my sources tell me the Double Miles (as they call it) or 100% bonus will return in May. I don't have all the details yet but they say it will be the biggest one in 2013 which leads me to believe it will be open to everyone and will be the straight 100% Bonus. I'm going to see if I can get more details but May isn't too far away so if I can't get the details in the next 5 days I'm sure we'll find out soon enough.

SPG's Double Take now open for registration

I brought you the details of SPG's latest systemwide promotion a few weeks ago and am pleased to let you know that it is now officially open for registration. I am looking forward to this promo as I already have 13 nights planned at Starwood Hotels before July 31st and quite possibly will have a few more on top of that. Here is the offer once again as it has been on FFB's SPG page for the past few weeks:

SPG Double Take: Double Starpoints + 500 Bonus Points for stays at more than 1,000 participating Starwood Hotels Worldwide.
Bonuses as follows:
- Earn Double Starpoints® for every eligible stay
- Earn 500 bonus Starpoints for each eligible booking made through the spg.com mobile site, the SPG® App for iPhone® or the SPG App for Android (Valid for all Starwood hotels Worldwide)

American AAdvantage announces 2013 Elite Rewards

This year's American AAdvantage Elite Rewards are way better than they have been in the past. The news started breaking yesterday about how much more generous they are this year and how they can be potentially easier to achieve. In the past the Elite Rewards were strictly based on Elite Qualifying Points which basically meant those Elites flying on higher fare classes were awarded and gone are the Elite Level requirements for earning these rewards (Gold at 40K points, Platinum at 75K and Executive Platinum at 125K points) Now all Elite members will be able to choose 1 Elite Rewards at each qualifying level (see the graphic below, there is no better way of explaining it or rehashing it here).

You must register online by Dec 31, 13 and choose your reward(s) by Feb 28, 14. If you've already qualified for a milestone, look for your first notification email by the end of May.  Full details and online registration can be found here.

A quieter day here on FFB today as I there is lots of work going on behind the scenes both for FFB and the FFB Group (my consulting side).

Today's highlight is a new online shopping bonus from US Airways. If you do lots of online shopping you may want to funnel some or all of your purchases through the Dividend Miles StoreFront. What else was posted today that is worthwhile? The previously mentioned Marriott bonus for Gaylord hotel stays, a new Singapore Airlines credit card offer and a nice bonus from Jet Airways for stays at Swissotel's Worldwide.

Extra Bonus on buying Avianca TACA LifeMiles during the 100% Bonus Period

Back on April 8th I showcased the latest version of Avianca TACA LifeMiles' 100% Buy Miles promotion and now there is a targeted offer floating around adding extra miles on top for those who have not been active with their accounts in the past 12 months.

The offer I got in my email:


It looks like LoyaltyLobby got it as well and John points out that you can take the targeted link from the email
https://www.lifemiles.com/eng/mya/prt/myaprtone.aspx?id=1&action=oto&codpro=LMAB06&ftnum=Numberhere
and replace Numberhere with your LifeMiles number to register for the offer. There is no guarantee that this will work and that you'll get the extra bonus miles but if you were contemplating buying LifeMiles before the end of the month to take advantage of this great offer it doesn't hurt to try to get the extra little bit of miles

It appears that using the method of adding your LifeMiles # to the URL does not work. LifeMiles definitely worked this one good to ensure only those targeted would get it.

Marriott: 5,000 Bonus Rewards Points for stays at Gaylord Hotels

Marriott acquired the Gaylord Hotel brand late in 2012 and this new offer is first systemwide "Gaylord Hotels' bonus promotion that I have seen from Marriott Rewards. I did a quick check on rates at several location and the bonus offer does not seem to inflate the best flexible rate price like many individual hotel stay offers. The advance purchase, non-refundable rate is cheaper but the 5,000 points in most cases should be worth more than the difference plus you get the flexibility of being able to cancel or rebook. I also checked the AAA for the Kissimmee location and that was also a little cheaper ($137 vs $149) but once again the 5,000 Marriott Rewards points should be worth $25-$50 depending on how you value them. Here is the offer as it will appear on FFB's Marriott Rewards page later today:

5,000 Bonus Points when you stay any nights at any Gaylord Hotel in Florida, Maryland,  Tennessee or Texas. Full Details and Online Booking Until May 31, 13
Participating Hotels:

Gaylord Palms Resort & Convention Center
Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center
Gaylord Opryland Resort & Convention Center
Gaylord Texan Resort & Convention Center

1,000 Free HHonors Points for joining HHonors via this Aeroflot promotion

Much like last fall, Hilton's Q2 Airline Bonuses are individualized rather than being a match for their own systemwide offer (ie Q1's Double Points or Miles). I have them all summarized in this post which includes this latest offer just added this morning. This one is for Aeroflot Bonus members but has an HHonors component whereby if you are not a member of Hilton's program yet you will get 1,000 HHonors points for joining via the registration link. You can always change your airline earning preference from Aeroflot to another airline after you completed your registration. Here is the offer as it appeared on my Aeroflot Bonus  page later today:

Earn up to 6,000 Extra Bonus Miles + 1,000 HHonors Bonus Points for stays at Hilton Hotels Worldwide. Receive 1,000 bonus miles for you first and second stay, and an additional 2,000 miles for the third and fourth stays. Plus if you are not an HHonors member and join via this promotion you will earn 1,000 bonus HHonors points. Full Details, Online Registration and Booking Until Jul 31, 13

United: Up to 1,500 Bonus Mileage Plus miles per night for hotel stays booked via United.com

This is somewhat of a rehash of part of yesterday's bonus offer highlight post but I felt this offer was deserving of its own post. It appears that United may want to move traffic to their site for hotel bookings and earn the commission for those hotel stays (despite partnering with PointsHound and Rocket Miles and having them buy miles form United) by providing a nice bonus offer for booking stays via United.com. This is the offer as it appeared on my MileagePlus page yesterday:

Earn up to 1,500 Bonus MileagePlus Miles per night on paid qualifying hotel stays booked through united.com/hotels. Maximum of 25,000 Bonus Miles awarded.
Earn 500 miles per night when you pay an average nightly rate between $49.00-$98.99
Earn 1,000 miles per night when you pay an average nightly rate between $99.00-$148.99
Earn 1,500 miles per night when you pay an average nightly rate between $149.00 or more

BalticMiles: 250 Bonus BalticMiles Points for taking photos at BalticMiles Partners


From BalticMiles:
A photo can now bring you bonus Points

Do this the next time you visit one of our partners

1. Take a photo with a BalticMiles card at any BalticMiles partner (see examples above).
2. Share it on the BalticMiles Facebook wall, and write at which partner the photo was taken.
3. Repeat at up to 5 different partners by April 30, and get 50 Points per picture. That’s 250 additional bonus Points!

The promo only runs until April 30th but is a relatively simply way to add 250 more points to your BalticMiles account especially if you live in Latvia or the Baltics. Even if you live outside of the Baltics and can make your way by BalticMiles hotel and/or car rental partners you should be able to get these points. I wonder if taking a picture of your card in front of your computer with PointsHound.com up in browser would count since they are a partner?

Full Terms & Conditions can be found here
