In a new feature here on FFB we’ll highlight the previous month’s bonuses in numbers. In the end the final tally can and usually is higher as limited time bonuses that last perhaps a few days only make it onto the FFB blog and not onto the main site and thus are not included in these numbers.
October by the numbers:
Total Number of Bonuses: 306
Total Number of Programs with new bonuses: 75
Top 5 Airline Programs – # of Bonuses
1. Singapore Airlines KrisFlyer – 15
2. (tie) British Airways Executive Club & Qatar Airways Privilege Club – 14
4. Cathay Pacific Asia Miles – 12
5. (tie) Air Canada/Aeroplan & Thai Airways Royal Orchid Plus – 11

1. Marriott Rewards – 14
2. Le Club accorhotels – 10
3. (tie) Starwood Preferred Guest & Stash Hotel Rewards – 7
5. IHG Rewards Club – 5
What do these numbers mean? Well they can tell you which programs make it easier to earn more miles or points with but that can also indicate that there are more miles competing for awards making availability tougher. Ultimately you have to remember that bonuses are key to growing you program balances and should be utilized at all times!
Did you know that FrequentFlyerBonuses.com
covers the most loyalty promotions out of all the major frequent
flyer/travel points websites and blogs? In fact in a survey we
conducted approximately only 30% of the offers FFB passes along to you
are covered by other websites and blogs. And of those thirty odd
percent, FFB is the first to post these offers over 60% of the time!
(and is the first and only one for the other ~70%). If you are a global
traveller and haven’t been using FFB you should do so now and bookmark
it! It is a valuable tool to have in your quest for more miles, more
points and more rewards.
