I think we can all agree that the most exciting thing to do is leisure travel! Why not show up looking the cosmopolitan part this season with some great new luggage. Ebags is having a 60% off sale for most of their inventory … (of course only 30% off Tumi, but still!) … Plus for the next few days, you will get 12% back from ebates! So that’s saving 72% off for some great new gifts or luggage for you … or 42% off the best luggage in the world!
If you’re not signed up for ebates yet, you will also get a free $10 gift card … it’s a win win!
TripAlertz is giving you $5 per referral with NO purchase required. It will be easy to rack up these bonuses since your referral just needs to sign up ~ not even make a purchase! Personally, I have stayed at 5 Five Star Hotel in New York City for half price! Really doesn’t get too much better than that kind of savings! Don’t think you’ll use it? Trust me, if you get just a partial of your email list to sign up …. the offers will be VERY tempting. Also, these credits post almost instantly … so if you get going now … your holiday getaway may just be WAY less expensive thank you anticipated. This is one of the TRULY free ways to travel still left.

Sorry for the long hiatus! I wish I could say I was on safari since May, but as you all know life gets in the way sometimes. However, it doesn’t mean I haven’t been earning points and miles during my absence. The reason I had to bust the computer back out and blog was to tell you about the United special bonus miles available right now.
As holiday shopping season approaches, (can you believe it?!) United mileageplusshopping.com is offering 500 bonus miles per $250 you spend, up to 2500 free miles. That’s on top of the miles you are already earning.
Plus now, some of my favorite stores are offering bonus deals, like drugstore.com … Instead of the usual 3 miles per dollar, they are offering 6 miles per dollar. PLUS, if you have a Chase United credit card, you will earn 9 miles per dollar! Yes! I could definitely buy my shampoo, razors, supplements, and a zillion other things that I actually need from drugstore.com this month!
One other exciting United bonus going on now is the 3,000 mile dining bonus. Dine twice at participating restaurants and earn a 3,000 mile bonus! Wow! This offer if valid for new members of the United dining program. However, if you are already signed up for a dining program for another airline or hotel program, you are still able to sign up for the United dining program and score your 3,000 free miles!
US Airways has a new promotion for taking surveys. Get 250 bonus miles when you sign up and another 250 miles when you complete your first survey. You’ll earn Whiteboard Points for taking surveys tailored to your interests and then you can redeem those points for miles.
If you didn’t know, American Airlines is merging with US Airways, so this could end up being 500 free AAdvantage miles!
Earn between 900 and 1,500 miles for only 99 cents! In the shopping portals, you can subscribe to New York Times digital subscription for 4 weeks for just 99 cents and net lots of miles for doing so.
Cheers and happy flying!
