JetBlue deserves some credit. As their competition keeps dropping the ball, devaluing points, and taking away benefits…these guys continue to keep loyalty in their loyalty program. Take a second to register here and you’ll get 15% of your points back on award travel through July 31st. As always, you’ll also get 10% back if you have a JetBlue Plus credit card.

Note: I got all of the emails yesterday. Haven’t read them and haven’t passed them on yet. But don’t be surprised if you get a hypothetical invite in the upcoming months.

Have a great weekend, nerds!



Let’s say in an imaginary world, the following hypothetical situation happened…

What if a loyal and trusted reader wanted to put together a group where people could buy, sell, and trade miles/points with each other? Of course there would be no charge to join. Would you be interested in being part of a group like that?

Note: I’m well aware that this isn’t allowed within the rules of miles and points programs. It’s a hypothetical question in an imaginary world.

Because of the response size, please use the email address below to answer the question. It would help to add the subject “Hypothetical Barter Group.”

Reminder: Only send emails to that address when it’s specifically mentioned (like in this case). It isn’t the normal inbox and doesn’t get checked regularly.


Virgin Fan Rachel

Reader Rachel asked me to give out the following (all on Virgin America)…

  • Two 25% discount codes for round-trip tickets.
    (Main cabin only. Travel before 2/28/18)
  • Two codes each worth a $150 discount on a companion ticket.
    (Round-trip main cabin. Travel by 8/31/17)

If you have a use for any of these, please let me know which one. First come, first served.

Edit: All gone.

Tuesday Triple

  • Ebates is up to 10% cashback for a bunch of stores. It’s today only. Worth a look.

  • Here’s an easy match if you have any status with Hilton.

Start Of Week Deals

Thanks to readers Ali and Jon for sending these over the weekend:

  • Pick up 5,000 bonus Alaska miles for signing up and taking a flight.
  • You can get an extra 10% transferring Citi ThankYou points to Etihad through July 5th.
  • Click here, then try HV2PB and HV2MT when it asks for a promo code. The first is for Platinum with American and the second one is a status fast track. Usually, these are pretty highly targeted, so odds say neither will work. On the other hand, it takes 20 seconds…roll the damn dice.
