American Airlines is giving away 560,000 AAdvantage miles to celebrate the launch of their 787. You have to be on Instagram to enter. In case you missed it, here’s my ride on the inaugural AA 787 flight a few weeks ago.
Interested in earning free travel but feel a bit overwhelmed with the complexity of all these different offers?

The American Express Premier Rewards Gold card is getting better.

15% off Frontier flights code expires tonight (for flights departing Tuesday, Wednesday and Saturday).
