2 Tickets To Italy For $1,000 And Dumpster Diving. The Best of The Rest For Monday, August 17th 2015

The Best of the Rest is my effort to summarize all the travel/miles & points stories that interested me on a daily basis but didn’t have time to write about in length.  On a daily basis, I try to keep track of roughly 100 different blogs (try being the operative word) that have interesting things for you and I to learn from.  Some are passed along without comment, while I add my analysis to others.   This is your shortcut to find out what’s going on in the travel world without having to read dozens […]

Pizza Week In Review

This week saw me squeeze a whirlwind of meetings into stops in Houston and San Antonio, along with a weather delay that trapped me in DFW an extra night.  Along the way, my blog alter ego covered a wide range of topics.  In case you missed it, here were some of those posts: Miles & Points American Airlines and Citibank are targeting bonuses to cardholders again this quarter.  I was pretty impressed with my bonus offer, and I’m not the only one.  I think I like it better than last […]

Good Bonus Offers From United Airlines Shopping Portal

Through April 16th, United Airlines has some decent bonuses through their shopping portal. Specifically, 5 miles per dollar for Sears is one of the best offers I can recall seeing lately.  Overstock is 4 miles/$, another solid offer. Don’t tell my wife is 10 miles per dollar. Old Navy is 5 miles per dollar as well, another one we can’t share with Mrs. Pizza. The post Good Bonus Offers From United Airlines Shopping Portal was published first on Pizza In Motion. Don’t miss any of the daily travel tips, tricks and strategies […]

American Airlines Mini Shopping Mall Bonus

The American Airlines shopping mall continues the trend of smaller back-to-school bonuses with a 1,000 mile bonus for $200 in purchases in the next week. The timing is a very narrow window.  You only have until August 25th to spend $200.  But, it’s really not that hard to spend $200 on every day purchases when you consider the hundreds of merchants on the shopping portals. Taking advantage of this offer and the other small United Airlines MileagePlus offer out recently would net you an extra 3,000 miles.  That doesn’t sound […]

American Airlines is out with some individual bonus offers for specific merchants. Staples is up to 3 miles instead of 2. Magazines are 25 miles per dollar instead of 20. […]

American Airlines Is Giving Bonus Shopping Miles For Christmas

American Airlines is giving away bonus miles for specific spending thresholds on their shopping portal for the Christmas season.  Through December 2, you can earn bonus miles in 3 tiers:   This essentially breaks down to an extra 10 points/dollar as long as you hit one of the three spending thresholds.  All of these are certainly easy enough to hit if you consider your day-to-day purchases along with any holiday gifts.  And, this offer is a whole lot better than last year’s offer of 500 miles for every $250 spent. […]
