As summer sadly winds down, so do many promotions. August 31 seems to be an important deadline for several promotions in the point and miles world, so this is just a friendly reminder about some of the deadlines that are approaching; I don’t want you to miss out on an opportunity! If I missed anything notable, please feel free to post a comment, and I’ll update the list accordingly.
August 31 is…
…the last day to receive a free $25 gift card when you load $200 or more onto an American Express prepaid card. This is an easy gateway to $25. Up until August 31st you can receive a complimentary $25 gift card after loading $200 or more onto an American Express prepaid card – no credit check required. You may refer to my original post about this offer for the complete details.
…the last day complete your stays for the Marriott Reward’s “Summer Bonus” Promotion. Assuming that you’ve already registered before June 30, you might want to reflect on how you stand with this promotion. This is a pretty lucrative “stay 2 get 1” promotion where you can earn up to three free nights with Marriott Rewards Summer Bonus when you stay at any participating Marriott hotel worldwide. Stay twice at any participating hotel between June 1 and August 31, 2012, and earn one free night after every second paid stay, up to three free nights. Enjoy your free nights at any of 2,900+ category 1-4 hotels.
…the last day to take advantage of Starwood’s “Bonus Beginnings” promotion if you’re targeted. If you haven’t done so already, check to see if your SPG account is targeted for the “Bonus Beginnings” promotion (related post). I wasn’t targeted, but Kevin’s account was, and his offer was 2,000 bonus Starpoints after completing one stay by August 31. Luckily I didn’t forget about this promotion as it came in handy for us this weekend in Philadelphia. We completed a relatively-cheap stay at the Aloft at PHL using Kevin’s account so we’re able to receive the bonus.
…the last day to play Marriott Reward’s Facebook game, “What’s Your Travel Type?”. There are some pretty fantastic prizes, so if if you have a few minutes to spare, don’t forget to enter to win daily! What’s Your Travel Type? (I’m a discoverer).
…the last day to get 4x or 5x airline miles with Hyatt stays. Hyatt Gold Passport’s 4x/5x airline mile summer promotion is starting to wind down, but there’s still a few days to take advantage of it. Head on over to Loyalty Traveler for the complete promotion run-down.
…the last day to earn up to 5,000 American Airlines miles from Avis and up to 3,000 with Budget. Need to rent a car this week? If so, you have until August 31 to take advantage of 2 great offers with Avis and Budget. Head on over to AAdvantageGeek for all of the promotion details.
…and don’t forget to keep getting your daily 100 Club Carlson Goldpoints!
