Just a couple of weeks after United closed its Black Friday sale in which it was offering a 100% bonus on the purchases of miles, the airline is back with another 100% offer for MileagePlus members looking to top up accounts. This sale, however, is slightly different from the Black Friday sale as the number of miles on offer is less.
Delta and American Express have announced that holders of Platinum and Reserve Delta SkyMiles American Express Cards (personal and business varieties) will receive a 25% increase in the number of Medallion Qualification Miles (MQM) they can earn through the cards' "Status Boost" milestones.
In the middle of October American Airlines announced a series of changes to the AAdvantage program with a view to keeping its elite flyers happy. Among other things, the changes announced included the introduction of new rewards for flyers who earn AAdvantage Executive Platinum and Platinum Pro status but further details surrounding these rewards weren't forthcoming. Now, American has told us more and there's some very good news for Platinum Pro elites.
Are you a British Airways Gold or Gold Guest List elite member? If you are, you may have been targeted by British Airways for a reasonably easy opportunity to earn a Gold upgrade for up to two passengers.
Earlier this year Virgin Atlantic gave its Flying Club members an early Christmas present when it announced a series of positive changes to its loyalty program. Between awarding elite credits on award bookings to making its vouchers considerably more useable, Virgin Atlantic has already used 2020 to improve the Flying Club's offering significantly. Now it may be about to improve it again.
Etihad is back with another mileage sale and it's the same sale we've seen the airline offer in the past...but with a twist. With Etihad offering a flyer-friendly award chart for redemptions on American Airlines this could be a good chance to buy miles cheaply with a view to booking American's saver awards (if you can find them).
If you missed out on buying American Airlines AAdvantage Miles in the Black Friday sale, the airline has a new promotion for you. While the standard "buy miles" promotion that American is currently running is nothing short of terrible, the "gift miles" promotion that it's running in parallel is one that's worthy of closer attention.
American Airlines has announced that it will be sending each and every member of the AAdvantage program a gift this festive season and members of the program who are based in the United States will be entered into a draw to win six mega prizes.
The offers we've seen British Airways publish for Black Friday/Cyber Monday have mostly been embarrassingly bad. Fortunately, the Avios sale that the airline has been running (and which ends today) has offered at least one opportunity to get some value.
United has been running its Black Friday mileage sale since Wednesday and, as a lot of us expected, it's a slightly better promotion than the sale it was offering up until last week. The sale ends tonight so you have just a few hours left to make the most of the 100% bonus and a re-increased annual cap if you need to top up a MileagePlus account.
