The September 2019 Flying Blue Promo awards cover travel between 1 November and 31 December 2019 and while there'rs a real dearth of premium cabin options this month (you won't be globe-trotting at a discount with these promo awards), there are still a few very attractive deals for travel (in either direction) between North America and Europe.
United is back with another short-term mileage sale in which it's offering MileagePlus members bonuses of up to 85% through 27 August. Compared to some of the airline’s more recent sales this is a definite improvement (and may offer good value for some) but it’s not the best deal we’ve seen this year.
Singapore Airlines has published its 'Spontaneous Escapes' for September 2019 and, as usual, the airline is offering discounts of up to 30% on Business Class, Premium Economy and Economy Class award bookings on select routes.
For the past couple of weeks, British Airways has been running an Avios sale in which it has been offering members of its Executive Club the chance to earn a bonus of up to 45% on the Avios they buy. This sale ends on 18 August (Sunday) so you have just a few days left to make the most of this deal if you think the math works in your favor.
American Express has been offering a cashback + bonus miles sign-up deal on two of its co-branded Delta credit cards over the past few weeks and, with under 48 hours to go before the offer expires, I thought I’d highlight the options that are currently available for anyone who may not have seen them.
If we’re in a month with at least 28 days in it there’s almost bound to be an American Airlines miles sale in progress so, with the last sale having ended just ended a few days ago, it’s no surprise to see the airline back with another attempt to squeeze some money out of its flyers.
Etihad Guest has announced a partnership with Booking.com which allows members to earn miles for bookings made through a dedicated co-branded version of Booking.com’s website.
American Express Membership Rewards has launched a great targeted transfer offer for cardholders looking to boost their Avios balances in the British Airways Executive Club, Aer Lingus Aer Club, and Iberia Plus...and something which may be a glitch (or a nice new option) looks very interesting too.
Aer Lingus’ Aer Club has launched an Avios sale in which it’s offering members the chance to buy Avios and receive a bonus of up to 45%. Having run the numbers, it looks like this may be a sale worth looking into if you’re short an Avios or two...especially as the maximum number of Avios you can buy has been increased.
It's August and that means it's time for the "back to school" sales, deals and promotions and American Airlines, United Airlines, Alaska Airlines, and Southwest are all offering bonus points for hitting spending targets through their shopping portals - Delta doesn't appear to be offering such a deal.
