Airlines are looking for any means by which to raise cash right now and American Airlines is attempting to swell its coffers by offering flyers the opportunity to buy AAdvantage Miles at the lowest rate I think I've ever seen.
From now through to the end of April, Aer Lingus is offering some truly fantastic Business Class fares between select US cities and cities in Ireland, the United Kingdom, and continental Europe as the airline reminds passengers that travel between the US and UK/Ireland isn't covered by the ban and that US citizens and residents are still allowed to travel back and forth across the Atlantic unencumbered (at least for now).
It's been a while since we've seen any great cashback deals for hotel bookings but TopCashback is doing its best to get ouR attention by offering 8% cashback on most IHG properties worldwide. Also, unlike some hotel cashback deals that are doing the rounds, this offer doesn't reduce the cashback on offer if you hold elite status.
Shopping through online portals can be a great way to boost a loyalty account balance, to save some cash or to even prevent a loyalty balance from expiring and right now a number of the portals are offering a pretty good earnings rate for purchases made with Apple...although not all purchases will qualify.
Air France and KLM have issued discount codes for travelers making bookings via their UK websites which will deduct between £40 and £160 off the cost of bookings made this week. The terms of the Air France offer are different from the terms of the KLM offer but both should be pretty easy to use if you have a booking you need to make.
TAP Air Portugal is on a generous streak right now as it has just released its second discount code in two weeks. At the beginning of the month, TAP was offering an impressive 20% off almost all of its fares and now the airline back with a 2-day promotion (for Valentine's day) in which it's offering 10% off most fares (including Business Class for flights across its route network.
Right now Qatar Airways is offering a number of good Business Class fares for travel between US cities and Asia and, as Qatar Airways offers the Qsuite cabin on at least 2 of the 4 segments that all of these fares cover, this could be a very good opportunity to try the Qsuites out while raking in a lot of miles and elite credits towards American Airlines status.
American Express has been on a roll with its Hilton offers so far this year (in January we saw offers for Hilton in Mexico and for bookings at Tru and this month we've already seen offers for bookings at Waldorf Astoria, Conrad, DoubleTree and Tapestry properties) and now a new Hilton offer is appearing in Amex cardholder accounts - this one is for properties in Hawaii.
IHG has launched another "City Lights Sale" covering properties in most regions of the world, and guests are being offered discounts of "at least 15%" for stays made by 30 April 2020.
As far as I can tell, British Airways isn't running an official sale but that doesn't appear to have stopped the airline from publishing some truly excellent Premium Economy fares for roundtrip travel from London to a variety of cities in the United States.
