I don't often publish posts on a weekend but Briggs and Riley has launched a flash sale that I think some readers may want to know about. There are discounts of up to 50% available on various items in the carry-on and checked-luggage departments so there are some very good deals on offer, but with the sale only running through Sunday, you only have a couple of days to grab any bargains that you find.
American Express is currently running a number of offers for stays at IHG properties in the United States (I wrote about the latest offer earlier today) and now it looks as if Chase has joined in too. I'm currently seeing two different offers on two different Chase-issued credit cards but there may be other versions of these offers out there.
American Express is still running an incredible number of hotel offers that are valid through to the end of the year (these are offers available for properties that are part of the Hilton, IHG, and Best Western portfolios), but now we’re starting to see a few offers appear that have cardholders covered for 1Q 2021. The latest such offer is for a nice saving at Crowne Plaza properties in the United States.
Most of California may currently be under a stay at home order of one kind or another (I've had 4 months of stay at home orders this year so you have my sympathies) but Alaska Airlines is doing its bit to put a smile on Californian faces (and the faces of anyone wanting to visit California) with an excellent "buy one, get one free" offer that it's running through to the end of today.

The latest such offer is for a nice saving at Loews properties in the US and Canada.
There are currently a number of very nice limited-time credit card offers for bonus points or savings for spending made at Amazon so as I happen to be shopping for Apple and Sonos products in the current Black Friday sales, I thought I'd share some of the deals that I've seen on Amazon - post updated for Cyber Monday.
Kimpton is the very popular boutique brand that sits within the IHG portfolio and which, over the past couple of years, has started appearing in more and more locations outside of the United States. Right now you can save 25% off Kimpton's best flexible rates for stays into September 2021.
Rakuten's Black Friday offers are now live and as I said a few days ago, the portal is offering 15% cash back or 15 Amex Membership Rewards Points per dollar spent at over 600 stores. At some popular stores (like Saks 5th Avenue) the returns are even higher. With the stores included in this promotion also offering their own Black Friday deals, this is a great time to stack savings and to snap up some bargains.
Choice Hotels is currently running a couple of promotions that should stack together very nicely. The first promotion is offering between 20% and 30% off stays taken by the end of the year (US only), while the second promotion is offering 2,000 or 5,000 points depending on the number of nights you stay by the end of the year.
Marriott is currently running a sale in which it's offering up to 40% off its standard rates on weekend stays in Europe, the Middle East, and Africa. The sale runs through 30 November so there are still a few days in which to do some research and to book but don't leave things too late as there are a limited number of rooms available at the promotional rates.
