Hilton's current points sale in which members can buy up to 320,000 points is ending today (11 May) so there are just hours left to load up with any points that you may need at a reasonable rate. Keep in mind that used tactically, this sale could open up a world of great value redemptions, and that if you have any kind of Hilton Honors status, some of the deals that this sale opens up are nothing short of fantastic.
Hyatt has been running its current points sale for nearly a month but with the sale ending tomorrow, there are a little under two days for Hyatt fans to make the most of the 25% discount that the hotelier is currently offering. As Hyatt points sales go, this one isn't too bad and used correctly, could save you quite a bit of money.
In the past 12 months, we've seen Alaska Airlines offer up a variety of mileage sales and on at least two occasions it has offered the very best deals we have ever seen that airline offer. Now the airline is back with a sale that runs through the middle of May and it's a sale that sees Mileage Plan members being targeted for mystery bonuses.
This is nothing more than a rehash of the article that I usually post whenever IHG Rewards comes up with a sale that offers anything but a 100% bonus, so it's going to be one of the shorter posts that I write this year. All I really want this post to achieve is to make newcomers to the miles & points hobby aware that the current IHG Rewards Club points sale isn't very good and to let them know that we're definitely going to see better sales than this one in months ahead.
United MileagePlus is currently selling miles with a bonus of up to 85% and an annual purchase limit of 175,000 miles. This isn't the best deal we're likely to see United offer before the end of the year (we've already seen a 100% bonus offer earlier this month) but as the math will show, there are definitely going to be times when miles purchased in this sale will save you money.
British Airways has launched a new Avios sale in which it's offering its top bonus (50%) on all Avios purchased made through 11 April. Considering the uncertainty that's still surrounding travel in 2021 and considering the flexibility of Avios bookings, this may be a useful sale to use to top up an account.
Flying Blue has launched a new mileage sale which sees the Air France/KLM loyalty program offering members a bonus of up to 80% on miles purchased through 11 April 2021. While not the best deal that we've ever seen offer, this sale can still represent a good opportunity for anyone who needs to top up an account.
The current Marriott Bonvoy points sale promotion started back in the middle of February and for the past month it has been offering Bonvoy members a bonus of up to 50% on purchases of 2,000 points or more. Generally speaking, this is one of the best deals that Marriott usually offers in its points sales but if you have an account that you need to top up, you only have the rest of today to do so.
American Airlines has launched a new mileage sale in which it is offering a discount of 40% on the regular price of miles. There's nothing majorly complicated about this sale as for once, this is an AAdvantage sale in which it doesn't matter how many or how few miles you buy, the cost per miles doesn't vary.
Etihad is back with a new mileage sale and it's a similar sale to the one we saw the airline offer in September of last year. That's good news because September's sale was very good and 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).
