Alaska's Mileage Plan program has launched a new mileage sale in which it's offering members the chance to buy miles with a bonus of up to 50% thrown in. Although this isn't the biggest bonus we've seen Alaska Airlines offer this year, the relatively low cost of miles in this sale means that there are still some fantastic deals to be had if you know where to look.
Marriott Bonvoy has launched its first Points sale promotion since the middle of July and this time around it's offering members bonuses of up to 50% when they buy points by 22 October. Moreover, and for the second time this year, Marriott has further increased the number of points a member can buy in a year.
United has launched a flash mileage sale which lasts through to the end of the day on 16 September and as the sale is offering the highest bonus we generally see United publish, and as United has increased the number of miles you can buy to 225,000 (from 175,000), this may be one of the better times to top up an account if the math works for you.
Since the middle of last week, Choice Privileges Rewards has been running a flash sale in which it has been offering members a 40% bonus when they purchase a minimum of 15,000 points. If you're a fan of Choice properties this is probably a sale that's worth looking into but with the promotion ending today you have just a few hours left to participate.
Hyatt has launched a points sale which runs through the end of the month and it's offering World of Hyatt members a discount on the price they pay for points rather than offering the usual bonus points that we often see. What this means is that although the headline number (25%) doesn't look particularly impressive, the final price you pay per point isn't too bad at all.
Towards the last week of June, Alaska Airlines launched a mileage sale with an interesting twist: Buy miles with a bonus now and earn the chance to buy more miles down the line with a much bigger bonus on offer. A few weeks ago, the bigger bonus received a very nice boost from 60% to 70% (the biggest bonus we've ever seen Alaska Airlines offer) but the offer ends today so you have just hours left to participate.
Iberia is back with a new Avios sale and by most measures, this is very definitely a sale to consider if you're happy booking travel between now and mid-2021. The cost per mile is good, award availability looks healthy and with Iberia offering a few good low-surcharge award options there could be some good deals to be had here.
United is back with another mileage sale in which it's offering MileagePlus members a "mystery bonus". The last such sale ran through the middle of July and offered targeted bonuses of up to 100% and, a little surprisingly, this latest sale appears to be offering MileagePlus members the same kind of deal. For the second month running, I've been targeted for a 100% bonus and I can't remember the last time that happened. There's a strong chance that it has never happened before.
Hyatt has been running its current points sale since the middle of July but today is your last chance to take advantage. When this sale first launched it wasn't particularly exciting (the 40% sales are the ones we normally look out for) but, since then, Hyatt has started to offer a rebate of up to 25% on award stays made by 8 October. For anyone looking to travel in the next few months that makes this sale considerably more attractive.
Flying Blue has launched a new mileage sale and although this may not appear to be the greatest of times in which to consider buying miles, there's one reason why this sale may be worth a second look - this is the best deal I ever remember seeing on Flying Blue Miles. While most Flying Blue mileage sales offer a bonus of up to 75%, this sale sees the top bonus set at an impressive 100%.
