    Bonus Offer Picks of the Week: January 9 - 15, 2012

    Two weeks in and there is no shortage of new bonus offers except in the flight category! Surprisingly many airlines have yet to release new flight offers for 2012, the few we added this week were subject to regional restrictions or were from the not-so-big airline frequent flyer programs. Of all the offers we added to 30 airline, hotel and rail programs this past week here are our picks of the week:

    Bonus Offer For Flying
    United has renewed their Elite Status match program for 2012 which grants instant status for 90 days and a fast track to achieving full status:
    United Mileage Plus: Elite Status Match that offers top-tier flyers of most other airlines a comparable status in the MileagePlus® program. It only offered for MileagePlus Premier® Silver, Premier® Gold or Premier® Platinum levels*. If you meet the criteria to participate in the Premier status match offer, your account will be upgraded for 90 days to Premier Silver, Premier Gold or Premier Platinum status. Full Details. Until Dec 31, 12

    Bonus Offer for Staying (Airline Miles)
    Hilton has teamed up with numerous airlines to run bonus mileage offers alongside their Q1 points promo and of those we added last week this is our pick:
    Delta SkyMiles: 2,012 Bonus SkyMiles when you book and complete a minimum two-night stay at participating Hilton hotels and resorts Worldwide. Full Details Until Mar 31, 12

    Bonus Offer for Staying (Hotel Points)
    We added three new systemwide offers in this category from Starwood, IHG and Carlson. The latter, Carlson Hotels, has the best offering with the least restrictions on their offer:
    Carlson Hotels Club Carlson: Triple Gold Points for stays at participating Radisson, Country Inns & Suites By Carlson, Park Inn by Radisson and Park Plaza hotels worldwide. Full Details (Registration is required). Until Mar 16, 12

    Bonus Offer For Flying:
    With such a large selection of new bonus offers for flights added it made it hard to pick an offer but with little restrictions and global availability the following offer Emirates offer is my top pick

    Bonus Offer For Flying:
    I only added offers to three airlines this past week and honestly each program had some stand out offers with this Cathay offer being my pick of the week:

    Bonus Offer for Staying (Hotel Points)

    Bonus Offer Picks of the Week: April 2 - 8, 2012

    32 seems to be a common number as to the number of loyalty programs I add new bonus offers to in a week as was the case this past week again. There were lots of offers to choose from to make my pick and out of all them these are them:

    Bonus Offer Picks of the Week: April 9 - 15, 2012

    Last week was a four day week for adding new bonus offers so only 28 programs had new promotions posted to them on FFB:

    Bonus Offer for Flying
    The Finnair Plus program is celebrating its 20th anniversary with this crazy promotion, any takers on flying to at least 20 Finnair destinations?
    Finnair Plus: 100,000 Bonus Plus Points to all Finnair Plus members who fly Finnair to 20 different destinations in 2012. Full details. Register by Apr 30 for travel until Dec 31, 12

    Bonus Offer for Staying (Hotel Points)

    Bonus Offer for Driving
    Not too many new car rental offers were added this week and out of them this American AAdvantge offer is the stand out offer by far.

    Bonus Offer Picks of the Week: April16 - 22, 2012

    This past week saw a lot of amazing new bonus offers for flights, hotel stays, car rentals and more but I decided to make a theme for this week that looks at programs or companies that aren't seen in my Picks of the Week that often. I hope you enjoy this eclectic grouping of bonus offers:

    Bonus Offer for Flying
    Despite the return of Miles & More's myChoice promotion and it having a status mile option I have to give Virgin the nod just because we don't see too many flight offers from VS and this offer covers almost their entire network:
    Virgin Atlantic Flying Club: Earn up to 15,000 Bonus Flying Club Miles on all Virgin Atlantic routes Worldwide (Except Accra and Shanghai).
    5,000 bonus miles in Economy (2,500 per sector)
    10,000 bonus miles in Premium Economy (5,000 per sector)
    15,000 bonus miles in Upper Class (7,500 per sector)
    More... Register by May 13 for travel until Jun 15, 12

    Bonus Offer for Staying (Airline Miles)
    For most of you this may not be the absolute best offer I added this week but I made it my pick because more often than not the pick goes to one of the major hotel chains and I wanted to highlight a lesser known chain, plus this offer has quite a bit of time until it expires.
    Emirates Skywards: Double Skywards Miles for stays at Anantara Hotels & Resorts Worldwide. More... Until Oct 31, 12

    Bonus Offer for Staying (Hotel Points)
    The pick of the week for this category is the first systemwide promo for Accor Hotel's recently rebranded loyalty program:
    Accor Hotels Le Club: Triple Bonus Le Club Accorhotels Points for weekend stays at Accor hotels Worldwide More... Book by May 10 for stays until Jun 10, 12

    Bonus Offer for Driving
    A lot of similar car rental offers were posted this week but we don't see too many in this spot from Alamo so I wanted to highlight them like the Anantara offer above.
    Japan Airlines Mileage Bank: Triple Mileage Bank Miles for Alamo rentals of three or more consecutive days in the USA or Canada. More...Until Sep 30, 12

    Bonus Offer for Other Activities
    The trend this week seems to be highlighting programs or companies that don't make it into out top picks often so why not continue it in the last category. This offer has actually been around for years but now has an extra bonus added to it for online registrations:
    Royal Air Maroc Safar Flyer: Earn up to 4,000 Bonus Safar Flyer Miles for joining the Safar Flyer program. Earn 3,000 for joining plus an additional 1,000 if you do so online. More...

    Bonus Offer Picks of the Week: April 23 - 29, 2012

    Another great week of new bonus offer promotions has passed us by. Of the 50+ new offers added to 29 different programs on the FFB sites these are my picks of the week:

    Bonus Offer for Flying:
    This week was a toss up between Air Canada's 75th anniversary bonus miles promo and the American Airlines/Qantas Australia offer. I gave it to the latter strictly for offering the potential to earn a lot of miles
    American AAdvantage: Earn up to 20,000 Bonus AAdvantage Miles when you fly nonstop on Qantas Airways operated flights between the U.S. and Australia.
    Class of Service / Bonus Miles for Round-Trip travel
    First Class 20,000
    Business 15,000
    Premium Economy 10,000
    Economy 5,000
    More... Until Jun 30, 12

    Bonus Offer for Staying (Airline Miles)
    This one was easy, with Hyatt releasing their summer airline promo late last week there was no match for it:
    Hyatt Hotels (Various Airlines): Earn up to 5X Airline Miles for stays at all Hyatt Hotels worldwide. Earn 4X miles after your 2nd and 3rd eligible stay and 5X Miles after your 4th through 11th eligible stay. More... May 1 - Aug 31, 12

    Bonus Offer for Staying (Hotel Points)
    Although there were some nice offers added from IHG and Marriott I think this offer may appeal the best to my worldwide audience:
    Starwood Preferred Guest: Double Starpoints for stays at participating Starwood Hotels in Bangkok. More... Until Jun 30, 12
    Participating Hotels:
    Sheraton Grande Sukhumvit, Bangkok
    Royal Orchid Sheraton Hotel & Towers
    The St. Regis Bangkok
    Plaza Athénée Bangkok, A Royal Méridien Hotel
    Aloft Bangkok - Sukhumvit 11
    Four Points by Sheraton Bangkok, Sukhumvit 15
    The Westin Grande Sukhumvit, Bangkok

    Bonus Offer for Driving
    Hertz is starting to push more offers for their own loyalty program and the latest bonus promo is evidence of that:
    Hertz Gold Plus Rewards - Double Gold Plus Rewards Points on all paid rentals at participating Hertz Off Airport locations in the U.S. and Canada. More... Until Jun 30, 12 Residents of the U.S. and Canada only

    Bonus Offer for Other Activities
    No real stand out offers here so I gave the top pick to the offer that is probably the easiest to earn miles with:
    Air Baltic Baltic Miles - Triple Baltic Miles on all purchases made via Baltic Miles online shopping. More... Until May 31, 12

    Bonus Offer Picks of the Week: April 30 - May 6, 2012

    Another week of adding fine bonus offers to the FFB sites has come and gone. Some categories like Flights and Hotel Stays (for hotel points) had some really great offers added. What follows are my picks out of the almost 100 new bonuses posted:

    Bonus Offer for Flying
    I try not to use targeted offers in my picks of the week so that everyone can take advantage of them but occasionally some targeted offers come up that should be highlighted:
    United Mileage Plus: Earn up to 25,000 Bonus Mileage Plus Miles on qualifying roundtrips to any destination worldwide on United or United Express® operated flights. More... Until Jul 15, 12 Targeted Offer - May not work for everyone

    Bonus Offer for Staying (Airline Miles)
    An average amount of new airline mileage bonus offers for hotel stays were added this past week but there weren't any 'amazing' ones that really took the cake. Out of those added this is my pick:
    Delta SkyMiles: 750 Bonus SkyMiles per stay at La Quinta properties in the U.S., Mexico and Canada. Maximum bonus is 18,750 miles. More...Until Dec 31, 12
    Bonus Offer for Staying (Hotel Points)
    The decision for the pick of the week in this category was the toughest. It came down to Starwood's newest systemwide promo and Marriott's systemwide promo. I gave it to the latter because I feel it is more rewarding for those who are not making that many stays this summer
    Marriott Rewards: Earn a Free Night after every second qualifying stay at any participating Marriott Hotel Worldwide. A maximum of three free nights can be earned and then used at Category 1-4 hotels. More...Register by June 30 for stays Jun 1 - Aug 31, 12

    Bonus Offer for Driving
    With only six new bonuses added to only three programs it was relatively easy to make a pick for this category:
    Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan: Earn up to Triple Mileage Plan Miles on a qualifying rental at participating Avis airport locations in the United States and Canada.
    - Double bonus miles is valid on daily and weekend rentals with a 2-3 day length of rental using coupon MUAA117.
    - Triple bonus miles is valid on daily, weekly and weekend rentals with a 4 day minimum length of rental. using coupon MUAA118.
    More...[​IMG]Until Dec 31, 12

    Bonus Offer for Other Activities
    There were some really good 'other' offers posted this week including some that provided free points but when you can get a short haul flight for as little as $35 that offer has to be picked:
    Air Canada Aeroplan: Earn up to 16,500 Bonus Aeroplan Miles with the Aeroplan Star Challenge. Collect Aeroplan Stars for each transaction at over 150 Aeroplan partners. Receive 1,500 Bonus Aeroplan miles when you collect 35 stars or 16,500 bonus miles when you collect 70 stars. Earn 5 Instant stars if you have an Aeroplan Co-Brand credit card, 2 Stars per transaction at shopping partners, 3 stars per transaction for travel partners and 5 stars per Air Canada or Star Alliance flight segment.More... Until May 28, 12

    Bonus Offer Picks of the Week: May 7 - 13, 2012

    The past week was a lighter than usual for new bonus offer promotions with new posts to only 21 programs. Here are my picks of the week from all those new offers added:

    Bonus Offer for Flying
    Both Etihad and airBerlin are offering this following promotion so I tossed a coin and it came out to the former as the pick of the week:
    Etihad Guest: Double Guest Miles when you fly return from Berlin, Frankfurt, Munich and Düsseldorf to Abu Dhabi, and onwards to the Maldives, Phuket or Bangkok.Travel must originate in Germany. More... Jun 1 - Jul 31, 12

    Bonus Offer for Staying (Airline Miles)
    There weren't too many new airline offers for hotel stays this past week but of those added the following is my favorite
    Air Canada Aeroplan: 1,000 Bonus Aeroplan Miles for every stay at participating Marriott hotels across Canada. More... Until Sep 3, 12

    Bonus Offer for Staying (Hotel Points)
    This past week was really quiet for new hotel offers so I picked this targeted offer as my pick of the week:
    InterContinental Hotels Group Priority Club: 10,000 Bonus Priority Club Points when you stay 5 nights at any InterContinental hotel or resort in the U.S. Canada, Mexico, Latin America or the Caribbean. More... Until Jul 31, 12

    Bonus Offer for Driving

    US Airways Dividend Miles: 3,000 Bonus Dividend Miles on a qualifying rental of three or more consecutive days at participating Avis airport locations in the U.S. and Canada. More... Until Feb 28, 13

    Bonus Offer for Other Activities
    You've probably seen this offer posted a couple time this past week on FFB so no surprise it is my pick for an other offer:
    Avianca TACA LifeMiles: Double LifeMiles when you purchase LifeMiles online. Max 75,000 can be purchased and to receive the bonus you must have been a LifeMiles member as of May 1.More... Until May 31, 12

    Bonus Offer Picks of the Week: May 14 - 20, 2012

    Despite only 4 days of adding new bonus offers, last week was heavy in the number of promotions added to 38 programs from around the globe. Of the nearly 100 new bonuses available these are my picks of the week:

    Bonus Offer for Flying
    You may have seen this offer as my highlight for Monday May 14th and here it is again as my pick of the week. If you think you can be a top Star Alliance flyer and are done achieving status with your preferred program I would suggest taking the Aeroplan route with this offer as they are offering an additional 50,000 miles if you fly on 10 or more Star Alliance airlines!
    Star Alliance: 15,000 Bonus Miles (up to 65,000 for Aeroplan) to the top fifteen passengers who complete eligible flights on the most number of Star Alliance member airlines Worldwide during the promotional period per frequent flyer program. More... Until Nov 14, 12

    Bonus Offer for Staying (Airline Miles)
    Quite often when you get a major mileage bonus offer from a hotel chain it covers multiple airlines and that is exactly what this weeks pick is:
    Fairmont Hotels: Double Airline Miles when you book an Everyone's an Original summer rate at participating Fairmont Hotels Worldwide. Full Details. Until Sep 30, 12

    Bonus Offer for Staying (Hotel Points)
    What other offer could really be the pick of the week when its the week that Radisson's Big Night Giveaway launches? (As long as there is still space to register in the first 100,000!)
    Carlson Hotels Club Carlson: 50,000 Bonus Gold Points when you complete 1 eligible stay at any Radisson or Radisson Blue location Worldwide. Limited to the first 100,000 registrants, after that anyone who registers will receive 15,000 bonus points. Full Details. Until Jul 15, 12

    Bonus Offer for Driving
    There were at least three offers that I could have used as my pick of the week but this one stood out the most as it rewards multiple rentals on an increasing basis and very rarely do we see Malaysia Airlines in any of my highlights or picks of the week:
    Malaysia Airlines Enrich: Earn up to Quadruple Enrich Miles when you rent a car with Avis for 3+ days Worldwide. First rental gets you base Miles, the second gets you double Miles, the third triple Miles and the fourth quadruple Miles. Full Details. Until Jul 31, 12

    Bonus Offer for Other Activities

    Despite the large amount of new bonus offers added this past week, the 'other' category only saw 3 new promotions added with the following being my pick of the week:
    British Airways Executive Club: 50% Bonus Avios when you convert your Diners Club Club Rewards points into Avios. Full Details Until Jun 30, 12 Residents of the U.S. and Canada only

    Here are the picks of the week from all the bonuses added to 25 airline and hotel loyalty programs over the past week:

    Bonus Offer for Flying
    In a week filled with either targeted or residency restricted offers there were very few new flight offers that are available to the masses with the following pick being one of those:
    United Mileage Plus: Double Mileage Plus Miles on flights to/from any Copa Airlines or Copa Airlines Colombia (operated by Aero República) destination, connecting through Panama, or to/from select Copa destinations: Curacao, Netherlands Antilles (CUR); Guanacaste, Costa Rica (LIR); Iquitos, Peru (IQT); Las Vegas, Nevada (LAS); and Recife, Brazil (REC). More...
    Jul 15 - Sep 15, 12

    Bonus Offer for Staying (Airline Miles)
    A lot of similar offers were posted to various airlines this week and they all could have been in this spot so I closed my eyes and picked one of them (this offer is actually available to all Swissotel airline partners, just see the link):
    Air China Phoenix Miles: Double Phoenix Miles Kilometers when booking the Seasonal Saver rate for 2 or more nights at Swissôtel Hotels & Resorts Worldwide. More... Jun 30 -Sep 2, 12
    Bonus Offer for Staying (Hotel Points)
    As long as this offer hasn't maxed out in registrations it is another great one from Carlson Hotels to take advantage of:

    Bonus Offer for Driving

    There were only two new car rental offers added, one from Alaska Airlines, the other from Gulf Air, I would have to believe more of my readers would be able to take advantage of the former so here it is:
    Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan: Triple Mileage Plan Miles when you rent a Budget vehicle for 3 or more consecutive days at participating airport locations in the U.S. and Canada. More...[​IMG] Until Dec 31, 12

    Bonus Offer for Other Activities
    By far the best offer added to the 'other' category is this transfer promotion from Aeroplan:
    Air Canada Aeroplan: Earn up to 40,000 Bonus Aeroplan Miles when you convert points from a wide selection of Aeroplan partner loyalty programs (hotel, car rental, credit card and points.com). More... Until Jun 18, 12
    Bonuses are as follows and are awarded on a cumulative basis (not per transaction like previous promotions)
    Convert Points to
    5,000 Aeroplan Miles to earn a 1,000 Mile bonus
    10,000 Aeroplan Miles to earn a 2,000 Mile bonus

    Bonus Offer Picks of the Week: June 25 - July 1, 2012

    Despite working the full five days last week on the FFB sites I only added new bonus offers to 23 airline and hotel programs. The primary reasons was a lack of bonus offers to post! The end of a month usually sees a slow down in the release of new bonuses as the loyalty programs tend to wait until the 1st of the next month to push out the next promotions although June 2012 was even slower than normal. Out of the offers I added here are my picks of the week:
