Much of the world’s attention over the past few days have been focused on the Philippines and the awful destruction there left in the wake of Typhoon Haiyon. There are many ways to give towards the relief effort that is starting to help the hundreds of thousands of people displaced and in dire conditions. I wanted to highlight two methods today to donate today. The first method is through this Crowdrise website from United Airlines, raising funds towards three charities which are working on relief efforts. MileagePlus members who donate…… (click read more!)
The holiday season is upon us, and for some of us, that means shipping out gifts or merchandise to both loved ones and customers.

The offer’s highlights: Save up to 26% on UPS shipping prices through this program. Earn 3 miles per $1 spent on all UPS shipments on your account for any shipments made now through November 30th. (This is not…… (click read more!)
There has been a lot of chatter in the travel blogs over the past 24 hours about United Airlines’s announcement regarding changes to the cost of award flights. Most of the chatter are negative rants and posts of displeasure. I wanted to highlight one of my favorite blogs to follow, MommyPoints, as she breaks down the changes to us in my favorite format: a bullet point list. From MommyPoints: – There are no changes to award redemptions in the lower 48 or Canada at the economy, business, or first class…… (click read more!)

Yesterday one of my favorite blogs, TheFlightDeal, posted an AMAZING deal for San Francisco (SFO) to San Juan, Puerto Rico (SJU) for as low as $311 roundtrip via United Airlines. The price came down to roughly 3.9 cents a mile on an international flight–which is an amazing deal! I could not resist, so I snagged one of these SFO to SJU flights for myself for a free weekend in May. It is exactly what I need to achieve my platinum premier status for United. The fare is good for limited…… (click read more!)
United’s MileagePlus Dining program is something that I appreciate, although I don’t honestly actively seek out because of the low availability of good restaurants in my area. But regardless, I add all of the credit cards in my wallet to the program so that no matter where I am dining, I can be sure to score extra United miles in the event the restaurant is a participant of the MileagePlus Dining program. And now for a limited time, new MileagePlus Dining members will receive a 1,000 United miles bonus for…… (click read more!)
MyPoints is an online rewards program that gives you points for participating in surveys, partner offers, and for using their coupons. Yes, you heard the last part correctly: you get points by saving money and actually using coupons! I think many people disregard MyPoints because the rewards do not seem worth the effort (i.e. it takes 4,600 MyPoints points to redeem for a $25 Visa Gift Card). And at typically 10 to 75 points per survey you take, I don’t blame them for thinking that way. But here’s the secret…… (click read more!)
