Check out Ric’s post at Loyalty Traveler where he does a great job summing up Marriott point giveaways at over 9 different blogs! Most of these giveaways expire this week and are free to enter, so be sure to check them out today! Even winning just one of them is enough for your own hotel stay at a luxury Marriott property!
Also in travel news is that Virgin America is having a labor day weekend sale on their main cabin select and first class tickets! That means more leg room, more overhead space, and complimentary cocktail drinks + better food service.
Travel is only for August 30 through Sept 4th, and you must book by Sept 3rd.
If you tie this in 20% off Virgin America coupon going around, then this could be a pretty sweet deal if you want to fly in style.
Price example: SF to NY is $399 for main cabin select and $799 for first class during this sale. With the 20% off, that’s $319.20 for main cabin select or $639.20 for first class roundtrip! Not absolutely epic prices but definitely a good deal for first class.
Virgin America is also running a general fare sale (economy) for flights booked by August 29th. Must fly Sept 5 through Dec 12th.
