Cashback on Marriott Gift Card Purchases Ending on December 31

Marriott is ending cashback on purchases of gift cards effective on December 31, 2012. Early November, I wrote a piece about maximizing Marriott bonuses for buying gift cards and getting some cashback in the process. You can access the article here. Apparently, this opportunity to save some more is coming to an end on December 31, 2012.


You still have more than a week to make gift card purchases that count for cashback. There are few offers for miles, Marriott Rewards points, or premium loaded to the card for buying them.


It seems that all good will come to an end at some point. I have purchased Marriott gift cards and received come cashback in the process. I know that 5% can seem inconsequential, but after you stack up all the different promotions, the savings can be significant.

Air France-KLM Flying Blue Promo Awards (50% Discount) Are Out For January – March 2013

Air France and KLM’s Flying Blue program releases a list of promotional destinations every couple of months that are redeemable for half the usual number of miles. They just announced the latest list of destinations that are bookable from December 30, 2012 (earlier for Flying Blue elites) that you can access here.

Thing to note is that you can book these also as one way.  These are not only for originating from Europe as all the destinations are valid for both directions.  Awards allow the origin/destination in Europe to be in zones 1, 2, and 3, basically meaning that these awards are valid from/to anywhere in Europe.















Note that zone 3 includes countries in North Africa + Israel:

Europe 1
Belgium, France, Germany, Ireland, United Kingdom, Netherlands, Switzerland, Luxembourg

Europe 2
Austria, Balearic Islands ,Finland, Denmark, Italy, Malta, Norway, Portugal, Spain , Sweden

Europe 3
Albania, Algeria, Belarus, Bosnia Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Cyprus, Canary Islands, Croatia, Croatia, Czech Republic, Estonia, Greece, Hungary, Israel, Libya, Lithuania, Latvia, Macedonia, Moldova, Morocco, Poland, Romania, West Russia, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Turkey, Tunisia, Ukraine.

Thing to remember is that Flying Blue charges rather hefty taxes and fees for award tickets. The fees are mainly fuel surcharges (YQ) that they collect. As a result, it rarely makes sense to redeem for an economy class ticket. Also, there are no changes or cancelations of any kind allowed on promo tickets. You either use it or lose it.

You can sign up for the Flying Blue account and have a look at the availability. I would suggest first trying to find availability for the long haul flights and work the connecting fights, if needed, separately.


These promo awards can make lot of sense if you have Flying Blue miles in your account and are looking for one way or business class award. The fuel surcharges are rather high on the long-haul awards.

Here are the terms and conditions of these promo awards:

  • Reservations must be made exclusively on or (except for bookings for children, infants and minors, who are not authorised to book an award on the website).

  • In the event that a technical problem occurs when reserving the promotional fare or if the reservation cannot be finalised, the Flying Blue member must log on to the site and repeat the procedure.

  • This award ticket may be used on connecting flights within Europe and on connecting flights from Europe to long-haul flights and vice-versa.

  • These promotional Promo Award@ may not be modified, cancelled or refunded.

  • Promo Award@ are available for one-way tickets and round trips.

  • Discounts (SkyTeam scale applicable) apply to the award ticket price only (SkyTeam scale is valid). Applicable taxes and fees are paid by the Flying Blue member.

  • Flex Award are not included in the Promo Award@ offer.

  • Business Elite and Economy Elite bookings are available exclusively to Flying Blue Elite members (Platinum, Gold and Silver). These Elite travel classes provide extra award seats on routes to the United States, the Carribean and Indian Ocean, Africa and Asia.

Priority Club Stay More Earn More-Bonuses Out Until April 30, 2013


Priority Club has just released a number of Stay More Earn More-bonuses for the first four months of the 2013. Note that these are valid from January 7 to April 30, 2013.


As always, there are different promotions available and Priority Club has introduced a new twist this time as well.

Some of the promotions have a set number of points earned + number of points earned more for few more nights.

Then there are bonuses that give you a set number of bonus points for the first 10 to 15 nights and then set number of points for every five nights going forward forward. The number of points earned during this promotion is not capped for the latter type.

Remember that you can only register for one of the promotions below and you cannot change the selection after registration.

You need to register before your first stay has posted to your account during the promotional period. I would wait as late as possible to figure out the number of stays that you will stay with the InterContinental Hotels Group until April 30th, 2013.

There are likely going to be one or two global promotions during this time frame as well that will be combinable with these Stay-bonuses.

You can register for this promotion here. You need to use your Priority Club account number or email address and the four digit promotional code.


5521 = Stay 2 Nights Get 2500 Bonus Points & Stay 2 More Nights and Get 2500 More Points

5528 = Stay 2 Nights Get 2500 Bonus Points (not sure about possible bonuses)

3411 = Stay 4 Nights Get 5000 Bonus Points & Stay 4 More Nights and Get 5000 More Points

3414 = Stay 5 Nights Get 10000 Bonus Points & Exclusive Elite Offer for 5K Bonus Points for Every Additional 5 Nights

3415 = Stay 10 Nights Get 15000 Bonus Points & Exclusive Elite Offer for 5K Bonus Points for Every Additional 5 Nights

3416 = Stay 15 Nights Get 20000 Bonus Points & Exclusive Elite Offer for 5K Bonus Points for Every Additional 5 Nights

Not sure about the following bonuses that are valid this round as well

3412 = Stay 3 Nights Get 2000 Miles

3413 = Stay 5 Nights Get 2000 Miles

5527 = Stay 3 Nights Get $25 Gift Card

If someone has received the offer 5528 or 3414, I would appreciate a copy of the email ( Quite likely they both have additional points for nights beyond the minimum.


There is really no reason to register right now. You can wait until you have your first stay and then decide which promotion would fit you best during this time frame. Just remember that you absolutely cannot change the selection once you have registered.

Let’s hope that this is a first sign of never ending Priority Club promotion for 2013!

Good Value United Award: Helsinki to Budapest on Lufthansa Y


I haven’t had too many pieces about good value awards this year and I always say that people should only redeem for international business or first class seats. Oh well. Sometimes it does make sense to redeem for economy flights as well.

United Award HEL-BUD LH Y 12500 Miles + $40.90
United Award HEL-BUD LH Y 12500 Miles + $40.90

Flights within Europe can be expensive at times if:

1. You are looking for one way

2. City pair not served by any low cost carrier

3. You are booking in short notice

All these happened to apply for me last week. I was looking for a one way flight from Helsinki (preferably from Kokkola) to Budapest to connect to an Egypt Air flight on 26th of December. The airline activity is heavily curtailed on 24th and 25th of December and there was no flight before early 26th out of Kokkola but too late to make my connection in Budapest.

There was, however, an option via Helsinki leaving on late on 25th and arriving to Budapest in the morning of 26th after an overnight in Frankfurt. One way United awards in economy cost 12500 within Europe in economy and the taxes/fees came to reasonable $40.90 for this itinerary.

I probably need to play around this with more, as it is somewhat waste just to redeem for one way when United has very flexible rules including double open jaw + stopover in return awards. Essentially, you can almost have three one ways within a return if you can do it correctly.


I highly value my United miles for the flexibility that they offer. For now, I don’t have to pay any expedite or reissuance fees due to Premier 1K status. This will change next year, however. We’ll see if I still like the program as much as I do today.

Marriott Rewards Making Elite Rollover Nights Permanent

1 Comment

Marriott has been slowly dripping off information about the changes coming to the Marriott Rewards program in 2013.

Marriott Rollover
Marriott Rollover

Marriott has since 2010 had a promotion for rollover elite nights. The nights i.e. over 75 for Platinum members would automatically rollover for the next year and count for qualification then.  Now, Marriott is making this permanent fixture of the Rewards Program and more information about this can be found in 2013 at (please note that this page is not active yet).

By Elite Level, how many nights are needed to qualify for Elite Rollover Nights?

  • Silver Elite – Nights in excess of 10

  • Gold Elite – Nights in excess of 50

  • Platinum Elite – Nights in excess of 75

  • Platinum Premier Elite – Nights in excess of 75

This is very useful for those that have a very high number of nights in one year and only a few the following year. You can easily qualify at the same level for number of years without having too many stays.

Also, if you are after the lifetime status with Marriott, playing around with these rollover nights can be beneficial. The nights that rollover count for lifetime nights in the year that they were earned AND on the following year as rollover. So, you can have some nights count TWICE. Rollover nights only rollover for one year. You cannot rollover them year after year.


Marriott has been using some sort of internal rollover nights already for a while. If you have qualified for Platinum status for several years, they don’t typically downgrade you for being short on nights on one year.

It is welcomed that they are making this change permanent. I am around 240 nights short on lifetime Platinum with Marriott. I will probably have quite a few stays (& meetings) in 2013 to have large number of nights rollover to 2014.

Shenzhen Airlines – Latest Member of the Star Alliance


Shenzhen Airlines officially joined Star Alliance on November 29, 2012, at a ceremony that took place at its main base in Shenzhen Airport (SZX). The airlines parent, Air China, was sponsoring the airline’s joining to the alliance.

Shenzhen Airlines
Shenzhen Airlines

Shenzhen Airlines operates a narrow body fleet of more than 100 airplanes and serves domestic and regional airports. According to the press releases, they are planning to order some wide body airplanes and that would imply long-haul flights sometime in the future. The airline was founded in 1992 and started operations in 1993.


You can already earn and burn on Shenzhen airlines. The earnings rate for United (check your Star Alliance airline’s page for your earning info these are not uniform) frequent fliers are rather low on discounted economy and you don’t earn Premier bonuses on Shenzhen as you do with some other Star Alliance airlines.


The award inventory is not available on yet. It is, however, available already on Air Canada’s Aeroplan. So, it should be soon on United and other Star Alliance carriers websites that allow online award bookings too.


It is really difficult to tell any differences between Chinese airlines. I have flown China Eastern and China Southern (both are SkyTeam members), and Air China (Star Alliance member and the parent of Shenzhen). I have yet to fly Shenzhen but for sure will at some point.

Hyatt December Edition of the 48 Hour Sale – C48DEC


Hyatt is having their monthly 48 hour sale where you can save up to 20% off of best available rates (BAR). Sometimes you can save quite a bit of money and sometimes you cannot. These rates are valid at select US, Canada, and Caribbean hotels for stays between January 1 and April 1, 2013. The promotional dates for individual properties may vary. You need to book this offer by 11:59PM CDT on December 19, 2012.


Sometimes it is actually better to book an AAA rate that might include some extras like a complimentary breakfast. AAA rates are also normally not prepaid and cancellable.


I would only book this rate if it is significantly cheaper than refundable rates as plans often change. This sale is a monthly one from Hyatt and these “sale” rates are often not that great. Have a look at your upcoming Hyatt reservations to see if there are opportunities to save.

Hyatt doesn’t seem to have a list of participating properties available, as they have in the past. You need to check city by city and have the C48DEC on the promotional code field when executing the search.

Here are the terms and conditions of this offer:

Offer valid for bookings only between 12:01 a.m. on 12/18/2012 and 11:59 p.m. on 12/19/2012 Central Standard Time, for travel between 01/01/2013 and 04/01/2013 at participating Hyatt Hotels & Resorts, Park Hyatt and Andaz properties in the U.S., Canada, and the Caribbean. Reservations are subject to availability and must be made in advance. Full non-refundable prepayment required at time of booking.  Offer is for a limited time only.  Simply request offer code C48DEC when you book your reservation and pay the 48Hour Sale rate.  Discount is off the Hyatt Daily Rate for the room type requested at time of booking. Rate is per room, per night, excluding service charges, taxes and other incidental expenses. Rate is based on double occupancy. Additional guests may be subject to additional hotel charges. Additional charges apply to room-type upgrades. A limited number of rooms are allocated to this promotion.  Changing a reservation made under this offer may result in a change in the rate.  Changing to a different property is considered a cancel and re-book, and is non-refundable.  Canceled reservations and no shows will results in a charge to your credit card for your entire stay.

Promotional blackout periods may apply due to seasonal periods or special events, and normal arrival/departure restrictions apply, including, but not limited to, minimum length of stay and day of week restrictions. Offer may not be combined with other offers or discounts.  Hyatt reserves the right to alter or withdraw this program at any time without notice.

Air Canada Rouge Coming in July 2013

Air Canada is introducing fourth brand Rouge next year to complement the current Air Canada, Jazz, and Rapidair brands. This new carrier is flying so called sun routes and secondary destinations not served by the airline starting in July 2013.



The carrier has its own operational license and the flight attendants for the airline are working under different contract that those for Air Canada. According to the press release, the Rouge flights are flown by Air Canada cockpit crew, however.


Rouge also announced yesterday the first destinations that the airline will start flying in 2013 in leisure market configured airplanes without business or first class.


As the airline will start with only two Boeing 767 and two Airbus A319 airplanes, the frequency to destinations except Athens is about once or twice a week.


The number of miles that you can earn on Air Canada’s Aeroplan program is very limited.


Not sure if you can earn status or award miles on other Star Alliance member airline frequent flier plans if flying on Rouge. At least the rendered picture of the Rouge aircraft does have a Star Alliance logo that would imply that Rouge is part of the alliance.

Other airlines haven’t had much of a success with these airline within an airline brands. United’s Ted is long gone as is Delta’s Song. Singapore Airline and Cathay Pacific have both been successful with their Silk Air and Dragon Air regional airline brands.


Let’s just hope that this works for Air Canada. Their plan seems to be to dump the old Air Canada airplanes to Rouge once they get the brand new 787 deliveries in.

Preparing for Marriott Lifetime Status Requirement Change

As I wrote yesterday, the requirements for lifetime Marriott Silver, Gold, and Platinum status are changing in 2013 and the program becomes official.


It is important that you know:

1. How many nights you have with Marriott Rewards


2. How many lifetime Marriott Rewards points you have earned

It is easy to check the number of nights you have with Marriott. You just need to log into your Marriott Rewards account and click View Rewards Activity. You then have access to a summary that shows the number of “Total Membership Nights” that are used for the lifetime requirement qualification.


Founding the number of Marriott points that you have earned during your account existence is more difficult, however. This information is not available online right now, but probably is sometime next year once the lifetime program has officially kicks in. You need to either call or email Marriott Rewards customer service using the Contact Us web form. I was surprised to get a response back in less than an hour yesterday, when I inquired about my lifetime point total.

So, here’s my case

I have few stays more than 500 nights with Marriott Rewards that qualifies me for lifetime Gold status under the night criteria. I do need to fulfill the number of points earned during the membership as well. According to Marriott Rewards, I had earned 1,421,793 since joining Marriott Rewards back in 2005. I would need to have 1.6 million points.

What I will do to get my lifetime points up

Marriott counts all the points that have deposited to account for the lifetime points earned calculations. Base points, elite bonuses, possible extra points that hotel is offering, MegaBonuses, Shopping online through Marriott Mall, buying points, points earned from Marriott branded credit cards etc.


The fastest way for me to get the tally up is to buy the maximum number of point allowed during the calendar year of 2012 and then again in early 2013. The price that Marriott charges for their points is rather reasonable $12.50 per 1000 points. You can only buy or be gifted 50K Marriott Rewards points during a calendar year.

Marriott is also awarding bonus Marriott Rewards points for gift card purchases. You could earn 10 points per dollar loaded for up to 20K bonus points until the end of 2012.

What you can do to get your lifetime nights up

The easiest and fastest way is to start arranging meetings at Marriott properties. You can schedule an hour long meeting and rent a space for it. This qualifies you for 10 night credit. I will write about this in the next few days.


The new constraint to qualify for lifetime status for many is the number of lifetime points earned vs nights.  Especially, if your average daily rates have been rather low OR you have been crediting your Marriott stays towards airline miles instead of points (crediting straight to airline miles make very little sense).

In my case, it makes sense to start buying the maximum number of Marriott Rewards points per calendar year that is allowed under the program. When I do it in 2012 and again early in 2013, I am very close to meeting the 1.6 million earned point requirement as well.

I have enough points sitting in my account that, when I add two purchases and points coming in, it would allow me to issue a Travel Package with 120K mile air component. I would wait until an airline offers significant bonus for hotel points transferred/converted before doing that, however.

Air Canada Aeroplan Introduces Oneway Awards in North America, Caribbean and Central America?

Aeroplan has a separate award chart for one ways at a higher cost than half of a return trip. Now, awards in North America, The Caribbean and Central America are pricing at half of a round trip price.


Aeroplan has not made any announcement about this change, so it could be permanent or a promotion. In either way, it is surprising that they haven’t made any announcements about this.

Here are few examples:


Toronto to San Jose (Costa Rica) priced at half of a RT price of 20K Aeroplan.


Montreal to Caracas priced at the One-way ClassicFlight rewards price of 34K Aeroplan (not half of RT).


Calgary to Santiago de Chile also priced at the One-way ClassicFlight rewards price of 40K Aeroplan (not half of RT).


Los Angeles to Newark on business class for 25K Aeroplan is half of a RT.


Anchorage to Bermuda prices at half of a RT price of 20K.


It would be nice to know if this is a promotion or has Aeroplan decided to offer some one-ways at half of the round trip price. The latter wouldn’t be surprising.

Personally, I really prefer flexibility and rarely, if ever, book traditional return round trips. One-ways gives you greater flexibility to combine paid air/car/train and visit multiple destinations more easily without having to pay a higher award price.

I hope that this award pricing is here to stay and would extend outside of North and Central America.

Hyatt Properties Moving Up and Down in Award Categories 2013

1 Comment

Hyatt has now released a list of properties moving up and down in award categories on Hyatt Insiders that is a private invitation only community run by Hyatt.  You can access the page on here.


You have until midnight February 6, 2013, to book the hotels that are moving up at the old rate and you can modify those reservations until March 15, 2013, without having to reprice them at a higher points cost. For properties that are moving down, you should see an automatic credit for the points deposited back to your account for the difference.

The changes compared to the devaluation of 2011 are minor. You have only 7 hotels moving up in categories and 10 moving down.


It is not a surprise that the Hyatt Regency Incheon is moving up. It was a very good value at 8000 points per night. Now, that the Hyatt Santa Barbara has been redone, the category is going up as well. The Hyatt 48 Lex and Grand Hyatt Tokyo moving up in categories? These necessarily doesn’t make too much sense.


We should soon learn about category adjustments from other hotel chains as well. These Hyatt changes are rather non-event.

Here are the frequently asked questions by Hyatt about this change:

1. What changed about the Hyatt Gold Passport Award Chart, and when did those changes become effective?
Effective February 7, 2013, Hyatt Gold Passport will adjust the award categories for 17 hotels.

Hotels Shifting Award Categories
There will be some hotels that move into a higher category and some hotels that will move to a lower category.

2. How many hotels are shifting to a higher category?
Seven hotels will move into a higher award category. Free night award redemptions at these hotels will require additional Hyatt Gold Passport points effective February 7, 2013:

Hotel Current Category New Category
HYATT house San Ramon 1 2
Hyatt Place Louisville-East 1 2
Hyatt Place Pittsburgh-North Shore 1 3
Hyatt Regency Incheon 2 3
Hyatt Santa Barbara 3 4
Hyatt 48 Lex 4 5
Grand Hyatt Tokyo 5 6

3. How many hotels are shifting to a lower category?
Ten hotels will move into a lower award category. Free night award redemptions at these hotels will require fewer Hyatt Gold Passport points effective February 7, 2013:

Hotel Current Category New Category
Hyatt Place Chantilly/Dulles Airport-South 2 1
Hyatt Place Tulsa/Southern Hills 2 1
Hyatt Place Sterling/Dulles Airport-North 2 1
Hyatt Regency Albuquerque 2 1
Hyatt Regency Greenville 2 1
HYATT house Chicago/Naperville/Warrenville 3 2
Hyatt Place Las Vegas 3 2
Hyatt Regency Oubaai Golf Resort and Spa 4 3
Park Hyatt Aviara Resort 5 4
Park Hyatt Toronto 5 4

4. What are the current point redemption values for each free night award category?

Category 1 = 5,000 Hyatt Gold Passport points
Category 2 = 8,000 Hyatt Gold Passport points
Category 3 = 12,000 Hyatt Gold Passport points
Category 4 = 15,000 Hyatt Gold Passport points
Category 5 = 18,000 Hyatt Gold Passport points
Category 6 = 22,000 Hyatt Gold Passport points

5. For free night award redemption reservations made before January 3, 2013, which award chart will be effective?
All free night award redemptions booked before February 7, 2013 will follow the current Award Chart. For example, if you book an award night prior to February 7, 2013 for a stay that occurs on February 7, 2013 or after, the current Award Chart will apply. Any free night award redemptions booked on February 7, 2013 or after will follow the new Award Chart.

6. How will award nights booked prior to February 7, 2013 be impacted if the hotel I am staying at now requires more or fewer points?

Redemptions for Hotels Moving to a Higher Category
Any award night booked at a property prior to February 7, 2013 that is shifting to a higher category on February 7, 2013 and requires more points will not be affected. Reservations will remain in place at the original point level. For example, an award night booked at a Category 1 hotel for 5,000 points before February 7, 2013 that is moving to a Category 2 hotel for 8,000 points on February 7, 2013, will remain at 5,000 points.

Redemptions for Hotels Moving to a Lower Category
A member who books an award night at a property prior to February 7, 2013 that is shifting to a lower category on February 7, 2013 and requires fewer points will receive an adjustment. Hyatt Gold Passport Customer Service will proactively deposit the point difference into a member’s account. For example, a member with an award night booked before February 7, 2013 for a Category 2 hotel for 8,000 points that is moving to a Category 1 hotel for 5,000 points on February 7, 2013, will receive 3,000 points returned to his/her account. Points will be deposited into a member’s account after February 7, 2013.

7. After February 7, 2013, how will Hyatt handle modifications to existing reservations?
Any award night reservations booked before February 7, 2013, for dates after February 7, 2013, can be modified through March 15, 2013 – following the terms of the current Award Chart. Any modifications made to these reservations after March 15, 2013 will follow the terms of the new Award Chart, effective February 7, 2013.

Le Club Accorhotels Platinum Status for Signing Up (Yet Another New Link)


I have had the Platinum status by request available for the past few months and it still is. Now, someone has (again) posted a link on a public website for instant Platinum status. These public links tend to die within a day or two.

You can sign up for the instant Le Club Accorhotels Platinum status using this link. Please note that you need to sign up using an email address that has not been previously associated with Le Club Accorhotels or A Club.

I signed up for the Platinum status last year and have had few Accor stays. The Mercure hotel in Nadi was not great, but the Novotel hotel in Lami Bay was actually nice. During my stay at the Hotel Muse, MGallery collection hotel, in Bangkok I even received a Platinum gift that was a shirt. The Pullman hotel in Bali is good one too.


Once this public link is dead, you can always do the request for the non-public link that I have outlined here.

Marriott Spring 2013 MegaBonus is Coming


We are slowly starting to have a clearer picture of the first quarter 2013 hotel promotions. The registration for the spring 2013 Marriott MegaBonus ( the link will work on 20th) will open on December 20 and ends on March 15, 2013. The promotion itself is valid from February 1 to April 30, 2013.

I don’t have the MegaBonus options available at this time. I should have the entire list by 22nd and I will post it here.

The bonus options are likely to be very similar to those of the last couple of promotions; you can likely earn free night certificates for every couple of stays or bonus points depending of the number of nights of the targeted offer.


I hope that the Marriott would have something new in the coffers this time. They have had the very similar MegaBonus offers for years now.

The only recent addition is the free night certificates that are usually capped at category 4. You earn them after every two stays and are capped at two or three certificates.
