Here’s a summary of this week’s miles and points offers, deals, and specials that I haven’t posted on the blog:

Airlines

  • Free roundtrip anywhere Alaska Airlines flies. California residents can earn a free roundtrip to any Alaska Airline destination simply by flying 2 roundtrips between San Diego and Boise, Boston, Fresno, Honolulu, Kahului (Maui), Lihue (Kauai), Los Cabos, Monterey, Orlando, Portland, Puerto Vallarta, Santa Rosa, and Seattle. Registration is required. Qualifying roundtrips must be completed by November 20, 2013.  Free roundtrip ticket is valid from January 7 – November 15, 2014.
  • Up to 30% bonus on shared American Airlines. You’ll receive a 30% bonus when you share 41,000 – 50,000 miles, 25% bonus when you share 26,000 – 40,000 miles, and 20% bonus for sharing 5,000 – 25,000 miles.  There is a fee to share miles $35 transaction fee plus $20 per 1,000 miles shared up to 5,000 miles.  If you want to share 6,000 miles or more, it’s an additional $10 per 1,000 miles shared.  Since you can book a ticket for anyone using your miles, I wouldn’t recommend sharing miles unless you only need a few thousand.
  • 25% Bonus on hotel points transferred to British Airways Avios points. From now through October 15, 2013, you’ll receive a 25% bonus when you transfer hotel points from Club Carlson, Hilton HHonors, Hyatt Gold Passport, IHG Rewards Club, Marriott Rewards, Shangri-La Golden Circle, and Starwood Preferred Guest.
