100 Free SPG Points Via Facebook

I am guessing that in conjunction with Facebook going public Friday morning, Starwood has decided to give everyone 100 SPG points on Facebook so we don’t feel bad that we aren’t millionaires.

I am personally waiting for the MySpace IPO, but I certainly will take 100 free SPG points.

While technically you are suppose to “like” SPG first before you can get your points, the direct link to get the points is below:

Link To SPG 100 Free Points

Link To SPG Facebook Page (in case top link isn’t working)

This promotion literally takes 2 seconds.

Within 1 minute, I entered in all the 8 accounts of my family and Emily’s family.

800 SPG points for 1 minute of work is a steal!

Anyways lets hope that this is the start of a very successful free SPG points season.

Let’s just say that last summer, in addition to earning some 40,000 free SPG points via these types of Facebook promotions, thanks to their free concert ticket giveaway my Macbook Air was paid in full. Thanks SPG!

2 Free Upgrades on Air Canada + 15% Off Coupon

I just saw this as I was typing this post out, so I haven’t had a change to sign up yet but The Points Guy says that if you register for Air Canada’s business program, which looks like is free, you can get the following:

  • 2 upgrade certificates
  • 15% off coupon for Air Canada flights
  • 1 free Air Canada Maple Leaf Lounge Access
  • 5 pre-paid vouchers for food on board Air Canada flights

Even if you don’t ever plan on flying Air Canada, I would sign up because a lot of flights that go to Europe on Star Alliance seem to be code-shared with Air Canada and route through Canada, so you never know when these upgrade certificates might come in handy!

If you are planning on taking advantage of this awesome promotion, DON’T WAIT until later in the evening! Do it now! These types of deals have a tendency of being pulled early after they get posted on travel blogs.

Update: I’ve signed up and got my confirmation email!

1,000 Free Virgin Elevate Points

New Girl In The Air points out that if you register for Virgin America’s Facebook “yearbook”, you get 1,000 free Virgin Elevate points! I don’t understand the promotion, but I will take 1,000 free points any day.

Link To Promotion

I have never flown Virgin, but have heard great thing and would love to fly them in the future (on miles of course)!

Not to mention their marketing is HILARIOUS! Read the headline of the newspaper below ; )

These are photos from the inaugural Chicago to San Francisco flight last year!

When was the last time you saw United or American show such enthusiasm for a new route or really any route for that matter?

 

439 Free United or American Airlines Miles

Now as I always say, if the miles are free, you are dumb not to take them.

Case and point is that yes I may never fly on Virgin or collect enough miles on Virgin to get a free flight, HOWEVER as Just Another Points Traveler points out, you can use Points.com to convert these 1,000 free Virgin Elevate points into 439 free United or American Airline miles!

These types of free mile promotions -> Points.com conversions are great for keeping your United or American account active with activity so your miles don’t expire!

I did not previously have a Virgin Elevate account, so I quickly made one and entered this promotion, which all together took less than 2 minutes.

Then just so I won’t forget my username or password, I added my new Virgin account to AwardWallet!

30% Stackable Virgin America Coupon

As Dan’s Deals points out, you can actually stack the AMEX Virgin America 10% off statement credit promotion with a Virgin 20% off coupon for a total of 30% off your flight.

I’ll let him explain it, but it seems like a good deal especially since you can earn some Elevate points!
