I mentioned earlier this month that Priceline.com purchases could earn eBay Anything Points.
The offer is now available for booking via eBay’s travel page. The offer is 1500 points for airline tickets or hotel stays (fewer for rental cars and more for vacations).
With the current Points.com bonus for American Airlines transfers, those 1500 points convert to 1570 AAdvantage miles. Not bad for tickets and stays that otherwise wouldn’t earn miles at all! And in most cases a better reward than ebates which rebates only 2%.
Update: Two notes.
First, as of about a week ago ebates no longer rebates 2% on Priceline hotel bookings. One more reason this deal is so great, relative to other options.
Second, it’s only this lucrative until June 30th. After that the points.com transfer bonus goes away. It’ll still be worth doing, but the math won’t be as favorable.
