News and Notes from Around the Interweb:
- And your reward for 10 bus trips is… another bus trip: Southwest extends double points for another month
- Those friendly Canadians offer up a small bonus: Aeroplan is offering 1000 bonus miles for activity with many of their partners through August 31
- It’s no Grand Slam, but.. US Airways is offering a 50% bonus on hotel stays and car rentals credited to the Dividend Miles program (points transfers into Dividend Miles don’t count). Registration required.
- I Still Like Southwest’s Original Secretary’s Program Better: United’s new small business program lets you accrue miles in a separate account for the business for a variety of activities and should even offer the ability to transfer those miles to a personal account. Most airlines offer small business programs, usually those earn ‘credits’ rather than miles that can be redeemed for flights, upgrades, drinks, etc. United’s post-merger rollout has been a long time in coming.
