US Airways 2,000-Mile Dining Bonus, Expedia $25 off $100, and More
Good evening! I hope everyone is enjoying the holiday weekend.
Don’t forget tomorrow, in honor of Martin Luther King Day, the National Park Service is offering free entrance to all US national parks.
For your travel-deal fix, here are a bunch of other offers.
2,000 US Airways miles for dining
You can earn 2,000 US Airways miles as a signup bonus with the US Airways dining program.
To earn the bonus:
- Join by February 1, 2015,
- Spend $30 or more at a participating restaurant within 30 days of joining, and
- Write a review (which is quick and painless to do).
The $30 must be spent in one transaction, but if you wouldn’t normally spend that much at one meal then just buy a gift card to use over time.
If you’re unfamiliar with travel-provider-affiliated dining programs, I explain here.
Even if you do not collect US Airways miles, this promotion is still valuable if you collect American Airlines miles.
As you may know, the two airlines merged in 2013. At this time their respective frequent flyer programs still operate separately. However, when they merge later this year, mileage balances will be combined.
So this promotion is also an indirect way to earn 2,000 American miles.
$25 off $100+ at Expedia
Expedia is offering coupons for $25 off a hotel booking of $100 or more made through the mobile app.
To obtain a coupon, enter your mobile number here. They will text you back a unique discount code.
The nice thing about this deal is that you can request up to three coupons per account (but must wait 24 hours between requests).
Coupons must be redeemed by March 31, 2015 for travel through the same date.
Travelocity also has a couple of mobile offers, but note they expire at 11:59 PM tonight (January 18):
For $30 off $100+ use code MOBILE30JAN. For $40 off $150+ use code MOBILE40JAN.
The terms limit these to one’s first hotel booking via app, so if you’ve previously used another Travelocity app coupon on the same account this one may not “take.”
Many national brands are excluded, but these are still nice discounts if you find a boutique hotel that works with your travel plans.
Finally, a few random non-travel deals while I’m at it:
- Chipotle: Free burrito when you order sofritas on Jan. 26, 2015.
- LivingSocial: 15% off (maximum discount $20) with promo code LSJAN15 (expires tomorrow, January 19).
- Ann Taylor: extra 70% off sale items (expires January 20 at 3:00AM ET).
- Oakley Vault: extra 25% off clearance “for a limited time.”
Enjoy the remaining weekend.
