schaumburg

Good news for UBER fans in the Schaumburg area as you have a chance for some free rides this coming weekend the 18-20th. Looks like existing UBER users can register as well with code:  SCHAUMBURG

I was able to have it take on mine but I doubt I will be able to use it. However, if you don’t have UBER you and I can  both get $30 off 1st ride if you like.

Next, both BeFrugal and TopCashBack are currently offering 3% on AMEX gift cards. On an interesting note, eBates is up to 2%. Not saying you should buy from them but they have been stuck at 1% forever so do keep them in mind if the others drop down below 2%.

gilt updates for 1st class sale

Also the much blogged about GILT Delta 1st class fare deal from select cities, that was first going to award ZERO points, now may just pay out points as you can see from the updated T&C on the website. I am still not a big fan of this deal and can still see it going sideways on points so be careful if points matter. If just a low cost 1st class flight matters then you have a day or so to get in on the offer.

Lastly we are likely only days away from the new IHG PointBreaks list for the next few months. The last list was less than inspiring so maybe the new one will be a bit better! – René
