So much the last few days, mostly odds and ends. First, two quick Marriott Offers:

Marriott Homes and Villas – Earn 25X on Base Spend (5X Normal)

Marriott Bonvoy members who book a 5+ night stay in a private home rental between June 3-26, 2024, and stay between June 3,2024 – March 31, 2025, will earn 5X points per stay. Details can be found here.

I confirmed that with the usual offer being 5X points per dollar, that we are talking 25X and they did confirm that is the case, so if you were lining up a vacation rental, that’s a pretty nice incentive. Any elite member points bonuses are also earned on top.

American Express® Rewards Checking Debit Card Offer

If you have the American Express® Rewards Checking Debit Card, earn 4X Membership Rewards® points for every $2 spent on eligible debit card purchases up to $1,500 in spend by July 31. That’s 4X the normal earn rate.

Book American Airlines Awards Online at Cathay Pacific

It’s not new to be able to book AA using CX (Cathay Pacific) Asia Miles (transferable from Amex, Citi, Capital One, and Bilt) is new – and awesome. Here’s a First Class booking from JFK to LAX in First (while AA still offers it).

Just the normal $5.60 in fees.
