Over the past week or so, several offers for free miles and elite status have popped up so I would thought it would be helpful to have a single post consolidating all the offers. Here are the current offers I am aware of (please share any others I might have missed).
1. 700 Free American Airlines AAdvantage Miles – AA is celebrating the 35th anniversary of the AAdvantage frequent flyer program so they are offering everyone 350 miles for entering a sweepstakes for a chance to win 350,000 AA miles. Then you can earn another 350 miles for sharing a milestone trip of yours via social media or email.
2. 1,000 Free TAP Portugal Victoria Miles – Thanks to Frequent Flyer Bonuses for finding this as you can earn 1,000 free miles for joining TAP Portugal’s frequent flyer program. To be honest, I don’t know much about this program but it wasn’t much work to signup for an account just in case.
Free Elite Status Offers
1. Free Instant Hilton Gold Status – If you are reading this blog or any other miles/points blog, you probably have Hilton Gold status by now but if you don’t you can register here and Hilton will give you instant Gold status until 8/31. Hilton Gold status is quite valuable for the free breakfast, free premium wifi and chance for upgrades at checkin. Technically this offer is for Accenture employees but Hilton doesn’t appear to verifying this in anyway. If I didn’t already have Hilton Diamond status, I would have no qualms about taking advantage of this offer.
2. Free Leading Hotels of the World Elite Status – This is a very small chain of hotels (about 400 worldwide) but includes some recognizable hotels like the Biltmore and they are offering free “Leaders Club” status for filing out a form and returning it to them. Follow the instructions and download the form here but the status is actually pretty decent if you find yourself at one of these hotels, including complimentary breakfast and wifi.
3. Free Small Luxury Hotels of the World Elite Status – Another small hotel chain (about 520 hotels worldwide) that is giving away elite status, in this case “Loved” status which gets you free breakfast and a complimenaty upgrade on your first stay. This literally took 30 seconds to fill out via this link.
As always, when it comes to free miles/points & free elite status that requires < 2-3 minutes of work, I highly recommend taking of these offers. You never know when those extra few miles or elite status might come in handy.
