Up to 2,000 Southwest Points for Flowers + SWA Contest


Who doesn't love getting flowers! Before 12/31/12 you can get Rapid Reward points for every Teleflora order. The bonus points earned are tiered below:

$29.99 to $49.99=1,250 points =.02/mi
$50 to $74.99=1,500 points =.03/mi
$75 to $99.99=1,750 points=.04/mi
over $100=2,000 points =.05/mi
Promo Code: WNRREUB 

Assuming you pay the lowest amount for each tier you will be getting the cost per mile as noted above. I agree not the greatest values but if you are buying flowers for that special someone for the holidays might as well earn some miles!

Plus every order gets you an entry to win 1,000,000 Rapid Reward points. Official rules here.

For more miles and points options for buying flowers check out my Database!

Southwest Discontinues partnership with TXU Energy


Starting Jan 1, 2013, you will no longer be able to sign up to earn Rapid Reward points with TXU Energy. If
you currently have the LUV2FLY plan you will still receive your bonus points as outline in the plan for each milestone achieved.

If you recently signed up with TXU Energy for the LUV2FLY plan but have not received your redemption instructions, you should call 866-377-8983 to provide your Rapid Reward # to ensure you get your bonus points.

I hope this doesn't mean the start of the end to utility partners with airlines.

Citi Price Rewind



 So last month I talked about how you can register your qualified purchase made through your Citi credit card at citipricerewind.com If there is a lower price by at least $25 found within 30 days, you will receive a refund for the difference up to $250 per item. Well I had registered my computer that I had bought a month ago and it found a $50 price drop so getting a refund!You have 90 days from the date of purchase to request a refund and you must upload a scan or picture of your original receipt so make sure to keep those!

I looked at the description of non covered items and jewelry (excluding watches) and airline or transportation tickets are not eligible for refund to name a few. Also business citicards are not eligible for this program. So if you are starting to make your holiday purchases and are using your citicard to earn AA miles then don't forget to register for a possible refund!

Winos can earn points too! (Radisson)

If you regularly buy wines then this may be a good promotion for you. This offer in my opinion would not warrant a purchase just for the points.

By joining American Cellars Wine Club and receiving your 2nd shipment, you can earn up to 12,500 Club Carlson points. You will get 5,000 points after your first shipment which includes 6 bottles of wine and will cost $41.95. With the second shipment of 6 wines, you will receive 7,500 points and each bottle will costs between $12 and $15 plus shipping. You will also receive 10 points per dollar spent. If you don't cancel then you will continue to receive 6 bottles per month.

So if you like drinking wines or like to give them as gifts for the holidays then this may be a promotion for you. I have not yet tried this promotion so don't know the success of points posted. If you have tried this out then definitely let me know your experience.
