Earn 20 MyCokeRewards

My Coke Rewards is currently running a promo where you can earn up to 20 points. Watching the video will get you 10 points and tweeting will get you another 10 points. Why stock up on my coke rewards? Sometimes you can cash in these points for hotel points. I've seen HHonors and Priority Club points in the past. Get your points while you can!

Savy Valentine's Date

Valentine's day is in a few weeks away but now is a good time to start planning to save money and still be a hero! If your significant other loves receiving flowers or chocolates, FTD,com is currently offering 30 United miles/dollar spent or 30 AA miles/dollar. If you just want to save money, you can use a Groupon deal that is currently running for $20 for $40 worth of merchandise at FTD.com

I love going out to eat for Valentine's and Groupon also has many restaurant that are featured. In Houston I found a deal for $35 for 2 for an all you can eat dinner at a Brazilian Steakhouse. It does say not valid on holidays but you can go the day after :) Check your city to see if there are any promotions like this running because these are great deals!

Every now and then they also have Groupons for movies tickets. I have gotten some at my local movie theater which I am also planning to use during Valenties.

Enjoy lovers day and also be happy that you got such great deals!

If you bought US Airways mi in 2012, you can buy at 100% Bonus

 I got an email from US Airways stating that since I bought/gifted miles in 2012, that I can buy miles at a 100% bonus until Jan 31.  If you didn't get the email but bought or gifted miles in 2012, click on the link, enter your information, and you will see if you qualify for this promotion when you see this.
If you need to top off your account, then this would be the time to do it! And remember if you have the US airways card, you can get an award flight for as little as 20k miles.Here is a sample of what the miles would cost including your bonus miles:
1,000 +1,000 miles for $35
5,000 +5,000 miles for $175
10,000 + 10,000 miles for $350

Priority club tried to do this as well with a 40% bonus points but its not a good deal since you can book a room using cash & points and cancel the room and get back the points at a much better value. I wonder if other airlines or hotels will follow this promotion?!

Earn bonus 2,500 HHonor Points for Weekend Stay

 I've already started booking my 2013 plans because of all the hotel changes and promotions that are going on. Hilton is currently running a promotion where if you book a weekend stay by January 31, 2013 for any weekend through 2013, you can 15%- 40% depending on the hotel. Also... on Jan 16, 2013 at 11am, you can register on Facebook to receive an extra 2,500 HHonors points for every weekend you book up to 4 weekends. You have 24 hrs to register so don't forget! I'll send a reminder tweet to everyone :) The only downside is that these are prepaid not refundable rates so your plans are set in stone. So if you are paying for your hotel and don't mind prepaying, then this promotion will work for you!

For other hotel promotions, check out Loyalty Traveler for his compiled list.

If Your NY Resolution is to Join a Gym, Get 2k United Bonus Miles

If you were thinking of joining a gym membership, you can get 2k United bonus miles for a new membership. Some participating gyms include: 24hr Fitness, Bally Total Fitness, Curves, Anytime Fitness, NYSC sports club and many more. To check out which gyms qualify, find a gym here. I tried to go through the steps for a 24hr fitness membership in Houston and it looks like you have to prepay for a 1 year membership and there is a processing fee. This seems pretty comparable to a gym membership I used to have with them but you have to make sure you go since you can't get refunds and you will break your resolution :)

This is not worth just joining the gym for the miles but if you were going to join anyways, make sure you get your bonus miles! Here is to getting healthy!
