September 30th, 2013
Bumping this up again from yesterday as I’ve already gotten over 50 emails from people thanking me for reminding them to call United to save their Continental miles! No need to be lazy-you can even have United call you.
Today is the last day of September.
-Tomorrow you’ll once again be able to send another $1,000 for free via Amazon Payments and start to load another $5,000 onto your Bluebird card, but if you haven’t done so for September yet now’s your last chance. They’re great ways to help meet your spend thresholds.
-Today is the last day for Q3 Freedom spending.
Special thanks to 7-11 for those 9 OneVanilla cards and for being right next door to a WalMart.
-Don’t forget to call United to check if you have any old Continental accounts that weren’t merged or that you may have forgotten about. People have found miles that they earned in the 80s and 90s and have been able to save them. But those old Continental miles will expire tomorrow if you don’t do anything. Burning 300 miles for a magazine subscription or transferring 1,000 points from Chase to United will instantly extend the life of all your miles for another 18 months.
-The BA 50K card offer with the annual fee waived for the first year was being advertised by BA as ending today. The jury is still out on this one.
