1. United’s MileagePlusX mobile app has a targeted offer for 5,000 bonus miles when signing up for Clear. There are two possibilities here:
- Signing up for the Clear trial via the United portal is likely to earn 5,000 bonus miles even if you cancel the trial
- You can combine this with the American Express Platinum Clear credit and get a bonus 5,000 miles for no fee
(Thanks to TheSultan1 on reddit for pointing out the bonus offer)
2. There are new targeted United MilePlay offers, check for yours at this link. Sometimes these are really lucrative and other times they’re not worth your time, but do take a look in case it’s the former on this round. For me, it was definitely, without a doubt the latter. My offer:

3. There’s a new no-lifetime language American Express Business Gold card offer for 90,000 Membership Rewards after spending $10,000 in three months. You can get a bonus 10,000 Membership Rewards by adding an employee card and spending $1,000 or more on that card, also within the first three months.
These cards are great for gas station manufactured spend primarily, but can also be great for advertising spend if you can manufacture that (or have legit advertising spend).
4. There’s a Hyatt Globalist requalification offer for current Globalists that aren’t likely to hit 60 nights this year but still want to maintain status until February 2023. The catch? You still have to stay 20 nights between now and February 28, 2022 to meet the requalification offer so it’s not exactly a slam dunk.
5. Staples has $200 Mastercard gift cards fee free running Sunday through the following Saturday, limit five per transaction. I almost didn’t write about this one because we’ve reached the point where these deals are happening more often than not and it’s not really news any more. (Thanks to DoC)
6. Tomorrow is the last day to transfer your Citi ThankYou points to AA. I truly believe this deal will come back because:
- They’ve spent the time to set up the IT infrastructure and now it’s likely easy to enable/disable at will
- Barclays has put its AA Business credit card relationship into deep-freeze, (IMO because of a pending Citi-AA announcement) EDIT: Gary at VFTW notes that the deep-freeze is due to the need to update application language
- AA has been changing its frequent flyer program over the last month, and they’ve said that new partner earning opportunities are coming
- Citi is AA’s biggest miles buyer (Citi go burrrr if you’re AA)
Of course, time will tell. Happy weekend!
