1. United has a new iteration of the MileagePlay quarterly promotion, registration required and offers vary.

    My promotion was book and fly at least three $175 trips in the next 60 days for 8,700 MileagePlus miles. That’s a solid 2 out of 10 in my scoring book which is on par for United.
  2. Do this now: Register for Radisson Rewards Q2 promo for 5,000 bonus points per stay through June 30.
  3. Spirit Airlines has a status match promotion that costs $99 for the privilege of matching. The status is good for 12 months, and will get you a free carry-on and free checked bag, a free change once per itinerary, better seating, and a snack and drink on each flight.

    At least you won’t be flying Southwest? (Ok, I’m mostly kidding, but I’d take a Spirit Big Front Seat over a Southwest flight, which isn’t complimentary in the match.)
  4. There’s a $600 personal checking sign-up bonus with US Bank for accounts opened by April 11 using promo code 2023MAR. To qualify, you need $10,000 in direct deposits or “direct deposits” spread out over 90 days.

    Everyone’s going to tell you that you also need to be in US Bank’s footprint to qualify, but that’s a half truth at best. If you’re not in their footprint, open a brokerage account, wait a couple of days, then apply for the checking account to bypass the footprint requirement. (Thanks to FM)
  5. The Citi AA Platinum Select credit card has a really good sign-up bonus through :

    – 75,000 AA miles after $3,500 in purchases in four months
    – No annual fee for the first year, $99 after

    If you were banned by Toby you can probably still get back in and get this bonus, just use a new address, a slight name variation, and a new phone number. Also, get a PreCheck number and use that if you had Global Entry when shutdown, or vice-versa.
  6. AA’s eshopping portal has a bonus 500 miles with $200 or more in cumulative spend through April 10. I just checked and there’s breaking news: giftcards.com is still absent from the portal.

United’s demonstrating it’s consistent 2 out of 10: The lowrider hydraulic Boeing.
