Special Thanks to “This Week In Budget Travel” for this one.
EVreward.com is a great one stop portal to track down all points earning promotions on offer from retailers and credit card issuers. Simply type in the name of a retailer and it will immediately let you know what promotions are in place.
I did a simple search for “Target” and found out that Visa is offering $5.00 of purchases of $50.00 and $7.00 off purchases of $70.00 at Target.com
The search also resulted in a list of all Airline and Hotel Loyalty Programs that have affiliations with Target for bonus point earning opportunities (the website’s graphics are far more impressive):
Air Tran Rewards 0.25 A+ credits per $100
American Airlines 3.0 miles per $1.00
Choice Privileges 4.0 points per $1.00
Delta SkyMiles 3.0 skymiles per $1.00
Frontier Airlines 2.0 miles per $1.00
Hawaiian Airlines 3.0 miles per $1.00
Hilton HHonors 2.0 points per $1.00
Marriott Rewards 3.0 points per $1.00
Priority Club 3.0 points per $1.00
Southwest 2.0 points per $1.00
US Airways 2.0 miles per $1.00
United Airlines 2.0 miles per $1.00
In this example, If I am a Mileage Plus member and Delta SkyMile member as well, I’ll earn 50% more miles using Delta’s Skymile affiliation with Target.
The site also shows credit card programs that are eligible for bonus points if used on Target.com. EvRewards.com goes deeper into the bonus earnings for the cards, but due to cut and paste limitations, I’ll just list the cards programs:
If you go to Evrewards.com, you can see all the details for the card programs.
THE BIG ADVANTAGE HERE is that it allows you to see what promotions are available with a retailer, so that you can optimize your point or mile earning potential. Normally you would have to go to each credit card, or Frequent Flyer account site to see what their promotions are. With EvReward.com, its consolidated for you on one screen. Before you spend any money this Holiday Season, check EvReward.com first to see what points and bonuses are available to you.
This is a keeper!!
