5,000 points Marriott Best Rate Guarantee, $500 Chase Checking Bonus, 71,000 IHG Rewards points, 25,000 Hyatt points, new Cathay Pacific route to Cape Town

Posted on February 22, 2018 by in Hyatt

– Marriott’s Best Rate Guarantee (also called LNF) now offers 5,000 points or 25% off the better rate you find (if approved)

– Chase now allows you to open up a checking/ savings account online for the maximum $500 in bonus (new customers only) (HT DoC)

– IHG has a targeted promotion that can deliver up to 71,000 Rewards Club points – it is targeted and did not work for me

This one ‘stacks’ with the Accelerate promotion.

– Hyatt has a generous promotion that gives up to 1,000 points for any stay (even award stays) – register even if you have no plans to stay.

– Cathay Pacific is adding a ‘seasonal’ service to Cape Town direct from Hong Kong on a A350 starting mid November until mid-February 2019

I could not find any award seats using the British Airways Executive Club site so far. Alaska Airlines charges just 62,500 miles for the whole flight from the US via Hong Kong to South Africa on Cathay Pacific in Business Class one-way.
