Amazon Gift Cards for Avis rentals, Lifemiles 100% bonus promotion, Malaysia Airlines flight in trouble

– in a somewhat unusual promotion Avis is now offering Amazon gift cards worth up to 10% of the price of your rental (excluding taxes & fees)

I rent quite a number of cars from Avis – so I just went ahead and connected my accounts. Let’s see if it will actually post (US Rentals only).

You can get an additional 10% in gift cards when you use Amazon Alexa (not something I’d recommend for privacy reasons).

– Lifemiles is again running a 100% bonus promotion when sharing (transferring) miles – this can be a very worthwhile promotion if you have some cash and are looking a specific, high value Star Alliance redemption

– a KL bound Malaysia Airlines flight from Brisbane has been forced to turn around and land in the departure city
