New Travel Deals Posted & Weekly Reminders [Week of 10/16]

This post may contain affiliate links from our advertising partners, such as American Express. Read my Advertiser Disclosure policy here. Additionally, some of the offers on this page may no longer be available through Deals We Like.

A quick reminder: The “Travel Deals” tab has been updated with travel deals from the various deal-a-day site.

I also want to point out some great finds:

  • The Blakely Hotel, New York City – $199 (now-December 26) and $149 (January 1-March 31); There is also a timeshare presentation option where you can get free breakfast and a $125 credit to select restaurants in the area. I would highly recommend this hotel based on the location and the amazing reviews.
  • AMC Movie Tickets – $13 for two Silver AMC Movie Tickets (up to a $24 value); no expiration date

Top Promotions: Also, make sure to check out the “Top Promos” tab, which consolidates current credit card, airline, hotel, and car rental promotions into one succinct page.

Both these pages can be used as your one-stop-shop so you do not miss any deals or promotions! These pages are updated every time there is a new travel deal or promotion, so make sure to come back often!

  1. A random question but related to SWA Rapid Rewards. Have all your 1000 point bonuses from SPG posted to your SWA account yet? My SPG account shows four transfers to SWA on 10/16 but so far SWA has only picked up one. I will see what the account looks like tomorrow and I’ll call SWA if they don’t post the rest, but I am curious if others are being shorted too at this point.
