On Monday, online travel agency Expedia.com® unveiled its new loyalty program, Expedia Rewards™ giving bargain-seeking travelers the opportunity to earn double or even triple their rewards when booking a trip. As you can imagine, this got us more than a little excited!
Our takeaway for this new program? It’s a great way to earn extra travel points in addition to the miles racked up in your frequent flyer program plus the credit card points you earn when booking the travel. You could get the most bang for your loyalty buck when taking advantage of Expedia Rewards from airfare purchases and travel packages.
Will you be signing up for the new Expedia Rewards program? We would love to hear your thoughts!

Earn While you Shop.
With the holidays fast approaching and shopping in full swing, we’d like to share one of our favorite tips for earning points and miles during the holiday season.
Two words: earn malls.
The number of people shopping online has grown exponentially over the past few years. And why not? Sitting at your computer in your pjs with a warm cup of hot chocolate sure beats battling the crowds at the mall. If you’re planning to do some (or all) of your holiday shopping online this year, be sure to take advantage of your favorite loyalty program’s online earn mall. Online earn malls allow you to earn points or miles for shopping through a virtual mall. In most cases you earn 1 point or mile per dollar spent, but many programs have holiday shopping deals on right now, so you may earn even more!
Here are a few programs that reward you for shopping online through their sites, but there are many more – be sure to check your loyalty program’s website before you start clicking:
- AIR MILES (Canada)
- American Airlines AAdvantage eShopping
- Aeroplan eStore
- Best Buy Reward Zone Online Malll
- Choice Privileges Shopping Mall
- Continental Airlines’ ShopOnePass

- Priority Club Rewards Mall
- US Airways Dividend miles Shopping Mall

Bonus tip: Double dip by paying for your goodies with a reward earning credit card. Just be sure to clear up that balance so you avoid a nasty surprise in the New Year.
