Miles & Points Tidbits – 1/18/14

1. 10% Off TransAtlantic Flights on Alitalia

You can score an eCoupon code good for 10% off of Alitalia flights simply by signing up for their newsletter here.

There are a couple of things you should keep in mind with this offer. Alitalia does charge some sizable fuel surcharges, so be on the lookout. In addition to the surcharges, the 10% discount will only apply to Alitalia flights and not any codeshares. So make sure you are picking flights on Alitalia metal.

Travel must be booked by midnight EST on February 28th for travel to be completed by March 27th, 2014.

Surprisingly the terms state that “the discount will be taken off the total price of the purchase transaction” which seems to imply that the discount is not just limited to the base fare as is the case sometimes.

To celebrate their new partnership, SPG and Caesar’s Entertainment are running a little online slot machine sweepstakes offering the opportunity to win prizes including a free night awards, bonus SPG points, or even the Grand Prize all-inclusive weekend in Las Vegas including business class airfare.
