There’s going to be a ton of content coming out this week as I continue to expand on my Maximizing Amex series, so I’m taking a bit of a break today. However, I did think it would be fun to do a little virtual Easter egg hunt. I hid 10 of the following eggs in random posts from 2011. If you find one, simply comment below with the name of the post where you found the egg. The first person to find each egg and comment here will win  TPG Enhanced Memberships (ad free emails delivered with the day’s posts usually an hour before they post to the public and breaking email alerts of mistake fares and other time-sensitive deals). If you are already a TPG Member, you will be upgraded to the next tier. For example, Enhanced Members will be awarded Premium benefits (your choice of either a private phone consultation or two discounted award bookings – $50 a ticket each rather than $100+ in addition to the free early bird emails and breaking deal alerts).

In other points news, check out the following promos. I didn’t think they were worth of dedicated blog posts, but you may want to take advantage of them nonetheless.

1) Free 250 Hilton points for “liking” Hilton Garden Inn on Facebook. Once you “like” them, click on the “Like Us for Points” link on the left hand side of the screen and then enter your HHonors numbers in the form. You are obviously giving them access to your information, so “like” at your own risk, but it is an easy 250 free points. Hat tip to Loyalty Traveler

2) 50,000 mile sign-up bonus for the US issued Lufthansa Miles and More Barclays Mastercard. If you’ve overdosed on Amex/Chase/Citi sign-ups recently, this may be an easy way to get some more miles. I’m not a Miles & More expert, but you can use the miles on all Star Alliance flights, but note that fees are pretty high.  Hat tip to View from the Wing

Chase Sapphire Preferred® Card

With great transfer partners like United and Hyatt, 2x points on travel & dining and a 50,000 point sign up bonus, the Chase Sapphire Preferred is a great card for those looking to get into the points and miles game.
