Maybe it’s because September 30 is the last day of the fiscal year, but a lot of great promotions, deals and transfer opportunities will be coming to an end on Friday, so now’s your last chance to take advantage of them.

1. Transfer Amex points to Continental Airlines. For information check out my recent post and video on the subject.

2. 50% bonus on first-time American Express Membership Rewards transfers to Delta (and 25,000 MQM bonus when you transfer 100,000 or more points). Registration required (targeted).

3. Get in on the 67% bonus/40% rebate on repeat American Express Membership Rewards points to Delta transfers. Registration required.

4. The 100% bonus on purchased and inter-account transferred Delta SkyMiles. You effectively double your miles every time you transfer them to someone else’s SkyMiles account (and/or back again to your own) for what amounts to a nominal fee. Check out my post on it here.

For information on maximizing Delta awards take a look here, here, here and here.

5. Sign-up for Fairmont emails and receive 500 free Aeroplan miles. Enter the code: PASHN, then add your Aeroplan number to your profile.

6. Earn a 50% bonus on purchased Amtrak points. Hey, you never know when you might need to train it somewhere in a hurry.

Even though several great promotions will be ending after tomorrow, stay tuned for new deals this fall and during the upcoming holiday travel season!

Premier Rewards Gold Card from American Express

With some great bonus categories and an annual fee that’s waived for the first year, the American Express Premier Rewards Gold Card has a lot going for it. If you don’t have PRG, now’s as good a time as any to add it to your wallet, as Amex added some great new benefits several months back.
