Here’s a round-up of the week’s points, miles and travel industry news you may have missed:

You can save up to 35% on Avis rentals and earn up to 3,000 AAdvantage bonus miles on Avis car rentals through December 31, 2014. In order to obtain the discount and the bonus miles, you must rent an Avis vehicle for two or more consecutive days at participating airport locations. The bonus miles are issued as follows:
- Earn 750 AAdvantage bonus miles on rentals of two days
- Earn 1,500 AAdvantage bonus miles on rentals of three-four days

Get Free Breakfast and 200 Bonus Starpoints at Four Points by Sheraton
To celebrate its 200th hotel, Four Points by Sheraton is offering 200 bonus Starpoints plus free breakfast at participating Sheraton properties. When booking, you must use the Promotion Code FP200. The offer is valid for stays booked and completed by December 31, 2014.
IHG Rewards Club Launches New Global Redemption Catalog
IHG Rewards has released its latest (and largest yet) Global Redemption catalog, and is offering a 15% discount until December 15, 2014 on certain items. The newest additions include:
- Ipad Air 2 (WiFi, 16GB)
- GoPro Hero4
- Bose Soundlink Color Bluetooth Speaker
- Nest Learning Thermostat 2nd Generation
I generally don’t recommend using points for these kinds of redemptions, since you don’t get good value. However, if you have an abundance of IHG Rewards points and would rather save cash, they have a decent selection of hot retail items.
Get 500 Bonus Points & 20% Off for Best Western Stays
Get 500 Best Western Rewards bonus points for booking your stay through the Best Western website. By selecting the Best Value or Web Special rate, you can also receive up to 20% off the participating hotel’s Flexible Rate. Register, book and stay by February 1, 2015. Check here for the list of participating countries, as the offer excludes most of Europe and Asia.
Save 20% With Hyatt’s Seven Day Flash Sale
You can save 20% during Hyatt’s seven day flash sale (extended to seven days from their usual 48 hour flash sale) using the promo code C48NOV. There is no list of participating hotels, but it seems as if most hotels within the US are included. The offer is valid for bookings made until December 1, 2014 and stays between December 1, 2014 – March 16, 2015. While this premium card has one of the highest annual fees on the market, it has several valuable perks that could make it worthwhile, depending on your travel patterns. These include a $200 annual airline rebate, lounge access, free Hilton Gold status and free Starwood Preferred Guest Gold status.
