Here’s a roundup of the week’s points, miles and travel industry news you may have missed:
Earn 1,000 Delta SkyMiles with SPG
Stay two nights or longer at any Starwood hotel through January 31, 2016 and you’ll earn 1,000 bonus Delta SkyMiles. When booking, use rate code AIRPRODL and be sure to have your SkyMiles number saved in your SPG profile.
Last Few Days to Earn 80,000 Bonus Marriott Points
Finally, the increased sign-up bonus on the Marriott Rewards Premier Credit Card is coming to a close on Monday, August 31, so it’s your last chance to rack up these extra points. You can earn 80,000 points when you spend $3,000 within the first three months of opening the card. The annual fee of $85 is not waived for the first year, but this card gives you perks like automatic Silver elite status, no foreign transaction fees and a free night in a Category 1-5 Marriott every year after your account anniversary date.
Earn 80,000 IHG Bonus Points and $50 Credit
UPDATE: The link for 80,000 points appears to no longer be working. There is an active link for 60,000 points after you spend $1,000 in the first three months and a $50 statement credit after your first purchase. That’s not as strong as other recent offers, but is better than the current public offer of 60,000 points with no statement credit.
In other sign-up bonus news, the IHG Rewards Club Select Credit Card is offering 80,000 points and a $50 statement credit when you spend $1,000 within the first three months. This card comes with automatic Platinum elite status, and earns a free night certificate valid at any IHG property upon your account anniversary each year. Plus, the first year’s annual fee of $49 is waived.
Snag 30,000 Flying Blue Award Miles with AccorHotels

You’ll earn up to 60,000 Le Club AccorHotel points that can be converted automatically to Flying Blue points in your account.
AAdvantage Awards Limited on Hawaiian Airlines
