Here are five great deals to earn some extra points with hotel bookings or online shopping. These are limited-time offers, so don't wait!
Earn 6 Lifemiles for Every $1 at Booking.com
Until September 30th, when you use the Avianca Lifemiles and Booking.com partner website, you will get 6 Lifemiles for every $1 spent. Please note that bookings must be completed before the Lifemiles will be received, and it could take up to 10 weeks after your stay for the miles to show up in your account.
There are a few circumstances where proof of booking and stay might be required, so save your receipts, bank statements, etc. Lifemiles won't be received for any cancelled bookings. This deal was launched on August 1st, but isn't retroactive for any bookings made before that date.
To receive your Lifemiles, make very sure to fill in your correct Lifemiles membership number when booking. Booking.com won't be responsible for a missing or incorrect membership number, and you won't be able to get your Lifemiles.

If you're a fan of Hyatt properties, this deal is for you. Until September 30th, anyone booking and completing a stay using the new Hyatt App will receive 500 Hyatt Points on every qualified purchase. Only one booking per property per stay will earn reward points, regardless of how many nights or rooms are booked. You can see more details on the Hyatt website.
