Mrs Weekly Flyer likes to visit a Spa or two sometimes when traveling. So when the SpaFinder 40 SkyMiles offer came up last year I loaded up the truck. I could earn miles and give Mrs Weekly Flyer a nice gift at the same time. We purchased enough gift cards to earn about 20,000 Delta SkyMiles. We then used the gift cards to visit eligible Spas.
With the SpaFinder offer gone and a surprise visit to the Spa coming up for Mrs Weekly Flyer, I thought it would be helpful to share a few ways to earn points by visiting Spas.
Bliss Spa Through Ultimate Rewards Mall
A Bliss Spa can be found in a number of Starwood hotels and resorts. We’ve visited a Bliss Spa at the W Hollywood, Atlanta, and a few other locations. They are generally nice and easy to visit, especially if you are already staying in the hotel.
You can earn 5 extra points per dollar with Bliss by spending through Chase’s Ultimate Rewards Mall – the program of the Chase Sapphire Preferred® Card, Chase Ink Plus and Chase Ink Bold. . Gift cards and other products can be purchased to earn the bonus points.
SpaFinder offers 5 Delta SkyMiles per dollar spent. In 2011, SpaFinder offered a 40 SkyMiles per dollar offer. The deal was only live for a few days. Many people were able to get in on the offer, including yours truly, but soon SpaFinder discovered it was a mistake and pulled the offer. Kudos to them for honoring the 40 SkyMiles per dollar deal. Putting a purchase on a travel credit card can earn even more points or miles.
You can earn 3 AAdvantage miles per dollar spent at SpaFinder when you purchase AAdvantage eShopping portal.
You can also opt to earn only 2 Hawaiian Airline miles with SpaFinder through the Hawaiian Airline site.
You can also purchase $100 worth of Spa Finder gift cards at Costco for only $79.99. This is inclusive of shipping. (Hat tip to reader D)
Earning At Hyatt Restaurants & Spas
Hyatt recently rolled out a program to earn and redeem points at Hyatt restaurants and Spas. Members will earn 5 points per dollar. For a full list of where you can earn points at a Hyatt, see the list of participating properties.
You can also redeem your points for certificates good at Spas and Restaurants which I described in the using Hyatt points for other redemption options post last week.
Earning Points At Starwood Hotel Spas
5.3. “Eligible Charges” are charges incurred by you on your room account for Eligible Rates, food and beverage (excluding alcoholic beverage purchases where prohibited by law), direct dialed telephone and direct-dialed in-room fax, laundry/valet, and in-room movies and video games only. Eligible Charges do not include: …..
(d) other fees paid such as parking, business center, high-speed internet access, retail stores, spa products and servicesand greens fees;”
You can earn points by visiting Spas. The current offers are not as lucrative as the 2011 SpaFinder deal, but they are good enough not to be ignored.
Are there any other options you use to earn points at Spas?
