At the start of 2017, some significant changes have been made to the Le Club AccorHotels program but if you are a Platinum member, you will still be able to earn up to 8.8% rebate (in equivalent points) on all eligible stays. From now until 18 January 2017, earn up to 8% in rebate when you make an eligible booking for any participating hotels by AccorHotels via ShopBack.
All bookings made on AccorHotels via ShopBack are elite qualifying and the base points earned all go towards obtaining and retaining your elite status (make sure you understand the difference between base and bonus points). ShopBack is an amazing tool online that stacks with everything else that you will earn - elite-qualifying points, status and miles. While I generally do not advocate earning cash back over miles, using ShopBack will allow you to double (or even triple) dip into promotions.
New Accelerate offers are up and you can now sign-in to see what your offers are for the upcoming quarter (15 May 2017 to 31 August 2017) ahead! In case you do not know what they are, they are basically a set of challenges that are tailored to your IHG Rewards Club account based on stay history and elite status. Completing these tasks will trigger an achievement bonus (which is usually quite impressive) that will earn you a lot of IHG Rewards Club points!
There is only one week left to take advantage of the double points promotion that Hilton Honors is running - from now until 03 May 2017, purchase at least 5,000 Hilton Honors Points and get 100% more!

Staying in Hilton properties in the coming months? Register now and earn triple points on all stays from 01 May 2017 to 31 August 2017 when you are a Hilton Honors Diamond Member - earn double points if you are not a Diamond member. As usual, registration is absolutely necessary before your stay concludes in order to earn the bonus points.
There is currently a limited-time offer for purchasing Mileage Plan (Alaska Airlines) Miles. For the first 2,500 members only, you can purchase 10,000 miles and get 4,000 bonus miles (total of 14,000 miles) for just US$295.63 (approx. S$412).
If you hold a MasterCard (and of course you should since the DBS Woman's World MasterCard needs to be in every Singaporean's wallet), you will be eligible for 12% off hotel bookings made on Expedia. All you have to do is to register the first six digits of your MasterCard in order to get a unique coupon code - if you wish to find out whether your desired hotel is participating in this promotion, you may use '542089' but do remember that the payment needs to be completed using an eligible MasterCard. I am also not sure if this promotion will stack with ShopBack but it is worth a try.
In anticipation of Amazon Singapore's upcoming entry, the LiveUp lifestyle membership program has been unveiled to offer SIngaporeans more savings and hopefully rope them in before the giant comes in to sweep everyone off their feet. The LiveUp lifestyle membership (with a free 60-day trial at the moment) comes with a range of lifestyle benefits that will most likely appeal to an average working adult.

Kaligo offers a great way to rake up miles (especially if you do not chase hotel loyalty statuses) quickly through hotel stays - if you travel a lot for business and pleasure (or if you are simply a big spender), you can easily earn enough miles to fly on First Class for free!
