Amazon has another Hotels.com lightning deal today, where you can get a $50 Hotels.com gift card for $40.
Amazon has had this deal frequently recently, but is it worth it?
There are good and bad things about using Hotels.com.
Here are some pros and cons:
If the Points Guy’s valuation of miles is correct, 5k Virgin America miles are worth between $75 and $115.
Virgin America’s wine division emailed me this offer yesterday: Buy 15 bottles of wine for $80, get 5k Virgin America miles.
Frontier got torn apart in the news and social media a couple weeks ago when snow and stranded crews caused a deluge of cancellations and mishandled baggage.
Frontier is coming back from its rough Christmas with the return of a crazy promotion they introduced in October: A 75% off promo code.
Uber sent out a promo in partnership with Hotels.com a couple weeks ago.
It said you could earn $30 off your next Hotels.com stay if you take an Uber ride between 12.19 and 12.26.
I never get a new credit card without having a solid rundown in my head of its useable benefits.

I rarely drive for Uber or Lyft anymore, mainly due to the falling price of fares making it not very lucrative.
But I’m glad that I’m still an approved driver on both ridesharing platforms, and I keep my accounts active by giving a ride every few months.
Here are the 5 main reasons it pays to be a driver, even if you don’t give rides:
1. Referral bonuses
Uber and Lyft both offer insane driver sign-up bonuses from time to time, in order to keep their driver numbers high and ward off the surge pricing that so angers customers.
I once wrote about a $5K bonus from Lyft.
If you have a driver account, you can refer your friends to drive, and you’ll both get a bonus.
A friend and I once made $600 each, just because he signed up and completed 20 rides.
Uber introduced self-driving cars in Pittsburgh a few months ago, and now they’re in San Francisco as well.
Don’t worry, you’ll still have a human in the driver’s seat.
They just won’t be driving. They’ll be enjoying the sights with you.
Here is the Q&A Uber sent out today:
Alaska Airlines bought Virgin America earlier this year, and the deal finally closed today.
