It’s the end of July, so check your email for your monthly newsletter from Disney Movie Rewards. There is a link at the bottom that will get you a mystery bonus. I got five points this month.
So I got my bi-monthly email telling that I haven’t logged into my Kellogg’s Family Rewards account in a while. This month, they were kind enough to send along a 200-point code with it.
I don’t know if the link is transferable, but it’s worth a shot. Check here and see if they give you the points.
They’re back! No, I don’t mean the characters from Toy Story, although they are back too.
I mean your monthly Disney Movie Rewards newsletter points. If you get the newsletter, it should be showing up in your inbox (or may have shown up last week). And if you don’t, you should. It’s free and gives you points every month. Just sign up at the home page.
It’s been a while since I’ve mentioned Disney Movie Rewards, so here we go. Just enter their trivia contest every other week and pick up free points. You get five points each time you do it and don’t need to get the questions right. It’s all about participation.
Want more points? Just go to the link above and change the “122” at the end to “123.” You’ll get the “hidden” Marvel quiz.
First, we’ll start off with the Kellogg’s Family Rewards quiz, which is actually just five questions about your snacking habits. And for that information, they’ll give you 500 points. That’s one of the better offers I’ve seen at KFR.
Next, exciting stuff for me:
I’ve had a lot of fun writing this blog over the past several years. And now, I’ve got an opportunity to expand my reach. I’ve been approached by Anthony Curtis of Las Vegas Advisor and Michael Trager of Travelzork to build out the points and miles section of Anthony’s LVA site. It’s hard to get that kind of exposure, so I was happy to take them up on it.
So I’m happy to announce that we are rolling out LVA Travel, aka “The Travel Game.” We’ll be writing about points and miles; travel and all kinds of other fun stuff. And while the existing site is all about Las Vegas, our portion will be global. In addition to checking out the site, you should also join the Facebook group, which will allow you to discuss the articles with other travelers.
Kellogg’s Family Rewards has started using bonus codes again. Clearly a positive for the consumer. I’m not sure what it says about cereal sales.
First, you can enter code at 2GET-GRIL-LING-2KFR at KFR for 100 points. Everybody is eligible for that.
Second, I got another inactivity code for 200. They tell me that I haven’t logged in for a while. I’m not sure why they keep saying that, because I clearly do, but I’m happy to take the points. I don’t know if the code was targeted, but you can give it a try here.
Well, this could get interesting.
I’ve started using a new app called Freebird (Use bonus code dec71) to book Uber and Lyft rides. The app gives you at least 250 points on each ride. Earn 5,000 points and they’ll give you $10.
How to Use Freebird
It’s easy. Open the app and use it to connect to Uber or Lyft. It’ll take you to the same rideshare site as if you went directly. Prices are the same (I checked.). Etc. I don’t know what the arrangement between Uber/Lyft and Freebird is.
How Do They Make Money?
Ahh, here’s the answer. They partner with local merchants. If you go to the merchant using Uber/Lyft and then make a purchase with the same credit card, Freebird gives you bonus points. I have no doubt that the arrangement with the merchant means that they pay something to the app.
Do I Have to Ride to A Merchant Partner?
No. You get Freebird points if you take any ride through the app. You’ll get more points if you take one to a Freebird partner.
Referrals and Sign-Up
If you sign up through my referral link (and I thank you if you do), we each get $5 for each of your first two rides. Enter promo code dec71 to activate the bonus for each of us.
