$200 back on $500 at Away Travel [targeted Sapphire Reserve offer]

7

There is a new targeted offer out for Away Travel that’s good for $200 back on $500 or more. This offer is a Chase Sapphire Reserve exclusive, so you’ll only find it in your Chase Offers on that card. Still, this could be a nice discount if you’re looking for a new bag.

The Deal

Key Terms

  • Expires 2/28/22
  • Valid one time only

Quick Thoughts

This could be a pretty good deal if you need two carry on bags. Two carry on bags with a personalized luggage tag each (which is a $10 add-on) came to $507 with tax where I live.

After $200 back, that would be an out of pocket cost of $300. A price point of $150 per bag seems reasonable enough for a carry-on bag (obviously you can get them more cheaply or you can spend a fortune on others). Alternatively, Away’s aluminum bags cost about $550 right now, so you could get an aluminum bag at way less than what Rimowa would charge if that’s your thing.

Doctor of Credit notes that Away ran a sale for 50% off this past fall. I agree with his assessment that it might be worth waiting for a sale after you sync this.

Would this work if I make two separate purchases that combined hit $500 before the end date? Or is it required to spend $500 all at once.

One of the luggages I want to buy is currently out of stock.

I don’t know much about luggage, or the specialized carry-on only luggage for those that do not check luggage. (I usually check too much. I am trying to learn how to travel lighter.). If I recall correctly this “Away” brand of luggage is a favorite of travel bloggers who do not check any luggage. Is that correct? Can anyone recommend a special piece of carry-on for someone like me who wants to learn how to travel lighter and without checking any bags? Thanks for the post, . I rarely look at Chase offers because they usually suck so bad.

If you have Chase Sapphire Reserve card you may want to look at the offers. They have special bonuses for high end stores with large bonuses only for the Reserve card. A few months ago I scored Allbirds $50 off $150 purchase. First time I had EVER seen an Allbirds offer anywhere (it was just before they went public). I was getting ready to pull the trigger on high top mizzles so it worked out great for me. And $200 off on $500 Away is a great deal for someone who likes Away luggage. Particularly when you can pay yourself back with UR points.

Also, I think perhaps the bloggers write positively about Away because they get freebies from Away. Just my opinion.

You can also use Pay Yourself Back (points instead of cash). Unfortunately, hard clamshell configurations dont work for me. Couldn’t find anything to buy that works for me.

@Sharon

What are you looking for in luggage? What is wrong with hard clamshell configurations? If I had my choice I would like to try something like the carry-on luggage used by flight attendants.

I was traveling frequently up until early 2020. I find that my luggage lasts about 15 months before something fails. I would love to try to travel without any checked baggage. That is my personal goal for 2022. Thanks!

Hotels seem to be eliminating drawers so when traveling I often have to live partially out of the suitcase. A clamshell doesn’t sit well on a rack or bench so it would need to lie on the floor and stay open which looks unsightly, is difficult to access and takes up a lot of room when open. Not my preference.

Also, I prefer soft side luggage where I seem to be able to stuff more in. And I like a few outside pockets. My favorite is Kipling because it weighs so little empty and has very sturdy zippers and larger wheels. unfortunately, I must be alone because they dont make my size and configuration anymore. I’m going to look at Briggs & Reilly but it looks too structured and heavy even when empty.

I prefer to check my luggage when flying. I love to travel by train overseas so I like something medium size and lightweight. Clamshells also difficult to open if I need to open it on a plane or train.
