A roundup of good deals, inside scoops and advice for the traveler:

Bonus miles with mortgage

For a limited time, homeowners can get extra AAdvantage miles if they buy or sell homes through the AAdvantage Program for Mortgages and Real Estate. For every $10,000 worth of transactions (for the sale or purchase of a home), you'll earn 1,500 bonus miles, up to a maximum of 25,000 bonus miles. That's in addition to the regular miles earned under the program. For more information, call (800) 852-9744.

The three Pointe Hilton resorts in Phoenix are offering great summer deals, with rates starting at $89 per night, compared to $369 per night for the same type of rooms in winter. This rate offers a two-room suite, complimentary in-suite coffee, and management-hosted cocktails served poolside; plus, kids stay free in their parents' suite. A number of package plans offer extra perks. A Family Fun Package (starting at $189 for a family of four) includes different amenities at each property. At Squaw Peak children are enrolled daily in Coyote Camp and have use of all amenities at the Hole-in-the-Wall River Ranch and Kid's Koncierge. At the Tapatio Cliffs resort they enjoy a poolside cabana and use of water toys and amenities plus afternoon fruit, cheese and refreshments. At South Mountain they enjoy a free shuttle to nearby shopping, a one-hour family golf lesson, and free in-suite video games. All Golf Packages include a round of golf per day, full American breakfast, a sleeve of balls, bag tag and club storage, daily newspaper and free use of the resort fitness center.
