Two Very Rare Airline Business Class Awards Available Today

As I shared a little while back, I have a travel goals 2020 list where I outline where we hope to go each year until 2020, but it’s just a list. God willing at least some of trips on the list will happen, but odds are some of it won’t happen, or at least it won’t happen when and where it is currently penciled in. However, part of the reason some of it might not happen is simply because an…

Fly from Just 3,000 Points Using Amex Transfer Bonus to British Airways

Periodic transfer bonuses are part of the stable of miles and points tools that my family uses to really stretch what we have for travel that we otherwise couldn’t afford. You can’t predict most transfer bonuses, but you can choose to utilize them when they become available. Along those lines, through September 17, 2017, there is a 40% transfer bonus from the Amex Membership Rewards program to British Airways Avios that increases the transfer ratio from a one to one ratio to 250…

Really Good European Flight Sale Today!

I think it is fair to say that some have become desensitized a bit to European airfare sales in the $400 – $500 per round trip range, but you really shouldn’t be. At least, I shouldn’t be. Being able to fly from somewhere like Houston to Scotland on a full service airline for around $500 per round trip is pretty outstanding, especially if you have a wide range of dates to pick from. Along those lines, right now you can book…

Using Reduced Mileage Awards to Fly for 15,750 American Miles!

A very valuable discount that is available to those who hold one of the American Airlines Citi or Barclaycard co-branded credit cards is a discount of up to 7,500 miles on flights to/from select cities each month via the Reduced Mileage Awards available exclusively to American Airlines card holders. I write about these discounts a few times a year, but it is something that is worth repeating periodically because of how many miles it can save your family on AAdvantage award trips. The list…

60,000 Mile Increased American Airlines Bonuses Ending Today

Earlier this summer it seemed like every rewards credit card out there had a temporarily increased sign-up bonus, but one by one most of them have come to an end…at least for now. At some point today another temporarily increased bonus from a co-branded airline card is scheduled to drop back down to earth, this time it will reportedly be the Citi AAdvantage Platinum Select personal and small business cards ending their increased bonuses. I know that AAdvantage miles aren’t a…

Find Out How Many Bonus American Miles You Can Earn Shopping

Right now the AAdvantage eShopping portal has a unique promotion going on where you can earn bonus miles for the purchases you make across their site from 6/5/2017 – 6/30/2017. What is unique about this one-time bonus is that your specific offer is a “mystery” until you log in and check. They say your bonus can be hundreds or thousands of miles. My bonus was 1,200 bonus miles with $300 in cumulative spending from 6/5 – 6/30, which isn’t earth shattering, but isn’t terrible…

Last Day for Discounted SPG Points or Airline Miles at 1.56 Cents Each!

Today is April 30th, and that means it is the last day you can purchase Starwood Preferred Guest points with a 30% discount off the regular price. Buying miles and points obviously isn’t as good as getting them without an out of pocket cost, but it can still make sense when the cost of buying the points is less than the flight or hotel would have cost if paid for outright. Getting 30% off the regular price for SPG points takes…

AA 591: Are We at a Tipping Point for Air Travel?

Tempers are high, patience is short, cell phones are out, planes are full, and the tension is palpable. Recent incidents including yesterday’s American flight 591 where a passenger and a flight attendant had a run in over a stroller seem to be systematic of what looks like a larger problem. Are we now at a tipping point for air travel in this country…
