If you time your purchases right, you can amplify the earnings with more miles…

Cancel and Refund a British Airways Award Ticket From Just $5.60

I spent a few nights this week in Dallas at the CardCon and FinCon conferences both as an attendee and a panelist. I originally had booked flights from Houston to Dallas and back to head to the conferences, but when it came down to it, it had been a busy week for our family and I really didn’t want to go to the airport super early in the morning and deal with all of the steps involved with flying. Instead, I…

How to Keep Your British Airways Avios from Expiring

With few exceptions, airline miles will eventually expire if you don’t use them. Some types of miles such as those with ANA have set expiration dates regardless of how much other activity you have in your account, while many others types of miles, especially within the US programs, won’t expire as long as you continue to have account activity where you are earning or redeeming miles at least every 12 – 36 months, depending on the program. That said, some…

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.

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…

Limited Time 40% Transfer Bonus from Amex to British Airways

It has been a little while since I was legitimately excited about an Amex transfer bonus, but I think I am actually excited about one that was just launched today! As you may have already noticed, late last week Amex quietly bumped the everyday transfer rate to British Airways up from a 5 Membership Reward points = 4 British Airways Avios ratio to an even 1:1 ratio. This 1:1 ratio is where it has been until late in 2015, but it…
