Around The World Sweet Spot: I love sweet spots, as many others in this hobby do. Sweet spots allow for us to stretch our points and miles so far it’s mind blowing. Here’s a sweet spot I hope to soon try out.
Transfer Bonus To Avios: Amex is offering a 40%-50% transfer bonus when transferring Membership Reward points to British Airways Avios, Iberia Avios or Aer Lingus Avios. Transfer bonuses are another way to spend less miles on award flights.
Flying Blue Promo Awards: For the current Promo Awards, you can get to Europe for less miles out of Boston, Houston or Chicago. Chicago seems like a great deal since the offer is for business class.
So You’re Not Getting $125: Last week the internet lit up with links to claim your $125 from the Equifax data breach settlement. Well it looks like we’re not getting anywhere close to that. Oh they’re such a tease!
Adding A Free Leg To United Award Flights: We’ve covered this in depth on the Travel Miles 101 site, but it’s a good reminder to check all the possibilities when booking an award flight with United miles.
How Long Venture Miles Transfers Take: It was welcome news when Capital One decided to make their Venture Miles a flexible currency. Previously you could only redeem miles for travel credits at $.01. Now that you can transfer them to airline partners, how long do transfers take?
How Much Are Points Worth?: You read a lot about bloggers saying that they value a certain point/mile at $X. It’s a good baseline to follow so that you know you’re getting a good deal with your award redemption.
