Avios: Iberia vs British Airways: Which Avios to Use to Fly Iberia in Spain?

  Avios is the common currency for all 3 airlines, British Airways, Aer Lingus, and Iberia, which might give you a false idea that all these programs are the same or similar. Nothing can be further from the truth. They have very different programs, separate peak and off-peak calendars, and, most importantly, different fuel surchargeContinue Reading

Previous post: Deals and Unicorns in the New 25% Citi Transfer Bonus to Flying Blue — Part 1: USA to Israel UPDATE 6.2019: This article was posted 3 months ago when Amex had the same 25% transfer bonus to Flying Blue.

Update: Almost EVERYTHING You’ve Heard About the Latest Hilton Honor Devaluation Is True! The Americas and Europe, Are There Any Deals Left?

UPDATED 6.19 I originally wrote a series of posts about the cheapest Hilton hotels in Spring 2018. Since then, I updated it twice — the first time in September 2018, and the second time in April 2019. I had no idea that I’d have to update it again so soon, but things don’t stay theContinue Reading

The New Sonesta Credit Card Review (65,000-95,000 Points) and 7 Best Redemptions

So there is a new kid on the block — the Bank of America Sonesta World Mastercard. I have never stayed at a Sonesta so I had to educate myself on the merits and peculiarities of this hotel chain. After digging into Sonesta, I can tell you one thing: I’d go for the Sonesta creditContinue Reading

So You Want to Become an Air Courier to Save on Air Fare?

  When I came to America in 1992, there was one important thing I had and an equally important thing I didn’t. I had a burning desire to travel the world, and – I should probably use the word but – I didn’t have any money. 🙁 Before I discovered credit cards, frequent flyer miles, andContinue Reading

My (Mostly) Miles’n’Points Epic Trip to Hong Kong, Bali, and Tokyo and a Plea for Help

  I’m on the road again. Woo-hoo! In January, I was going to travel to the Bahamas (Atlantis) and Colombia, but it didn’t happen due to an illness in the family. Hopefully, the second time is the charm. I’m very excited about my upcoming trip, since I’m about to visit 2 places I’ve never been to.Continue Reading

Delta SkyMiles Deals Are Getting Weirder and Weirder and Why It’s a Good Thing (Plus More Delta One Suites)

Here is a direct link to the newest March 2019 Delta SkyMiles Deals For someone who rarely uses Delta miles, I write about them a lot. In fact, I write more about Delta than any other airline. I even wonder if it wouldn’t be a good time to rename my blog into something like —Continue Reading

UPDATED 3.16.19: Did Delta Raise the Saver Business Class Award Levels to Europe (?), AND The Best Value About Every Delta Flash Sale Is in the Routes It DOESN’T Advertise

I’m reposting it due to an important update. UPDATE 1: Gary Leff alerted me that Delta did raise its minimum redemption levels but only on its own flights; he was right, and there is something else. It only raised on Delta metal. The other SkyMiles partners, like Air France, for example, are not affected. I’veContinue Reading

Still Available: Delta One Suite to Amsterdam in Summer for 50,000 Virgin Atlantic Miles (or 39,000 Amex Points)

UPDATE 3.4.18: Still Working! It just reinforces my theory once again: Delta flash sales aren’t really sales, as this one keeps working after the expiration date just like other “sales” before it. Not that I’m complaining. 🙂 Some suite redemptions are gone (which was to be expected), but it didn’t take me long to findContinue Reading
