Most Domestic Flights As Low As 5,000 AA Miles

I was just looking at AA domestic flights and every route I’ve searched for so far has many days available for 5,000 AA miles. This goes as far as Oct 2020. The post Most Domestic Flights As Low As 5,000 AA Miles appeared first on Travel is Free.

Drew’s $100 Bet With The Blog-Haters

As of today: $0.00 has been claimed by haters. (I’ll update the dollar amount the minute it changes).   To those who complain about bloggers killing your deals, I’ve got a $100 opportunity for you to prove that your deal was killed by one of those evil deal-killing bloggers. From discovering all of United’s routing rules (after the Continental...

Nick of FM on #40kFarAway [TIF Podcast]

Nick of FrequentMiler talks about his experience doing the “40K To Far Away” contest, where all 3 FrequentMiler bloggers see how far they can get, each with 40,000 of a different bank currency. Nick, given Citi TY Points, found and used the deal of the year with 7,500 Turkish Miles to Hawaii. We discuss his trip and the deals he’s found in our latest...

The Extreme Maximizing of JAL Miles

Whenever I’ve done posts comparing the prices across different programs I’ve already found that JAL Miles are among the lowest, but today I’ll show you how to potentially double the value of these already great miles.   As you’ll see, I first try to figure out the rules preventing me from abusing maximizing this program with stopovers, stops in my...

Asia Miles Award Charts & Routing Rules

Once again, I realized that there was no published Asia Miles partner award chart (which is different than the OneWorld Multi-Carrier Award Chart), and so I decided to make and quick publish the Asia Miles Partner Award Chart, alongside the Cathay and OneWorld Multi-Carrier. Plus, I’ll briefly communicate routing/stopover rules for each award chart....

British Airways Avios: Award Efficiency Rating

Drew, what in the world is an award efficiency rating, and how does British Airways Avios have one? Did you just make this up?” Yes, I did. But get used to it! Because I’m going to be doing posts with efficiency ratings more often! And not just British Airways Avios, but for many programs. In fact, I got the idea working on an upcoming JAL post. So...

TIF Podcast: Traveling Full-Time on Miles/Points w/ Katie & JT Genter

I first met JT and Katie when we’d just moved to Austin – JT was an accountant and Katie was a PhD student (making robots and smart stuff)… And now they are the ones out traveling the world full-time on miles and points, and writing for ThePointsGuy as well. So I say we switched lives! First, I’ll share where to listen and then give a summary.  ...

Explaining the 5+ British Airways Avios Award Charts

To compliment the recent post on Iberia’s 7 Award Charts(!), I wanted to give all 5 of the British Airways Award Charts as well. Given that you can transfer between them, that’s 12 award charts you can “choose from”- (have to weed through). Plus, BA Avios is one of the easiest mileage currencies to earn: you not only have the BA credit card, but can...

The 7 Iberia Avios Award Charts

While I’m working on award charts, I wanted another preliminary post that tackles one of the oddest airline programs – the Avios family. Today I wanted to go over the 7 award charts for redeeming Iberia Avios, because the prices are often different than British Airways (BA) Avios. There are ample earning opportunities – You can not only transfer to...

Rules For Japan Airlines (JAL) Miles Award Charts

Right now I’m digging into JAL Miles and before I do a post on the best uses, I wanted to give an overview of their four award charts. I have made condensed, easier to read charts and a map for JAL flights, and will generally explain which award chart you use for which redemption. I also made a chart showing which chart is better under which distance...
