How To Combine Points From Two Banks To Book An Award

Since we started writing Your Mileage May Vary, several of our friends have started collecting points and miles. I feel a level of satisfaction when they’re able to go on that first award trip, partially because of our help. Just like any mentor, occasionally we’ll get a question about a topic where we don’t know the answer. While I could just say that I really don’t know about that, I like to use these situations to learn about things I hadn’t focused on before. Such was a question about how to combine points from two different bank programs.

While the answer may seem obvious if you’ve been collecting points and miles for a while, for someone just starting out this can be very confusing.

I Used Points From All Three Banks And We’re Flying To Germany On Singapore Airlines!

It’s not often that I get excited about a flight. Remember, I’m the person who proudly wrote how we’re over flying in business class “just because we can.” However when all of the puzzle pieces fell into place and allowed me to book a flight I had my eyes set on for forever, I had to pull the trigger.

Here’s the post I wrote about how I wanted to book a flight on Singapore Airlines from New York – JFK to Frankfurt. I had the flight on waitlist for saver space but I kept checking to see if anything opened up.

Here’s A Totally Legal Way To Transfer Membership Rewards To A Family Members Airline Or Hotel Account

When it comes to using credit cards to pay for travel, the earning of the points is the easy part. Booking the award travel is where the process gets complicated. This post is about a specific situation that I imagine more than just a few people have found themselves in. It involves the transferring American Express Membership Rewards points to an airline frequent flyer program to make an award booking.

Using flexible points in this manner is the best way to get oversized value for your points and the basis for all for posts from people flying in Business and First class seats to locations all around the globe. For this example, I’ll use the flights I booked with ANA for my dad and his wife to fly to Bali. Without them knowing, I went ahead and booked them on the EVA Airways Hello Kitty plane 🙂 Continue reading “Here’s A Totally Legal Way To Transfer Membership Rewards To A Family Members Airline Or Hotel Account”
