hong kong sky line

Last January was my first time to visit Asia and Hong Kong was the first stop. Hong Kong quickly became one of my favorite cities and I already can’t wait to go back. I didn’t get to see everything it has to offer due to the short time I spent there. This is a short list of what to do…

Alaska Airlines are actively promoting 40% bonus miles when you purchase their miles. This promotion ends today. So what do they do to their most sought after award a day before the promotion ends? Alaska Airlines devalues emirates awards without notice! Some awards are now going to cost TWICE as many miles as they did just yesterday. So much for being…

Miles-and-points-beginners-guide

At the end of the day the changes…

Avios 4500

British Airways Avios is my favorite currency for short haul award redemption on American Airlines. Unfortunetly, as of February 2nd, 2016 British Airways Terminates 4,500 Avios Award in North America! Those redemption will now start at 7,500 Avios, and other tiers of redemption remain unchanged.     This means, all flights that are currently priced at 4,500 Avios one-way in economy…
