Have you ever been short miles for an award flight?
Combining miles from multiple accounts (for example, spouses) can boost your balance so you can book the award. But it usually is NOT worth it. Because most airlines charge expensive fees to share points between accounts.
But did you know JetBlue allows friends and family members to pool their points for no charge?
