What If You’re Not in the New York Area?

Southwest – If you need more Southwest points, Chase Ultimate Rewards points transfer to Southwest.  Plus, if you have the Southwest Companion Pass, a friend can fly with you for (almost) free!

British Airways – If you’re a short flight away from New York, you can save miles by using British Airways Avios points to book an award flight on American Airlines.   Chase Ultimate Rewards points , American Express Membership Rewards points, and Starwood Preferred Guest points transfer to British Airways.

Update:   Thanks to reader tassojunior for reminding folks that you can cheaply get from Washington, DC, to Newark by taking BoltBus (~$19 1-way) or Amtrak (~$57 1-way).

Or you could transfer Chase Ultimate Rewards points to Amtrak and travel between Washington, DC, and New York for 4,000 Amtrak points 1-way in coach.  Here’s how to book Amtrak with points.

Get Free Hotel Nights With These Cards

Link:   Hot Deals – Hotel Credit Cards

If you book a cheap flight, remember there are lots of ways to get cheap or free hotel rooms with points from credit card bonuses and spending!

To find hotels that can be booked with points, I like using Hotel Hustle (which even shows you if rooms are actually available!) or AwardMapper.

Remember, you can transfer flexible points like Chase Ultimate Rewards or American Express Membership Rewards to different hotel programs.

Don’t Forget You Can Transfer Points From Bank and Airline Programs to Hotels

Check out my posts on all the ways to earn Hilton and Hyatt points!

Note:  Folks who want to book paid stays could check out discount sites like Orbitz, Expedia, or TravelPony for deals.  But remember you won’t get stay credits or points (and might not have your elite status recognized).

And if you’re feeling adventurous or prefer a local, more neighborhood feel, Airbnb is a great way to save money on acommodations, especially for longer stays.

Bottom Line

Less than $560 for a round-trip ticket from the New York to Sao Paolo is a great deal!

  1. MegaBus and Bolt Bus go to Newark (downtown) for about $19 from DC. Short ride to airport. Amtrak also stops there.
