A couple of months ago, I told you that Alaska Airlines would be adding Condor to their list of partner airlines.
And now, via Travel Codex, you can use your Alaska Airlines miles for flights on Condor! I like this news, because more options for using miles & points is always a good thing! And it’s nice for folks who already fly Condor, because it does NOT have its own loyalty program.

Million Mile Secrets reader, NB, commented:
A word of caution for other readers. Always check an airline site to see how many frequent flyer miles they are charging for a flight. Because even with travel portal bonuses, you might still use fewer miles by transferring points directly to an airline and booking an award flight.
For example, I found Southwest airfare for $211, which would require ~16,880 Chase Ultimate Rewards points from my Sapphire Preferred ($211 cost of airfare / 1.25 cents per point) if booked through the Chase travel portal.
But Southwest was charging 12,601 Southwest points for the same flight. So I instantly transferred Chase Ultimate Rewards points to Southwest at a 1:1 ratio and booked the award flight.
This is terrific advice, NB!
Some folks can develop certain habits when booking award travel and miss opportunities to save miles and points!
For example, I recently shared 3 examples of booking Southwest flights, which result in different values for your Chase Ultimate Rewards points.
And you’ll likely come across similar scenarios when comparing award flight prices on with other airline transfer partners vs. flight prices through a travel portal.

I’ll explain why you’ll want to run the numbers when redeeming points for a flight!

Do you think the AMEX Starwood sign-up bonus will increase again to 35,000 points before they discontinue the card?
Following the recent limited-time 35,000 point offer for the AMEX Starwood card, the sign-up bonus went back to 25,000 Starwood points.
For the last several summers, AMEX has increased the sign-up bonus on the AMEX Starwood personal and small business cards for ~1 month.
I don’t have any inside information, but I have a feeling this year might be different. Because of the Starwood – Marriott merger, there’s a good chance the AMEX Starwood sign-up bonus stays at 25,000 Starwood points.

I’ll explain why it’s unlikely you’ll see an increased sign-up bonus for the AMEX Starwood cards.
