Hi Daraius,
I am spending $20,000 to get the British Airways 100,000 miles.  Is it worth an extra $10,000 in spending to get the ‘companion cert.’ ?  I’m stuck only using it on British Airways flights.  Can I use it with British Airways Avios points on British Airways flights?  What have you two done with your Companion certs.?

10 Ways to Use 50,000 Alaska Airlines Miles!

Don’t forget to follow me on Facebook or Twitter!

I don’t earn a commission if you are approved for the 50,000 miles Alaska Air card.  But it is one of the best cards (in my opinion) available right now.  And the highest bonus which I’ve seen on the Alaska Air card.

Not only is the minimum spending low at $1,000 within 3 months, but it is issued by Bank of America which means that you’re not applying for another card from banks like Chase, American Express and Barclays.

At the very least, 50,000 Alaska Air miles could get you:

  • 2 domestic round-trip coach flights on American Airlines or Delta within the US
  • 1 round-trip coach flight to Hawaii
  • 1-Way to Asia in Business Class on Cathay Pacific
  • 1-Way to India or Africa in Coach on Cathay Pacific
  • $100 off an Alaska Air ticket of $200+ for 10,000 miles

100,000 Points British Airways Card Is Back!

[Emily and I do NOT get a commision if you are approved for the British Airways 100,000 mile credit card using the link in this post.  But we always include the best offer for a card even if it doesn't pay us a commission.  You don't have to use our links, but thanks for your support.]  

The 100,000 Avios points British Airways card is back!

This is better than the 50,000 point offer which pays us a commission, but the mother-in-law rule says that I share better offers regardless of whether or not they pay a commission!  So I’ve removed all links to the other 50,000 point offer over the weekend.
