Update: All the Ways to Earn Hilton Points!

I wrote several years ago about the best ways to get Hilton points.

Thanks to Million Mile Secrets reader Peter for commenting that it’s time for an update!  A lot has changed since 2012.

Since then, Hilton has made significant changes to its award chart, so their points aren’t worth as much as before.  But they’re still among the easiest points to get through credit card sign-up bonuses and spending.

I Did a Quick Search for Fares For Las Vegas to Los Angeles and Only Found 3 Available Sale Dates (All on Saturdays)!

You can probably find better prices if you don’t mind flying in coach.  I prefer to fly coach within the US to save money.  And I almost exclusively fly Southwest on domestic flights because Emily flies with me for (almost) FREE.

But it’s worth a look if you like traveling in style.  Let me know if you find a fare that works for you!

You Can Transfer Chase Ultimate Rewards Points to Korean Air Again

I wrote last month that Chase Ultimate Rewards point transfers to Korean Air would return some time in January 2015.

Chase has now confirmed that you’ll be able to transfer points to Korean Air again, starting January 25, 2015.

That’s great news for folks who book award tickets on Korean Air, or like using their miles for travel on partner airlines like Delta.

Should You Transfer Citi ThankYou Points to New Partner Virgin Atlantic?

Via View From the Wing, you can now transfer Citi ThankYou points to Virgin Atlantic.

Last year, Citi introduced points transfer to some airlines, including Singapore Airlines and Flying Blue (Air France / KLM).  It’s always good to have more airline partner choices!

That said, I’m not terribly excited by this news.  Virgin Atlantic is already a Chase Ultimate Rewards and American Express Membership Rewards transfer partner.  And they add big fuel surcharges to their award tickets!

Should You Transfer Citi ThankYou Points To New Partner Virgin Atlantic

Virgin Atlantic Is the Newest Citi ThankYou Transfer Partner

But folks who collect Citi ThankYou points might find this useful, especially if they use Virgin Atlantic miles to book award tickets on airlines that don’t add fuel surcharges, like Hawaiian Airlines.
