Million Mile Secrets reader, Lindsay, tweeted:

What credit card can I apply for that will allow me to transfer points to American Airlines?  I already have the Citi® Platinum Select® AAdvantage® World MasterCard®.

Can You Save Time Booking ITA Matrix Itineraries With BookWithMatrix?

I’ve written that ITA Matrix is a powerful airfare search tool with many built-in options not available elsewhere.  It’s simple to perform basic searches, and you can filter results by airline, departure and arrival times, flight duration, number of stops, and more.

But there’s a big limitation – you can NOT book a ticket on ITA Matrix.  Once you find a fare, you must purchase your flight directly through the airline or with an online travel agency.

Now, there’s a way to quickly book ITA Matrix itineraries without hunting for the fare elsewhere.  BookWithMatrix finds the fare for you!  All you do is copy and paste the itinerary from the ITA Matrix search.

Are there any issues with booking with an Online Travel Agency (OTA) versus directly with airlines?

Great question, Umair!

There are pros and cons to booking with an Online Travel Agency (OTA), like Orbitz, Expedia, or Priceline.  But in many cases, you’ll earn more miles & points booking with an online travel agency than you would directly with the airline.
