Which Miles & Points Should You Collect for Award Flights?

Million Mile Secrets reader Alex writes:

I was wondering if you can give me advice on choosing the right credit card.  I already have a Miles & More (Lufthansa) account and ~30,000 miles or so in there.

I’m located in Miami and I try to stick to Lufthansa or Star Alliance partners as my preferred airlines.  I fly at least 2 times a year to Europe or Asia but also make some trips within the US.

Great question, Alex!  It can be hard to decide which miles & points to collect for your trip, especially if you’re new to our hobby.

If you already have an idea of where & how you want to travel and which airlines or alliances you prefer, you can narrow down your choices of which credit cards to apply for.

And knowing which airlines serve your home airport will help a great deal in making a decision!

Why You Should (or Should NOT) Change Your Chase Freedom to Freedom Unlimited!

Million Mile Secrets reader, Sanil tweeted:

Should I upgrade my card from Chase Freedom to Chase Freedom Unlimited?

Great question, Sanil!

Both cards have no annual fee and the ability to earn Chase Ultimate Rewards points which you can redeem for cash back.

Or transfer to travel partners if you also have the Chase Sapphire PreferredChase Ink Plus, or Chase Ink Bold (no longer available) card.

The card that’s best for you depends on your spending habits.  And you will NOT earn a sign-up bonus if you convert your Chase Freedom to the Freedom Unlimited.  I’ll explain!
