Korean Air changed its partner award chart this week.  And because of that you can now transfer your Chase Ultimate Rewards points to Korean Air (and then fly on Delta) to Hawaii for just 25,000 miles in coach and 45,000 miles in Business Class from the US!

To get to Hawaii, other airlines charge anywhere from 35,000 to 45,000 miles in coach and up to 80,000 miles for Business Class!

Korean Air Hawaii

Aloha! You Can Now Use Korean Air Miles to Fly to Hawaii on Delta for Only 25,000 Miles Round-Trip in Coach, or 45,000 Miles in Business Class!

This is an amazing deal, because most other airlines charge many more miles for award tickets to Hawaii!

And I’ll explain why this makes Chase Ultimate Rewards points the BEST for getting to Hawaii.

However, note that a supervisor wasn’t able to actually book the flights at the lower level because their systems have not yet updated.  But the supervisor acknowledged the new award chart which requires fewer miles.

Fly to Europe This Winter for 35,000 Miles (or Less!)

If you’re thinking about traveling to Europe this winter, you can get a very good deal with US Airways off-peak award tickets.  Between January 15, 2015, and February 28, 2015, it only costs 35,000 miles round-trip in coach class to fly from North America (including Hawaii) to Europe.

Normally, a low-level award ticket on these routes costs 60,000 miles, so this is a great deal!  And because it’s off-peak season, you can often find great deals on European hotels, tours, and attractions too.

You might be able to take vacation days surrounding Presidents Day (February 16, 2015) for a romantic European Valentine’s Day!

Miles and points enthusiasts are usually meticulous in planning their travels, but sometimes life gets in the way and we have to change our plans or cancel altogether.

Or other times folks might jump on a low or mistake fare and realize afterwards that it doesn’t work for their schedule.

If you need to change your plans, airlines and online travel agencies (OTAs) like Orbitz, Expedia, and Priceline all have different cancellation policies.  And with airlines, fare rules can be rather complicated.   So here’s a rundown of what to expect when you cancel a ticket!
