Because of the mother-in-law rule, I tell you about the best possible offers. That’s why I’m telling you that I’ve updated my links for the Citi Hilton Reserve, Citi Hilton HHonors Visa Signature, and US Airways cards to better offers which don’t pay us a commission.

American Airlines explained how they’ll combine their AAdvantage frequent flyer program with US Airways Dividend Miles today, as part of their merger with US Airways. And it’s generally good news, because not a lot is changing.
Some folks were worried there would be major negative changes, like award tickets costing more miles, or transitioning to a revenue-based program (where you earn miles based on the cost of your ticket and not the distance flown) like Delta and United Airlines have done.
I’m happy to report that American Airlines is not changing their award chart or making any major changes to how you earn miles! Most of the changes will impact folks with elite status.
