Earn Award Flights Faster by Combining JetBlue Points Accounts for Free

Have you ever been short miles for an award flight?

Combining miles from multiple accounts (for example, spouses) can boost your balance so you can book the award.  But it usually is NOT worth it.  Because most airlines charge expensive fees to share points between accounts.

But did you know JetBlue allows friends and family members to pool their points for no charge?

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!

Rumor: AMEX to Make It Easier to Earn Same-Card Sign-Up Bonus Twice

Via Reddit, the rumor mill is blowing unsourced news that American Express will be scrapping its current policy to disallow you from earning the sign-up bonus on a card if you’ve ever had the card before.

I’m selective about the unsubstantiated buzz I post because it sometimes turns out to be incorrect!

In this case I’m writing about it because it makes sense that AMEX would relax their strict policy based on what else has been happening with them.

Rumor AMEX To Make It Easier To Earn Same Card Sign Up Bonus Twice

If the Rumor Is True, Folks Who Closed Cards Like the Premier Rewards Gold and Starwood AMEX Would Be Eligible to Earn the Sign-Up Bonus Again. That’d Make It Easier to Get Free Stays at Places Like the St. Regis Princeville Resort

Also, I want it to be true so very, very badly! :)
