Beware! American Airlines Now Selling VERY Restrictive Fares on Select Routes

And now, via One Mile at a Time and View From the Wing, American Airlines is officially selling Basic Economy tickets.  And United Airlines will soon do the same!  You can now buy American Airlines Basic Economy tickets for flights after March 1, 2017.

Southwest Fare Sale Starting at Just $39 One-Way

Book them before they’re gone!

Via Miles to Memories, you can book Southwest flights for just $39 one-way (that’s 1,657 Southwest points!).  But there are other more expensive routes that are still a great deal.  I found a one-way flight from Atlanta to Detroit for just $94 (or 5,341 Southwest points).

But you’ll need to book by March 2, 2017, for travel through June 14, 2017.  And certain routes have different different eligible travel dates.

How Long Will the 60,000 Point Southwest Premier Small Business Offer Last?

Million Mile Secrets reader, Victor, tweeted:

How long will the Southwest Rapid Rewards Premier Business Credit Card 60,000 point offer last?

Great question!

You can earn 60,000 Southwest points with the Chase Southwest Premier small business card when you spend $3,000 on purchases within the first 3 months of opening your account.

That’s a 10,000-point increase from the previous offer on this card!

Chase has NOT indicated if this is a limited-time offer.  But they can change their mind at any point.

7 Reasons Why Credit Cards Are Safer Than Debit Cards

Considering diving in to the miles & points hobby, but aren’t sure about the risks of credit cards?
