Lower Prices, More Available Seats When You Book Through American Airlines’ International Websites

Possible good news for folks who haven’t yet booked their holiday travel!

Via One Mile at a Time, you may find lower fares with American Airlines when you search on international American Airlines websites.  Up to ~75% less!

I had a difficult time replicating many lower fares.  But I found some destinations that had many more available seats than the US website.

Commenters on One Mile at a Time suggest these cheaper fares have been loaded by mistake.  So if you find a cheap fare and book it, there’s a possibility your ticket could be canceled.

Which Credit Cards Should I Get If I’ve Reached the Chase “5/24” Limit?

Update:   One or more card offers in this post are no longer available.  Check our Hot Deals for the latest offers. 

Million Mile Secrets reader, Joe, commented:

I’ve exhausted all credit card options with Chase due to the “5/24 rule.”

What other cards would you recommend?  My credit score is well above 800.  I just applied and was approved for the Barclaycard Arrival Plus card.  Are there others that are better?

Thanks for the question, Joe!

My top pick is The Enhanced Business Platinum® Card from American Express OPEN.  But there are plenty of great options!
