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?

1. Transfer AMEX Membership Rewards Points to Etihad and Get a 30% Bonus
Via Reddit, you’ll get a 30% bonus when you transfer AMEX Membership Rewards points to Etihad through June 15, 2016. Etihad is AMEX’s newest Membership Rewards transfer partner.
We Flew First Class on Etihad to India, but We Used American Airlines Miles for the Tickets
Etihad’s luxurious First Class Apartments are ~117,000 Etihad miles one-way from New York (JFK) to Abu Dhabi. So with this bonus, it would cost ~91,000 AMEX Membership Rewards points for an award seat. That’s an excellent value considering these tickets cost thousands of dollars!
Flying on Etihad’s partner airlines, like American Airlines, can be a good use of miles.
Because Etihad does NOT charge fuel surcharges for award tickets on partner airlines. But there are fuel surcharges when booking award tickets on Etihad flights.
