INSIDER SECRET: You can transfer points from Chase Ultimate Rewards, Amex Membership Rewards and Citi ThankYou to Flying Blue. These programs frequently have transfer bonuses to Flying Blue (often 25-30%), which can be stacked with the Flying Blue Promo awards for incredible savings. Thru July 20th Citi ThankYou is having a 25% transfer bonus to Flying Blue, so you can book the cheapest Flying Blue Promo Awards for only 9,000 Citi ThankYou points.
Looking for a cheap flight to Europe? Air France and KLM are offering steep discounts for July’s Flying Blue Promo Awards. These deals are from Minneapolis, Salt Lake City and Toronto to Europe. Right now, you can fly to most of Europe for fewer miles than what a domestic award flight would cost.
You’ll need to book these flights by July 30, 2019, for travel from September 1 to October 31, 2019.

The best deals vary from 10,750 miles to 14,500 miles for a one-way economy flight. The taxes and fees for most of these flights are ~$100-$120 per one-way ticket. I found deals to these cities, but there are certainly many others out there:

The cities in bold have flights starting at 10,750 miles one-way, although there could be other routes available at that price.
This sale also covers many other routes worldwide and throughout Europe, so it’s worth checking out the promotion page and doing a little research to see if anything tickles your fancy.
