This is the time of the year, and for many it's even earlier, that we plan for our summer vacations and many of us make plans that require traveling by air. Also, many of us belong to a frequent-flier miles program with select airlines. Here are three good tips on how to maximize your frequent-flier miles so that you get the most out of the program!
Shop online. It takes a lot of frequent-flier miles to
pay for the average boarding pass, but there are ways to accumulate them
more quickly. Evreward.com lists online stores, such as Overstock.com
and Netflix.com, that “go the extra mile” and offer bonus miles when you
buy from them.
Choose a partner. Most major
airlines are part of international alliances, and many allow
frequent-flier bookings with other alliance members. When choosing a
frequent-flier program, “consider where you want to fly” and which
alliances have the best rates for traveling there.
the long haul. Carefully pick where you want to fly. It’s best
not to waste your miles on “domestic coach flights.” Instead, be
patient. You might just be able to save enough for an international
first class or business class ticket.
