Half Price LifeMiles Through 08/30

Half Price LifeMiles Through 08/30

-This offer only applies for accounts opened before 08/01.  It does return several times per year so it’s worth opening an account with them for next time.
-You can buy up to 150,000 miles at 1.5 cents per mile.  By entering that you want to buy 75,000 miles you will be credited with 150,000 miles, the maximum allowed.  The cost for 150K would be $2,250.
-Purchase on a card like Chase Sapphire Preferred so that you don’t pay a foreign transaction fee and in order to get the 2.14 points per dollar on travel spending.
-LifeMiles is the Star Alliance program run by Avianca/TACA.  Miles don’t expire as long as there is activity every 24 months. You can book partner travel online and one-way awards are allowed at half the rate of round-trip awards.
-If you are one of the 1,000+ people who have been to one of the DD seminars you’ll (hopefully) already have an account and know some pretty cool stuff to do with it…and that’s all I’m going to say on the matter 😉

    @martin:
    If I’d post the stuff it would be dead within 24 hours.
    What exactly would be the point of that??

    Being a blogger isn’t about just putting every secret online to get more eyeballs, it’s about understanding the responsibility and knowing what deals can survive in the open and what deals will be killed.

    Unless of course the deal will die anyway very shortly which is another story and is why I posted about getting free tickets on any airline vie Southwest/Airtran the day before it died…

    Not every blogger out there subscribes to that credo and they may be happy to kill off deals prematurely but that’s not my goal.

    @Eli:
    At all 4 of the seminars I gave we cleared all standby visitors and even obtained more seating as I posted each time that we would try to do.

    Nobody was turned away.

    there is the advantage of getting the singapore A380 business seats.
    but there is the big disadvantage that you can not mix cabins and that they change their award chart without notice.

    @Dan: @Dan, for those of us who can’t make it to your seminar how can we find out about these benefits without you posting? I.e. how about a pm on the forum or an email?

    @Dan:

    I “understand” you

    But there seems to ppl on forms that manage to get in to every deal and some loyal contributors left out

    And that what’s pushing me to FT even though I love the atmosphere here

    There’s nothing wrong with FT, it’s a great forum. Not really sure why you think you can only enjoy one forum?

    While you’re at it, enjoy the “openness” of threads like this one 😀

    Hi Dan,
    I’m about to get the BA CP, and was wondering what tricks you have up your sleeve to avoid the enormous F.C.
    Thanx

    Fly from Brazil or fly on BA 5th freedom flights.
    And definitely don’t use it in coach.

    Would it be cheaper to fly to Israel purchasing these points or am I just better off buying the tickets via the method you posted about yesterday?

    Any chance you’d want to catch a game at Fenway and give a seminar in Boston while you’re there? Or, perhaps another seminar on the east coast as an alternative to the Chicago and Frequent Flyer seminars?
    And btw, thanks so much for all the info you provide!
