British Airways: Fly From NYC, Atlanta, Boston, Miami, Philadelphia, Or Washington DC To Tel Aviv From Just $1,429 Round-Trip In Business Class, Plus Earn Up To 40K AA Miles Or 45K BA Avios!

Update, 5/26:
This fare is no longer available from NYC or Washington DC. It is available for limited departure dates in July and August from Atlanta, Boston, Baltimore, Miami, and Philadelphia. Most dates that are still left have long layovers in London, though that’s a good excuse to tour the city.
Click on departure dates in Google Flights to help find dates in business class that are priced around $2,000 before the $600 off in discounts via the link and offers below.


American Express is a DansDeals.com advertiser.
-Earn 3 points per dollar on airfare with the AMEX Premier Rewards Gold Card or the AMEX Business Gold Rewards Card.
-Earn 3 Avios per dollar with the Chase British Airways card


Use this BA link for $400 off business class fares. You may need to disable ad-blocker.

Flights from JFK, Newark, Atlanta, Boston, Miami, Philadelphia, Or Washington DC are on sale for about $2,000 round-trip in business class on British Airways via London. That’s $1,600 after $400 off via the link above.

Sale fares are also available from other cities.

Outbound travel from the US is valid on most dates in June, July, and August and you must stay over a Saturday night in Israel. You can return from Tel Aviv anytime from June through April 2017.

Tickets are refundable for 24 hours from the time of booking by calling BA.

If you use a consumer Chase Visa and select flights operated by British Airways you can save another 10% off by using the following promo code on the page after selecting flights: CARDOFFERU

Sample itinerary:

Select promotion code on the page after selecting flights to use the 10% off code:

The sample flights above included travel on a 747 from JFK-London and a 777 from London to Tel Aviv. Both of those planes features lie-flat seating in business class.

If you fly from JFK and credit the flights to American you’ll earn 14,210 AA miles and if you credit the flights to British Airways you’ll earn 17,022 BA Avios.

From Miami you would earn 16,645 AA miles or 19,974 BA Avios.

American is also running a promotion for 25K bonus miles for flights between North America and Europe if you register here and fly by 7/31.

British Airways is running the same promotion and you can register for it here.

As this itinerary includes flights from JFK-London it should trigger that bonus as well, for a total of 39,210 AA miles/42,022 BA Avios from JFK or 41,645 AA miles/44,974 BA Avios from Miami!

If you use 40K AA miles for $600 of award flights (at a conservative value of 1.5 cents each) that’s like paying just $829 for this round-trip business class fare. 40K AA or BA miles are enough for 5 one-way tickets between NYC and short-haul destinations like Boston, Cleveland, Detroit or Montreal that go for just 7.5K miles each. 25K BA Avios is enough for a round-trip from LA to Hawaii and 40K AA miles is enough for a round-trip ticket from NYC to Hawaii.

Has Chase’s 5/24 Rule Gone Into Effect On All Cards?

A few months ago I gave a brief “pre-obituary” for the credit card game and noted new rules that went into effect for AMEX cards and rumored new rules for Chase cards that would go into effect in March and April. Those months passed without incident.

However DDF member Jkhein notes that he applied for a Chase Ink Cash business card on May 22nd and was told by reconsideration that effective for applications made on May 22nd that they could no longer approve an Ink card if you have received 5 cards from any banks in the previous 24 months. He was told that had he applied on May 21st that he would have been approved. Previously the 5/24 rule only applied to the Freedom, Freedom Unlimited, and Sapphire cards. Another member related a similar experience in that thread and DoC notes there that he was told by a source that the rule is now in effect for Ink, Marriott, Southwest, and United cards.

Does that leave the IHG card, Hyatt card, and British Airways card unscathed? Seems unlikely, but anything is possible. Of course it’s also possible that the rule hasn’t gone into effect on the co-branded airline and hotel cards as I’ve yet to hear firsthand reports about those.

Previously, some people have had success overturning a denial with HUCA’ing (Hang up, call again) reconsideration, while others with $10K+ in a Chase checking account or with Private Client status have had luck by asking a banker to fill out a special reconsideration form for them, but we’ll have to wait and see what reports come in with the latest rule.

Like I said in that post, there’s no doubt that this game is on the downward slope of the bell-curve here.

Post your experience with Chase applications made on or after May 22nd in the comments!

Mileage Expiration And Points Transfer Chart For 54 Loyalty Programs, How To Keep Your Points From Expiring, And How To Bring Them Back To Life After They’ve Expired

Update: This post has been updated with the current expiration policies and transfer rates for every transferable mileage currency.


Originally posted on 02/18/15:

Expiration of credit card points:

-Points earned from an airline or hotel credit card, where the points are deposited monthly into your airline/hotel account, are not forfeited by closing the card.  The points are subject to the normal expiration dates listed in the chart below. Some representatives use scare tactics and say that all of your points or tickets will be lost if you cancel the card, but it’s just misinformation.

-Proprietary credit card point programs (American Express Membership Rewards, Barclays Rewards, Citi ThankYou Points, Chase Ultimate Rewards) do not expire as long as you keep at least one card open that is enrolled in their respective program.  Some programs store points individually under each card account, so be sure to transfer points from that card account to another account before cancelling that card. If you do accidentally close a card before moving the points to another card you can try reactivating the card, moving the points over, and cancelling the card once again.

Keeping points alive:

There are a thousands of ways to generate activity to keep points alive.  One easy way is by redeeming a few hundred miles for a magazine subscription. Redeeming miles is safer than the various methods of earning miles as point earnings don’t always post and it can turn into a fight in case your account expires. But as with everything else in life when you’re paying for something you can be sure that it will always post without any fighting required :D

There are actually get some pretty sweet deals, like The Economist for 3,200 miles. Delta miles don’t require activity, but still 3,200 Delta “Skypesos” for a year of The Economist isn’t bad at all!

MagsForMiles offers redemption options for Alaska, American, Delta, Frontier, Hawaiian, Spirit, and United
-Newspaper Rewards offers newspaper redemption options for Alaska, American, Delta, Hawaiian, JetBlue, and United
-Points.com Alaska Magazine Offers
-Points.com American Magazine Offers
-Points.com Delta Magazine Offers
-Points.com JetBlue Magazine Offers
-MagazineRewards United Magazines Offers

United’s MileagePlus X app allows you to earn miles when buying gift cards and it also a good way to renew miles.

Just having a Chase United Explorer card miles United miles never expire for as long you remain a cardholder.

If you have transferable points you can move points from AMEX, Chase, Citi, or Starwood to an airline to keep your entire account alive.  Note that some airlines (like American) require the name on the Starwood account to match the name on the American account.  You can transfer Starpoints to anyone living at the same address and from there transfer points to an airline.  If your Starpoints themselves are expiring, all you need to do is make a simple transfer from you to your spouse or someone else living at your address and that counts as activity that will keep both of your accounts alive for another 18 months.

Some people have also had success booking an award flight to hotel stay to extend the validity of their points and then cancelling it after the points have been deducted. Others have said that it’s not a foolproof system and the old expiration may still be in force.

Personally I booked an IHG points stay and then cancelled it and it did extend the points expiration date for another 12 months.

Note that cancellation policies vary by airline.  American doesn’t allow free cancellations on awards even within 24 hours. United allows 24 hours to cancel for free. British Airways only charges the lessor of taxes of $55 after 24 hours, so a one-way domestic flight cancellation after 24 hours would only cost you $5.60.

 

Reactivating expired miles:

I have saved the miles of family members and close friends by crediting past car rentals towards their airline mileage accounts.  Most car rentals earn a nominal amount of airline miles, but you can call the car rental company to credit anyone’s airline mileage account up to a year after the car rental.  If someone lost their miles 6 months ago you would have to locate a car rental from more than 6 months ago, but less than 12 months ago.  Shortly after the miles post to their account it should automatically reactivate all of their miles retroactively to the date of the car rental.  Just don’t forget to add new activity to prevent that from happening again!

There’s even a market for old car rental credits on DDF.

The same process would work for past hotel stays or other activities that can be credited towards airline miles.

Some airlines, like British Airways, will actually reinstate miles for free and give you 3 additional months to use or redeem some miles to keep your account alive for another 3 years.

Other airlines like United and American will charge to reactivate miles, but those are often worthwhile if you don’t have any other avenues. American also has a unique challenge that I wrote about over 5 years ago that allows you to reactivate miles by completing tasks like opening a credit card or flying on a paid AA flight. Since then they’ve added a small fee to take that challenge, but it should be much cheaper than paying to reactivate the miles outright.

There Are Now 3 Airlines That Accept Points From All 4 Major Transferable Point Currencies; Can You Name Them Without Peeking?

There are 4 major transferable point currencies, AMEX, Chase, Citi, and Starwood. The great thing about having points in those currencies is that they are a hedge against devaluations. When you have points in most airline or hotel programs they can’t be transferred anywhere else at a decent ratio, so if those programs devalue, your banked points are worth less. With a transferable point currency though you can always transfer to another program that hasn’t devalued.

When used properly, the value of your points can easily exceed 5 cents each, and when you’re earning up to 5 points per dollar that makes things quite lucrative.

Of course not all transferable point currencies were created equally. Starwood’s is the most valuable due to the 25% bonus for transferring in blocks of 20K points and for their vast selection of transfer partners, however Starwood transfers can take anywhere from 1-8 days, so that hinders their value somewhat. Chase points are the next most valuable due to the ability to transfer instantly to prized programs like United and Hyatt at a 1:1 ratio. AMEX points are next in line with transfers to programs like Air Canada, ANA, Cathay Pacific, El Al, and Singapore, while Citi points are the least valuable of the bunch.

It’s great when an airline partners with multiple programs as that allows more opportunities to earn points and consolidate them in one place.

This weekend Chase added Air France/KLM Flying Blue as a new instant transfer option. You can now transfer points from all 4 transferable point currencies to Flying Blue, though typically you would want to use AMEX or Citi points rather than Chase points.

It’s not my favorite program as the only way to avoid fuel surcharges is to fly on Skyteam partner Delta, and they are notoriously stingy with saver award space. Flying Blue also expire points after just 20 months and they can’t be renewed unless you credit a paid Skyteam flight to Flying Blue.

However there are several sweet spots including round-trip travel from the US to the Caribbean for 25K, Hawaii for 25K-30K, and Europe or South America for 50K. However the trick is finding award space on Delta.

The best part of the program is that it includes Tel Aviv as part of Europe. However while United has wide open saver availability to Israel, you’d be hard pressed to find that space on Flying Blue’s Skyteam partner, Delta.

That leaves travel on airlines with fuel surcharges, though those surcharges have come way down and award space is quite generous.

One-way travel:

Round-trip travel:

af

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The best part of the program though are the Promo Awards that allow for travel to Israel for as little as 12.5K miles each way. However those have gotten rarer of late.

The other 2 programs that allow transfers from all 4 point currencies?

The excellent Singapore Krisflyer program, which has real bargains without fuel surcharges for traveling on United. And Virgin Atlantic, which currently has a promotion for transfers from AMEX, and would also be an ill-advised use of Chase points.

Buy $300 In Visa Gift Cards From Staples This Week And Get A Free $20 Visa Gift Card Via Easy Rebate

If you buy $300+ in Visa gift cards from Staples between 5/22 and 5/28 you can send in an Easy Rebate online to get a bonus $20 Visa gift card.

This is valid in-store only. Officially there is a limit of 1 rebate per household.

If you buy 2 $200 Visa gift card in store you’ll pay $13.90 in card fees. (A $200 gift card and a $100 gift card would have $12.90 in fees).

That’s 2,070 points for a $413.90 purchase. Plus you’ll get the $20 Visa card via Easy Rebate.

While Staples.com now carries $300 gift cards, I haven’t seen any reports of the $300 cards being found in stores yet.

Use your Chase Ink Plus or Chase Ink Cash card and get 5 points per dollar spent.

You can use the last 4 digits of the Visa cards numbers as the PIN for debit transactions.

Even without the rebate, the argument can be made to buy gift cards from Staples for your everyday spending.

Say you spend $2,000 on everyday spend. On a typical card earning points or cash back worth 2% you would save $40.

If you bought $2,000 in Visa gift cards for $2,069.50 you’ll earn 10,348 points that are worth $181.09 at a 1.75 cents per point value. After backing out the $69.50 it cost to buy those gift cards you’ll still left with a $111.59 profit, or about triple the rewards you would earn from other cards. It’s an effective rebate of 5.58% everywhere you shop.

Even if you only value the points at 1.6 cents each that would value the 10,348 points at $165.57, leaving a profit of $96.07 or an effective rebate of 4.8% everywhere.

Use the gift card for everyday purchases, donate it to a charity and get a receipt for the full value, give it as a wedding present, or cash it out via money order, bill pay, or other methods by using the last 4 digits of the card number as the PIN.

Discover Now Offering Free FICO Score Access To Everyone

There are lots of services out there that give free credit scores, but they all simulate scores based on their own models. These are called FAKO scores that aren’t going to be used in a credit approval decision. A FAKO score can be significantly different than your FICO score, discrepancies of more than 100 points aren’t uncommon.

Discover is launching Credit Scorecard and it gives a real Experian 8 FICO score. It does not hurt your score if you check your own score. You don’t need a Discover card to join and check your FICO score for free.

AMEX also gives Experian 8 FICO scores to their cardholders and indeed it was an exact match:

ax

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Interestingly if you have a Discover credit card they provide you with another FICO score, the Transunion 8:

Barclays also provides a Transunion 8 FICO score to its cardholders, it was taken a day later and was 1 points higher than the score Discover gave:

barclays

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Other programs that you signup for aren’t giving you a real FICO score.

You can keep tabs on all 3 of your reports with annualcreditreport.com, the only government sanctioned credit report site. If there are mistakes there be sure to dispute them! If there are hard pulls that shouldn’t be there, if there are duplicate hard pulls, or if there are pulls older than 24 months old you should dispute those as well. Unfortunately that site only shows your report, it does not give you a credit score.

One trick to get your score higher is to pay off what you spend, besides for a buck or 2, before your monthly statement prints. Once your statement is generated even if you pay it off on time you will lose up to 30% of your score depending on how much you owe that month. You can call your credit card bank to have all your card’s statements print on the same day of the month to keeps things organized.

If you can’t swing that, then try spending on a business card where the spending doesn’t affect your personal credit score. Some other tips can be found in this post from the DD archives.
