Dansdeals.com-Updated Live From Paradise!

Post stickied: Please scroll down for new posts.

I’m headed off with my beautiful and sweet wife Mimi to Hawaii (via Houston of course-the 3 story President’s Club there is a “must-do!”) where we’ll hit all 4 of its’ major islands (Oahu, then Kauai, Maui, and finally the Big Island) and then come back to Cleveland with stopovers in LA and NYC. (Gotta get the bast bang for the buck out of the mileage tickets!)

Posting may be sporadic for the next month or so, but thanks for hanging in there and keep checking back because it will be updated!

Stay tuned for a report on Continental’s BusinessFirst service to Hawaii

Today Is The Last Day To Sign Up For A LAN Account And Get 5,000 Free Kilometers!!!

Update 2: LAN apparently jumped the gun and took down the 5,000 kilometer bonus this morning.  However thanks to Google’s cache of the old promo page you can still signup under the promo that was supposed to run through today!

Update: The 5,000 Free LAN Kms. promo ends today!!!

They also have a top-of-the-line new business class that requires less than 40,000 Starpoints to get to Brazil (Normally $6,000+)

Even classier is that they don’t charge any ridiculous expedite fees, and they allow free online date changes to LAN award tickets.

“Hi, I’m A Frequent-Flier Addict.”

A fun read about the life of a mileage runner from the front page of the LA Times this past Sunday.

Pity that he spends good time and money to retain elite status on Delta when he could be earning much better status on AA, Continental, or United…

It’s December 31st…Are Your Miles Safe?

From the archives-Originally posted on 12/31/07.

Update: In response to people’s queries: Activity means any earning or spending of miles.

Related posts:
“Save My AA Miles!”
“Help! My (Aeroplan) Miles Are Expiring!”

Continental and Northwest: This may change at any time, but neither of these airlines have ever expired their members’ miles. Kudos to them, and here’s hoping that they retain this (rare for the industry) customer-friendly policy!

AA: You must have account activity at least once in 18 months. If your last account activity was 07/01/06, then you must have activity by 12/31/07 to keep your miles. If your last account activity was 07/16/06, then you must have activity by 01/15/08 to keep your miles.

Delta: You must have account activity at least once in 2 years. A grace period is currently given until the last day of the 2nd year. If your last account activity was 07/01/06, then you must have activity by 12/31/08 to keep your miles. If your last account activity was 12/15/05, then you must have activity by 12/31/07 to keep your miles.

Delta has eliminated the end of year grace period.  Currently if your last account activity was 07/01/06, then you must have activity by 07/31/08 to keep your miles.

United: You must have account activity at least once in 18 months. A grace period is given until the last day of the month after the 18th month. If your last account activity was 07/01/06, then you must have activity by 01/31/08 to keep your miles. If your last account activity was 10/15/06, then you must have activity by 04/30/08 to keep your miles.

Hotel Programs (Hilton, Hyatt, Starwood, etc.): In general most require activity once every 12 months.

Dansdeals.com assumes no responsibility for any erroneous information that may cause the loss of miles. Please do your own research into the expiration policies of each of the mileage programs that you participate in.
