-Chase Freedom is probably the best no annual fee consumer card that exists. It’s an easy card to get approved for and for a limited time only it comes with a 20,000 point signup bonus instead of the normal 10,000 point bonus. (It says $200 but really it’s 20K points that can be transferred into much more valuable airline miles or hotel points if you or your spouse also has a Sapphire PreferredInk Plus, or Ink Bold card, or if you get one in the future) The bonus on this fee-free card hasn’t been this high in years and it will end very soon!

-If you already have a Chase Freedom card open up a Chase checking account by 12/31 to get a 10% bonus on all points earned from the card!

-Philadelphia to/from Dallas nonstop for $93.80 round-trip on USAirways (2,605 miles)

BA/MR Promo Offer Linky

-Through 12/31/13 you will get 1,200 Avios for every 1,000 Membership Rewards (MR) Points transferred to BA.

This isn’t as good as part transfer bonuses that we’ve seen in the past.  If you anticipate the need for Avios in the near-term then go ahead and transfer but there should be a better offer available in the first half of 2014.
Previous MR->Avios bonus offers:
11/27/11=30%
03/15/12=50%
08/28/12=40%
12/03/12=30%
04/22/13=35%
10/15/13=20%

-There are no fuel surcharges for travel on American Airlines within the Western Hemisphere,  There are also no fuel surcharges for flying on Aer Lingus, Air Berlin, Alaska, or LAN worldwide.

-There are no expedite or close-in fees for last minute award ticket bookings with BA Avios.

-You can book one-way tickets for half of the miles listed below!

-Earning or redeeming any amount of Avios extends your entire account validity for another 36 months.

-You can cancel tickets and redeposit miles for the lessor of $40 or the taxes you paid.  That means you pay just $2.50 for cancel a one-way domestic itinerary (and it’s why I always book cheap domestic flights as one-ways)

-British Airways only charges 10% extra miles for a lap child flying internationally, even when traveling on AA. AA and other domestic carriers charge a whopping 10% of the full fare, which can add up to be a small fortune.

-You can transfer points from an American Express Membership Rewards account to anyone’s British Airways account, names don’t have to match.

-Points transfer instantly from MR to BA and there are no fees or taxes for transferring points to British Airways.

-British Airways charges double miles for business class and triple miles for first class. Beware that on AA’s domestic 2 class planes they charge first class rates for what is really just a poor excuse for business class.

-You can search AA and Alaska award availability on AA.com and looking for sAAver awards. BA can’t book AAnytime awards, but you should be able to find all AA sAAver awards on BA.com. BA.com does not display all available awards on all airlines, airlines like Alaska, Aer Lingus, and LAN have to be booked over the phone.  Additionally you will have to call BA to make a booking if you see a sAAver award on AA.com that’s not showing on BA.com.

Sample uses:

-8,000 MR points will transfer into 9,600 Avios, more than enough for a 9K round-trip short-haul ticket between New York and places like Boston, Cleveland, Detroit, Montreal, or Toronto or between Miami and the Bahamas, on OneWorld partner American.

-13,000 MR points becomes 15,600 Avios, more than enough for a 15K round-trip flight between New York and Chicago or Florida or from LA to Cabo.

-17,000 MR points becomes 20,400 Avios, more than enough for a 20K round-trip flight between Chicago and LA.

-21,000 MR points becomes 25,200 Avios, more than enough for a 25K round-trip flight between the west coast and any of the Hawaiian islands, New York and the west coast, or New York and Costa Rica. It’s even enough for a round-trip flight between Boston and Dublin or Shannon, Ireland with no fuel surcharges on Aer Lingus! You’ll have to call to book trips on airlines like Aer Lingus or Alaska.

-34,000 MR points becomes 40,800 Avios, more than enough for a 40K round-trip flight between Dallas and Hawaii or New York and London (though you’ll be hit with fuel surcharges for crossing the Atlantic on most airlines). It’s also enough for a round-trip flight between NYC or Chicago and Dublin or Shannon, Ireland with no fuel surcharges on Aer Lingus.

-42,000 MR points becomes 50,400 Avios, more than enough for a 50K round-trip flight between New York and Brazil or Argentina with no fuel surcharges.  It’s also more than enough for a round-trip in a lie-flat business class seat between JFK and Vancouver on Cathay Pacific.

-50,000 MR points becomes 60,000 Avios, enough for a 60K round-trip flight between New York and Tel Aviv on Air Berlin with no fuel surcharges.

Delta Aftermath Part 2: Where Are You Going?

Did you get in on the Delta fun this past Thursday and get confirmed tickets?

I thought it might be fun for people to share what their loot was:
-Where are you flying to and from?
-Are you flying coach or business/first class?
-How many people are traveling?
-What did you pay?
-When are you going?
You can even include where you plan on staying or ask for suggestions on where to stay.  When there was free airfare to the Bahamas with free hotel accommodation there were even minyanim that were organized there 😀

Post a comment and let’s hear about your plans!

I’d love to read trip reports from folks after their trips as well.  If you would like to share your experience post it in this DDF thread when you get back!

Rules Of The Deal

Reposing this article that I wrote a month ago after the United glitch. Since then it seems that even the Wall Street Journal has started monitoring my Twitter feed (1:00-1:05 in the video) :

wsj

 

Price mistakes happen a few times a year. Some of my favorites that I’ve blogged about besides for yesterday’s Detla bonanza:
-Last month there were $127 tickets to Milan and $287 tickets to Israel on United.
-My first time in Hawaii was with airfare and hotel for $87 with tax.
-I and thousands of others scored Airfare and 5 star accommodations at hotels like the Bellagio with Cirque tickets in Las Vegas all for free thanks to Expedia.
-Tons of people were able to get free airfare and hotels in the Bahamas.
-My whole family has lifetime free stays in suites at Fairmont hotels.
-There have been $250 tickets to anywhere in Europe.
$336 El Al tickets to Israel for Pesach
-Dirt cheap tickets to anywhere when booked via LAN.
-$460 USAirways tickets to Israel from NYC.
-$347 USAirways tickets to Israel from other US cities.
-$550 nonstop Delta tickets from JFK to Israel along with $372 Delta tickets from Los Angeles to Israel and $498 Delta tickets from Newark to Israel.
-$376 Alitalia tickets to Israel.
-Lucky people had their WalMart price mistake orders honored
-HP even gave out $200 coupons to people who got in a price mistake…perhaps they didn’t realize the coupon was able to be used multiple times though.

Of course the fine line between price mistake and deal is often blurred.
In the past I stocked up on dozens of cases of free diapers and wipes thanks to Amazon. My wife and I have stayed at the Encore and Wynn just for having an American Express Platinum card. We flew to Aruba and Boston last year for free thanks to Jetblue’s voucher generosity in May as well as in September again. I racked up countless free Hyatt nights and hundreds of thousands of United miles with promotions like this one.
Years of churning dollar coins minted me hundreds of thousands of miles as well. Even some simple soda cups earned me tens of thousands of dollars of free United flight vouchers.
None of those were mistakes, it’s not always easy to tell what’s a mistake and what’s just an incredible deal.

Rules Of The Deal:

1. Don’t call.
Don’t talk to the airline or companies offering a deal while the deal is live. You can always ask questions once the deal is gone.

2. Don’t hesitate.
These deals never last long, you’ve got to act fast.
Most online booking agencies have generous cancellation policies, so book first and then decide later.

With some really crazy deals like 4 mile island some DDFers flew in first class around the world for just 4 miles because they booked to travel immediately.

3. Don’t forget your infant!
A common theme that I’ve seen with price mistakes is that people forget their infant children. You need to pay 10% of the normal fare for the privilege of holding your child on international tickets. Wouldn’t you be better off spending the few extra dollars for them to have their own seat?

4. Follow @DansDeals on Twitter.
I’ve gotten tons of complains from my email subscribers about missing the deal.  Unfortunately the emails just go out once a day.  If you want real time alerts you’ll want to follow @DansDeals on twitter and have Twitter send you a text message whenever a new deal is posted.  Once you’re signed up you never have to go onto Twitter again if you don’t want to.

5. Join DDF
The United deal last month was posted by Drago on the DansDeals Forums wayyy before it was posted on the main DansDeals site as I was offline for shabbos while Israel based DDF members got a big jump start.

6. Create your own free trip!
Don’t want to wait around for the next great deal to arrive?  The credit card companies are happy to fly you for free anywhere in the world, even in business or first class.  I’ve flown around the world countless times in private first class suites with miles earned from opening credit cards.  You can read some of those trip reports here.  I’ve banked 8 figures of miles and points by doing this stuff over the years and that means I don’t have to worry about being under pressure to book during a quick glitch, I travel free on my own terms.  And I still have a top-notch 800+ FICO score.

This page includes links for tons of great credit cards that will have you flying for free in no time!

There’s more information about applying for cards in this DDF FAQ page also with many credit card deals and links to dozens of others useful threads in this DDF credit card starting point thread.

You can also learn more about my favorite hobby by clicking on the credit card posts tab and the mileage posts tab.

Posts like this one on opening and closing cards and this one on getting business cards to improve your credit score are helpful as well.

Chase Freedom Reminders And News

Update:
-If you want to get in the limited time Freedom offer with double the normal signup bonus then you should do that soon…
-Plus don’t forget that you have less than a week left to get 5 or 5.5 points per dollar in this quarter’s rotating categories.
-There’s also less than a week to open a Chase checking account to get the 10% bonus on top of 2013 earnings.
-You can also now register for 2014 Q1 5x  categories!

—————————————————-
Originally posted on 12/03:

Chase Freedom is probably the best no annual fee consumer card that exists.  It’s a easy card to get approved for and for a limited time only it comes with a 20,000 point signup bonus instead of the normal 10,000 point bonus.

2 things make the card so lucrative:
-Every quarter you can earn 5 points per dollar on up to $1,500 in quarterly spending in rotating categories.  Currently that includes department stores as well as Amazon.com. That’s up to 30,000 points per year.
-If you have a Chase checking account you will get a 10% bonus on top of all points earned during the previous year. That means you’ll earn 1.1 points per dollar everywhere and 5.5 points per dollar in the rotating categories.  That bumps the bonus category earnings to 33,000 points per year.

Those points can be cashed out for a penny a piece though that’s borderline criminal as the points can be worth so much more when transferred to miles.  If you or your spouse has or will get a Sapphire PreferredInk Plus, or Ink Bold card in the future you can transfer Freedom points over to one of those cards and then transfer them at a 1:1 ratio into much more valuable airline miles (United, British Airways, Southwest, Korean, or Virgin America), hotel points (Hyatt, Hilton, Marriott, Priority Club), or Amtrak points.  You can read more about the Chase Trifecta and why miles are better than cash back in this post.

At any rate:

1. You must register for the Q4 category bonus by 12/14 and complete spending by 12/31.  Registering now will retroactively credit you for any bonus category purchases made since October.

2. The bonus category list for 2014 will be:
Q1: Gas stations, Movie theaters, Starbucks (Activate starting 12/15)
Q2: Restaurants and Lowe’s (Activate starting 03/15)
Q3: Gas stations and Kohl’s (Activate starting 06/15)
Q4: Amazon.com, Zappos.com, and Department stores (Activate starting 09/15)
With $6,000 of spending that’s 30K points or 33K points with a Chase checking account.

There are 2 quarters with gas stations and that includes items bought in gas station stores as well.  Last time I maximized that by buying One Vanilla gift cards at 7-Eleven on my Freedom cards.  Most 7/11s are categorized as gas stations, you can confirm each one on the Visa merchant categorization site. Then I went next door to Walmart to load them onto Bluebird cards using the last 4 digits of the card as the pin number without even needing to register the card. You can read more about Bluebird in this post.

That’s 8,250 points (per Freedom card) for $14.85 in total fees or 0.18 cents per point. In more practical terms that’s like buying a nonstop one-way business class ticket to Israel on United for $108 or a one-way short-haul flight on American for $8.10.

Lowe’s also sells gift cards to other stores and gas stations.  And your favorite restaurant will always be happy to lock in your money as well.

Department stores like Sears also sell gift cards to other stores.  You effectively you can spend all $6,000 on gift cards to other stores.

Of course if you have an Ink Plus, Ink Bold, or Ink Cash card you will earn 5 Ultimate Rewards points per dollar spent all year round on telecom, cable, internet, as well as everything from office supply stores, which includes gift cards to other stores and prepaid cash cards that can be used anywhere. With the Bold/Plus cards that’s capped at $50,000 per year and with the Cash card that’s capped at $25,000 per year. The cards also earn 2 points per dollar year-round at gas stations and either hotels (Bold/Plus) or dining (Cash).  More about Ink benefits and how you can get an Ink card in this post.

3. As long as you have an open Chase Freedom and Chase checking account on 12/31 you will get the 10% bonus for everything in 2013.  Now is the time to open those accounts if you don’t have one yet!

Finally it will end with some trivia questions with prizes as well as a Q&A session.  See the seminar link for the schedule (subject to change).

Seating is limited so book your ticket first and then tell your friends 😀
All 5 seminars that I have run so far (Crown Heights, NY. Boro Park, NY. Lakewood, NJ, Chicago, and Cleveland) have sold out so don’t procrastinate!

Join El Al Matmid For Free

Getting To Israel Using Miles
———————————————–
El Al has a fairly terrible frequent flyer program (which is why I’m not a fan of the HAS credit card for example).

Points from flights expire after 3 years, redemption rates are poor, availability can be very tough, partner award options are close to nil, the point system is confusing, and they charge a fuel surcharge (about $350 in total fees for North America-Tel Aviv) on redemptions to boot.

Adding insult to injury: They also charge $25 to join the program.

Apply for Matmid here though and use the following code to have the $25 fee waived: AOW24483828

You can also join for free via the AMEX Membership Rewards portal.

Why do you want to join if the program is so terrible, you ask?

First of all, they do run promotions that can be very good.

Currently there is a cash and points promo to fly for about $860 plus 50 points.

And you can get half off coach awards right now, so it’s just 700 points+$350 for a round-trip flight. 35,000 AMEX points transfer into 700 El Al points.

Second of all, if you are a member you will be able to check award availability online. You can use American miles to book El Al flights, but that must be done by calling AA. Best of all AA allows you to even book one-way awards on El Al AND they don’t charge a fuel surcharge for redeeming miles to fly on El Al!

I know someone is going to ask this, so I’ll preempt them, no you can’t use British Airways Avios to travel on El Al. Period, end of story.

Bear in mind that AA can only book coach and business seats on El Al.  If you want to fly in First Class you will need 5,000 Matmid points+$350.  You’ll have to transfer 250,000 American Express Membership Rewards points into 5,000 Matmid points.  A terrible value compared to other lie-flat options on other airlines but on the upside El Al First Class award availability is generally very good and it’s the best kosher food in the sky (aside from having a flight attendant heat up a double wrapped meal from a place like Pomegranate).

Need AA miles?
You can signup for an AA credit card but you will do better spending money on the Starwood card as you can always transfer 20,000 Starwood points for 25,000 AA miles, so that 25% more bang for your buck. The Starwood AMEX gives 25,000 bonus Starpoints for spending $5,000 in 6 months. Plus AMEX runs simply incredible promotions year round that easily make up for the $65 annual fee (which is waived the first year anyway) and they have top-notch return and warranty protections.

Here is a link to the AA partner award chart.

You can fly from North America to Tel Aviv nonstop on El Al for 45K each way in coach or 67.5K each way in business.

Or if you fly via Europe between October and May it’s just 40K each way, for example an American flight to Paris and then an El Al flight to Tel Aviv would be 40K off-peak.  And you can stopover in Europe for as long as you want.

On top of that American also allows for free one-ways with a stopover even on a one-way flight. A one-way flight nonstop from Tel Aviv to JFK, stopping over in NYC for as long as you want, and then a flight from JFK to Alaska, Hawaii, LA, Miami, etc. is just 45,000 miles.  The travel date of the “trailing” flight can even be changed for free.

The reverse works as well.  Fly back from Hawaii to JFK, stopover in NYC for as long as you want, and then fly nonstop from JFK to Tel Aviv for just 45,000 miles.

More on that kind of fun stuff in my seminar in LA tonight 🙂
