The Best Airline Credit Card Offers

-Find more credit card offers by clicking on the “Credit Cards” tab on top of the DansDeals banner at the top of this site or on the Forum FAQ thread and Wiki.
—————————————————————————–
I’m generally not a fan of spending on airline cards as you can earn more miles on other cards that allow you to transfer their points to various airline programs.  But airline cards can still be worth obtaining as I’ll illustrate below.

In no particular order, here is my take on several airline credit cards:

-Gold Delta SkyMiles® Credit Card from American Express
Signup Bonus: 30,000 miles and a $50 statement credit for spending $1,000 in 3 months.
Annual Fee: $0 for the first year, then $95.
Top benefits:
-First checked bag free for you and 8 companions
-Priority boarding so you’ll have overhead space for your carry-ons
-Annual $99 companion certificate
-20% rebate on in-flight food, drink, headphone, TV, and movie discounts
-Double miles for spending on Delta.
Caveat: You’ll earn 25% more Delta miles by doing your regular spending on the Starwood Preferred Guest® Credit Card from American Express. There are also several cards that give more than 2 miles per dollar on airfare purchases such as 3 points per dollar on the American Express® Premier Rewards Gold Card or 2.14 points per dollar with Chase Sapphire Preferred.
————————————————————————-

-Chase United Explorer Visa Signature
Signup Bonus: 30,000 miles for spending $1,000 in 3 months plus 5,000 miles for adding a free additional user card for a total of 35,000 miles.
Sample use for the bonus miles: 35K miles is enough for a round-trip between the US48 and places like Panama, Costa Rica, or Curacao, home to a 1650’s built synagogue that is the oldest in continuous use in the Western Hemisphere. You can get a free stopover as well.
Annual Fee: $0 for the first year, then $95.
Top benefits:
-10,000 mile bonus for spending $25K in a year-effectively a very respectable 1.4 miles per dollar spent everywhere if you can get to $25K.
-Expanded saver award availability (Just booked a flight for my brother 3 days ago from LAX to CLE that he’s currently flying on right now with this expanded saver 12.5K award availability that otherwise would have cost 25K without the credit card attached to the United account).
-As long as there’s a seat on the plane you’ll be able to use a standard award (typically double miles) for it. This level is capacity controlled for general members.
-Primary CDW car rental insurance worldwide except in Israel, Ireland, and Jamaica (most cards only give coverage secondary to your personal auto insurance which would cause your rates to go up).
-First checked bag free for you and a companion
-Priority boarding so you’ll have overhead space for your carry-ons.
-No foreign transaction/exchange fees
-Premier members become eligible for upgrades on domestic award tickets by having this card.
-2 transferable United Club passes annually
-Double miles for United ticket purchases
-Miles will never expire if you are a cardholder.
Other card versions: You can access the business card by clicking on “Are you a business owner” in the top-right of the United Explorer card link which also gives double miles at restaurants, gas stations, and office supply stores.
You can access the club card by clicking on the Club Card tab at the top of the United Explorer card link which gives 1.5 miles per dollar spent everywhere, 2 free checked bags, a full United Club and partner club membership, Hyatt Platinum elite status, and waived award close-in expedite fees.
Caveat: You can earn more United miles thanks to bonus points on regular spending and lucrative 2x, 3x, and 5x bonus categories found on other Chase cards like Chase Freedom, Chase Sapphire Preferred, Chase Ink Bold, Chase Ink Plus, or Chase Ink Cash.

————————————————————————-

The US Airways® Premier World MasterCard®
Signup Bonus:: 40,000 miles for spending $1.
Sample use for the bonus miles: 30K miles is enough for a round-trip between the US and Europe or South America during off-peak times when flying on USAirways with the 5K cardholder award discount.
Alternate link: 35K for spending $1.
Annual Fee: $89.
Top benefits:
-5,000 mile discount for USAirways non-partner awards
-Annual companion certificate good for up to 2 companion tickets at $99 each plus taxes and fees
-2 miles per $1 on US Airways purchases
-First class check-in
-One non-transferable US Airways Club pass.
Caveat: You’ll earn 25% more USAirways miles by doing your regular spending on the Starwood Preferred Guest® Credit Card from American Express instead of on this card. There are also several cards that give more than 2 miles per dollar on airfare purchases such as 3 points per dollar on the American Express® Premier Rewards Gold Card or 2.14 points per dollar with Chase Sapphire Preferred.
————————————————————————-

Premier Miles & More® World MasterCard®
Sample use for the bonus miles: 24K miles is enough for a round-trip domestic ticket when booked as 2 one-ways, 34K miles is enough for a round-trip domestic business class or first class on a 2 class plan on partners United or USAirways with no fuel surcharges when booked as 2 one-ways. 50K miles is enough for domestic first class on a 3 class plane. 52K is enough for a one-way business class ticket to Europe which can be had with expanded availability on Lot Polish’s awesome new 787 lie-flat business or in a USAirways Envoy suite with no fuel surcharges. The only way to fly in Swiss’ top-notch first class cabin is with these Miles & More miles. Coach to Israel is 40K each way with no fuel surcharge on USAirways.
Annual Fee: $79.
Caveat: You’ll earn 25% more Lufthansa miles by doing your regular spending on the Starwood Preferred Guest® Credit Card from American Express instead of on this card. There are also several cards that give more than 2 miles per dollar on airfare purchases such as 3 points per dollar on the American Express® Premier Rewards Gold Card or 2.14 points per dollar with Chase Sapphire Preferred.
————————————————————————-

-Chase British Airways Visa
Signup Bonus: 50,000 Avios for spending $1,000 in 3 months.
Sample use for the bonus miles: 50K Avios is enough for more than 11 free one-way short-haul award tickets with no fuel surcharges on partner airlines like American. It’s also enough for 2 round-trips between the west coast and Hawaii on American or Alaska. 50K can also buy 2 round-trip tickets between Boston and Ireland with no fuel surcharges. 60K get a round-trip to Israel with no fuel surcharges.
You can also fly one-way nonstop between JFK and Vancouver for 12.5K Avios for coach, 25K for lie-flat business suites, or 37.5K for Cathay Pacific’s top in the industry First Class with designer PJs.
Annual Fee: $95.
Top benefits:
-No foreign transaction/exchange fees
-BA does not charge any close-in/expedite fees and charges just the taxes ($2.50 on a domestic one-way but a max of just $40 worldwide) to cancel a ticket and redeposit the miles.
-Every year that you spend $30,000 you will earn a Travel Together Ticket for a free companion ticket in any class of service when you redeem for a British Airways flight though fuel surcharges are extra.
Caveat: You can earn more BA Avios thanks to lucrative 2x, 3x, and 5x bonus categories found on other Chase cards like Chase Freedom, Chase Sapphire Preferred, Chase Ink Bold, Chase Ink Plus, or Chase Ink Cash.. American Express Membership Rewards cards like The Platinum Card® from American Express and the American Express® Premier Rewards Gold Card also offer transfer bonuses that can reach as high as 50% for transfers to British Airways.

NYC To Or From Israel Nonstop For Just $868.97 Round Trip With Tax

-Bookable on Priceline (with regular mileage earning and free cancellations until 11:30pm ET the day after you book, on Orbitz (with regular mileage earning and free cancellations until 10pm CT the day after you book, or direct from the airline.

– Earn 3 points per dollar with American Express® Premier Rewards Gold Card, 3 points per dollar with The Business Gold Rewards Card® from American Express OPEN, or 2.14 points per dollar with Chase Sapphire Preferred.
————————————————————————————————–

The $868.97 fare is valid for departures on select dates between 10/20/13-12/15/13 and 12/25/13-03/15/14.
It should be bookable from now through 06/30/13.

Currently the fare is only available on Delta but tomorrow it will also be bookable on El Al and United.  More travel dates on sale will be available tomorrow when the El Al and United fares are loaded.

There will be a $1,068.97 fare nonstop from Los Angeles to Tel Aviv on El Al as well that will be bookable tomorrow.

You will earn full miles with all of those carriers but bear in mind that:
-Delta miles are worth the least of the major airlines and rumor has it that they will be making them worth even less as they shift to a revenue based program. Delta has one flight a day between JFK and Tel Aviv at night and it’s on an older though renovated 747.
-El Al Matmid points are terrible and expire but you can earn full American miles for your El Al flight by giving them your AAdvantage number. El Al flies from both JFK and Newark several times a day.
-United miles are the most valuable. They fly twice a day between Newark and Tel Aviv and their 777s are the newest aircraft that services the market.

Get A 35% Bonus When You Transfer American Express Membership Rewards Points Into British Airways Avios!

Update: This promotion will end today.  We will likely see another BA transfer promotion before the end of the year which can range from 20%-50%.  If you will use the Avios within the next several months you should definitely transfer them now but otherwise it’s probably best to hold off.

BA/MR Promo Offer Linky

-Through 06/07/13 you will get 1,350 Avios for every 1,000 Membership Rewards (MR) Points transferred to BA.

-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!

-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.

-You can borrow points by calling up Membership Rewards (800-AXP-EARN) and asking for a points advance. You then have up to 1 year to earn those points from signup bonuses or spending or else they will charge you 2.5 cents per point.

-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 and Aer Lingus can only 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:

-7,000 MR points will transfer into 9,450 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.

-12,000 MR points becomes 16,200 Avios, more than enough for a 15K round-trip flight between New York and Chicago or Florida or from LA to Cabo.

-15,000 MR points becomes 20,250 Avios, more than enough for a 20K round-trip flight between Chicago and LA.

-19,000 MR points becomes 25,650 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.

-30,000 MR points becomes 40,500 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.

-38,000 MR points becomes 51,300 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.

-45,000 MR points becomes 60,750 Avios, more than enough for a 60K round-trip flight between New York and Tel Aviv on Air Berlin with no fuel surcharges.

“Hacking” A Newark To Tel Aviv Nonstop For $845.97 Round-Trip…

Update: Price drop to $845.97 via this method.

——————————————————————-

There are currently flights from Chicago, Houston, or Washington DC to Tel Aviv from November-March for under $650 on United and other airlines.

If you’re creative though you can manufacture a cheaper ticket, though the airlines may not like it and they may punish people who abuse hidden city ticketing repeatedly, so don’t do this every month.

You can use the Travelocity multi-destination search page and search for NYC-TLV in flight #1 (sample date 01/21/14) and then TLV-IAH, TLV-ORD, or TLV-WAS (sample date 01/28/14).

You can choose a nonstop on United from Newark to Tel Aviv. For the return  you can select a United flight from Tel Aviv to Chicago, Houston, or Washington DC that connects in Newark. Your bags will be tagged to Chicago, Houston, or Washington DC but everyone, whether their destination is NYC or anywhere else in the world, must pickup their luggage in Newark on the return and bring it through customs. At that point you can either recheck your bags or just leave the airport.

ord

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In the red square is a flight that nobody is going to force you to board.

The price using this “hack” is $845.97, more than $200 off the regular nonstop fare. Now the price for Chicago, Houston, or Washington DC to Tel Aviv via NYC is another $210 less than that, but this allows you to fly nonstop both ways and realize part of that fare differential without flying to another city to start the trip.

Of course you can always just fly to DC for 4,500 Avios or Chicago for 7,500 Avios to save yourself another $210 per person.

Or you can just go to Chicago, enjoy a fantastic dinner at Shallot’s Bistro or Milt’s BBQ and then use 7,500 Avios to fly back to NYC.

Of course this will work for dozens of other dates as well. The key to finding valid dates is searching for cheap flights from Chicago, Houston, or Washington DC to Tel Aviv with flexible dates. The outbound flight date doesn’t need to be cheap but the return flight date does need to be on a cheap date. Once you find a cheap return date just use the Travelocity multi-destination search and plugin any outbound date and any of the cheap return dates to Chicago or Houston. Read about using ITA Software here and use the following advanced routing code to limit the calendar search to United flights that connect in Newark: UA, UA

What’s On Your Mind Chicago?

Update #3: 200 seats booked and we are sold out!

Update #2: The organizer and I have decided to increase the ticket sales to 200 to allow for some probable no-shows.  There are now 15 seats for sale-go grab ’em!

Update: 1 person has cancelled, you can grab his seat via the link! Gone!

———————————————————

I’m excited to head out to the Windy City this week and give a DansDeals seminar this Thursday evening with the full ticket price going directly to benefit The Kehillah Jewish Education Fund, a local charity that is organizing the event.

The 185 seats sold out in just two days!

The Blackhawks apparently didn’t get the memo though and scheduled their 4th Conference Finals game during the seminar.  If you would like to cancel your ticket so that it can be resold to someone else just send an email to me (dan at dansdeals.com) and I’ll get it sorted out.

Have a question or topic you would like for me to cover or answer during the seminar?

I won’t be able to answer everyone’s questions at the seminar, but if you want your voice heard just head onto Twitter and use the hashtag #AskDD

For example you can tweet,

Would love to know which card is the best to start with for a beginner? #AskDD

AJ Madison Responds…

Care to share your side of the story?

Why are you guys not honoring the deal?

Dan

Hi Dan,

Thank you for reaching out to help clarify this unfortunate situation.

We originally set up this deal with a limit one per customer with the understanding that Living Social controls this. We were receiving orders from customers who purchased 5-6 coupons placing multiple orders and redeeming multiple coupons. The deal was also set up as a limited time promotion, which was not executed as a limited time promotion on the Living Social side.

Furthermore, AJ Madison had a list of brands (which the coupon code would violate) that were excluded and additional rules that were not included in the fine print. They were not reachable over the holiday & are very apologetic. They are working with us to refund the customers.

Customer satisfaction is very important to us. AJ Madison is offering a 5% discount to all customers who had coupons with us and would still like to proceed with their order.

I hope this clarifies the situation.

Thanks for clarifying.

But I still don’t understand why you didn’t give people the option of a refund OR using their coupon with added terms and a hard limit of 1 per customer/address?

Dan

Dan,

This is the way Living social decided to handle the situation. They wanted to communicate with the customers without us being involved. They requested that no communication come from us to the customers and it will all be handled on their end. They also advised us to refer any calls to their customer service team.

Its a really unfortunate situation, this is not how we run our business.

AJ Madison Nixes Half Price Living Social Deal

Dear loyal LivingSocial customer,

We want to thank you for purchasing the LivingSocial deal for AJ Madison kitchen appliances, grills and more. Unfortunately, we just learned that AJ Madison is no longer able to honor vouchers and we’ll have to cancel this deal. We hate to be the bearer of bad news, but want to assure you that your purchase will be fully refunded. Please note: it may take up to five to seven business days for the transaction to appear on your credit/debit card statement.

Events like this are rare, but nonetheless disappointing. To help ease the pain — in addition to offering you a full refund — we will deposit 5 Deal Bucks into your account to be used on a future purchase.

If you have questions or concerns, you can always contact a Consumer Services Representative at help.livingsocial.com.

Thanks for understanding!

~LivingSocial Consumer Services

I contacted AJ Madison and they said they were not honoring the Living Social deal as there were “misunderstandings.” I guess that’s why they have a 1.5 star rating on Yelp. They signed a contract to make a deal, they advertised it themselves on their Facebook page, and now they stiff over 1,000 people who wanted to be their customer.

I contacted Living Social as I won’t be receiving any refund because I got the deal for free thanks to referring 3 people but they said there’s nothing else they can do.

The difference between this deal and the once-in-a-lifetime Fairmont deal where I brokered an agreement with Fairmont to honor their “mistaken” living social deal is that Fairmont actually cared about their reputation.

AJ Madison seemingly does not.  And nor does Living Social for that matter.

The lucky ones here are the folks who placed an order right away.  Several guys on the DansDeals Forums did that and already have their items!  It’s not just mistake airfares where it pays to act fast anymore…

My Coolest Use Of Miles Ever?

Related posts:
-My First Non-Travel Mileage Redemption
-Trip Notes: Hall Of Fame Trifecta And Fenway Park In 72 Hours

————————————————————-

I’ve used my miles for some pretty cool things.  Flying to Paris with my wife in a couples suite for 53K AMEX MR last December is up there.  Flying 19 hours nonstop from Newark to Singapore with just a couple of other people in our cabin  and then continuing on to the Maldives for 60K United was great.  Being able to escape it all with a couple of month long trips in our pre-baby days flying around the world in first class and staying in awesome 5 star hotels that were financed nearly entirely with miles is something I’ll never forget.

For me, my miles help me attain aspirational things that I could otherwise never afford or be able to attain.  And I’m addicted to getting as many as I can for as close to free as possible.

Generally burning miles for non-travel items is a terrible waste, but for a lifelong baseball fan my experience yesterday was just so darn cool.  The pictures speak for themselves. It was truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

IMG_5248a

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Running onto the field in the top of the 7th…

base5b

…and stealing second base!

base3b

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

base4b

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 Making off with my loot.

I originally used 25,000 United miles to get 4 field box seats, a parking pass, and the right to steal second base versus the Yankees in April but that game was postponed due to rain.  In the end I got free parking and field box seats to attend both games of the back to back traditional doubleheader makeup series a few weeks ago, free parking and field box seats to tonight’s game along with the stealing second base experience, and I still have 4 field box tickets from the original postponed game that I can use for any future game.

4 ball games with 4 seats each in field box alone is worth more than 25K miles, but the stealing second experience was what made the experience purely awesome.

Running out on the field and seeing myself on the JumboTron was completely surreal.  Time just stood still for me, it’s not something I’ve ever experienced before and I really can’t properly describe it.  The only thing I was really nervous about was being tackled by all of the cops on the field!

The base itself is surprisingly heavy and really tough to pry out of the ground.  In case anyone else wins a similar auction the trick is to kick the base at an angle and then wedge it out by forcing it straight up into the air.

After the game we decided to try to get some Indians players to autograph it, specifically we wanted to nab the Tribe’s ace (and thus likely future Yankee) Justin Masterson.  Justin pitched a shutout game in the opening match of the doubleheader that we went to versus the Yankees and pitched beautifully tonight as well, getting out of a zero out, bases loaded jam without yielding a single run.

On the way to the players parking lot just about everyone I passed was buzzing about me being the guy who stole second base.  Nobody could believe that I actually got to keep the base! People wanted to take pictures with it and just feel what it’s like.  Even bumped into some DansDeals readers who wanted to know how I pulled it off.

Justin Masterson is a true class act and he stuck around for at least 20 minutes signing everyone’s autographs, far longer than anyone else.  I called to get his attention by saying that I had stolen second base from the game.  When he looked up and saw the base he was shocked and exclaimed, “I thought you were kidding, you really do have second base!!!”

IMG_5263a

Justin Masterson signing the base.  The base is embossed with the date of the game and the Indians and Reds logos.

We also got signatures from Jason Giambi, who had a homer and a double, as well as Carlos Santana who singled as well.

The Indians rep told me that there was just one other base stolen by a fan this year, when United auctioned it off for the Indians versus the Red Sox.

Currently they don’t have a stealing second auction, but that can always change, so keep checking the United auction page.  There are auctions to watch pregame batting practice in Cleveland, and to throw out the ceremonial first pitch in Houston and in Los Angeles.

There are lots of ways to stock on United miles.  This year I’ve piled on over 300,000 miles from opening and meeting the spend thresholds on a United Explorer Consumer and Business (107K earned after I spent $1K on each and got offer matched), Sapphire Preferred (43K earned after spending $3K), Ink Bold (75K earned after spending $5K on gift cards), and Ink Plus (75K earned after spending $5K on gift cards).

Starwood also has an auction site where currently there are several cool experiences for Cubbies fans.  You can pick up Starpoints with the Starwood Preferred Guest® Credit Card from American Express or Starwood Preferred Guest® Business Credit Card from American Express.

When Do My Miles Or Points Expire?

———————————————————————————
Audience Rewards: Starwood
Audience Rewards: Delta
Audience Rewards: US Airways

Audience Rewards allows you to answer trivia questions to earn miles from Delta, USAirways, and Starwood.
Delta’s miles are just about the least valuable out there besides for El Al and they never expire, so there’s not really any point to waste your time there.

But Starwood and USAirways require activity every 18 months to keep your points alive, so take 20 seconds and answer a trivia question and you’ll get 2 miles or points per correct answer but more importantly extend the life of your entire account balance for 18 months.
You can only answer each question once, but you can answer one USAirways question for 2 miles and the other questions for more valuable Starpoints if you’d like.

Here are the correct answers:
Q: What song is NOT listed in the program for Pippin but IS featured in the show? A: I Guess I’ll Miss the Man

Q: True or False? Horton Foote is no longer living. A: True

Q: The poster artwork for Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike features Sigorney Weaver in what Disney pricess costume? A: Snow White

Q: True or False? Alan Cumming is NOT the only person in the cast of the current Macbeth revival on Broadway? A: True

Q: True or False? Andrew Keenan Bolger made his Broadway debut with Newsies. A: False

Q: What name does the female lead in Nice Work If You Can Get It go by, that can also be a man’s name? A: Billie
