What Exactly Is American’s AAdvantage?

American’s AAdvantage program has been undergoing death by a thousand cuts.

Clearly the mergers of the last decade have decimated airline loyalty programs. The loss of AirTran, America West, Continental, Northwest, and USAirways have meant that the remaining oligopoly of airlines no longer need to compete on the same level that they used to. Hubs have been eliminated and will continue to disappear. Miles have become harder to earn when flying and become less valuable when cashed in.

In the meantime Delta has put all of their focus into their airline operations and they no longer even publish award charts.
United devalued their program in 2014 in one fell swoop. But after American’s changes, the United mileage program is far superior and the airline’s operations have been rapidly improving since they fired Smisek.

American’s trickle style roll out of bad news since the merger coupled with poor airline operations and abysmal award availability has been nothing short of a horror film.

1. They removed the ability to get a free stopover on award tickets without warning. Their own partner Alaska allows a stopover on one-way tickets even when redeeming for American flights. Competition like United still allows for a stopover and open jaw on awards that make using miles very valuable when utilized properly.

2. They removed their lucrative round-the-world award chart without warning. We got great use out of it on a trip around the world in 2010 and would have liked to have known before it was removed. United and ANA still have good round-the-world options.

3. They increased their AAnytime award flight options to have multiple levels of expensive awards, making it cost prohibitive to redeem for flights on peak dates. United still maintains one rate that makes the higher award level far more reasonable than American.

4. They still don’t provide free upgrades for lower and mid-tier elites as Delta and United do.

5. The new Platinum Pro level is the most unimaginatively named level ever and is the 3rd type of Platinum in American’s program. Worse than its unfortunate name, it won’t have the fee-waiver benefits provided by Delta and United like free award cancellations and free confirmed standby and it only gives 2 free 50 pound checked bags compared to 3 free 70 pound bags with Delta or United Platinum.

6. They’re finally rolling out domestic upgrades on award tickets, but only for top-tier Executive Platinums (though that comes after cutting their international upgrade certificates in half). Delta offers this for Gold and higher while United offers this to all elites who have a United credit card.

7. They’re devaluing their Gold and Platinum lifetime status levels by introducing higher levels and upgrades that are prioritized by the amount of money you’ve spent on flights in the past 12 months, something that no other airline does. So much for long-term loyalty.

8. They’re now requiring $3K in spending on top of flying to earn Gold, $6K for Platinum, $9K for Platinum Pro, and $12K for Executive Platinum. That’s copying Delta and United’s requirements. However Delta and United waive the spend requirement for foreign members while American will not.

9. Delta and United also waive the elite spend requirement if you spend $25K in a calendar year on their co-brand credit cards (excluding the ability to earn 1K status on United), while American did not announce any such waiver.

10. Their saver award space availability has deteriorated to the point that I’m not even sure it’s better than Delta’s. Both of those airlines lag miles behind United, especially if you have a United credit card.

11. Their award chart was once a bright spot, but was mAAsacred earlier this year and no longer provides a competitive advantage.

12. They have draconian routing rules, such as not allowing a flight from the US to Australia to transit via Asia and not allowing a flight from the US to Southern South America to connect in Central or Northern South America. American also requires that there be a published fare for award flights that you take, that you take the most direct routing, and they limit the total distance you can fly to MPM+25%. These restrictions exacerbate award availability issues. United has none of these restrictions.

13. American charges a massive fuel surcharge to fly on British Airways and a small fuel surcharge to fly on Iberia, making it tough to fly to Europe without paying outrageous fees. United has far more partner airlines than American and doesn’t charge a fuel surcharge for travel on any of them.

14. Operationally speaking, American has the worst tarmac delays, cancellation, and mishandled bag rates among all domestic carriers. Delta is by far the best domestic airline from an operation standpoint, and United is better than American and has been improving.

15. American cancelled their interline agreement with Delta as it became too expensive to keep sending their delayed and cancelled passengers to Delta. United still has an interline agreement with American and Delta, meaning they have more options to accommodate passengers when issues arise. I experienced pain from this issue firsthand.

16. American ended their El Al mileage relationship in 2014 and ended their own flights to Tel Aviv this year, leaving them with zero partners that fly between North America and Tel Aviv compared to 7-11 weekly Delta flights to Israel and 28 weekly Star Alliance flights on United and their partner Air Canada.

17. The OneWorld alliance no longer requires airlines to interline bags to other carriers even within the  alliance if you purchase 2 separate tickets. American claims they will still do so, but in my experience it was very hard to get them to do that and will likely become impossible. Delta and United still interline within their alliance on 2 tickets and United will interline to other airlines if you have elite status or even if you just ask nicely.

18. Many of American’s award partners are still not available online, which means having to call and play call center roulette to book awards on airlines like Air Tahiti Nui, Cathay Pacific, Etihad, JAL, and others. Just today I had an American phone agent outright lie to me about award space that I knew was there. I HUCA’d and received it, but they have seemingly stopped making progress in getting more airlines on their website. Progress has even gone backwards as airlines like AirBerlin have shows more award space on Iberia’s site than on American’s.

19. American’s flight status on their website and app are very primitive. It’s updated very late and often displays incorrect information in delay situations. United’s flight status on their website and app provides far more useful and timely updates and information.

20. American’s customer service is horrendous. I’ve experience this firsthand on a few occasions, but every aspect of their airline from gate agents, club agents, luggage agents, Twitter agents, executive office agents, and DoT representative agents have dropped the ball on our cancelled flight to London and their failure to provide a refund or alternate flight afterward. Delta and United would have had this solved in no time, but nobody at American cares or has the power to fix anything.

21. If you do want to redeem for an American flight, you’ll always do better by using miles from partner airlines like Alaska, BA, or Etihad, so there’s no longer much of a point of collecting miles from American. If you do fly on American you should credit your flights to a partner like Alaska.

22. I’ve found American to be very inflexible to deal with for schedule changes on award tickets. Delta and United are typically quite accommodating when flight times change in my experience, while that can’t be said for American.

23. The bottom line is that if you want operational excellence then your default choice ought to be Delta. If you value your miles then your default choice ought to be United.

But unless you find a cheap fare or you’re stuck in an American captive hub like Dallas, what exactly is American’s AAdvantage and why do they deserve your loyalty?

Did I miss any other disAAdvantages? If you’re an American loyalist, are you planning on sticking around or are you jumping ship?

Final Day To Register For Chase Freedom Q2 Spending, Bonus Points For Wholesale Clubs Extended Through End Of 2016

Chase Freedom Visa

You can click here to activate this quarter’s Chase Freedom 5% categories.

Costco will switch from AMEX cards to Visa cards on June 20, but if you want to lock in savings without going to a store, you can buy Costco Cash cards to earn 5 points per dollar. It takes Costco about a week to actually charge you for cash card orders, so be sure to order those now and don’t wait until the end of the month.

You must register for Q2 bonus spending at grocery stores and wholesale clubs by today and complete spending by June 30th.

Additionally, Chase has announced that wholesale clubs will be included in Q3 and Q4 spend categories, so you can earn 5 points per dollar at BJs, Costco, and Sams Club throughout 2016.

Q3 bonus spending will include restaurants (which includes caterers, cafes, etc) and wholesale clubs and you can spend up to $1,500 for 7,500 points in those categories.

Chase Freedom is an excellent no annual fee card thanks to its quarterly 5% categories. While they call it 5% cash back, you’ll really get 5 Ultimate Rewards points per dollar spent which can be worth much more than 5% cash. For $1,500 in spending per quarter you will earn at least 30,000 Ultimate Rewards points over the course of a year (7,500 points per quarter at 5 points per dollar spent).

While Chase Freedom is a great card for the bonus categories, it’s not a great card for everyday spending. However the brand new Chase Freedom Unlimited card is excellent for everyday spending.

2016 Chase Freedom bonus categories:
Q1: Gas stations and local commuter transportation
Q2: Grocery stores and wholesale clubs like BJs, Costco, and Sams Club.
Q3: Restaurants and wholesale clubs.
Q4: Wholesale clubs, Holiday shopping (Likely Amazon.com) and more to be announced.

Freedom alone can’t transfer points into much more lucrative airline or hotel miles, but if you or your spouse has a Sapphire Preferred or Ink Plus card then you can transfer points from Freedom to one of those cards and from there to your favorite travel currency. You can read at the end of this post which currencies they can transfer to and why those points are much more valuable than just taking cash back. The Freedom card can also keep your points alive for free if you do close one of those cards.

The value of the points will be based on where you use them, but if you use those points for a trip worth where they are worth 2 cents each then you’ll have effectively earned 10% back on those “5 point categories.” The sky is the limit of the value of airline miles as they aren’t tied to the cost of a ticket. That’s good for people in the know and bad for those who are not. 1 mile can be worth 0.25 cents or it can be worth 25 cents, it all just depends on how you use them!

500 Free Marriott Points, Plus Extend The Life Of Your Existing Miles

Marriott’s official Instagram page says that if you follow them by 6/21 and enter your email address via this link that you will get 500 points.

Just scroll down the page to where it says “Enter the email address associated with your Rewards account”

It doesn’t seem there’s any possible way for them to verify that you follow them with the way it’s setup.

It also doesn’t say how long it will take for the points to post, but when they do it will extend the life of your Marriott points for 24 months.

Marriott is in the process of merging with Starwood, though the loyalty programs won’t be merged until 2018. If you collect Starpoints but don’t have a Marriott account it can be worth opening an account and taking the free points as they will merge by 2018. It’s also likely that points will be able to be transferred back and forth before that point. It’s still unknown at what ratio Starpoints will be valued at compared to Marriott points.

Roundup Of Routes Where Kosher Meals Are Served By North American Airlines

Kosher meals, or KSMLs in airline speak, can be a hit or miss, though the latter is more common. In this post I wrote about some of the best and worst that I’ve received.

Hermolis out of London is famous for their very good kosher meals, though this salmon meal (there are also steak and chicken options) that we had in United business class from Honolulu to Newark in February was outstanding:

DSC02922a

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Kosher meals need to be ordered 24 or 48 hours in advance and you should never rely on an online request or a request from a codeshare airline, you should always call the airline that you’re flying with to confirm a kosher meal request. It’s also a good idea to remind flight attendants to warm up the meal in the double wrapping and to serve it double wrapped. I’ve been served meals where the food has been opened and it’s worthless in those cases.

On long-haul flights I often bring my own double-wrapped meal (Nicknamed BYOK, as in, Bring Your Own Kosher meal) and ask the flight attendant if they can heat it up. I’ve only been refused on Cathay Pacific and just showing a flight attendant a bad kosher meal is usually enough in case they are on the fence. Often times the airlines forget to load your kosher meal and that’s a good enough reason for them to warm your own meal up and for some compensation afterward.

Either way, it’s good to know when you can order a kosher meal. Almost all major foreign carriers offer kosher meals in all classes of service on longer flights, but that’s beyond the scope of this article.

As for North American carriers, Air Canada and Delta have the most generous KSML policies, while United is stingier and Ameircan takes last place. JetBlue has a simple policy and excellent kosher meals, but not many of their flights offer Mint class.

Air Canada:
-Available in all classes on international flights that depart or arrive outside of North/Central America.
-Available in first/business class on all routes.

American:
-Available in all classes on international flights across the Atlantic or Pacific.
-Available in all classes on international flights to/from Argentina, Chile, Uruguay, and the following Brazilian cities: Belo Horizonte, Brasilia, Recife, Rio de Janeiro, Salvador, and Sao Paulo.
-Available in first/business class on flights to/from JFK and Los Angeles.
-Available in first/business class on flights to/from JFK and San Francisco.
-Available in first/business class on flights to/from Miami and Los Angeles.

Delta:
-Available in all classes on international flights across the Atlantic or Pacific.
-Available in all classes on flights to/from Argentina, Brazil, Chile, and Peru.
-Available in first/business class for domestic flights that are at least 900 miles long that depart between 5am-1:30pm and 4pm-8pm.
-Available in first/business class for domestic flights that are at least 1,400 miles long that depart between 5am-8pm.
-Available in first/business class on all flights to/from JFK and Los Angeles.
-Available in first/business class on all flights to/from JFK and San Francisco.

JetBlue:
-Available in Mint class on all routes. Menu can be viewed here.

United:
-Available in all classes on international flights across the Atlantic or Pacific.
-Available in all classes on flights to/from Argentina, Brazil, Chile, and Peru.
-Available in first/business class on flights to Hawaii
-Available in first/business class on flights from Honolulu or Maui.
-Available in first/business class on flights to/from Newark and Los Angeles.
-Available in first/business class on flights to/from Newark and San Francisco.

Alaska, Allegiant, Frontier, Hawaiian, Southwest, Spirit, Sun Country, Virgin America, and WestJet do not offer any kosher meals.

British Airways Claims To Have Fixed Kosher Meal Snafu For Business Class Passengers

Related: On The Topic Of KSMLs; Not Having A Reserved Kosher Meal Costs Lufthansa How Much?!?


British Airways offers a number of routes with “sleeper service” in business class. You can view the exact flight numbers of those routes here.

On sleeper service routes there is just a quick snack service before the lights are turned off. Previously BA would serve kosher meals in the lounge for these flights, but on May 10th they stopped offing special meals in their lounges.

I had some readers let me know that the lounge agents told them that they would have food on the plane, while on the plane there were no kosher meals loaded because it was a sleeper service flight. And there were reports online that confirmed that experience. BA’s flight attendants were never informed of any changes and told passengers that their meal was in the lounge. Flight attendants reported the issue multiple times to BA to no avail.

The irony is that passengers in coach and first class are able to order kosher meals, but business class passengers could not.

I emailed customer service on BA.com and got a response from “Utkarsh” that he checked on BA.com the kosher meals are still available. Helpful.

Then I emailed BA public relations and they responded last week,

For sleeper service, customers can order a Kosher meal, but it must be done 48 hours in advance and it’s offered at the lounge, not onboard.

Of course that wasn’t true anymore. It seems like the left hand doesn’t know what the right hand is doing and that’s probably why people have been having issues. So I pushed again and said that the lounge agents are saying that kosher meals are no longer available in the lounge and sleeper service flights weren’t being catered with kosher meals for business class passengers.

And finally the right people appear to be in communication with each other as they responded to me earlier this week,

“British Airways made some changes to their catering recently for sleeper service flights and customers can book special meals in advance. These meals will now be served onboard where previously they were served in the lounge.

We apologize for any misunderstanding this may have caused with your readers.”

So hopefully they’ve solved this issue now and you will get a kosher meal in business class onboard the flight even on sleeper service routes. If you are flying business class on a BA sleeper service flight please post a comment about the current kosher meal situation.

What’s The Story With Award Availability At The Waldorf Astoria Jerusalem?

Update: Award availability has significantly improved as of yesterday and has opened up on more than 50 dates that I’ve been tracking. That’s a great sign going forward from my favorite hotel in Israel, so hats off to the Waldorf team in Jerusalem.


Originally posted on 5/31:
Related post: The Dollars And Cents Behind A Hotel Award Stay; What The Park Hyatt Toronto Makes On An Award Stay


Point hotels in Israel are hard to come by.

Not long ago Starwood had 13 properties that were all bargains with Starpoints. I stayed in many of them on a month-long trek across the holy land in August of 2007, spending just a couple thousand Starpoints per night to stay in Jerusalem, Haifa, Eilat, Tiberias, and the Dead Sea.  Now there’s just 1 left, the Sheraton Tel Aviv, and at 12K-16K points per night it’s not the bargain it once was. The W Tel Aviv-Jaffa was slated to open fall 2015 but that has been pushed back to November 2016. I’ve heard rumors of a Westin Tel Aviv, but nothing for Jerusalem.

Hyatt had a Jerusalem hotel but now has nothing.

Marriott has the Renaissance Tel Aviv Hotel and the Ritz-Carlton Herzliya.

IHG has a nice selection of hotels in Israel, though the Crowne Plaza Jerusalem is dated and isn’t in a good location for tourists.

Hilton has had several hotels in Jerusalem over the years that have come and gone. The David Citadel opened as the Hilton Jerusalem in 1998 but left Hilton in 2001.

The Waldorf Astoria Jerusalem opened in 2014 and is a gem, possibly the finest hotel in the whole country.

DSC04811a

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We stayed there last year and had a wonderful time. It costs 64K-80K points per night, but it’s well worth it. Citi gives 2 free nights there with the Citi Hilton Reserve card. The Reserve card even gives Gold status which earns you free breakfast, a real treat at the Waldorf. But those nights can officially only be used on weekends.

Hilton doesn’t have capacity controls on their standard award nights. Hotels set a base room type and if they are selling base rooms you can redeem points for that room. Hilton divides its hotels into 10 categories based on their average room rates. The Waldorf Astoria Jerusalem is a category 9 hotel. Category 9 hotels cost 50K points/night in low season and 80K points/night in high season.

However unlike other brands like Starwood, Hilton allows hotels to declare every date on the calendar as high season, so the Waldorf has every single date marked at the high season rate of 80K points/night. If you are a Hilton elite or cardholder you get the 5th night free on awards, so that drops the cost of a 5 night stay to 64K points/night. Hilton AMEX cardholders can also book a 4 night stay for 65K points/night.

If a hotel is sold out of base rooms then they don’t have to offer any standard point rooms. They sell other rooms at massive premiums to the standard rate.

Some hotels are notorious for playing dirty pool.

One of the worst offenders is the Andaz Maui which added a new type of base room after they opened called the “Garden View.” They typically don’t sell this room type directly on Hyatt.com and even on the rare occasion that they do, they have a 5 night minimum stay requirement. However I’ve found Garden view rooms for sale on other sites without a 5 night minimum and when I’ve emailed Hyatt about that, they just say they’ll contact the other booking website to remove the Garden view room. Well, isn’t that helpful…

The reason that some hotels abuse the no capacity controls on award nights is that hotels are typically privately owned and are managed by companies like Hilton, Hyatt, or Starwood in order to drum up more business. Those hotel management companies send loyal guests to the hotels and the hotels pay a royalty to the hotel management company. They also participate in loyalty programs that has a cost to the hotel, but is worthwhile due to having guests that actively seek out specific hotel brands.

When a guest uses points at a hotel the hotel management company typically reimburses the hotel with a small fraction of the daily rate. This is usually a big profit center for the hotel chain as Hilton might sell 80K points to a credit card company for $320 but they might only reimburse the hotel $50 for the night. The catch is that if a hotel is fully occupied (typically at least 90% or 95% full though it varies based on the hotel management contract) then the hotel management company will reimburse the hotel at the average room rate for that night.

Last Monday, DDF member yg99 noticed that he couldn’t find any award space at the Waldorf Astroria Jerusalem.

I took a look and he was right, there were zero standard rooms for sale from now through 2017, which meant no rooms were bookable for standard points or with Citi free nights. Everything was wiped out.

I reached out to a few contacts at the hotel Monday morning asking for a comment and didn’t hear back from them by the next morning, so on Tuesday I emailed Guy Klaiman, the general manager of the Waldorf Astoria Jerusalem, about the disappearance of standard rooms.

He quickly replied,

“We were configuring our reservation site in the past days, this is the reason some dates are closed. It would change in the coming days.
Regards,
Guy”


And indeed, right about then I noticed along with DDF members that superior rooms start showing up once again at the standard points rate.

However eagle-eyed DDF’ers now noted that every Thursday and Friday night were still showing no superior rooms available. So I emailed them again asking about the sudden disappearance of weekend award availability.

This time I heard from Katy Peer, a reservations manager that,

“Superior rooms are open for Midweek (Sunday-Wednesday). CLOSED on High season.”


Well we’ve always known that the Waldorf never released any superior rooms on holidays like Sukkos, but blocking that award space on weekends was something new, so I pressed once again, asking if this was a change in policy going forward to which she responded,

“Some weekends are open, depends of hotel occupancy.”


Of course, hotels shouldn’t be blocking base rooms due to occupancy. They should offer them until they’re sold out.

I’ll leave out the funny but mistakenly received “reply all” email at this point, but in the meantime superior rooms began to reappear for weekends during off-peak months. However many weekend nights are still blocked from now through July and from October through next April. And all nights are blocked around Sukkos, around the “Yeshiva weeks” in late January, and for next Pesach. Aside from Sukkos, all of those dates had standard rooms for sale before last week’s changes.

I emailed back the GM for further clarification and he wrote,

“The Hilton Honor standard room reward program is intended to improve our guests satisfaction and available according to the hotels availability.”

That’s not much of an answer for what’s been going on. What are the odds that all of those weekends sold out of superior rooms overnight?

The even odder part is that if a hotel is nearly full it gets fully compensated for award stays, so why is there even a need to block award stays during periods of high occupancy? And rooms sold during low occupancy generate some revenue when there otherwise wouldn’t have been any. It seems like a good thing to me, though it’s possible that occupancy isn’t full enough to trigger the full payment for the room from Hilton and that’s the reason for what’s going on here.

So I asked the GM,

“Doesn’t Hilton reimburse the hotel at ADR for award stays when occupancy is near full? Why is there a need to block high occupancy dates when those are the dates that Hilton reimburse ADR?”

ADR is the hotel’s average daily rate.

To which he responded,

“I appreciate your knowledge , however availability is according to the hotels standard rooms availability.”

That’s also not an answer.

Loyalty is a 2 way street. If the rules of a loyalty program are that a hotel can’t have capacity controls, then the bulk disappearance of those rooms from the calendar seems to run against that principle. The space ought to be tied to the actual inventory of superior rooms as is intended, rather than just left to the whims of the hotel.

I emailed this article to the GM last week asking for comment, but after hearing nothing I suppose that’s all we’re going to hear about this.

Clearly, Israel is a tough market for chain hotels and the temptation to de-flag is real, though it comes at a financial cost and loss of name brand recognition. The Waldorf Astoria Jerusalem offers a product and service that is head and shoulders above their competition and I’d love nothing more than for them to stick with their flag for decades to come, while maintaining a high level of performance. I’m just hoping that the shenanigans are left by the wayside and that this isn’t indicative of their future direction.

European Fall Fare War!

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.

Bookable on Priceline. Tickets purchased from Priceline today are refundable until 11:29pm tomorrow. Please see this post for directions on how to cancel these tickets.

Bookable on Orbitz. Orbitz tickets are refundable until 11pm ET tomorrow.


American and United are in an all-out European fare war with cheap tickets from each other’s hub cities to various cities in Europe this fall from September-December.

That means cheap fares on American from United’s hubs of Cleveland, Denver, Newark, San Francisco, and Washington DC/IAD. (Shh, please don’t tell AA that United dehubbed CLE years ago).

And it means cheap fares on United from American’s hubs of Charlotte, Dallas, Philadelphia, and Phoenix. United’s fares from Philadelphia are valid from the airport or from ZFV, the downtown Philadelphia Amtrak station. You’ll need to start at the Amtrak station, but nobody will make you take the return Amtrak.

Their shared hubs of Chicago and Los Angeles are mostly exempt.

Google Flights is a good way to find sample dates.

Among many other dates and cities, here are a few sample valid sale fares:
Philadelphia downtown train station (ZFV) to Barcelona from 9/14-9/21 for $387 (on United via Newark, bookable on United)
Philadelphia downtown train station (ZFV) to Madrid from 10/26-10/30 for $392 (on United via Newark, bookable on Orbitz)
Newark to Lisbon from 9/11-9/19 for $407 (on American via Philadelphia, bookable on Orbitz)
-Newark to Zurich from 9/14-9/18 for $414 (on American via Philadelphia, bookable on Priceline)
Newark to Frankfurt from 9/14-9/18 for $470 (on American via Philadelphia, bookable on Priceline)
Cleveland to Zurich from 9/7-9/11 for $414 (on American via Philadelphia, bookable on Priceline)
San Francisco to Zurich from 9/14-9/19 for $414 (on American via Philadelphia, bookable on Priceline)
Dallas to Barcelona from 11/10-11/16 for $394 (on United via Newark, bookable on Priceline)
-Phoenix to Barcelona from 12/6-12/10 for $394 (on Air Canada via Toronto, bookable on Priceline)

Other European cities on sale include Berlin, Copenhagen, Lisbon, Munich, Stockholm, and Vienna.

3 Day Southwest $49, $79, $99 And $129 Sale, Flights From 2,336 Points

Southwest Sale Linky

Southwest Route Map

Southwest is having one of their best sales of the year today. Other airlines are also matching their fares.

Southwest still offers 2 free checked bags. Plus you can cancel revenue tickets with no charge and use the funds for a future flight. Point reservations can be cancelled for free with the points redeposited.

If you have previously booked Southwest tickets with cash or points and the price has gone down be sure to go online to make a change or call to get a refund for the difference!

When Southwest has a sale the points needed for a free flight also go on sale as Rapid Rewards is a revenue based program.  A one-way short-haul flight can be had for just 2,336 points-a value of 1.86 cents per point

You can transfer Chase Ultimate Rewards points instantly to Southwest at a 1:1 ratio.

You can earn 50K points for signing up for the Chase Southwest Visa.

If you have a Chase Ink Cash or Ink Plus card you can earn 5 Ultimate Rewards points (transferable to several airlines and hotels) per dollar spent by buying Southwest gift cards at Staples.

If you have a Southwest companion pass your paid and free travel would be effectively doubled, so you would have $10,000 worth of paid flights plus $3,630 of free flights from points…but that would take a whole lot of Southwest travel!  You can get a companion pass from earning 110,000 points from sources like the Chase Southwest credit card or transfers from hotels programs like Hyatt (50K Chase=50K Hyatt=30K Southwest)

Fare rules:
-Book by 06/09
-Travel between 08/23-12/14.
-Lowest priced flights are on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Saturdays. Sale fares are also available on Mondays and Thursdays.
-Seats are limited.

Sample deals on nonstop flights:
-Long Island (ISP)-Baltimore 8/24-8/30 for $97.96 round-trip with tax. Or you can use 4,672 Southwest or Chase points+$11.20 tax.  That’s a value of 1.86 cents per Southwest point (86.76/4,672).
-Cleveland-Chicago 8/24-8/30 for $97.96 round-trip with tax. Or you can use 4,672 Southwest or Chase points+$11.20 tax.  That’s a value of 1.86 cents per Southwest point (86.76/4,672).
