Is United’s Devaluation Significantly Worse Than Promised Or Is It Just A Bug?

Last week United eliminated most award stopovers, free one-ways, and round-the-world awards.

Tough pill to swallow, but that’s the way the industry has gone and United generously introduced an Excursionist Perk that allows for a stopover as long as it occurs in the same region as the destination and doesn’t occur in the region of origin.

Despite some rumors to the contrary, they also didn’t eliminate XN, YN, or JN expanded award availability for cardholders or a seminar tip.

And they even fixed Expert Mode, which now shows up on award searches once again.  When it was eliminated I contacted the 1K email support team who told me that it had been disabled permanently. I followed up explaining why I found it so useful to know how many award seats were available without having to do an award search for the award calendar and then having to do a revenue search to view how many award seats were actually available and they let me know back in June that it was fixed. When I told them it was still not showing they said they would bring it back and it’s good to see it finally make its return. This saver award nonstop from Tel Aviv to Newark on March 1st has at least 9 seats for cardholders and elites but no saver awards seats for non cardholders.

However since the update I can’t login to my account details page in Chrome, though it still works in Firefox.

But worse than the stopover elimination is that when using the multi-city search on the website or by phone the system now prices every segment separately. You can no longer create a routing even if it falls within the award rules.

In the past you were able to use multi-city search to string together award flights that United.com didn’t come up with. In other words if you search for an award from NYC to Tel Aviv you’ll find many routing options on United.com, but you can find many more by searching from NYC to Europe and Europe to Tel Aviv. In the past you were able to manually select flights and they priced at the same rate as a regular award.

Now United.com and phone agents are charging separately for each leg when manually requested. That means you’re stuck with what United.com finds, if you use the multi-city option you are penalized even if you select the same flights that United.com does find!

United.com successfully found a flight from Tel Aviv to JFK via Munich for 42.5K:

However when I select those exact flights via multi-city search it now prices each leg separately:

ua18

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

United.com was unable to find a business class flight from NYC to Sydney on December 6th:

nyc

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

It was able to find an 80K business class option from Los Angeles to Sydney:

lax1

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

By using multi-city search I easily added the NYC-LAX flight to that itinerary by searching NYC-LAX and LAX-SYD. But instead of the 80K miles it should have cost, it shows 92.5K due to the new pricing logic:

nyc3

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

nyc1

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

How bad is the new pricing logic? If I search for NYC-AKL and AKL-SYD then the same exact flights come back at 110K:

ny4

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

nyc2

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

If United.com comes up with NYC-LAX-AKL-SYD it’s 80K in business class. If I use multi-city search it can be 92.5K or 110K depending on how I input the search.

Is this #UnitedUnfriendly or a#UnitedBug?

Singapore Airlines Applies For Tel Aviv Flights

Ynet (Hebrew) reports that Singapore has applied for TLV landing permits for mid-2017.

Singapore flies a number of 5th Freedom routes such as JFK-Frankfurt, Houston-Manchester, Los Angeles-Tokyo, Los Angeles-Seoul, San Francisco-Hong Kong, and San Francisco-Seoul that all continue onward to Singapore.

It’s unlikely that Singapore would be able to pull off a 5th freedom route from a US city to Singapore via Tel Aviv, but we can still dream about that 🙂

Singapore is my favorite airline in the world. We’ve flown to Europe in Singapore’s couple suites, I flew on the longest flight in the world from Newark to Singapore for 19 hours in business class and was sad when it was over. I flew in coach with a ghetto upgrade (4 seats in coach for myself) from the Maldives to Singapore and that was actually better than the regional business class flight I took from Singapore to the Maldives. Singapore’s service is simply second to none and their cabins are all fantastic.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

They have amazing mileage rates for business and suites class and you can transfer points from AMEX, Chase, Citi, or Starwood to Singapore.

It’s worth noting that Ynet reported last year that Cathay Pacific was planning to fly to Israel in 2016 and that didn’t happen, so perhaps it’s worth taking this news with a grain of salt. But it’s still exciting nonetheless.

Get $15 Off $300 Or $30 Off $600 Of Visa Gift Cards From Office Max Or Office Depot This Week

Get $15 off $300 or $30 off $600 in Visa gift cards from Office Max or Office Depot stores by 10/15.

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

This sale isn’t advertised in the weekly ad, but there should be a sign by the gift card rack in your local store.

Last December my local store let me buy 60 cards as I racked up the miles in record time.

If your local store tries limiting you to less than 3 cards just point out that the sign says limit of 2 offers per customer, which by definition would require the purchase of at least 3 of the $200 gift cards to reach $30 off $600.

The total charge for $600 in gift cards after fees is $590.85 and you’ll earn 2,955 points by charging it to an Ink card.

You can use the gift cards to buy money orders at Walmart or at various grocery stores, gas stations or post offices. Just use the last 4 digits of the card as the PIN number to cash them out.

Or you can donate the gift card to charity and get a receipt for the full $200 face value.

Or you can give away a gift card as a wedding or Bar Mitzvah gift.

Or you can always use it for everyday spending.

Get A 50% Bonus When You Transfer American Express Membership Rewards Points Into British Airways Avios

Update: This offer ends tomorrow!


Originally posted on 8/10:

Get A 50% Bonus When You Transfer American Express Membership Rewards Points Into British Airways Avios

-Through 10/10 you will get 1,200 Avios for every 1,000 Membership Rewards (MR) Points transferred to BA. Normally you get 800 Avios for every 1,000 MR points transferred to BA.

This is only valid for US cardholders.

Previous MR->Avios bonus offers:

03/15/12=50%

08/10/16=50%

About British Airways Avios:

In 2011 BA launched the Avios program and it provides a great value for short-haul flights.

Unfortunately their domestic OneWorld partner, American, has been stingy with award availability of late. You’ll want to search for saver awards on AA.com to check the availability on your desired routes before transferring miles.

American also forced BA to raise the zone 1 rates they charge for US flights from 4.5K to 7.5K Avios earlier this year, though zone 1 in the rest of the world remains just 4.5K Avios.

-There are no expedite or close-in fees for last minute award ticket bookings with BA Avios.  That saves you $75 compared to other programs.

-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 lesser of $55 or the taxes you paid.  That means you pay just $5.60 for cancel a one-way domestic itinerary (and you always should book domestic flights as one-ways). That saves you up to $200 compared to other programs when you need to cancel.

-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.

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

-You can save Avios on some routes by transferring points from BA Avios into Iberia Avios. Iberia’s awards start at just 11K Avios round-trip.

-You can search American and Alaska award availability on AA.com by 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 LATAM 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.

I’ve booked dozens of short-haul tickets using Avios for travel on American.  A Cleveland-NYC ticket can cost $1,200 round-trip if you don’t stay for at least 3 days or if you book last-minute.  But BA allows me to use just 15,000 Avios for that same flight, a whopping value of over 13 cents per mile.  I can hop over to Chicago or NYC on a whim without any kind of mileage regret like I used to have in the pre-Avios days.

-Avoiding fuel surcharges:
-There are no fuel surcharges for travel on American within the Western Hemisphere. Flights start at 7,500 Avios plus $5.60.
-Air Berlin flights still have no fuel surcharges systemwide and remain the cheapest way to get to Israel. They have flights to Israel from Berlin for 10K Avios. Flights to several US cities cost just 20K Avios.

-Niki flights have no fuel surcharges systemwide.
-Aer Lingus flights have no fuel surcharges systemwide, though they can only be booked over the phone.. A flight from Boston to Dublin or Shannon is just 12,500 Avios in coach or 37,500 Avios in business. From there you can fly elsewhere within Europe without paying fuel surcharges.  Plus you can fly to Boston from cities like Buffalo, NYC, Pittsburgh, Philadelphia, or Washington DC for just 7.5K Avios. These flights can only be booked over the phone.
-Alaska flights have no fuel surcharges systemwide, these flights can only be booked over the phone.
-LATAM flights have no fuel surcharges systemwide. Some of their flights can only be booked over the phone.
-Flights within Australia, Europe, Japan, and many other countries and regions have little to no fuel surcharges.
-There are also no fuel surcharges for flying on Qantas within or from Australia.
-Fuel surcharges on award-winning carrier Cathay Pacific are also very low or non-existent and you don’t even need to fly all the way to Hong Kong (though you should-great city with awesome kosher food, airport lounges with kosher food, and a business or first class flight you’ll never forget!) to get a taste of their awesome service, seat, pajamas, and amenities. They fly a daily 777 nonstop between JFK and Vancouver which I reviewed in this trip report.
-You can significantly cut the fuel surcharges when flying on Iberia by transferring your BA Avios into Iberia Avios
-British Airways 5th Freedom Flights (flights that don’t depart from or arrive to the UK) have significantly lower fees. For example even though Singapore-Sydney is a longer flight than NYC-London the fees in first class on Singapore-Sydney are less than half of those from NYC-London.
–As long as you have earned a single Avios within the past 12 months then fuel surcharges for intra-Europe and intra-Africa flights will be very low. You can transfer points from AMEX, Chase, or Starwood to activate that benefit.

-16,750 MR points becomes 20,100 Avios, more than enough for a one-way 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 one-way flight nonstop flight between NYC or Chicago and Dublin or Shannon, Ireland with no fuel surcharges on Aer Lingus.

-21,000 MR points becomes 25,200 Avios, more than enough for a one-way flight between New York and Brazil or Argentina.

-41,750 MR points becomes 50,100 Avios, more than enough for a one-way flight in lie-flat first class on Cathay Pacific from JFK to Vancouver with no fuel surcharges.

AMEX Upgrades Platinum Card Benefits; Business Platinum Card 100,000 Point Signup Bonus And New Game Changing Benefits!

American Express is a DansDeals.com advertiser.

Chase stole the show in August and September with Sapphire Reserve mania. It’s truly an excellent card thanks to a 100K signup bonus, $300 in ultra-easy to obtain annual travel credits, Priority Pass lounge access with unlimited guests, triple points on all traveling and dining, Global Entry fee credit, and points that are transferable to excellent mileage currencies or that are worth 1.5 cents per dollar everywhere for travel. As Chase also offers a Freedom Unlimited card that earns 1.5 points per dollar everywhere, that means you earn 2.25 cents per dollar everywhere or 4.5 cents per dollar on travel purchases.

Now AMEX is striking back in a big way.

The consumer Platinum Card® from American Express now offers 5 points per dollar on airfare. By itself that isn’t a game changer, though it’s an excellent new benefit.

The game changing news comes with The Enhanced Business Platinum® Card from American Express OPEN. It now offers a 50% rebate when you redeem coach airfare with your choice of an airline and a 50% rebate when you redeem for business or first class airfare with any airline on amextravel.com. Be sure you are logged in to redeem points.

If there’s a $100 airline ticket you want to book it will cost 10,000 points and you’ll get 5,000 points back. That means your points are effectively worth 2 cents each. And unlike with mileage tickets, you will also earn miles for these tickets. AMEX also offers insider fares that can make your points be worth even more than 2 cents each towards paid airfare.

Until 1/25/17 the Business Platinum Card is offering 50K points for spending $5,000 and another 50K points for spending an additional $10,000 within 3 months for first time Business Platinum cardholders.

The Business Platinum card now also earns 1.5 points per dollar on large purchases of $5,000 of more. You can earn up to 1 million points annually with that bonus.

But there’s a much easier way to earn at least 1.5 points per dollar everywhere:

-The Amex EveryDay Preferred Credit Card earns 4.5 miles per dollar at US supermarkets, 3 points per dollar at US gas stations, 2.5 points per dollar on Uber, and 1.5 points per dollar everywhere else if you make 30 transactions per month. It has a $95 annual fee.

-The Amex EveryDay Credit Card earns 2.4 points per dollar at US supermarkets, 2.2 points per dollar on Uber, and 1.2 points per dollar elsewhere. It’s the only no-fee card that allows you to transfer points into miles.

The points all combine, so thanks to points being worth 2 cents each on the Business Platinum card for airfare, you can earn an effective 9% rebate at US supermarkets, 6% at US gas stations, 5% on Uber, and 3% everywhere else by spending on the Everyday Preferred card and redeeming with the Business Platinum card.

If you also have a Consumer Platinum card you’ll earn an effective 10% rebate at all airfare (5 points per dollar spent) by redeeming them with the Business Platinum card at a value of 2 cents each.

If you have an American Express® Premier Rewards Gold Card you can earn an effective 6% rebate on flights, 4% rebate at US gas stations, supermarkets, restaurants, and Uber by spending on the Premier Gold card and redeeming with the Business Platinum card.

For example:

A nonstop flight round-trip from JFK to Tel Aviv on Delta is $870 or 86.979 points. If you have a Business Platinum card and select Delta as the airline for your $200 airline fee credit and 2 cents per point on coach tickets you’ll get a rebate of about 43,490 points within 6-10 weeks. Effectively you’ll have paid just 43,490 points for this round-trip flight to Israel:

delta

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

You can also use cash plus any amount of points that you choose to redeem and you’ll still get a 50% rebate of all the points that you used!

A nonstop flight round-trip from JFK to Tel Aviv in business class on Delta for those dates is $2,998 or 283,179 points thanks to an insider fare discount that drops the mileage requirements from 299,779 to 283,179. If you have a Business Platinum card you get a 50% rebate on all airlines when you book business or first class travel, so no matter which airline you select for the $200 airline fee credit you’ll get a rebate of about 141,590 points within 6-10 weeks. Effectively you’ll have paid just 141,590 points for this round-trip flight to Israel, a value of 2.12 cents per points. There’s no need to hunt for saver award travel, this works on any paid fare.

A one-way flight from NYC to Miami on 11/1 is $53 or 5,210 points. If you have a Business Platinum card and select American or United as the airline for your $200 airline fee credit and 2 cents per point on coach tickets you’ll get a rebate of about 2,605 points within 6-10 weeks. Effectively you’ll have paid just 2,605 points for this flight to Miami:

mia1

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A nonstop one-way flight from LAX to JFK in business class on JetBlue is $549 or 54,810 points. If you have a Business Platinum card you get a 50% rebate on all airlines when you book business or first class travel, so no matter which airline you select for the $200 airline fee credit you’ll get a rebate of about 27,405 points within 6-10 weeks. Effectively you’ll have paid just 27,405 points for this flight. There’s no need to hunt for saver award travel, this works on any paid fare. JetBlue business class offers lie-flat seating and amenity kits. Single mint suites have doors that close for privacy in the sky, so grab single suites in rows 2 and 4 if you’re traveling alone. JetBlue also offers the best business class kosher meals in the contiguous US. Here is the JetBlue Mint kosher menu.

Annual fee:

Both Platinum cards come with a hefty $450 annual fee. Besides for the new improvements mentioned above, here’s what else they offer to make that fee worthwhile:

Charge card benefits:

Rather than being limited to a fixed credit line, these cards offer flexibility to spend far more, with the caveat that it needs to be paid back in full on the due date.

Airline fee refunds:

You can register here for $200 in annual fee credits for the airline of your choice. Officially you can only change the airline in January, but I’ve been able to chat and change the airline in other months as well.

If you get a Platinum card now you’ll get $400 of refunds in your first cardmembership year, $200 in 2016 and $200 in 2017.

Officially these are intended to be used for bag fees, seat upgrades, and lounge passes/memberships. However they also work for items like $100 American Airlines gift cards, and $100 United gift registry contributions.

If you have multiple primary Consumer or Business Platinum cards they can each take advantage of this annual benefit.

Gold elite status with 3 hotel chains:

Both Platinum cards offer Starwood Gold, Hilton Gold, and Marriott Gold elite status.

You can enroll online here for Hilton Gold status. You can also enroll additional cardholders for Gold status, but that needs to be done over the phone.

You need to call 800-525-3355 and select option 3 for Starwood Gold status.

Once you have Starwood Gold status you can match that online instantly to Marriott Gold status.

Hilton Gold status gets you upgrades, bonus points, 5th night free on awards, late checkout, breakfast, and bottled water. Free breakfast doesn’t usually do much for me as a kosher traveler, but we had the pleasure of staying at the Waldorf Astoria Jerusalem last year where we were treated to a fantastic daily breakfast, which is free for Hilton Gold and Diamond members. There is a mind-boggling quantity of awesome kosher food there, from dozens of daily hot dishes to hard cheeses, fresh fruits and pastries to fresh squeezed juices, as well as on-demand dishes like french toast, pancakes, waffles, and eggs. Unlimited wine, hot or cold chocolate drinks, and espresso drinks are included as well.

Starwood Gold status gets you late checkout, more points per dollar spent at SPG hotels, and a 250 point amenity on stays, even when redeeming points. Starwood elites can also register here to earn Starpoints on Delta flights on top of the regular Delta miles in addition to other benefits while Delta elites can get benefits at SPG hotels.

-Centurion lounge access:

American Express has operated Centurion lounges in Argentina, Brazil, India, and Mexico for some time.  Now they are expanding in the US market with lounges operating in Dallas, Houston, Las Vegas, LaGuardia, Miami, San Francisco, Seattle, and more to come such as Chicago and Los Angeles.

Originally the US lounges were designed for free access only for Centurion cardholders, you know them as those black cards that cost a ridiculous $2,500 per year with a $7,500 initiation fee that used to give elite status on airlines like Continental and USAirways but now is down to just Delta.

But once the Platinum card started losing airline lounges due to exclusivity with other banks AMEX opened it up to Platinum cardholders for free as well.

Primary and additional cardholders can access the lounge and they can each bring their spouse and kids into the lounge for free. Or they can bring in any 2 other people with them for free.

The lounges offer varying amenities like premium drinks, showers, and massages. And as they are staffed by AMEX you can even get help with account issues and access the lounge even if you forget your Platinum card.

-Priority Pass membership.

You can enroll here for a Priority Pass membership.

Unfortunately this membership doesn’t include any free guests, but additional Platinum cardholders can get their own free Priority Pass membership.

Lounges include the Art & Lounge in Newark which is the lounge that El Al provides for their business and first class passengers. It offers kosher food, wine, and Israeli art. In Tel Aviv you can access the Dan lounge.

See the Priority Pass site for their complete list of lounges.

Priority Pass gives access to the full network of “The Club” with 8 domestic lounges and growing.

Airspace lounges:

Currently there are Airspace lounges in Cleveland, JFK (JetBlue T5 terminal), and San Diego.

Primary and additional cardholders can access the lounge and they can each bring their spouse and kids into the lounge for free. Or they can bring in any 2 other people with them for free.

These are modern lounges with free premium coffee, bottles water, and self service soft drinks.  Additionally you and every guest also gets a gift card valid towards purchasing premium alcohol, local craft beers, cocktails, and meals.

Delta SkyClub:

You can access Delta lounges for free with a Platinum card when flying on Delta.  You don’t get any free guests, but additional Platinum cardholders can access Delta lounges for free as well.

The Delta SkyClub in JFK even sells kosher meals if you need one!

Global Entry/Pre-Check Fee Refund

It costs $85 to apply for a 5 year TSA Pre-Check membership which makes flying pleasant again. Shorter lines, no need to remove your shoes, belt, jacket, or hat. You can keep your laptop and freedom baggie with liquids in your carry-on. And you go through a good old fashioned metal detector instead of assuming the position in a nude-o-scope.  If you charge it on your Platinum card the fee will be refunded.

It costs $100 to apply for a 5 year Global Entry membership which lets you bypass the customs line. If you have Global Entry you also get TSA Pre-Check. If you charge it on your Platinum card the fee will be refunded.

You can read more more about the differences in this post.

Additional cardholders qualify for a Pre-Check or Global Entry fee refund as well.

My whole family has Global Entry and it sure makes traveling a whole lot easier!

Unlimited worldwide Boingo WiFi:

With either Platinum card you now get free unlimited Boingo Wi-Fi worldwide, perfect for avoiding confiscatory rates at airports when traveling.  Search from over 1 million hot-spots here.

Enroll for free Boingo access here.

Gogo In-Flight Wi-Fi:

With the Business Platinum card only, you get 10 annual Gogo flight passes to use on any flight with Gogo internet.

You can enroll here for your free passes.

Additional cardholders:

You can add 3 additional cardholders onto a consumer Platinum card for $175 ($58.33 per additional cardholder per year).

Additional cardholders on a business Platinum card are $300 each, though you can add additional Green cardholders with no annual fee to a business Platinum card.

Additional Platinum cardholders do get full lounge access so they will have access to Delta and Priority Pass lounges for themselves and they will be able to guest others into Airspace and Centurion lounges. They also get the Global Entry credit.

Lost Item Protection:

If you buy something on your Platinum card up to $10,000 and lose it within 90 days of purchase it will be fully covered. Many cards offer stolen item protection, but that requires a police report to be filed and often has a cap of just $1,000.

Car Rental Perks:

A 4 hour late return fee-free grace period at Hertz and fee-waived Gold Plus membership and National Executive guarantee upgrades and faster free award rentals.

The card also comes with free checked baggage insurance and it has no foreign exchange fees.  And of course it comes with all of the amazing purchase protections that other American Express cards have as well.

Business vs Consumer card:

-The consumer card’s advantages are now the 5 points per dollar on airfare and the inexpensive additional user fees.

-The business card’s advantages are now the 50% bonus points for spending $5,000+, the GoGo WiFi passes, Open Savings rebates on purchases from Fedex, HP, Hertz, and more. But the main advantage is the 50% rebate for using points for airfare.

AMEX business cards don’t appear on your credit report. That’s good for several reasons.

First of all they won’t count against your 5/24 count for opening new Chase cards. Only cards on your report that have been opened within the past 24 months count for that.

Second, when you spend money on personal cards your credit score will be hurt even if you pay your bill on time. A whopping 30% of your credit score is based on credit utilization. You can pay off your card bill before your statement is generated to avoid that, but that takes effort and laying out money well before you have to. Additionally it’s good to have the statement close with a couple dollars to show the card is active and being paid every month. On an AMEX business card it’s just not reported, so you can wait until the money is due without it having a negative effect on your score.

Third, if you close a business card it won’t ever have an effect on your score.

You may already have a business that needs a card to keep track of expenses. For example if your name is Joe Smith and you sell items online, or if you have any other side business and want a credit card to better keep track of business expenditures you can just open a business credit card for “Joe Smith Sole Proprietorship” as the business. You don’t need to file any messy government paperwork to be allowed to do that.
Just be sure to select “Sole Proprietorship” as the business type and just use your social security number in the Tax Identification Number field

So, is it all worthwhile?

The lounge and other benefits are great, but the 50% rebate on the Business Platinum card really shines.

However you’ll better off spending on cards like The Amex EveryDay Preferred Credit Card from American Express and The Amex EveryDay Credit Card from American Express to earn more points per dollar than the Platinum card.  The American Express® Premier Rewards Gold Card is a charge card like the Platinum card but earns more points on airfare, gas, and groceries than the Business Platinum card.

But having those cards and a Business Platinum card seems like a winning strategy. You’ll get lots of benefits and a great redemption rate without having to hunt for saver award space.

Will these new benefits change your mileage earning strategy?
