Deals On Flights To Europe And Alaska, 50% British Airways Transfer Bonus And Starbucks For Life

a close up of a keyboard

Here’s what I’m reading about in the world of miles and points:

Cheap Flights of the Day: 

$550 flights to Vienna.  Only a couple of hour train ride from Salzburg.  We just got back from a family trip there and it’s one of the most picturesque places I can recall visiting.

If you’re staying in the US, there are $111 tickets to Miami, or you could hit Alaska for $132 roundtrip.  And, $500 to Hawaii from the east coast.

In Case You Missed It: 

American Airlines is now selling cheap upgrades to everyone.  What’s next?

Uber bails on China after investing billions to conquer the market.

20% bonus on transfers from SPG to American Airlines through September 14th.

You, too, can spend a night in an abandoned Russian mine.  Stay tuned to find out if it’s a good idea or not.

Win Starbucks free for life. That’s a lot of caffeine.

And, on the subject of coffee, here’s some detail on the new Starbucks/Lyft parternship.  I don’t see this as lucrative enough to change my behavior in any way, but it beats a sharp stick in the eye.

Auction Ending Soon: 2 nights at luxury hotel in Paris for roughly $150

Luckiest man in the world survives plane crash and then wins the lottery.

After the debacle that grounded hundreds of Delta flights and screwed up thousands of travelers, their CEO was asked if he would consider reinstating policies that would help ease disasters like this for their travelers.  The answer was a pretty convincing no.  Delta believes they run a superior operation to their competitors.  And, in most cases, they do.  The recent debacle was an easy example of one where they didn’t.  And, they still haven’t figured out how to control the weather.  But, that doesn’t seem to motivate Delta to give their customers more options when problems happen.  And, that stinks.

50% transfer bonus from American Express Membership Rewards to British Airways.  I feel like I mention this frequently, but it bears repeating.  If you’re not a frequent traveler and you’re looking for ways to maximize your miles, transfer bonuses like these can be a great tool.  That doesn’t mean you should just transfer without a plan.  The benefit of Membership Rewards is the flexibility to move the points to where you want, when you want (from their list of partners).  If travel on BA is in your future, transfer now.

More improvements to a key tool for searching inventory on United Airlines.
