Holy moly: Iberia is honoring it. 90K Avios now ~$260, and it’s for real

Last night, we published a post about what I thought would be the absolute deal of the year if it were honored — though I was admittedly cautious in warning readers that it might not be honored as written beause it just seemed too generous. It turns out Iberia is going to honor this promotion. If you got in last night at $18 per flight, congrats — the holidays came early for you. If you did…

Google Flights improvement: filter by overhead bin access

A reader on Twitter has alerted us that Google Flights has added an awesome new filtering capability that is going to make shopping for flights much less painful for those irritated by basic economy and low-cost-carriers that display prices that don’t include a carry-on bag: a flighter to show flights that include overhead bin access. It looks like it works really well — even knowing to include the carry-on fee for Spirit so that you can compare…

Should you invest in Starpoints now?

Starwood is once again offering 35% off on the purchase of SPG Starpoints through July 20th. This means that it’s possible to buy Starpoints for 2.275 cents each.  And, since Starpoints convert to Marriott Rewards points 1 to 3, that’s equivalent to buying Marriott Rewards points for 0.75 cents each.  Considering that Marriott sells points for 1.25 cents each, this is a relative bargain. But… The fact that Starpoints / Marriott Rewards points are available for purchase at…

Aeroplan newest transfer partner for Arrival Premier

amex offers

Barclays has added a new transfer partner for the Arrival Premier: Aeroplan. This is an interesting addition, and probably not in the way that Barclays would have hoped. Considering the fact that Aeroplan will cease to be the loyalty program of Air Canada in 2020, and there are cards that earn more Aeroplan miles with a lower fee on the market, adding Aeroplan as a transfer partner isn’t much of an improvement. However, on the bright…

Which airlines are best for Marriott Travel Packages?

Yesterday, Greg wrote about the potential for a huge win with Marriott Travel Packages. Of course, we don’t know that there will be a huge win — it’s just potential. Still, I know many readers are probably looking at these packages and wondering which airlines are the best transfer partners. While United offers the most miles at 132K with the largest (best-value) packages, they don’t necessarily offer the best value in terms of award pricing.…
