Selling Amex Reward Points

American Express Membership Reward Points are a great way to travel using your own hard earned points. American Express Membership Rewards is well known for being one of the top credit card reward programs on the market. But what can one do with so many points and no seats? Many AMEX account holders end up selling American Express Points due to lack of reward seat availability. We have good news! Work with the top mileage broker in the industry,!

Many online buyers offer a mere fraction of a cent per point. For example, they convert 100,000 AMEX points into $500-$750 in gift cards. Some AMEX account holders trade their points for gift cards, then turn around and sell those cards for a fraction of the actual value. This process is very time consuming and can take a load out of your pocket.

We have the best solution out there. guarantees top value when selling your American Express Reward Points. Located on the right side of the screen, submit a request to sell your points and make your money work for you.

Singapore and Virgin Australia

Singapore Airlines and Virgin Australia enhanced their partnership by launching a new feature that enables KrisFlyer and Velocity Frequent Flyer members to convert points and miles between the two programs. This new (and pretty unique) conversion capability offers frequent flyers greater access to upgrades and award seats across the combined network of the two airlines.

Delta One-Way Awards and Improved Search Engine for 2015!

Delta one-way awards and improved search engine for 2015!

Delta does allow one-way awards, but only for the same price as a round-trip. Getting value from the SkyMiles program in general has been difficult for award travelers.

At least some of this will changes in 2015 when Delta makes one-way awards available for half the mileage of a round-trip. This will suddenly make it possible to use SkyMiles in combination with tickets from revenue bookings or other award programs. In addition, Delta has already introduced a new award search calendar. Whereas the previous award calendar produced results bordering on fictitious, and calculated mileage costs somewhat randomly, the new award charts are a largely accurate representation of what can be booked, at least among the partners that can be booked online.

The changes aren’t entirely positive, as Delta is eliminating stopovers on award flights. Awards with stopovers can still be booked through the end of the year, but only by reaching a telephone representative who is willing to help.

US Airways Promotion

The US Airways BarclayCard 50,000 Miles Sign-Up Offer

For the past year, the US Airways Premier MasterCard has witnessed quite a number of sign-up bonuses. And this has ranged between 30,000 and 40,000 miles.
However, they’ve just increased their sign up bonus of 50,000 miles after the first purchase alongside a payment of $89 annual fees.
These miles are usually awarded whenever you make the purchase, thus the billing cycle ought to post quickly enough if you request for the card to be rushed.
The US Airways miles are pretty valuable, but you can still obtain them directly from US Airways at 1.9 cents for every piece. This can even go as low as 1.1 cents if you purchase them via their occasional 100 percent Share Miles Promotions.
At the valuation of 1.9 cents, the 50,000 miles is worth $950. Now, subtract the annual fee and you still remain with $861 in value, without considering the other benefits, which include:

• Limited Time Offer: here you earn 50,000 bonus miles once you’ve made your first purchase alongside the $89 annual fee.
• Free first checked bag on your eligible bags, and up to four friends (or companion) on domestic operated flights.
• A one companion certificate for up to two guests, who’ll travel with you, but on a US Airways-operated flight at $99 each, inclusive of taxes and fees.
• You get the priority to board via Zone 2 on US Airways-operated flights
• When you book travels through (or US Airways Reservations), then the miles are redeemable for award.
• When you purchase 2 miles for every $1 you spend on American Airlines and US Airways, and 1 miles for every $1 elsewhere, then you get to earn miles on each of the purchases.
• Receive 25 percent savings on eligible American Airlines and US Airways in-flight purchases.

The cardholders of the US Airways MasterCard also get to enjoy the following:
A 25 percent in-flight savings on beverage, food, and headset purchases on American Airlines and US Airways. This appears as a credit on your statement.
Apart from earning 2X miles for each dollar you’ll spend on US Airways, you’ll also get to earn the same on American Airlines flights.

Some of the aforementioned benefits are expected to change in 2015, especially the companion ticket and the 5,000 mile discount awards. But don’t you worry; there is still enough time to get value of them this years before they expire.
The card will remain even after the merger between American Airlines and US Airlines is complete. The same goes for the co-branded card American AAdvantage Aviator.
Therefore, it is advisable that you signup now and take advantage of the offers.
