  1. What do you think is the best program to dump miles if you redeem for a travel package after the 4/30 50% US Airways bonus? All things considered. I mix domestic and intl travel.

  2. @MSPDeltaDude – All depends on your airline status and plans.

    I was impressed how many places I could visit in Europe last month for 50,000 miles on an American Airlines 40K off-peak economy award (SF)-Berlin) and one 10K intra-Europe award (Berlin-Helsinki, Finalnd). I also got to walk around Zurich, Oslo and London and spend the night at nice hotels at the last two cities on 20 to 23 hour layovers.

  3. But, AA isn’t a partner are they?

  4. @MSPDeltaDude – you are right about that. American Airlines and Marriott Rewards are still having a time out.

  5. @MSPDeltaDude – though you could redeem into US Airways and wait for the AA merger to progress until you use the miles.
