I’m fed up with Miles&Smiles! I signed up only because I fly Turkish a lot, but their system is horrible, I can’t search availability and I so far I couldn’t book any award flight although I have enough miles. What to do?

Answered on

Don’t worry, we’ll be there for you. Searching award availability can be a nightmare, but knowing the ins and outs of travel booking can save you a lot of trouble. Turkish Airlines is a member of Star Alliance, so you can try and use one of their partners’ sites, specifically that of United, ANA and Aeroplan. However, we can ease your life even more. You can get a travel credit card and easily redeem earned miles for any airline, not just Star Alliance. For example, the Discover it® Miles card gives you 1.5 miles on all purchases and matches the miles at the end of the first year. Easy to earn, easy to redeem.
