I have Gold Delta CC with miles I seem can not use. The first problem was that I couldn’t find an award chart to see lowest price. Then I tried to book an award but system gave me an error. When I finally managed to go through, time and dates where not suitable for me so I had to change my plans. And the worst thing was the fee. Never thought it could be such a bad experience booking a single award. My question is: is there a non-Delta credit card that will give me awards with Delta?

Banks issue travel credit cards that are not tied to any airline but still allow to earn miles and redeem them for airline tickets or other travel expenses.

Had United card until recently and was unable to book a single flight using my United miles. Tried flexible dates – no available seats, tried to book far in advance – no available seats. Got frustrated and just closed the card. Now I’m looking for a card that can really give me a ticket for miles. Can you help?

However, unfortunately, such situations like yours occur, which is a great minus of the frequent flyer miles, and it makes airline credit cards useless. ... Continue reading

I had 78,000 miles expire on United. Called their customer service and no help at all. Never received any notice of expiration by email or phone. Sooo frustrated right now. Any thoughts on how to get them back?

Who is the Delta Reserve card for?? I can’t think of a reason to justify the $450 annual fee.

Why can’t I use Emirates miles for flights on other airlines?

Answered on

You can actually use Emirates miles on a number of partner airlines, including Alaska, JetBlue and Virgin America, but the number is really limited and you won't find a major US airline on the list. We would advise you to use Emirates miles on Emirates flights as the transfers are rarely 1:1 and there's... Continue reading

Applied for the Citi AA card just because I liked the “first checked bag free” feature for domestic AA flights, but now the card is way too expensive for me. Actually it’s my first airline credit card. Now I’m thinking of getting another card that I could use with AA, but can’t find anything good. Can you help?
