I am a member of Miles&Smiles, but the miles from flights accumulate very slowly. I’m also member of TrueBlue and SkyMiles. I have a bunch of miles on each of the programs, but I have no idea how to combine them or redeem for one flight. I can’t collect enough for a flight on any of them. Maybe you can help?

It would if Turkish Airlines partnered with Delta and JetBlue, but unfortunately it doesn’t. Turkish Airlines is a member of Star Alliance, meaning that you can redeem earned miles on any of Star Alliance members, such as Air Canada, Asiana and United. That said – rejoice, you can earn and redeem miles easier than that. Get a travel credit card and live on easy street – the best card for such purposes is the Discover it® Miles. It lets you earn 1.5 miles per dollar and matches all the earned miles at the end of the first year (provided you are a new cardmember). Imagine the prospects! Miles will accumulate faster from all your purchases, and whatever you earn you’ll get twice more. Besides, you can redeem earned miles for a travel credit and fly any airline.
