I Just Spent 35k Miles for a Flat Bed to Southern South America

Last year I opened an Asiana Visa Signature Card for a very specific reason: to fly flat bed Business Class to "Latin America 2" (Southern South America) for 35,000 miles. I spent $3,000 on the card to unlock the 30k Asiana mile bonus, earned 3k points for the spending it took to get there, and then spent a final $2k on the card to reach a balance of 35,000 Asiana miles.

Anatomy of an Award: Lufthansa First Class Europe to USA for 40,000 Points

I'm mentally preparing for the Cigar Room, bubble bath, "First Class" stamped butter, Porsche rides, and the rest of the Lufthansa First Class Terminal and First Class experience because I just booked Lufthansa First Class from Zagreb to Washington-Dulles for 50,000 Asiana miles + $442.

This month I'll get to spend a day in Munich at Oktoberfest with my sister and then luxuriously fly back to the United States.

What You Need to Do Now to Book Lufthansa First Class Next Month for 40k Points

Next month I want to fly Lufthansa First Class from the United States to Europe, like I did a few years ago, because I love the Lufthansa First Class Terminal in Frankfurt, the luxury of sitting in the nose of a 747-8, and the onboard food and drinks.

But I want to do it smartly. Instead of paying 110,000 United miles one way, I want to pay 40,000 Starpoints.

Pokemon GO Launched in 26 European Countries: How to Catch ‘Em All with Miles

Unless you live under a rock, you've probably heard about the phenomenon called Pokemon GO. It's creating quite a stir as people run around like chickens with their heads cut off trying to bag rare Pokemon. Even if you don't play video games, it's probably caught your attention in some way or another as the application has more users than Twitter, and more hours of engagement by users than Facebook.

Cheapest Way to Fly Lufthansa First Class: 40k Points + $203 Europe to USA

Forget paying 110,000 United miles one way for Lufthansa First Class. You can book the same flight for 40,000 points + $203 (and there is even a way to avoid the $203.)

Lufthansa First Class flying from Europe to the United States is a fantastic product.

The onboard First Class product is solid--a step above American carriers and a step below Asian and Middle Eastern carriers.

And the ground experience in Frankfurt is my favorite in the world.
