The Capital One Combo: One Of The Best Tools For Earning Miles

I’ve been a huge fan of card combinations that can really sweep you off your feet at the ability to rapidly earn tons of points without chasing a bonus. Combos like the Citi Premier® Card (Note from the editor: Citi Premier® Card is no longer available to new applicants) and the Citi® Double Cash Card, or the Chase Sapphire Reserve® and the Chase Freedom Unlimited®.

For the past few years, the Chase Sapphire Reserve® and Chase Freedom Unlimited® has been my absolute go to combo.

Hurry: Last Chance to Use US Airways Miles to Book EVA Airlines Award Space to Asia

You have six days left to use your US Airways miles to book EVA Airlines flights through April 14, 2015.

EVA Airlines is a Taiwanese airline that flies to Los Angeles, San Francisco, New York, and Seattle with incredible award space on a top-notch flat bed business class product.

Trip Report: EVA Air Business Class from Los Angeles to Taipei

I recently had to take a quick trip to Bangladesh. While searching the United site, I found some good space on Thai, EVA, United and Asiana. All the airlines have flat bed seats, but I leaned toward EVA Air because they joined the Star Alliance two months ago, so I hadn't yet had a chance to fly them.

EVA flies the same flat bed business class seats as Cathay Pacific and the new American Air 777-300ER, which are widely considered the best business class seats in the world.

The Best Business Class Award Space to Asia This Summer

EVA Airlines, a Taiwanese carrier, joined the Star Alliance this week. EVA Airlines flies from Taiwan to six North American cities:

New York
Los Angeles
San Francisco

And from Taiwan, you can connect all over Asia.
