Direct Flight to Cordoba, Argentina that You Can Book for 30,000 Delta Miles

Cheapest Flights and Awards To & From Cuba

I'm considering a trip to Cuba in April because I fall under one of the 12 categories of Americans that now have a general license to visit Cuba: journalistic activity. (See the US State Department's information on visiting Cuba. This post is not suggesting you should.)

I've been looking into the cheapest ways to get to Cuba with miles or cash.

Best Ways to Get from South America to Europe

I'm intrigued by flights and awards that don't involve America. If there's a cool award to get from Australia to SE Asia, that can be integral to a longer, better, and cheaper trip.

My two favorite continents to explore are South America and Europe.

The Coolest Thing You Can Do with 60k Miles

Last week I urged people to be realistic with their miles and listed The Easiest Places to Get with Miles. Today I'm telling you to dream big and to look to do things with miles that you couldn't easily or cheaply do without miles.

For instance, for 60,000 miles, you can book yourself a "triangle trip" that lets you practice your Spanish in Chile and Spain.

How Long Does It Take to Transfer ThankYou Points to Flying Blue Miles

Last week, Citi announced that ThankYou Points are now transferable to Air France/KLM Flying Blue miles.

Gold Mine Award Space to All of Argentina

Edit 9/3/14: Readers are reporting that Air France and Delta cannot ticket all the space shown on airfrance.us. There may be some sort of glitch. I'll try to get to the bottom of this.

Award space is wide open in economy and business class between the United States and Argentina for the next 11 months, including award space over the peak December to March summer period.

You can book this award space on wide-open Aerolineas Argentinas flights with your Delta or Flying Blue miles.

Do This to Avoid an Error When Transferring ThankYou Points

I got an error when I tried to transfer ThankYou Points to Air France Flying Blue miles. A Citi representative called me to let me know that my transfer would be cancelled, and I could re-initiate at my leisure.

The problem was that I had put my 10 digit Flying Blue number in when asked my Flying Blue number.
