Using Flying Blue Miles
Air France/KLM Flying Blue has some great sweet spots, especially if you are looking for international destinations. Good value can be had on awards, including:
- Awards between the U.S. and Mexico from 14,500 miles.
- Awards between the U.S. and North Africa from 21,500 in economy one way, and 53,000 in business class one way.
One of the best uses of Flying Blue miles is the monthly Promo Rewards promotion, which offers discounted awards across the globe. Highlights of the awards in November 2019 include:
- 50% discount on awards on routes between Chicago and Europe in business class.
- 50% discount on awards on routes between Vancouver and Europe in premium economy.
- 25% discount on awards on routes between Houston and Europe in premium economy.
If you can take advantage of the 25-50% discount with the Promo Rewards offer, an extra 20% bonus on transfers from Capital One could be quite lucrative.
Since the launch of its airline transfer partner program, Capital One has offered about a half dozen transfer bonuses. Like all points-transfer promotions, it is never worth moving points speculatively since you loose flexibility. However, if the promotion works with your travel plans, there is some excellent value to be found.
