Quick Thoughts

Some of the discounts here could be useful, although the appeal of many of them will be limited due to current COVID travel restrictions. For example, more than half the Business Class routes involve travel between the US and Japan and travel to Japan for tourism isn’t currently allowed.

Some of the domestic pricing could be more useful seeing as some of the routes are discounted by up to 30%. That can be made even better by taking advantage of the current 15% bonus when transferring Amex Membership Rewards to LifeMiles. That transfer bonus ends tomorrow (September 30) though, so there’s not much time left to take advantage of that, although this LifeMiles award sale is valid on reservations made through October 11.

One Mile At A Time has also partnered with LifeMiles to offer a 150% bonus when buying miles, meaning you can buy them for 1.32cpm. Buying enough miles for a one-way Star Alliance award flight between Houston and Miami would therefore cost you $92.40 seeing as they’re pricing at 7,000 LifeMiles with this promotion.

However, before buying miles or transferring Membership Rewards, be sure to check cash prices. When picking a random date in November for flights from IAH to MIA, you could travel for only $49 with both United and American Airlines. With United that’s traveling in Basic Economy, but even regular Economy is only $89. American Airlines is even better because their $49 fare is in Main Cabin. Transferring or buying miles for that route on those dates would therefore be poor value.
