One vacationer took a travel package to Asia and the South Pacific, and paid only half of the 1000+ cost by earning travel miles. To start, the travel package, alone for those that signed on by the approved date offered 200,000 bonus miles. In breaking down the award miles, the vacationer found that over 7000 miles were accrued on the San Francisco to Beijing leg of the journey and even more on the Beijing back to San Francisco part of the trip. Some of the accrued miles were also for being a member of American Airlines Executive Elite Platinum status. The traveler acquired more discounts and pluses by using a Citi card and a Chase Sapphire Reserve Card. AA Business Extra offers a program also entitling travelers to spend a little less. These options are not always available and some may be disappearing, it’s always important to read the fine print and book travel withing the time periods of the program.

“The already lucrative 20,000 bonus miles promotion for travel packages to Asia and the South Pacific make for an excellent year-end mileage run if you’re able to book inexpensive special fares. As can be seen above, I earned 1,371 EQDs from a flights and hotel package that cost less than half of that “spend.””
