Argentina, Chile and Back: An AwardTickets Success Story
Our Client’s Challenge: Insufficient points in a single reward program
- This client requested two round-trip Business Class tickets from the east coast of the USA to Buenos Aires, Argentina; returning from Santiago, Chile.
- They had 250,000 AMEX miles and 500,000 Marriott Bonvoy points.
The AwardTickets Solution: Transfer points for best value
- For the first leg, we transferred the client’s AMEX Points to Air France, to book a Delta flight from Atlanta to Buenos Aires at 72,000 miles per person. Although Delta is an AMEX partner, the miles needed were significantly higher on Delta than booking the same flight with Air France.
- For the return, we transferred 330,000 Marriott Bonvoy Points to American Airlines to obtain the 65,000 miles per person needed.
