You may have dreamed about flying on Etihad–one of the world’s most luxurious airlines–but thought it was out of reach. Until now, the only way to book EY award seats was with EY Guest or AAdvantage points, which you could only earn by flying and could not transfer credit card points. Just last week, American Express announced a new partnership with Etihad Guest, which means you can now transfer your Amex points to your EY account! Don’t have one? Sign up today and plan your next trip on this 5-star airline.
See the article below for details and links to Etihad and American Express so you can take advantage of this fantastic program! Learn more

Award programs are notorious for changing rules and devaluing miles. Aeroplan recently made changes to their award chart, increasing miles needed for routes between the USA/Canada to Europe and South America. On the bright side, they changed their “round trip” rule and now allow one-way reward flights between any regions. Great news if you are traveling one way and your trip doesn’t include the US or Canada. Aeroplan is still a great program to use as you can use your miles for any Star Alliance partner.
AA is following suit by changing their awards chart in March. While it’s not all bad news, there are definitely some advantages to booking some award flights now, before the cost goes up. While some routes are actually going down, other routes (USA to Asia, Europe and the South Pacific) are increasing. American Airlines has a pretty friendly change policy, and that will remain the same, so if you’re thinking about planning a trip, book now and you should be able to change dates later without incurring change fees and mileage increases. Make sure to check out the fine print before you book.
Even if you missed booking with Aeroplan before December, the Points Guy gives some great tips on how to get great flights. For details on the changes to Aeroplan and AAdvantage programs, read these articles:
