M² No Annual Fee Episode 69: Partner Awards & More

We’re back with a great talk between Robert and I on the following:

0:22 Follow Up: Alaska Status Match (last discussed Ep 68)

06:13 Amex Churnability and Employee Offers

  • Cards used to be much more churnable
  • Popups abound now. Wish there was a way to get rid of them by force
  • 15k for $4k is the new thing
  • Business Platinum (link)
  • Business Gold (link)
  • Blue Business Plus (link)
  • Be sure to use the correct link for the card you’re adding it to, data points say using a mismatch won’t work.

9:39 Main Topic: Partner Awards

  • JetBlue/Qatar/Hawaiian
  • ITA/Virgin Atlantic/FlyingBlue
  • Alaska Partner Award Consolidated Charts
  • Discuss: The lottery element in these, the lack of “wide open” availability, and the eternally evolving complexity of it all

22:54 Tip of the Week: Book JAL Premium Economy w/Alaska Miles

  • Reasonable in miles and only $20-$55 in fees (no fuel!)
