Flying to Thailand, one flight 18 hours, another 15 hours, we definitely need upgraded on those!
I was wondering about upgrades I usually save my miles for a free ticket we are going to Ireland at the end of the month how do we go about using miles to upgrade? We are flying Continental and we already have purchased our trip, do you know if its too late?

Oh no its definitely not too late! On continental you can do it up to 24 hours before departure. We often even buy miles to use for upgrades cause it's cheaper than paying for a business/first class ticket. I think Continental actually allows you to do it online. The number of miles you needs depends on what fare class your tickets were booked in. So if you bought a full fare ticket (highest price & refundable) you need 10,000 miles for each ticket to upgrade to Ireland, if you have lower fare class (discount price & non-refundable) then you need 20,000 miles each.

Every airline has air miles. Some call them something different to fit in w/ their name, but all have miles. You get miles for the miles you travel w/ them and can use them towards free tickets, upgrades, shops, hotels, restaurants, and can be used to buy passes to that airlines lounge in the airports. You can also buy miles for yourself or transfer miles.

 

Its a global thing hun!

 

For example i can get miles for my united air mileage or use my united miles on any of the following airlines:

 

ADRIA Airways

Lufthansa

Air Canada

SAS

Air China

Shanghai Airlines

Air New Zealand

Singapore Airlines

ANA

South African Airways

Asiana

Spanair

Austrian Airlines Group

Swiss International Air Lines

BLUE1

TAP Portugal

bmi

THAI

CROATIA Airlines

Turkish Airlines

EgyptAir

United

LOT Polish Airlines

US Airways

Air Miles is a card in Canada that doesnt apply to just one airline. You can only earn the miles but saying grocery shopping at certain stores that participate in the program every $20 in groceries you buy you get 1 Air Mile. we cant buy extra airmiles in this program and it can be so hard to find the places to try let the points build up. I was just confused if it was also American for the Air Mile program, but now I get what you are talking about, something like Aeroplan miles I guess.

CaboBride,

Yes...it's the actual air miles program that I was talking about!

And aeroplan is the miles program the Air Canada uses!

West Jet actually uses the air miles (blue card!) program!

 

It's so confusing!! There are so many rewards programs out there!!! LOL

I know even some banks offer travel miles (not to be confused with Air Miles or Aeroplan!) lol

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
