    Hello,

    I have a plan to go back to Japan to see my family from the middle of dec to jan. I am desperately in need of advises or any tips to which credit cards to apply in order to earn TWO airlines tickets to Japan.

    Let me briefly explain about my situation
    – Need TWO round tickets from MCO to NGS or FUK as the final destination.
    – We would like to stop by tokyo, kyoto, osaka , and nara (with miles if possible…).
    – I have 780 credit score, but my sister has only 630 credit score.
    -I only have one amex (cash reward), and no chase card. My sister has one chase cash back reward card.
    – it is probably possible to use $5000-6000 within 3-4 months.

    Could someone PLEASE advise me which card to apply and which airlines to use to go to japan?

    thanks,

    [USER=5862]@sakura[/USER], I hate to say it but it might be best to check out cash back cards to see what you can use to get a cheap cash fare. Traveling during peak holiday season can be a challenge when trying to use miles. You could look at something like the Chase Reserve/Preferred or Citi Premier that have some flexibility to transfer miles but also use the points to book travel at a discounted rate.

    are you saying that it is hard to find the seats with milges? ive been checking on it, and i still see available seats

    Yes, I’m saying it will be hard to find seats with miles during the holidays, especially since you are ~three months out from actually having the miles. Certainly doesn’t mean that you won’t be able to find tickets, just that the probability is lower.
