Star Alliance Program

Star Alliance Program

    I just found this site and I’m hoping someone can help me. My son and I are traveling from SFO-Rwanda in a few weeks on Ethiopian and I’m trying to decide which Star Alliance partner I should join to get credit for my miles. Roundtrip miles are about 15k and we’re flying economy code V. We usually take one international trip a year and 2-3 domestic flights. Domestically we fly Alaska or Jet Blue. Not a big fan of UA.

    Tough to make a recommendation given your parameters but:

    United – While you’re not a fan, crediting flights here and if you have a premium Chase credit card earning UR points, you can redeem UA miles for flights on StarAlliance carriers.

    Air Canada – Good place to credit if you have Amex MR points that can be transferred. You get access to Star Alliance awards but there are fuel surcharges on some partners and there are reports that they’re blocking some airlines.

    Avianca – If you can participate in their mileage sales, it’s a good place to credit your miles.

    Singapore – Great for premium cabin SQ awards but miles do have a hard expiration date of 36 months from when they’re earned or credited to the account. However, all major transferable rewards currencies can be transferred here so miles are easy to obtain.

    Unfortunately, I dont believe any StarAlliance program partners with Alaska or jetBlue. (SQ partners with jetBlue for reciprocal earning but not redemption)
