Using Chase United miles for Christmas travelling
Hi, my husband and I both have the Chase United credit card. I accumulate thousands of miles using the card for my business expenses. We are a family of five and we normally travel for Christmas and New Year to Portugal to visit our family. This a very complicated time to use the miles, and we always have to use about 60,000 miles per person for each ticket. Not to mention that not all flights are available. Is there a way to spend less miles per person?
60,000 miles per person is the lowest possible amount for Economy to Europe, so that part is normal! If you can plan 11 months out, or can change your dates around a bit the week of departure, you might be able to get at least a couple of those tickets in business class.
Read over the beginners guide, but sounds like you’re on the right track — award space is complicated that time of year.
