For up to two travelers (and possibly more), FCF’s research team has discovered an opportunity to save up to 77% in cash OR save up to 67% in miles compared to normal / everyday prices when traveling between several U.S. cities and Asia.

Sample Savings via Starwood’s (now Marriott Points) points-to-miles transfer partnership with Asiana: Los Angeles to Tokyo for 160,000 Asiana miles and it costs even less if you have a Starwood/Marriott account: only 130,000 Starpoints (now 390,000 Marriott Points). United charges 140,000 miles for Business class.

In other words, if you have a Starwood/Marrriott card and book via Asiana, as opposed to earning miles via mainstream ways, you’re getting First Class for less than Business.


LifeMiles, a Star Alliance partner (29 airlines), is currently running a deal whereby miles can be acquired for as low as 1.4¢ each (includes taxes and processing fee), through a new, 125% bonus promo, which runs through December 9, 2018.

A similar promotion was announced in the How Most Anyone Can Get Domestic and International Business and First Class from 41% to 81% Off — please refer back for the two major benefits of the LifeMiles Miles + Money feature.

Note: Applies only to current members (so sign-in here to view promo).

Sample Savings from U.S. to Asia in First class:
The published First Class fare on Singapore’s Los Angeles – Tokyo route is $11,900 r/t; through the LifeMiles purchase and transfer strategies, you can pay $2,713 r/t (including taxes with LifeMiles loyalty program and generally costs $85 dollars), a savings of $9,187 (77%).
