Flash Deal Summary

Sample Savings via Starwood’s (now Marriott Points) points-to-miles transfer partnership with Korean Air: San Francisco to London for 80,000 Korean Air miles and it costs even less if you have a Starwood/Marriott account: only 65,000 Starpoints (now 195,000 Marriott Points). Delta charges 78,000 miles for economy class.

Delta charges 78,000 miles for economy class.

In other words, if you have a Starwood/Marriott card and book via Korean Air, as opposed to earning miles via mainstream ways, you’re getting a free upgrade to Business Class.

For up to four travelers (and possibly more), FCF’s research team has discovered an opportunity to save up to 255,000 miles compared to normal/everyday prices when traveling between the U.S. and Europe.

Downside: Taxes can be $1,400+ – yet relatively paltry when you think about normal Business Class fares otherwise often running $4,600+.
