Sample Savings via Starwood’s points-to-miles transfer partnership with Japan Airlines: New York to Sao Paulo for 65,000 Japan Airline miles and it costs even less if you have a Starwood account: only 55,000 Starpoints. American charges 60,000 miles for economy.

In other words, if you have a Starwood card and book via Japan Airlines, as opposed to earning miles via mainstream ways, you’re getting a free upgrade.

Disclaimer:

Everybody knows how frequently airfares change (some estimates claim that there are up to 500,000 fare changes daily). Because that’s a few too many for First Class Flyer to keep up with, FCF cannot guarantee that all fares discussed will be available when you go to make a booking. Also, for the sake of quick and easy “executive summary” format, all fare rules and restrictions can’t possibly be included. Fares quoted usually include the average taxes and fees for the routes in the chart.
