Let’s face it. Redeeming miles for upgrades and free flights is harder than ever these days. So much so that it feels like winning a lottery when you do. But airlines don’t want you to hoard miles. That’s why merchandise reward options on many airline programs are now better than ever.
Here’s a quick sampling: A 2.5 hour luxury spa treatment at ESPA spa through Air Baltic, a 94-bottle temperature controlled wine cellar at United, a champagne weekend at a country manor in Sweden at SAS, and the ultimate indulgence, a 007 James Bond Experience through Etihad complete with trips to Monaco and Moscow (stay in the same hotel suites as 007), a private driving lesson with an ex-Formula 1 driver, and a high-speed boat chase (seriously).
Simply put, loyal road warriors deserve the best rewards. That’s why I’m excited to announce that you can now use miles to get MOVE Mobile Closet at United MileagePlus,SAS, Air Baltic, and Etihad Airways.
