Skift: "Uber users in France and the Netherlands can now earn points for flights with Air France-KLM."

"Residents and visitors in France and the Netherlands can now get one mile with the airline company’s Flying Blue loyalty program for every €1 spent on Uber rides.

Earning Avios On Emirates Flights Comes To An End

July 12, 2024 at 06:03 EDT By Spencer Howard

I know many people only earn points and miles via credit cards these days, but it's always a good idea to be aware of clever opportunities to earn. Unfortunately, in this case, we're looking at the end of one such opportunity.

Head for Points flagged that you can no longer earn Avios on Emirates flights marketed by Qantas.

"Qantas was the only oneworld airline where you could earn Avios and BA tier points if you travelled on a codeshare flight operated by a non-oneworld airline." Unfortunately, the terms have changed and no longer allow this.

New Lifemiles x Gol Smiles Partnership

July 12, 2024 at 05:54 EDT By Spencer Howard

View From The Wing flags that you can now transfer lifemiles to Gol Smiles at a ratio of 1:3.

"This creates interesting arbitrage opportunities – with occasional American Airlines flyers having the ability to move points into a Star Alliance program (Lifemiles) and occasional Star customers being able to credit to LifeMiles and have the opportunity to redeem with American. This is in some ways similar to the role that Aer Lingus played as it partnered with both United and British Airways."

Chase Sapphire Preferred Bonus Issues For Recent Applicants

June 28, 2024 at 16:23 EDT By Spencer Howard

Travel on Points: "There is a Sapphire Preferred bonus issue that recent applicants are running into. From what we can tell, this appears to be a glitch in the matrix, on Chase's end. It also appears to be happening to people who signed up for the card over the last month, likely when the increased offer was still around and kicking. If you are being told that you are not eligible for the Chase Sapphire Preferred welcome offer, or you don't see a bonus offer tracker, then know you are not alone."
