Help with credit card travel miles question
« on: May 07, 2016, 04:16:20 PM »
Hello,

I'm somewhat familiar with the idea of credit card churning and have collected a few bonuses myself over the last couple of years to help with airfare costs. My wife and I are planning a trip to Africa next summer, and I'm trying to get a little more involved in order to shoot for free tickets if possible since we've got some time. However, I'm having a little trouble getting used to navigating the maze of which points transfer to which programs.

Does anyone know of a good site where you can ask a very specific question concerning route, current cards we have, etc., who could help map out the best path to help reach a specific goal? I posted a question in the forum at One Mile at a Time as a start.

Thanks for your help.

Flyertalk is also a very useful resource (it's not mileage specific, but it's got everything).

+1 on Flyertalk and Google Flights might be of help.
