I am a bit new to this department. Using some of the excellent tips from Point Hacks I have accumulated 350K Velocity points in about 18months just using a Amplify Visa and a Velocity Platinum Amex.
The end game for me is to use the points every 24 months for a trip to Europe business class.
Reading articles on Point Hacks, I am getting confused. According the points charts on VA it quotes about 130k business each way to Europe. Then if I go to the VA booking website and have a look, even 9 months out it can be quoting 500k or more each way!
How does one book and secure a business return flight to Europe with VA, Etihad or Sing air for 130Kish each way? How early do I need to call them?
Plan A would be to use points for one return fare and buy a second for my wife, therefore gain lots of status credits and miles in order to go again later.
thanks for the advice and a great website.
