I’m just about done meeting my minimum spending on that credit card. Between those points and flash sales on IHG points like this one, I’m all set to make next year an IHG one!

I also like that the 75% bonus kicks in starting at a 30,000 miles purchase.

Did you know that Air France is one of the largest airlines in the world? It is part of the Air France – KLM group and was a founding member of the SkyTeam airline alliance. What is Flying Blue? Flying Blue is the loyalty program for Air France and KLM, as well as a handful of other airlines. I was reminded of this today and reminded of something else as well! We’ve only got a few more days until the offer to buy Flying Blue miles with a 100% bonus ends. This offer expires on September 25, 2017.  That brings the standard price of 3.28 cents per mile down to 1.64 cents per mile.
