Last month I promised that I would share some ridiculous itineraries with you to show you just how powerful points and miles can be. Looking at these itineraries is like window shopping for me, I get excited just thinking about the possibilities.
Today I found an itinerary that was particularly lucrative. In fact, the savings are some of the best I have ever seen.
So rather than daydreaming about how cool it would be to take this trip, I decided to book it.
These are the types of spontaneous decisions that you can make when you learn how to earn more than one million frequent flyer miles every year.
So without further ado, here is a look at my $24,368.80 itinerary to Thailand for $166.80.
This is a copy of my receipt for a Business Class flight from Columbus, OH to Chaing Mai, Thailand. I paid 80,000 United miles and $28.50 for a business class ticket that routes through Toronto, Copenhagen, and Bangkok.
