Google Flights Hack To Show Flight Point Costs

Points Path is a free, low-effort tool that enhances your Google Flights search results.

The browser extension automatically populates your Google Flights searches with points costs for those exact flights. The caveat is that it currently only supports one-way and round-trip flights for American, Delta, and United.

While it’s not the cheapest or most lucrative way to find award redemptions, it’s great if you’re flush with points and want to book award flights with the least effort.

Read more about the features and install the free extension here.

Two Improved AMEX Gold Offers - 10x Dining & 20% back on dining

Both the AMEX Gold signup and referral bonuses have been improved.

Those who refer new customers will earn an additional 10x on dining for 3 months, on top of the original 10-25k points per referral. The 10x applies on up to $25k of spending, allowing up to 250k AMEX points.

For those applying for a new AMEX Personal Gold card, the bonuses are:

  • 75-90k points for $6k spend in 6 months

  • 20% back in statement credits on restaurant purchases worldwide for the first 3 months, up to $50

The improved referral offer is showing an end date of 05/22/24.

The 90k offer would be roughly an all-time high, making it a no-brainer.

For more info, here’s my link (referral). If it’s not a 75-90k, definitely search online for a higher offer link.

Until 02/29, use code SPLASH to receive 20-30% off base fares for flights between 03/19 to 05/22.

If you’ve already booked flights, check the rates in a separate search for rebooking opportunities. Full details here.

From 02/26 to 03/15, AMEX has a 15% transfer bonus to Avianca LifeMiles.

LifeMiles transfers are almost always instantaneous so it’s best to only transfer if you have specific redemptions in mind.

Here are some sweet spot redemptions to maximize your LifeMiles value:

Lufthansa First Class To Europe

Unfortunately, Lufthansa has only been releasing close-in availability at the last second (e.g. 7-10 days before flight dates) so you’ll need to be extremely flexible with your plans to snatch these.

However, if you’re able to find and make these flights work, they’re insane value with relatively lower surcharges.

I did a quick search and found an itinerary on 03/02 from MUC to BOS for 87k points and $140.40 in surcharges.

Swiss Airlines Business Class to Europe

If you’re searching far enough in advance, it’s possible to find business-class awards for only 63k miles and $61 in fees.

I just ran a quick search and found 03/26 from SFO to ZRH:
