While you can simply use Point.me as a search tool / availability checker, you can also integrate it with your loyalty accounts so that Point.me will narrow down the award searches to the points that you actually have.
As Point.me puts it in their press release:
“BILT brings interesting possibilities to the points game game as a transfer of both American and United Airlines, as well as loyalty favorites like Aeroplan and Avios.
With the addition of BILT Rewards, point.me now supports all the major US credit card programs, including American Express Membership Rewards, Chase Ultimate Rewards, Citi ThankYou, Capital One, and Brex. Now no matter what card you’re using, point.me can help you find better flights, for fewer points.”
While Chase already has United as a partner, Bilt Rewards is the only bank currency that transfers to American Airlines – so this does open up some new possibilities.
If you aren’t already familiar with Point.me, I suggest you read my intro article on Point.me here – this includes how exactly to use my 1 month for $1 deal..
If you are familiar but just haven’t tried it yet, you can access the promo deal I worked out with them just by going to Point.me here and then using code MILESTALK for your first month for a buck.
And if this post helped you, please consider sharing it!
You can find credit cards that best match your spending habits and bonus categories at Your Best Credit Cards.
