If you’re considering moving some Priority Club Worldwide points to your FlightFund account, now is the time to do it. Through Sept. 15, members can make the transfer at a 10,000 point to 3,000 mile exchange rate — instead of the usual 10,000 to 2,500 rate. If you are aiming for a domestic award ticket on America West, you will reap a savings of 30,000 points.
To redeem your points for FlightFund miles, call the Priority Club service center at (800) 272-9273 and ask for promotion code US01 YA703. If you are not a member of the FlightFund program, call (800) 247-5691 or enroll online at www.americawest.com.
Also, from its hub in Columbus, OH, American West will begin flying internationally to Toronto on Sept. 5. Perhaps this is a taste of things to come. All in all, not a bad award for 20,000 miles.
