My parents are wanting to go to NZ in June or July of 2014 to visit family friends. I'm fairly certain they don't have one frequent flier account for either of them, so we're starting from scratch. I was thinking about having them focus on UR points (cc bonuses, both personal & business + spend) but was wondering if the two-browser trick for Citi AA cards for each of them might be a better choice. If we did the AA option + UR with the intent of moving them to AA miles, are we shooting ourselves in the foot by putting all our eggs in one basket? They will be flying out of Dallas, Austin, or possibly Houston. What would you suggest they focus on?
