I've screwed up before in probably not getting the best award booking deal I could when I've booked award travel before, so I was hoping to get advice this time. I have 77,000 points in Chase UR, 50k in US Airways, 25k in Delta, 50k IHG, 7,000 Barclay, and 30k in AA (Are USA and AA pooling their miles in showing your balance? I thought I only had 25k USA miles). I've started going through each to find the best travel option during the overly expensive Christmas (dec 19ish to dec 27thish - dates are sorta flexible). So far the lowest I found was 41k southwest points with 1 plane change on the way there. And a similar trip on Frontier (but Southwest beats it for the free bags). But I'm going to keep researching! Hoping to grab some tips from you all as well.
