    I think if anything this is good news for the budget traveler. How will award miles be credited on this deal? Since VX is spend-based FF program, do you get the original credit or the -$70 discount credit in the end?

    I feel some entrepreneurialism creeping up.

    Please remember me for this post when I'm a billionaire. PM me if you want in on this :)
