    Just wondering how many JMB miles you spent in 2010.

    Thanks to the extra upgrade points, I only spent 27,500 JMB miles last year to upgrade my LAX-NRT/HND-HKG flights.

    I didn't spend a single point (I managed to wrangle a AUS$700 Biz ticket to LAX and a US$300 from JFK -> LHR and another AUS$700 Biz ticket from LHR -> HKG -> MLB). So at least I have a (semi) healthy point balance to start this year!
    Goal is to get 'free' flights from LHR -> MLB (with 2-stops) in Jan 2012. :)

    Um...that's great and welcome to the JAL Forum, Nicole Blaess-Smith!

    I meant to ask how many JMB miles people spent but I guess you answer is still zero in this case :p

    OT: How did you score so many cheap tickets :eek:

    Whoops! Sorry, still learning about how to use forums and was just searching 'Newest threads' ^^;;;;

    I found the JFK -> LHR flight through a student travel broker in the US and was lucky enough to be able to change it (for a $35 fee) to the same flight as my friend.
    I managed to get the other two Qantas flights through a mistake fare and a staff fare.

    You seem to be all over the boards JALPak!!! Can't wait to read your blog :)

    No worry. You did spend zero JMB miles after all and I should have been more specific :p

    Looks like the only fare I qualify would be the mistake fare :eek: Yea I am all over the boards and sometimes I don't even remember which forum/thread I am posting on anymore :eek:

    Not a single one (I was hustling for FOPs), which means we now have over 300k in our family account [​IMG]

    Can't spend them this year either, as I'm chasing the ANA dream...

    Make sure you don't let them expire like KIXman does. It's such a waste :p

    I used 65K miles last year and already exchanged 35K this year but I still have 200K to burn...good thing the first miles to expire - 465 of them will not be until 2013March.

    In my curiosity of how to apply for a SFC Card, I logged in to my ANA account and found out that I had 7K miles but it expired last Dec... [​IMG] JALPak, I also have Mabuhay Miles and I let them expire too as I don't see the point of using them although I just checked and I still have 11K outstanding. [​IMG]

    You've got some time left to burn those miles. Hopefully you don't have to redeem them for gift certificates at the end as flight/upgrade awards are more valuable if you can use them :)
    Can't you get some kind of domestic awards with that 11K or some kind of certificate?

    I don't redeem them for gift certs, always flight awards. I have been going home for free every year for the past 6 years because of the miles I collect but since last year, my company pays for my ticket as I mix it up with work so I have to find a way to use my miles.[​IMG]
