    I'm just curious if anyone uses their miles to get the JAL coupons. When would it be advantageous to use your miles for these (rather than for award tickets or upgrades)?

    Not a good deal and therefore never use my miles for them. But I believe KIXman might have spent his miles this way before

    The reason I thought of it was because I'll probably stay at a JAL city hotel on my MR and could pay for most of it with the coupons. It doesn't seem like the best mile-to-money conversion, though (if I understand that).

    Don't do it. Way better options for burning out there unless you are desperate for cash. Rakuten seems to have cheaper rates than going direct plus you get Rakuten points so a 2% or so cash back (or convert them to ANA miles :eek:) . I'm Platinum with Rakuten so buying through this channel was a no brainer when i stayed there for my MR.

    As for the IC coupons... don't think many people use these. I haven't heard of it. I asked around the office and no one had too.

    Thanks, guys. That's what I thought. :)

    Any other opinions?
