Hi All, I just discovered MP last weekend and it is awesome to see how nice and willing folks are to help out use Newbies! I am trying to plan a trip from DC to London in October for 4 or 5 days for myself and my girlfriend. It will be a present for myself for graduating from graduate school. We both have around 50,000 miles on UA. I have the UA credit card and we both have the Chase Saphire Preferred card. We are planning on booking a saver award in either coach or business (gf doesn't know if using 100,000 miles is worth it for business, I think it is). Do you all think it is worth the extra 40,000 miles (60,000 for saver economy v. 100,000 for business)? We were hoping to get some advice on which hotel programs we should be looking into to try and get our hotel taken care of in London, as well as if we should go into another airport like Brussels to avoid heavy taxes at LHR. Any advice you could give would be greatly appreciated.
