After a recent blog-battle of whether using miles for 1st/business class flying or just economy class is better, I tried looking around the blogosphere that focus on the latter. Admittedly, I didn't try too hard, but just about anything I read about redeeming miles has to do with high "value" redemptions for 1st/business class. I understand why people try to do that, but from a personal perspective, I would like to get more trips per number of miles. I am at a point where I have a decent number of miles waiting for my wife and I to use, but relatively limited amount of advice on how to maximize them. Any recommendations of your own or on sources that cater to cheapskates like me are highly welcome!
