    I know I probably should have researched this but I admit I'm a bit lazy, but I wanted to confirm something. If I purchase a ticket using my miles, will I not earn miles on that particular flight?

    Thanks in advance...

    It has been my experience that award redemptions on most airlines do not earn miles.

    Depends what miles you're using. If they're essentially cash (ie capital one) then yes, you will earn miles. If you're using airline miles, then you won't.

    Yeah! I'm using airline miles. However, thanks for the responses.

    Some award travel using AA miles on partner airlines earns you new miles. Also Citi-AAdvantage credit cards have a new benefit that rebates 10% of miles spent on award travel.

    For DL MQMs and SkyMiles, award tickets and pay with miles tickets earn absolutely no miles, although USBank PerkChoice (the old PMNW credit card) tickets are essentially purchased with cash, so they do earn DL (or other airline) miles.

    Some AmEx MR tickets earn miles, but not those that have you transfer MR points into FF miles.
