    Lucky recently wrote about transferring points/miles to ANA and redeeming those on Virgin Atlantic for Upper Class. I didn't know this trick and was glad to read it, but it got me thinking - what are some other partner mileage redemption strategies to help us maximize the power of the miles we collect on *A?

    I'm looking at gleff and Lucky here since I read (and quite enjoy - thanks, guys!) both of their blogs daily so I know that they know more strategies, but any and all would be welcome to comment here. I think this would be valuable information to have collected here in a sort of "1-stop shop" type thread for future reference.

    BD DC offers family plan without having to spend miles to open family accounts, plus BD allows for redemptions on Virgin as well. BD through out the year offers miles sales from 20-50% off sometimes, so you can buy miles as low as 1.2-1.4 cpms.
