Hilton points are on sale with Daily Getaway next week, at 0.48 cent per point, slightly cheaper than the 0.5 cent per point if you purchase points directly from Hilton with 100% bonus through May 3.

Last week, we shared the new offer to transfer American Express Membership Rewards to Virgin Atlantic with a 30% bonus. In that article, we focused on your redemption options for Virgin Atlantic award flights, which frankly aren’t great.
However, there are better redemptions to be had from using Flying Club miles on Virgin Atlantic’s Japan-based partner ANA. First-class round-trip redemptions from the US to Japan start at just 90,000 Flying Club miles from Honolulu (HNL) — which will soon feature ANA’s new A380 — or 110,000 miles from the contiguous states. United charges 110,000 miles for a first-class one-way from the US to Japan, so you’re getting a round-trip for the price other programs charge for a one-way. And, the good news doesn’t end there.LEARN MORE!
