Traveling like a Pro: How the PEYD Team Travel This Winter Vacation. Part 4, Family of Five to Los Angeles/Disneyland

Image result for disneyland

In our series documenting how the PEYD Team traveled this winter break using airline miles and credit card points to offset the cost of the airfare and hotels, we share our insider tricks, methods and best practices to help minimize any out of pocket expenses when planning one’s next vacation.

In this series, we will focus on how Eli and his family took a vacation to Sunny Los Angeles, which is always a great winter destination and with deluxe locations such as Disney world typically part of the itinerary, it can also get quite pricy as there aren’t many discounts available for the Disneyland entrance fee. So the need to find cheap airfare and hotel options becomes even more necessary than other destinations or vacation options.

Points Accrual

Eli was able to make this trip happen without breaking the bank by racking up miles on his Starwood Preferred Guest (SPG) credit card, opening new airline and hotel credit cards for him and his wife based on his everyday spending, with the intention of using these valuable miles and points towards his flights, hotel and overall travel.

One of the greatest ways to maximize reward potential using SPG points is by utilizing point transfers. Certain SPG transfers of 20,000 points or more give you an extra 5,000 points when converted to airline miles and luckily, Virgin America is within that bonus tier.

Airline Choice

Virgin America has direct flights to LA and is an airline partner with SPG as mentioned above, and after researching flight options with numerous airlines, it became clear that Virgin America would offer the cheapest possible tickets for California during his preferred travel dates.

With this in mind, he opened two new Virgin America Credit Cards, in order to receive their 15,000 point bonuses after spending the minimum requirement. The 20,000 SPG points Eli had accrued plus the transfer bonus of 5,000 including the two 15,000 bonus miles he had earned with the Virgin America spending bonuses left Eli with 55,000 Virgin America miles to be used for his flights.

Eli then booked his trip for 56,000 airline miles (he had 1k in his account already. As it grew nearer to his trip, Eli checked the airfare rates for his flights and noticed that the mileage cost had gotten significantly lower than it had when he originally booked. Virgin America allows customers to cancel flights free of charge so within a matter of minutes, Eli had cancelled and rebooked his tickets for a lesser amount of miles, saving himself 10,000 points in the process!

Hotel Stay

It was imperative for Eli and his wife that his kids to spend time near a water park and research was done to locate a hotel in the area that would accommodate these needs. There is a particular Howard Johnson in Anaheim, California which has a great water park on premises and is just minutes from Disneyland. Howard Johnson is connected to the Wyndham hotel chain which happens to offer a credit card with a 30,000 point spending bonus… You can guess the rest! Two credit cards signups and 60,000 bonus points later, Eli had a four-night stay at this convenient hotel for free. Luckily, there was enough points left over for Eli and his family to stay at a local hotel over the weekend in close proximity to one of his relatives – the perfect ending to a wonderful family vacation!

** Readers should keep in mind that applying for and receiving CC is 10% of your credit score and closing them only impacts your credit line with that card.

SPG Points are in High Demand!

Traveling like a Pro: How the PEYD Team Traveled This Winter Vacation Using Airline Miles & Credit Card Points

Family of Five to Las Vegas

Image result

When it comes to traveling to Las Vegas, pricey hotels and costly expenses usually come to mind, but in this week’s version of ‘How The PEYD Team Travelled this Winter’, we will be covering how Yaakov, one of the founding members of PEYD, flew his entire family to Las Vegas by using his airline miles and credit card rewards points without spending any money out of pocket.

Earlier in the year, JetBlue had offered a special promotion of 75,000 bonus points to any customer who fulfills the requirements of buying a JetBlue ticket, despite having significant points/miles with another airline (like Virgin America as an example). Through this promotion, JetBlue was hoping to win the business of customers who had mileage balances with other airlines so they would choose JetBlue as their next source for airfare, rather than the airline the customer was using previously.

Yaakov transferred 41,000 Starwood Preferred Guest points to Virgin America points giving him the required 51,000 points needed to activate JetBlue’s special promotion. He immediately gained 75,000 JetBlue points and purchased a cheap airfare ticket with JetBlue ticket to display loyalty to the airline.

With those 75,000 JetBlue points, Yaakov was able to procure airfare for himself, his wife as well as his 3 children to Las Vegas during a very busy season.

Once he arrived at JFK, there were some delays at the airport and after a quick word with the flight reps- Yaakov was given an additional $175 voucher for his delays and difficulties. He decided to use the cash voucher towards the airline ticket “tax surcharges” and to purchase an additional seat for his 4th child – an infant under two years old!

Once in Vegas, Yaakov used his platinum SIXT membership card to upgrade to a large SUV (Chevy Tahoe) for the entire week, paying the low price of $300! All in all with the value of the JetBlue points awarded due to his knowledge of their lucrative offer, he was able to cover the cost of the entire trip and more!

Stay tuned for our next series as we continue to educate the public how you can take your next vacation and minimize your out of pocket expense and travel in style the PEYD way.

Traveling like a Pro: How the PEYD Team Traveled This Winter Vacation Using Airline Miles & Credit Card Points

PART 1, Married Couple with young Child – West Coast Trip

Winter break is always a challenging time of year to get hold of affordable airfare and travel packages. Nevertheless, this stood as no deterrent for the PEYD Team in planning their family vacations with members and staff traveling this winter season to California, Israel, Florida, Las Vegas and even Thailand. And we are happy to share our insider tricks, methods and best practices which can help minimize any out of pocket expenses the next time you wish to take a family vacation.

For the purposes of this article we will focus on the steps one of the PEYD partners took when he went on vacation with his wife and young child using airline miles and credit card points and in the next series we will focus on additional vacations other members of the PEYD Team planned by taking advantage of available credit card rewards and travel partnership programs.

This past Chanukah coincided with another national holiday and the most desirable travel dates of the season, with airfare and hotels being very expensive. Today, we’ll fill you in on how our PEYD Partner Dudi brought his family to sunny L.A., without paying any money out of pocket!

Dudi had been earning Starwood Preferred Guest (SPG)  credit card points from his credit card usage of the American Express SPG Credit Card and was hoping to take his accumulated points and transfer them into an airline and book a ‘mileage’ ticket. Upon realizing that airline tickets to California were requiring more miles than off peak times, he kicked into travel agent mode and pursued other options.

Instead of transferring his SPG points directly into an airline like Delta or American Airline and having to put in enough points to cover the cost of the more expensive tickets, he instead took 90,000 SPG points and transferred them into 270,000 Marriott points. (SPG points transfer into Marriott at a rate of 3 Marriott points for every SPG point).

He then took advantage of a special Marriott Hotel & Air Vacation Package where Marriott offers bonus airline miles with the airline of your choice when you book a hotel vacation package. He chose Southwest as his airline and transferred this Marriott points to Southwest equaling 120,000 SW miles – more than the 110,000 magic number required to earning a Southwest “Companion Pass.” For those not familiar, a Companion Pass is a special promotion that kicks in when you transfer or earn over 110,000 SW miles. With this pass, Southwest airlines let’s you bring an additional passenger on your itinerary for no added cost, every time you fly, for a year, and even with tickets that are booked using your SW miles.

By the time all these transfers had occurred Southwest was offering tickets to California for an affordable 50,000 points, and due to the fact that Dudi’s wife was now able to fly with him for free using the SW Companion Pass, the 110,000 SW miles Dudi earned covered himself and his son with his wife flying for free.

Side note, Dudi kept checking the Southwest rates to California knowing that they would reduce the ticket prices in accordance with that day’s particular rate. When he saw prices to LA had dropped, he cancelled his initial reservation and then immediately re-booked his tickets and the final price for his tickets only cost 38,000 Southwest points per ticket (about $450) to make it to beautiful L.A. during the busiest week of the season. And the best part, Dudi’s wife can now fly with him for free every time he chooses to fly with SW for the remaining calendar year.

Stay tuned for our next series as we continue to educate the public how you can take your next vacation and minimize your out of pocket expense and travel in style the PEYD way.

How to fly to Israel for free this Passover Using American Express Delta Credit Cards!

14590288_1338354849528190_9146032519305519687_n

During the holiday season in Jewish communities across the country, there is always an uptick in conversation about who is traveling to Israel for Yom Tov, and how nice it was to visit their child in Seminary the previous year, or how beautiful it would be to spend Chanukah in the Old City… Whether your desire is to take the family to Israel for Pesach or perhaps a Mid-Winter vacation for this coming January, your everyday expenses can help you earn enough points/miles to travel to Israel without any money out of pocket. Lately the news is even better: there are four new limited time offers from American Express that can help you get there.

For starters, it can be very confusing navigating the vast network of airline and credit card rewards programs. It’s vital that a person apply for the best credit card offers and understand how exactly to use their miles to book the most cost effective travel arrangements. At PEYD, our mantra is to help our clients understand how to use their buying power to take advantage of great new offers as they become available. We truly enjoy helping our clients navigate this industry, in the hope that they can experience what it feels like to travel the world in style without breaking the bank.

American Express just released four limited time Delta Credit Card offers that can give consumers enough miles to make it to The Holy Land by Chanukah or latest Pesach of this coming year.

Let’s see a breakdown of the offers below.

American Express Delta Offers

The Gold Delta SkyMiles® Business Credit Card from American Express is offering a limited time offer of 50,000 bonus miles (up from 30,000) after $2,000 is spent in purchases in the first 3 months. Additionally, you can earn a $50 statement credit after you make a Delta purchase with your new Card within your first 3 months. The limited time offer ends on 11/09/2016.

The Platinum Delta SkyMiles® Business Credit Card from American Express is offering a limited time offer of 70,000 bonus miles after $5,000 is spent in purchases in the first 3 months. Additionally, you can earn a $100 statement credit after you make a Delta purchase with your new Card within your first 3 months. The limited time offer ends on 11/09/2016.

The Gold Delta SkyMiles® Personal Credit Card from American Express is offering a limited time offer of 50,000 bonus miles (up from 30,000) after $2,000 is spent in purchases in the first 3 months. Additionally, you can earn a $50 statement credit after you make a Delta purchase with your new Card within your first 3 months. The limited time offer ends on 11/09/2016.

The Platinum Delta SkyMiles® Personal Credit Card from American Express is offering a limited-time offer of 70,000 bonus miles after you spend $3,000 in eligible purchases on your new Card in your first 3 months. In addition, earn a $100 statement credit after you make a Delta purchase with your new Card within your first 3 months. This Limited time offer expires on 11/9/16.

Once you apply for these credit offers and complete the required minimum spend (yeshiva tuition for 2/3 kids can often cover this!) it’s time to figure out how many “rewards miles” it will actually take to obtain your desired flight to Israel. Next, we must confirm that there is ‘mileage availability’ – the most important aspect of booking award travel.

After running a test of the Delta Skymiles award program, we found full availability for tickets to Israel this Pesach for as low as 70,000 Delta Miles round-trip, with a stopover included. That means if you get approved for both business credit cards you will have enough miles to fly two people to Israel this year and if one get approved for all three cards, you’ve truly hit a homerun.

It’s important to keep in mind that these limited time offers are only available until the first week of November and specifically to customers that have not yet been offered of any of these bonuses previously. In addition, mileage availability often changes without notice so it is best to take advantage of this ASAP.

Luckily, there are also some great hotel offers available which can help you keep costs down while traveling. Whether one utilizes Starwood bonus offers or others, the benefits of a heavily discounted trip to Israel are too great to pass up.

The good news is that even if these Delta Mileage tickets are no longer available, you can always utilize your miles by exchanging them with PEYD for a paid flight to Israel. There are never any blackout dates or catches when booking your travel this way.

Credit Card Companies are Increasingly Regulating the Industry – Get your Cards before they’re gone!

524-copy

Recently, several prominent credit cards have seen a makeover in terms of regulation and application restrictions which are leaving longtime customers high and dry. Both Chase and CitiBank have introduced new guidelines regarding eligibility for new cards, specifically irking travel gurus who utilize their cards and points to maximize on rewards and travel.

Chase is one of the most accessible and well known Banks in the U.S. – it should come as no surprise that with great cards such as Chase Sapphire Preferred, it has become fairly common for people to apply for several of their rewards cards simultaneously for ultimate value. To the dismay of Chase loyalists everywhere, the 5/24 rule has taken over. What this means is that “Chase will not issue you a new Chase credit card if you have opened 5 or more credit cards over the past 24 months.” To add insult to injury, this even includes any card in which the applicant is considered an authorized user. Theoretically, a person with outstanding credit and years of customer loyalty would be duly denied without reprieve. Ouch.

On August 28th CitiBank updated their rules regarding rewards, effectively limiting what customers will be able to receive in terms of “sign up bonuses” for the future. They now only allow their customers to receive a sign up bonus every 24 months, per “type” of card.

What does this mean? That you won’t be able to earn a Citi ThankYou credit card signup bonus if you opened or closed ANY Citi ThankYou cards within the past 24 months. In addition, this rule also applies to Citi’s other cobranded cards, such as Citi AAdvantage cards and Citi Hilton cards.

To clarify – Let’s look at the evolution of the coveted Citi Prestige card “Bonus Rules”

Old rulesBonus ThankYou Points not available if you have had a Citi Prestige card opened or closed in the past 24 months

Now the following new terms are listed:

New RulesBonus ThankYou points are not available if you have had ThankYou Preferred, ThankYou Premier or Citi Prestige card opened or closed in the past 24 months.

What this means for the mile churning and savvy 21st century credit card user is that keeping up with the CC companies rules and regulations is a constantly changing task, which can make a big difference on your wallet. In order to stay on top of all updates and amendments, tune in to our follow up blog where we’ll give you tips on which cards are still available and worth signing up for as well as potential loopholes around these new rules. REMEMBER, don’t let your points/miles sit idle, as they might be devalued or altered when it comes to value and reward!

What ever happened to the DOT Audit of U.S. Frequent Flyer Programs?

Readers may recall that PEYD covered the story some time ago of a rabbi who had sued Northwest claiming the forfeiture of his mileage account and elite status was illegal. In a unique turn of events, the court decided that the case was not able to proceed due to the federal law protecting U.S. Airlines from being sued. Even more interesting, was the courts lack of clarification as to whether the rabbi’s claim was valid. What no one anticipated was that a Florida Congressman would be the one who would chose to take this issue up with the Department of Transportation (DOT) as a result of the fallout with his own personal experiences.

Over a year ago, Alan Grayson (D-FL) began an initiative to unearth the nature of how U.S. airlines structure the redemption policies of their frequent flyer reward programs. The DOT looked into the matter which resulted in an audit of the industry’s reward systems as a whole. Their official report was recently released and we wanted to share their findings with our readers.

The audit report’s summary somewhat perplexing headline read: “Improvements needed in DOT’s process for identifying unfair or deceptive practices in airline frequent flyer programs.”

In the DOTs report, they clearly state that changing the terms and conditions of an airline’s Frequent Flyer program without reasonable and just notice is an unfair and deceptive practice, yet somehow, at the conclusion of this “audit” the DOT stated, “The DOT’s reviews of passenger complaints related to frequent flyer terms and conditions, however, have not proven sufficient in determining whether airlines have engaged in unfair and deceptive practices.”

Below is the full text of the DOT’s findings:

Improvements Needed in DOT’s Process for Identifying Unfair or Deceptive Practices in Airline Frequent Flyer Programs

Designed to promote travel and secure customer loyalty, frequent flyer programs are extremely popular, with approximately 630 million participants worldwide and more than 300 million members enrolled in U.S.-based programs. In a July 2014 letter and subsequent conversations with our office, Representative Alan Grayson expressed concerns about practices associated with these programs, including how far in advance members are notified about service changes, the devaluation of awards and benefits over time, and the availability of award seats. As the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) is authorized to investigate unfair and deceptive practices in air transportation, we initiated an audit to review its monitoring of airline frequent flyer programs. In particular, we looked at DOT’s oversight of air carriers’ disclosure agreements and its process for reviewing passenger complaints. We also examined airlines’ practices regarding the availability of award seats and the valuation of frequent flyer miles.

We found that DOT conducts oversight of air carriers’ frequent flyer program disclosures as part of its compliance inspections, and that airlines include frequent flyer rules in their customer service plans, as the Department requires. However, DOT’s reviews of passenger complaints are insufficient to determine whether airlines engage in unfair and deceptive practices. For example, from 2012 to 2014, consumers filed 76 complaints about frequent flyer programs at U.S. airlines, but none of those complaints were forwarded to DOT attorneys for review. Yet our review of 36 of these complaints showed that 4 (11 percent) warranted additional review. In addition, while award seats are available for most flights, it is unclear how many miles are redeemed at different award levels, as airlines do not publicly disclose this information. Finally, airlines do not fully explain their process for determining award-seat availability to the traveling public.

We made two recommendations to help DOT improve its process for identifying unfair or deceptive practices in frequent flyer programs. DOT concurred with both recommendations, and we consider them resolved but open pending the Department’s completion of its planned actions. We also encouraged airlines to provide consumers with more transparency regarding frequent flyer seat availability when feasible.

What’s interesting is that our friends over at Dan’s Deals have also recently brought to light evidence contrary to the findings of the DOT report by running a cursory sample of frequent flyer redemption with the AAdvantage program, American Airlines’ frequent flyer program.

When attempting to utilize American Airlines’ rewards program for travel dates set at 7/13 – 12/31 the offers available were abysmal.

-From NYC to Los Angeles there were 99 available dates on United, 107 available dates on Delta, and only 3 available dates on American. All 3 of American’s dates were Saturdays.
-From NYC to San Francisco there were 107 available dates on United, 104 available dates on Delta, and only 2 available dates on American.
-From NYC to San Diego there were 133 available dates on United, 109 available dates on Delta, and only 2 available dates on American.
-From NYC to Las Vegas there were 75 available dates on United, 125 available dates on Delta, and only 2 available dates on American. Both of American’s dates were Saturdays.

So it would seem that somehow the DOT’s report was in fact not as comprehensive as it could have been in determining whether US Airlines structure the programs in a manner that discourages redemption or is in bad faith.

We encourage our readers who had a bad frequent flyer experience and who feel so inclined, to file a complaint with the DOT here.

What has become abundantly clear is that consumers earning frequent flyer miles must be aware that for the time being their miles will remain at risk of being devalued, downgraded or more difficult to use, and that the Federal government has chosen not to enforce how frequent flyer programs are structured or maintained by the airlines!

PEYD 360 Combines Full Service Leisure and Business Travel with Credit Card Rewards Management and the Personal Touch

In recent years, the world of credit card rewards and loyalty points has become increasingly complex and difficult to navigate, leaving many shaking their heads in frustration, allowing their hard won points to expire because redeeming them was just too difficult.  In fact, 90 percent of the 300 million plus in frequent flyer and rewards points earned each year go unclaimed, often because both private individuals and businesses have no idea how to navigate the often complicated maze of the redemption process.

PEYD, a Long Island based company, was founded almost five years ago by a team of four friends to help customers maximize their credit card rewards and airline miles.  While originally PEYD was primarily involved in redeeming awards as well as buying and selling unused rewards points and miles, over time the group found themselves inundated with travel related requests from both private clients and corporate accounts.  From helping friends book visits to Israel or vacations in Miami, to working with big name Madison Avenue clients that plan frequent trips for employees, PEYD built a reputation for excellence by going all out for each and every customer, big or small.

PEYD evolved from a four man, one room operation in Inwood to a full scale business with additional offices in Brooklyn, Pittsburgh and Jerusalem, serving a clientele that spans the globe.  To date, PEYD has processed almost two billion miles and has expanded its offerings into a new brand that combines full mileage management and extensive travel planning services while still providing every client with warm, personalized service.

Titled PEYD 360, this new arm of the company encompasses the full circle of the travel experience, starting with the ticket purchase and covering every detail of every trip.  Created in response to customer demand, PEYD 360 maximizes miles while minimizing travel costs  and includes a wide array of services including booking flights, hotel accommodations, car rentals and concierge services.

“As our company has grown, we renewed our focus on business travel and rewards management,” said Eli Schreiber, PEYD’s director of marketing.  “We are the only company that offers credit card rewards, airline miles and travel services merged into one cohesive product based on your business type and where you are traveling.”

PEYD’s dedicated and friendly staff has more than 20 years of experience, giving them the ability to  leverage their vast base of contacts, affiliates and knowledge to provide customers with unparalleled service and incredible value.  Because of their extensive familiarity with loyalty points and airline miles, PEYD 360 has the ability to pinpoint  the best itinerary using the fewest possible points and can also locate additional rewards that may be unique to particular destinations, providing customers with even greater benefits.

PEYD 360 can also make sure that clients are using the right cards to earn the rewards that suit them best including premium cards that are not available to the general public and are only offered through specialized business partnerships.  A comprehensive array of services are also available to corporate clients to handle and monitor all aspects of business travel, allowing for maximum savings and productivity.

Meir Shuvalsky, director of mileage travel, uses his extensive knowledge of the intricate mileage network employed by various airlines and alliances to find the best deals for clients.  A coach ticket to China may cost $1,000 or 70,000 miles, while a business class ticket to the same destination can run $7,000 or 200,000 miles. Although mileage tickets can offer significant savings with their substantially smaller price differentials, they can be difficult to acquire.

“A regular person may not know how to navigate the system to take advantage of that mileage ticket, but we can do that, buying discounted business class tickets with miles,” explained Shuvalsky. “We buy the miles and take care of everything.”

Feedback from customers has been extremely enthusiastic, reported Shuvalsky.

“Everyone loves the discounts and they also get personal service,” said Shuvalsky. “There is someone dealing with seat changes, meal requests and any changes.  There is always someone there for you that you can call or email 24/7 if you need anything.”

Most of all, PEYD 360 provides customers with peace of mind, simplifying the world of points and travel by handling the often complex details and presenting customers with the options that best suit their particular needs.

“We take all the stress out of travel,” explained Yaacov Hoffinger, manager of PEYD’s revenue department.  “Usually corporations have someone dedicated to travel or have people running around getting approvals.  We make it a streamlined process, with trained professionals offering personalized services.”

Being able to interface directly with PEYD team members, located in the immediate area is another benefit.

“People don’t want to talk to customer service representatives in India or Asia who don’t know them or understand their needs,” said Hoffinger.  “They want someone they feel they can trust, someone they are comfortable with. They want the comfort of knowing that they have someone they can rely on.”

The personal touch remains an integral part of PEYD’s business model and Partner Pinny Ackerman describes PEYD as a “feet on the ground” company that combines likability with professionalism.

“Our clients appreciate that we having a relationship with them and that we are a bunch of regular guys who have barbeques and play ball after work,” said Ackerman.  “We live and work in our community and we enjoy getting involved locally and giving back to the community.”
