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.

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.
