Award Alerts that get straight to the points!

Have you accumulated tens or hundreds of thousands of miles, but you just can’t figure out how to use them? Would you like award alerts that get you straight to the points? Then I have something for you!!

Do you want to fly First Class? 

I fly (and write) a ton about First and Business Class travel. It can be hard to find Lufthansa, Emirates, Korean Air, Singapore Airlines, or even International American Airlines awards seats.

I mean, who wouldn’t want this kind of seat?

Or, even better, a bed like this?

Well, I think its only a matter of time before you’ll be getting award alerts for these products in your e-mail! Just think, we’ve already seen business class to Australia posted!

So, how can you get award alerts that get you straight to the points?

You may have picked up on the Straight to the Points component of the title. My friend Spencer Howard recently launched an Award Alerts feature. Its pretty easy to sign up, you can navigate here.

Once there, just enter your e-mail:

award alerts, straight to the points

Once you hit subscribe, you’ll get an e-mail asking you to confirm your e-mail address.

Once you’ve done that, just wait for the e-mails to come in, and have your points balances ready!

Wrapping Up

There aren’t a lot of award alert options out there. You can set your own via ExpertFlyer, you could rely on the occasional posts from bloggers, but, I feel like Spencer’s Award Alert e-mail is going to be an interesting option. He typically looks for premium travel, but, because he often helps folks find award flights, he doesn’t have the kind of blinders I have one–that is, he actually looks at economy awards!

Bottom Line – this will take you less than 120 seconds to sign up, and even if you only find one or two awards a month that are interesting to you, it still seems well worth it to receive these alerts!
