Travel Secrets: Miles & points resources

Miles and points refresher. Quick review: Alaska Air’s plan is a winner. Delta’s, United’s = loser. American Air is the cream-of-the-crap of the big three alliances. Accordingly, I spend ZERO time on the other airline plans. Just my 2c. If I lived in Atlanta, I would think differently…but I don’t, so I don’t.
