5 Ways to Maximize Credit Card Airline Miles

If the idea of flying all over the world and not having to pay for it appeals to you, then you’re in luck. The opportunity to fly for little-to-no-money has never been easier or more available than it is right now.

That’s because more and more businesses are offering airline miles as rewards for using their services. With a little planning and research, you can take full advantage of the money you spend just by spending it the right way.

1) Look for partnership deals

Some credit card companies offer deals for purchasing subscriptions and services through businesses they partner with. These could include newspaper and magazine subscriptions, insurance company quotes and policies, hotels and car rentals agencies – you name it. If this is something you need anyway, why not earn miles for it?

2) Take advantage of one-time bonus miles

Many credit card companies offer substantial bonuses for spending a certain amount during the initial period of having the card. If you plan accordingly, you can take advantage of thousands of extra miles, and then pay off the charges and do it over again with a new card. It’s the fastest way to accumulate extra miles. Many of these cards even offer 0% introductory rates.

3) Use the right card

If you’re planning to make a major purchase such as a car, boat or even furniture or appliances, use a credit card that will take full advantage of your purchase. Some cards offer even up to three times the bonus points for major purchases made with the card.

4) Watch for special offers

Some credit card companies will make special offers on extra airline miles. Look these over carefully and decide if it fits in with your spending and budget plans. Some offers don’t require you to spend any extra money but simply give you extra miles for signing up an authorized user.

5) Look for points that don’t expire

Most of the credit card airline mile rewards points are good indefinitely. That may not be true, however, with the airline frequent flyer programs themselves. If you do plan to transfer points from a credit card reward plan to an airline frequent flyer program, be aware of mile expiration dates.

Credit card airline miles are a great way to fly for practically free. Take full advantage of all the extra bonuses and ways to earn more miles. If you regularly use your airline miles credit card for the majority of your purchases, your miles will add up faster than you think. Soon you’ll be flying high and enjoying the rewards.

2 Insurance coverage(s) included with CIBC credit cards is underwritten by Royal Sun Alliance Insurance Company of Canada (RSA). Different cards may have different coverage(s). To learn about which coverage(s) are included with a specific card, and important information regarding coverage eligibility requirements, benefits, limitations and exclusions, see our Agreements and Insurance page and the insurance certificate(s) in your card package. Some insurance coverage(s) require purchase(s), auto rentals, common carrier fares and other trip costs to be charged to the card to activate coverage (other conditions may also apply). Auto Rental Collision and Loss Damage Insurance (CLDI) is available for automobile rentals of up to 48 days. The full cost of the rental must be charged to the card and the rental agency’s Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) or Loss Damage Waiver (LDW) must be declined. CLDI provides coverage up to the actual cash value (ACV) of the rental vehicle as defined in your insurance certificate. Note that some rental agencies may assess their damages at an amount greater than the ACV of the rental vehicle and you may be liable to them for the difference. Before declining the rental agency’s CDW or LDW, you should read carefully and compare the terms of the rental agreement, the CLDI insurance certificate in your card package and any other insurance you own to decide which coverage best meets your protection needs. Certain RSA coverage(s) are excess insurance (all other sources of insurance and recovery must be exhausted before coverage is available).
