– Marriott Rewards and Copa ConnectMiles teamed up and give you up to 2,000 miles per stay in Latin America until Mat 5th 2018

– Air France/KLM Flying Blue is making changes to the number of award miles needed for redemptions – there is a new award calculator here

Generally rates drop in Economy and are similar or lower in Business Class too. That is great news!

However it is not yet clear if partner award flights are also based on these calculations. Air France Flying adds rather big fuel surcharges that tilt award prices a lot. However I found one-way redemptions in Economy to Europe good value usually (the fuel surcharge shave since been raised and revenue ticket prices have gone down).

– I generally find Radisson Rewards (formerly know as Club Carlson) hard to use for exceptional value – however the newest promotion is great value and offers up to 120,000 bonus points when you book 20+ nights

Club CarlsonSM is now Radisson RewardsTM. Celebrate with this exclusive offer to book early and earn even more rewards. Register now and book between March 12 – April 15, 2018, to earn on stays from March 12 – June 30, 2018 at over 1,100 Radisson Hotel GroupTM properties worldwide.

Book & stay 2 nights: Earn 5,000 bonus points
Book & stay 5 nights: Earn 15,000 bonus points
Book & stay 10 nights: Earn 50,000 bonus points
Book & stay 20+ nights: Earn 120,000 bonus points

The cheapest Radisson Rewards properties charge about $30 a night – you may find an enterprising hotelier who gives you an even better rate. $500 for about 150,000 Radisosn Points (and a hotel for 20+ nights) is a sweet deal.
