Airlines Getting in on Miles & Points Hobby

Airlines are getting more savvy in selling miles to customers. While they used to charge extortionist rates to take advantage of people seeking the last 3,000 miles needed for an award ticket redemption, they are now seeing the big money they can generate by enticing people with promotions on cheap miles to pad their accounts. Like with everything in the points & miles hobby, customers can still get great deals, but they shouldn't buy miles just because of a shiny new promotion. Keep the upper hand!
