Redeem Amex Membership Rewards For Mileage Runs

by Miles Jackson

When it comes to Mileage Runs, there isn’t anyone who does it better than Juicy Miles. In fact, Juicy Miles is the major player in the global search and design of Mileage Runs for clients. With a new partnership, the service now allows American Express cardholders to redeem their AmEx Membership Rewards for Mileage Runs, further minimizing expenses to reach your desired elite status!

Redeem AmEx Membership Rewards for Your Mileage Run

Whether it’s the end of the year and you’re short of the required miles or dollars to qualify for elite status with a given airline loyalty program, or you’re simply trying to quickly obtain a higher level of status to snag more upgrades and benefits throughout the year, Juicy Miles can help! The service even offers ways around those huge spend requirements (think American Airlines’ EQD’s, Delta’s MQM’s and United’s PQF’s!) and has been featured in the Washington Post, Condé Nast Traveler, and The Points Guy.

Often, Mileage Runs can be found at BoardingArea blog RenesPoints. It’s a blog focused primarily on Delta flyers. Those Delta folks often are American Express cardholders and can now easily contact Juicy Miles to book the same Elite Mileage Runs found on the site with the confidence that the best fare classes will be guaranteed for maximum earnings.

Elites of all programs can use the service to maximize their earnings with their respective elite programs.

What is a Mileage Run?

For the uniformed, a mileage run is a trip taken primarily to earn elite miles and to help you earn (or re-qualify) for elite status with an airline’s frequent flyer program.

Typically, a mileage run is done on a cheaper-than-normal airline ticket to rack up miles that count toward earning airline elite status. In recent years, the major US carriers have added spend requirements as well which has created an opportunity to focus on partner traveler to fulfill requirements.  When traveling on Delta, for example, may earn you MQD’s for the fare price (less taxes and fees,) flying on a partner allows you to earn MQD’s based on the distance flown and fare class you’re booked in.

At the heart of mileage running is achieving each tier of airline elite status in the most financially efficient method possible. Using AmEx Membership Rewards allows you to minimize your out of pocket expenses. In addition, Juicy partners with one of the largest travel agency networks where you’ll receive personal service and confidence that your trip is monitored in case something goes wrong. In addition, they offer discounts on major domestic and international carriers, allowing runners to further maximize their savings. Clients can double-dip, benefiting from discounted Premium Class fares and AmEx Membership Rewards redemptions for the same trip!

How to Earn American Express Membership Rewards

AmEx Membership Rewards is the (New) Go-To for Star Alliance Awards, so readers should not consider them as a ‘Delta-specific benefit! Membership Rewards can help all fliers across many airline programs.
