On Monday we unveiled Points, Miles, and Martini’s newest giveaway, BEST TRAVEL DEAL EVER in which we were giving away 5,000 American Airlines miles for offering up your best travel deal. A big Thank You goes out to all our readers for participating in this giveaway. I hope you were able to learn some new information from the more than 100+ travel deals that were posted for consideration just as we were.

It was difficult to select just one travel deal from so many excellent entries but we decided to go with a travel deal that involves both a world class aspirational award and award chart redemption optimization. Points, Miles and Martinis would like to thank commenter Jimgotkp who posted:

“140K AS miles for a roundtrip ticket on Cathay First from the US to Johannesburg! One of the best values!”

This is the kind of aspirational award we dream of at PMM. On this award redemption, you receive 4 Long Haul flights in Cathay Pacific First Class. What an incredible experience and value at only 140k Alaska Airlines miles! Thank you again Jimgotkp.

The winners

The Grand Prize of 3,000 American Airline Miles goes to commenter #47 Jimgotkp.

The two sets of 1,000 American Airlines miles go to:

Commenter #136 Adrian who said, “15 AAdvantage miles (instead of 10) for each dollar donated to the USO through Miles in Support of All Who Serve program!”


Commenter #110 Lorf Fish who said, “If you can travel in June, receive up to 2-for-1 cruise/cruisetour pricing plus up to FREE air with Viking River Cruises. Eight-day European river cruise from $2,556. Offer expires May 31, 2012.”

We’re not done giving away miles yet!

We’d like to thank American Airlines for providing these miles to donate to our readers by winning the Expert Tabs competition on the American Airlines Facebook page. This blog was given 5,000 AA miles to give away to our readers and 5,000 AA miles to keep. We followed up with American Airlines and they allowed us to give all 10,000 miles away to our readers. Keep an eye out for Part II of the BEST TRAVEL DEAL EVER giveaway for a shot at the next 5,000 AA miles!
