Travel Tuesday: Low fares for frequent flyers

By KTVA CBS 11 News 1:43 PM July 29, 2014

When it comes to airfare, travel guru Scott McMurren says there’s one guaranteed way to save.

“The frequent-flyer game is a big deal, especially as we roll into the last half of the year,” McMurren said.

From bonus miles to annual fees, he has a few tips for navigating the world of frequent-flyer programs.

  1. Consider the perks of an Alaska Air credit card from the Bank of America.
  2. Make an effort to charge daily purchases to the card and earn the points.
  3. Consider a separate card for international travel.
  4. Take advantage of all the double miles offered by registering in advance.
  5. Fly with Alaska Air often enough to reach MVP or MVP Gold status.
