I think this is appropriate for the budget board because it's about saving money! I just purchased what would have cost over $15k in airfare for under $500 thanks to credit card points/miles. It was a huge PITA transferring and sorting everything out/finding availability but saving that much money is kind of a rush! I've used points for flights before but never this complicated or for such a high cash price tag! For one leg of my trip United kept asking if I would like to buy my ticket for zero points for only $7,995...no, United I would not. Also does that ever work?
