Agreed. I am a fairly intelligent and patient person, and I'm used to doing a bit of extra legwork to get good deals, but VS's website is wildly inconsistent. You say you want to search for flights with miles, and then the command doesn't stick on the next screen. I did the Amex transfer to get the extra miles but have found it challenging so far to use them.

I briefly used ExpertFlyer a few years ago before Delta cut off so much info to them. Does it let you search a range of dates on VS for award seats, or do you have to do it flight by flight?
