I donít think that will work. The terms and conditions of deal specifically says hotel must match length of stay. So car does not qualify

Yup. You are correct sir. I may as well enjoy Thailand and stay a few days! I am just gonna torture myself and do SAN-JFK-SFO-HND-BKK and back. It will cost me an extra $250 for SAN-JFK RT but the overall haul is justifiable for a peasant such as myself with nothing else to do. I should earn enough total points to fly in Business to Europe from SAN upstairs on the BA 747 one way (in my favorite rear facing corner pod!) and in Y the other.

Try 3/6-3/10. It will price out at $619. As pointed out, unless you want to grab the $130 discount instead of the 21K miles, this seems to be the general pricing of BKK from LAX. If anyone finds one lower, please post. I'm digging from JFK at this point.

I must admit that my sad new hobby has become searching AAvacations for the best EQD per $$$ return. We should create a secret group to share these deals. It really takes some crowd sourcing to find these deals as many of these fares are unpublished and require better fare classes (V, L,M,K, H are the best).

Booked a PHX-DFW-PEK-LAX-PHX in J (I fare) for $2,500 in mid-March. Seemed cheap enough (after a couple glasses of wine)? Then I nested a PEK-LAX in J for $1,189.

What city has the cheapest hotel to burn?

Not getting the math for lax-bkk. 16800 miles x 0.5 x 1.0(no status) + 21000 bonus = 29900miles earned. How do you get min 35k?

You can route LAX-DFW-HKG-BKK and also via ORD from LAX

Hotels in Bangkok are very cheap. VERY nice hotels can be had for $50 and less, but may be more once high season starts in December.

Would this credit to AS as well?

Trying to wrap my head all of this.

I see flights from SAN to PVG for under $500 on ITA. I can pull these up on AA Vacations but without the necessary HKG stop to make no visa necessary. How would one book a more complex itinerary?

Yes, but it would kind of be missing the point as you wouldn't get the 20k bonus.
