DOUBLE Star Alliance Points till Nov 15th
 
DOUBLE Star Alliance Points till Nov 15th

Well the heading is true .. could be quadruple in some cases.

I was just snooping around the Mexicana website as I fly with them to Los Cabos this week and have not yet booked a hotel. (Found Sheratons and Westins 50% off in Sept, so a useful site!)

Mexicana have just joined Star Alliance. Thier "opening special" is for your first flight DOUBLE mileage on ANY Star Alliance r/t flight, in any class, anywhere in the world:

Thats the good news. The maybe not so good news is that the double miles go into your MEX "Frequenta" account .. that also gets a 4000 mile sign on bonus. How useful are Frequenta miles? Who knows ... I spent 10 minutes on their site and can't see WHAT point sums apply to any redemption of free flights. If anyone else finds it, please post here!

All I know is that if ANY UA flyer takes a Thai flight they get HALF miles for every mile flown. If I fly Thai to Europe in coach the 20,000 flown miles get me only 10,000 MP points. On Frequenta I assume this becomes 40,000 points + 4,000 sign on, and that 34,000 bonus might be worth something quite decent?

A strange deal .. make of it what you will. http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/smile.gif

With a bit of input from others, this deal has turned out to be an EXCELLENT promo even if you never fly *

You get FIVE free Hilton nights for about 15 minutes keyboard work it looks like. Full details here:
