How to fly to Europe and Vietnam for free

I had an amazing conversation with my friend Jenny a few days when she asked me the best way to search for a ticket to fly from Philly to Paris in August for her trip aborad.

I went directly to this site to find out how many miles does she need. allows you to calculate and compare flight redemption rates of different frequent flyer programs. Have you ever wondered which frequent flyer program has the best award rates … specifically for the flights you are interested in?

It costs

1. United airline: 60,000 miles to fly from US to Europe however the best thing is that with 65,000 miles you can literally fly from US stop over in Europe for 4 months then fly to Vietnam and then back to the US. This works for any US-Europe-Asia route.

Example routes:

  • US  – Europe (Stop for 4-6 months) – Vietnam – US (65,000 miles) or
  • US  – Vietnam – Europe (Stop for 4-6 months) – US (65,000 miles)
  • US – European cities – Asian cities

This is such a great deal considering the ticket prices of her routes could easily be

  • $600 US – Europe
  • $800 Europe – Vietnam
  • $800 Vietnam – US

a. Right now, you can apply for the 55,000 United Mileage Visa card  and get $50 statement fee.

b. After you get the card, you can get 4,000 United mile from this United Netflix deal. Then you would have at least 59,000 miles towards your goal

c. At this moment you can buy United miles for 3.5 cent each so 6,000 miles will cost you another $225.75 (normal price). I would not buy the miles right now because it is too expensive at the moment. However you can buy a minimum of 2,000 miles if you have no United miles then apply for the credit card; since you can only see the 55k credit card offer when you have at least one mile in your United account.

d. You can join Guilt and make a purchase over $50 to receive the bonus 1,500 United miles.  You also receive $5 miles for every dollar spent in the first 6 months. It is a good way to top up your United Mileage Plus account.

In total it will cost you $225.75 + $8 netflix = $233.75 for a round-trip ticket from US – Europe – Asia – US


2. American Airline: 60,000 miles because of peak time. She can get 60,000 AA miles from applying for these two AA 50,000 credit cards and get the AA Netflix deal

Round trip in Economy Off-Peak (Oct 15 – May 15) 40,000
Round trip in Economy 60,000

  3. Wow this is milez look up thing is so useful. Another way to earn united miles that I used was join the wine club thing they have on their website. The first shipment gave 2500 miles (cost around $30) , the second gave 4000 miles (cost around $70). Then cancel. Good thing is you can actually drink the wines….

  4. For instance, it wouldn’t make much sense to have images of bottles of wine on your brochure if your
    business has nothing to do with wine. After some time they should get used to eating these foods and eat them
    without any trouble. Make sure he, she, or all of your children are constantly eating healthy meals and snacks.
