I'm excited that the Points Pals service has only been operational for a little over a week, and I'm already helping folks make their travel dreams come true. This past week while I was away for work and also sick, I got an email from a reader asking how to get to Hawaii using Alaska miles or Chase points. Because I was out of commission for a while, I took a few days to email her back, finally responding that I was really busy would try to look into her trip in a few days. I soon heard back from her that she had already booked the Hawaii trip while waiting to hear back from me. Problem solved! This kind of stuff just warms my heart. Remember, if you want non-expert and quite possibly ill-informed advice about booking rewards, just use the contact form above and I'll get right on it!
