Airline miles (SoraChika route introduction) / Updated on Mar. 10

2019-03-10

Today this blog will introduce the means of exchanging points from points of point site to ANA miles.

Using this technique you can exchange points of point site (equivalent to 1 point for 1 yen) to ANA miles at a rate of 81%.

It may be worth losing exchange rate, but AMA miles are worth more than 2 yen by converting it to an award ticket.

What is airline miles?

This is an abbreviation for “mileage service by airline”, it is an airline point service.

Every time you board an airplane, you earn points according to the distance you got on board.

When the points reach a certain amount, you can get award tickets etc.

This point is called “Aireline Miles” or “Miles”.

What is the value of airline miles?

Airline miles can be exchanged for award tickets or electronic money.

1 airline mile can be exchanged to 1 yen of electronic money.

The mile is demonstrated by exchanging for award tickets.

Moreover, the more you exchange for a ticket with a higher fare, the higher airline miles value will be .

Basically 1 mile is worth two yen or more.

And award tickets to be great will serve also to the family.

Please look at this entry as we are discussing in detail here.

How to earn airline miles?

There are mainly three ways to earn airline miles.

There is another two way, but I omit them in this article because there are few opportunities.

This blog explains them one by one.

  • Bording
  • Using credit cards
  • Using point sites

Bording

First of all, how to earn airline miles by boarding.

As you know, you can earn airline miles by airplane’s flight distance.

For example, you earn about 20,000 airline miles when you board San Jose from Tokyo.

If you have many business trips, you can earn a lot of miles.

But this blog does not pick up this way because it is normal way.

How many times can we get award tickets?

In the case of ANA, if you have 12,000 airline miles you can get award tickets for Tokyo – Osaka.

When you have a flight for Tokyo – Okinawa, the mile is a little less than 1,000 airline miles.

In this case, you can obtain an award ticket by boarding 13 times. It reaches the award ticket in 7 round trips.

As you can see, it is difficult to earn the miles in this way.

Using credit cards

Next, how to earn the miles by using credit cards.

This way is so populer.

Basically, paying 100 yen with credit card will save 0.5 to 1 mile. Using a high-ranked card, and using a little more technique will be about 1.5 miles maximum.

You can earn airline miles at a good rate by using techniques that this blog will introduce on this blog.

However, this method has limitations.

That is that you can not spend more than your income.

However, this method is also very important.

In the future on this blog also write articles focusing on the credit card return rate, annual fee etc.

Using point sites

In this way, you can use point sites such as Moppy introduced in another entry on this blog. This way is the most important in this blog.

Points of the point site can be exchanged to the miles.

And you can earn income without working at the point site.

For example, you can earn 10,000 points (= 10,000 yen) just by applying through Moppy when you issue a credit card.Of course, you can earn a credit card company’s enrollment service separately.

In addition, when you buy something via the point site, you can also receive points 3times. (Points of Internet shopping site (Rakuten Super Point etc), Points of the credit card, Points of the point site.)

Besides, there is a monitor promotion on the point site. That means you can earn 50% of the meal cost as points by eating at a restaurant and writing a questionnaire.

How to exchange points of the point site to aireline miles

Points of the point site can be exchanged directly to airline miles. The exchange rate is 50% with this methods.
