Reason: make more visable
Please note that it is usually very difficult to find a flight for 25k miles. On average, most flights I see are 40k round trip.
International flights are VERY hard to find. Even though flights to Asia are listed on their tables, if you try to book a flight to Bangkok, for example, they tell you that the "low priced flights are sold out". I actually tried booking at their max 365 days in advance, and it was still "sold out".
Bottom Line: This is still a good deal, but you will probably only get 1-2 free round trip out of this.
I did cancel the card few months ago, and applied just now and will be informed the result.
Soon, I checked my email, instantly I receive the approval email.
But nothing for my husband yet, no email about approval or reject.
Updated: My husband receive an email regarding the application and it is still pending upon review.
