Thread Details

I have about 19k Turkish airlines miles&smiles point. I am wondering what is the best utilization of this point. Should I convert this to any other program to get a better benefit? Any suggestion would be appreciated. I don't anticipate traveling with Turkish in the near future so keeping the miles as is may not be a good option.

Thanks.

Unfortunately, Turkish Air FF miles are kind of a "dead end." You cannot convert them to any other FF program, whether in Star Alliance or not. I also do not know any US based third party that purchases them


As a side note, you also often do NOT accrue United MileagePlus FF miles on Turkish Air flights. The trade-off for these non-accruing flights are some really great fares from the East Coast.


You can also check FlyerTalk as there are much more knowledgeable folks there to help - they even have a Miles & Smiles forum:
