** You can sweeten the deal if you have a premium card like the Chase Sapphire Reserve (CSR), AMEX Platinum, etc. For example with the CSR your points are worth 1.5¢ each instead of just 1¢. So a $240 RT flight to Aruba would normally cost 24000 points (already a great deal), but with the CSR you would only pay 24000/1.5 = 16,000 points! And another good thing is that you will still earn miles on your trip even though you purchased it with points because Chase would essentially be paying American Airlines for your flight, so technically it's a paid flight not a mileage flight. So at the end of the day you spend 16k points for a RT flight to the Caribbean and you still earn about 8400 miles with whatever airline you can credit your flight to at 100%. Lastly you could also use part of your $300 airfare credit with the CSR to pay for this flight.
