Qatar Airways Qsuites with First Class Connections from 85K Each Way

Is there anything better than flying the best business class in the world, Qatar Airways Qsuites? 

Yes, yes there is. It's flying Qatar Airways Qsuites … then connecting through Doha (DOH) and flying in Qatar First Class … all for the price of business class!

We discovered this incredible quirk earlier this week and we still can't stop thinking about – it's an insane value.

The Doha (DOH) to Perth (PER) leg in first class is usually over 100,000 points all on its own. But if you pair it with a Qsuites flight across the Atlantic, you can snag it for as low as 120,000 points total…

Delta to New Zealand for $557 RT

These fares were nothing short of show stoppers. I thought I was seeing things. Was this roundtrip pricing? Is there smudge on my screen? 

Nope. Just an outrageously cheap roundtrip Delta flight to New Zealand from the Bay Area to Auckland (AKL) for just $557.

We love it when Delta slashes fares like this, but we love it even more when there's January availability – peak summer season in New Zealand! 




Cayman Islands from 16K Delta SkyMiles RT

The beautiful blue water, the legendary beaches, the Caribbean vibes … it's all a part of why you want to fly to the Cayman Islands, but flight prices don't always cooperate. 

Enter Delta SkyMiles, giving you a way to use your hard-earned miles without having to shell out tons of cash to make these flights yours. 


Cayman Islands


This week, Delta slashed its SkyMiles rates to Grand Cayman (GCM), including on its new nonstop route from Minneapolis-St. Paul (MSP). Now, travelers in all of these cities can fly to GCM for way, way less this winter.

Travelers nationwide may be writing off trips when all they see is high airfare and yet here we are: Proving that cheap flights and amazing deals to use your points and miles are still out there.

It's been another amazing week for Thrifty Traveler Premium members – especially the ones who booked Qatar Airways Qsuites and First Class for the same low rate, roundtrip flights to New Zealand for $557, and a Delta SkyMiles flash sale to the Cayman Islands.

  • You seem to have lots of good deals however we live in Houston, TX and it seems the low fares rarely originate from Houston, although Bush is an international airport!

  • Your occasional Iberia posts frustrate me. NEVER do I see the point avails that you reference even when I am checking within minutes of getting your Email alerts. This time, I searched the DFW-MAD route via AA as you instructed. I found one date with a 57.5K point 1 way Biz seat in March and a few in Feb and Jan. Nothing in April, May or June and no 34K avail. Checked BOS-MAD and MIA-MAD, they won’t even show the Iberia option and can’t toggle to one way. Seems like clickbait.

  • Does your Thrift Premium service ever include a mix of miles and cash or even gas only for flights from USA to say, Milan? I don’t have tons of points right now and am considering joining this fall.
