If you look at my multi-part trip report flying Lufthansa you may say “how did he find that route”. Or, if you are having a hard time even using the “E7” Essentials links to find the flights you want on Delta, you may need to think about help from Adam, my recommended award booker.

I have a detailed post  HERE  you can look at to find out just what he and Juicy Miles does. For those who don’t want to or have the time to search for the perfect routes, let his service do it for you.

Anyway, this week you have a chance to win a FREE* award booking  [using your points]  from Juicy Miles (*Round the World trip bookings are NOT included). The rules for SWAG Saturday are HERE if you have never seen them. I will pick the winner late Friday evening on the 15th.

For a chance to win, all you have to tell me is where in the world you would want to visit if you were to use Juicy Miles to book your trip by commenting on the blog below in this post! Have fun – René

  1. I have used Juicy Miles before and would love a free booking. Probably go on safari again in Africa.

  2. I would like to visit India for the first time – I’m not sure which state yet…

  3. Juicy Miles would be awesome! I would use them to visit New York City for the first time. I never seem to make it further than the airports.

  4. Chile. Santiago Chile SCL and then on to Valdivia ZAL. I’m a ATL hub captive. Direct flight is 9 hrs from ATL. There are no connecting flights so I’ve resigned to the fact that there isn’t a strategy to find better award resemptions for that route with DL. I have BA avios for the SCL to ZAL or any other part of Chile.

  5. I would love help getting a Saver award to Buenos Aires next year in Business. All I’m finding right now is peak awards.

  6. I have a trip planned to marsh harbor in the Bahamas for June 20, 2015 BUT what I really need help with is a trip to the Galapagos July 25th-August 8th for myself and two children. Our closest airport is MCI but I usually plan my trips either ORD or DEN. Would love the help. Thanks!!

  7. Have lots of different miles but can’t seem to get from NYC to CPH in business. At least not yet. Would love the help!

  8. I would like to fly business class to Vienna with a return from Berlin next August/September.

  9. Trying to book a family vacation to the Virgin Islands or Hawaii as a way to say “thanks”‘ to my parents for putting up with me all these years!

  10. I’d love to go on a trip to Africa with a stop in Europe (Spain?) before headin back home.

  11. Angela only one of us can go! Lol Malé 100%

    Been saving for it but keep giving away my skymiles to friends in need. Best mate father just had a heart attack and likely won’t make it.
    Gotta send him home in class.

  12. Sri Lanka for me! I had a trip all planned a few years ago when the devastating sunami hit the region, and I had to cancel the entire trip. I have been jonesing to go ever since!!

  13. I could really use help getting back from Chile in March 2015! Thanks for the contest.

  14. I have always wanted to go abroad and volunteer my time at a local school, farm, village, etc. some of the recent places I’ve looked at are Cambodia and Vietnam. Unfortunately the cost to get there is quite overwhelming.

  15. I’d love to get some professional help (yes, I know how that sounds) to get to Bali next year!

  16. I’d take another bike trip but this time I’d take my husband to Germany since he’s always wanted to go there.

  17. Scandinavia (Copenhagen and Stockholm) are at the top of our list, but New Zealand and Australia are close behind.

  18. My hubbie was stationed in Cyprus in the 70’s and we’d now like to revisit it and go to Turkish Northern Cyprus.

  19. Oh I have a good idea for getting help with awards points!
    I’d like to be booked on flights MOST LIKELY to get me bumped, during a time when I have no constraints!,, 🙂 isn’t that a cool wish!

  20. I’d like to get an award to Australia and NZ maybe even via Europe if that is possible in business.

  21. There are so many choices! I really want to see Australia, New Zealand, and the South Pacific.

  22. Would love to take a trip to Hong Kong and Japan, and have the opportunity to fly in the Helli Kitty plane!

  23. Juicy Miles I’ll be using you for a trip to South America and to the Galapagos too.

  24. I’m trying to plan a trip for my family next year to Hawaii. An award booking service would be tremoundously helpful!

  25. i am now in india volunteering as a teacher in one of the most rural parts of the most rural state in the country, jharkhand. i am desperate to shoot home for christmas. help me not be desperate!

  26. I’d love to try and coordinate a flight with a timeframe that will allow me to take advantage of a friend’s rate on a European cruise. Trying to plan a cruise that offers only select dates that sails on Sundays with a free flight isn’t the easiest booking!

  27. I would use it to find low level return ticket from the ORD Seminars in October! haha No, I would really like to go to Maldives in 2015.

  28. I want to take my family to Bali to visit their uncle who lives there with a stop in fiji/ tahiti via Europe or Dubai. We were supposed to go to St. Thomas this past Saturday but my daughter broke her leg 12 hours before we were supposed to leave. Ugh.

  29. I would like to visit both Kenya and South Africa but would be grateful if I am able to get to either one.

  30. Used Juicy Miles for our upcoming trip to BA/SCL, and they were great. Next time I think I’d try for Australia (to dive the Great Barrier Reef), with maybe some Indonesia / Thailand / island hoping thrown in!

  31. I’ve worked with Christopher at Juicy Miles and he is great. I plan on using them next year to book our trip to Bora Bora. Next year is our 15th anniversary and Bora Bora (the Hilton property) is the most beautiful, romantic place we have been. It would be great to win the Juicy Miles booking service for this trip.

  32. I would like to take the family (and some extended family) to Hawaii – first class, of course!

  33. My 5 y.o. just received his passport and lists South America or Africa as his travel goals!

  34. I think I would go to Bali. I have been there many times before, but it always draws me back.

  35. I would so love to go to NZ and or Aus or South Pacific. I have never been able to come close to that side of the world and know that points and miles are my only source to get there. Winning this would be a big step closer to the dream.

  36. Multiple people have told me that Santorini is the most beautiful place they have ever been so that would be tops on my list!

  37. The wife and I are dying to go to Italy. We are just struggling with what our itinerary should be. Of course, we want to use as many points as possible to save money!

  38. I’d like to go RDU-LHR (or GSO-LHR or CLT-LHR) as my son and future daughter-in-law will be moving to Cambridge for 2 years in September where she starts her PhD program there !

  39. New Zealand, or Iceland, or a trip to Montana & Glacier National Park after I move back to the UK!

  40. Austria. Would like to visit Vienna, Prague and Budapest (yes, I know the later two aren’t in Austria!).
