SANTA MONICA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--PointHub (http://www.pointhub.com/), a free loyalty program shopping and management destination, revealed today that there are thousands of airline flights to popular U.S. cities available for Thanksgiving travel using frequent flyer miles and rewards points.

“PointHub is the solution to help consumers stop losing $16 billion annually in unused frequent flyer miles and rewards points because it’s safe, free and makes booking reward travel easy”

“Many people think it is too late to use rewards to book travel this Thanksgiving, but our search shows there are thousands of rewards flights still available on most of the major airlines. The high cost of holiday travel might prevent some people from visiting their families, but frequent flyer miles and reward points can make their reunion possible,” said Justin Byers, PointHub Founder. “With one search, PointHub makes it easy to find and book rewards travel for free. Users no longer have to remember multiple loyalty account numbers and passwords, blackout dates and restrictions, or search many sites to find their best value booking option.”

Based on research from PointHub’s proprietary Cash vs. Points® Recommendation Engine, there are 8,467* airline rewards flights available from New York, for example, to the following four popular destinations: Los Angeles (2,034), Miami (1,195), Chicago (1,757), and Detroit (883); 2,598 are available from Los Angeles to New York.

PointHub goes beyond answering the question, “Can I use my rewards points when making travel plans?” with its breakthrough Cash vs. Points® Recommendation Engine, which shows consumers whether they should use their points or not. After eliminating blackout periods and cross-referencing factors such as redemption fees, elite status opportunities, point expiration risk, and travel preferences, PointHub provides side-by-side “best value” travel recommendations that can actually be booked using cash or rewards points. PointHub is free and eliminates the need to visit multiple sites and remember multiple account numbers and passwords to book award travel, saving consumers countless hours and leaving more money for them to spend while on vacation.

“PointHub is the solution to help consumers stop losing $16 billion annually in unused frequent flyer miles and rewards points because it’s safe, free and makes booking reward travel easy,” add Byers. “Since PointHub’s August launch, our users have saved $545,750 in airfare and hotels using their rewards programs,” says Byers.
