So, not in 2008 because because I couldn't find the flights, but I am going to Asia in Feb 2009! Woo.

The ultimate goal is to get to Thailand on this trip, but I'm going to Singapore first because that's the closest I could get for free. There are virtually no reward flights on Northwest to Bangkok, Thailand. But Singapore sounds cool, eh? And the flight goes through Tokyo. And the flights around Asia are super-cheap.

How did I get 60,000 miles, considering I don't travel on Northwest that much? It was pretty tricky...
  • 25,000 miles for getting a Northwest Worldperks Visa
  • 20,000 points for getting a Starwood Preferred Guest (SPG) Amex
  • 10,000 SPG points for opening an Ameritrade account and keeping it open for 9 months
  • 3,000 points or so from using my SPG Amex
  • 5,000 miles as a bonus for transferring 20,000+ points to Northwest from SPG
