Just had a very good experience booking a flight to Atlantis for next May thru SPGFLIGHTS. It only cost me 33400 points flying with Continental and the transaction was extremely easy. Had to coordinate my husband's flight with our Citibank Premier Pass points and that went very well too. So I'm all set for my trip to the Bahamas for next year. Just have to call Continental so we can sit together. LOL :whoopie:

Actually I misspoke, it cost me 25,000 Amex points. The 33400 points were for the Citi Premier pass. :doh: I keep getting them confused.

Is that cost round trip or each way?

Also, where are the flights originating and are they direct flights?

Hello Everyone,

I used spgflights.com for the booking. It really was quite simple. I'm leaving out of Boston May 2nd. 6:00 AM. We have a short layover in New Jersey and will arrive in Nassau at 11:45 AM. The airfare was quite low on the Continental website $328.00 pp. also. Therefore, I only had to use 25,000 Amex points for one round trip ticket. I didn't get the 5000 points either, so I figured I got a pretty good deal.

That would then be valued at 1.3 cents per point. Great to hear the new site worked for you!
