Quora is a question-and-answer website where questions are created, answered, edited and organized by its community of users. Silver team helps people who have financial question, here’s the top 3 of the week:


Silver Answer: United because their award availability is the best. You can get access to a lot of flights through their partners in the Star Alliance. I flew on Lufthansa First Class for 140,000 United miles from Hong Kong to New York and it was definitely worth it. At the end of the day, when you understand how to use credit cards, 140,000 miles is not a lot…


Silver Answer: I would say above 650 should be enough. If you get denied, please call their reconsideration line as they tend to reconsider your situation and approve your application in most cases. Just make sure to be persistent!

Comment: Delta may be the worst of the major American airlines, the voucher is my girlfriend’s as a result of a complete travel nightmare Delta caused her (took them over 26hrs to get her back to SF from NYC, 18 of which she spent in JFK, 3+ of which were on a plane!). She doesn’t ever want to fly Delta again, I can’t blame her so rather than just throw the voucher away we’re looking at options – perhaps a far higher rated partner airline of Delta?

Silver Answer: Sell it on craigslist for a discount.
