PointsHound has added Air France and KLM’s Flying Blue program as a points-earning partner.
I love to see new earning partners, even though I’m unlikely ever to credit points for booking a stay to the Flying Blue program (expensive awards, fuel surcharges).
Given earning rates and overall value of miles I prefer to credit points through PointsHound to American. They seem to award fewer US Airways miles, a similar number of Delta miles, and more Hawaiian miles for instance.
United is no longer an earning partner, which shouldn’t surprise since United made an investment in PointsHound competitor Rocketmiles (and the Rocketmiles CEO is a MileagePlus veteran).
And of course a subset of hotels are tagged as ‘DoubleIp’ meaning you earn miles through the site for booking and can still earn hotel points and elite stay credit from the hotel chain.
