Howdy! I have an electronic voucher for $87 that expires tomorrow night. Would like to use it in conjunction with a bunch of AGR points to buy a roundtrip fare to NYC next spring. 

 

I can't seem to find a way on their site to combine these two particular payment options. The eVoucher works if I choose dollars/money as a payment choice, but when I switch to viewing prices with points, I don't see anywhere to input the eVoucher code then. I know you can combine an eVoucher with credit/debit cards, but I don't see how to combine it with rewards points.

 

Is this possible?

I'd call an AGR agent and see if they can book for you.

If you are unable to make it work with an awards redemption, the eVoucher can always be applied to a future trip which is slightly more than the value of the voucher (thus enabling you to receive full value, but also meaning you would have to fork over a few bucks) which you may or may not actually end up taking. If you don't take it, you can cancel for credit towards a trip you will actually take.

Thanks! I had a sort of hybrid idea. I booked a trip to NYC for next April. (I'm in Pittsburgh, so a business class seat is only a day trip and came in at around a hundred bucks for one way.) Minus the $87 voucher, I had to pay a pittance.

 

I'm now going to book the return trip with some points.  :)  Separate trips a few days apart.  :) Almost a free trip.  And with the travel insurance a tacked on for a few more bucks, I'm pretty safe now and got to use the voucher after all.
