Planning AGR Trip DEN - SAC, 10/16/18

DEN - SAC = 15,042 pts. (31 hr trip)

 

DEN - GJT = 10,764 pts. ( 8 hr trip)

 

Was looking for ways to save pts. or $. 

Am I too tired or what?

Since AGR 2.0 redemption is based on price, the point rates do not always make sense. Also, many short routes out of DEN have fares that may be higher than what seems to be normal. Thisis done to discourage short distance travel taking seats over long distance travelers.
Take it easy .......

Take the train instead and enjoy the ride!

The view is much better at 3 feet than it is at 30,000 feet!
