Today’s Sunday Someday is Abu Dhabi.

The best time to visit Abu Dhabi is from the winter.

You can fly to Abu Dhabi using airline miles and points.

The least expensive use of airline miles to Abu Dhabi if you want to fly in Business Class or First Class is using American Airlines on Etihad.

You’ll pay 67,5000 American Airlines miles to fly 1-way in Business Class and 1-way in First Class is 90,000 American Airlines miles.

If you want to fly coach, using United Airlines miles (or Chase Ultimate Rewards points transferred to United Airlines), you’ll pay 42,500 United Airlines miles to fly 1-way in coach.

Chase Sapphire Preferred® Card

The Chase Sapphire Preferred® Card is the best card to get started in the world of miles and points. It is the first card you should get to start traveling for free because the welcome offer is 60,000 points after spending $4,000 in the first three months.
My favorite perks about this card are earning 5X points on travel when booked through the Chase portal (2X if direct purchase), 3X points on dining, $50 yearly credit on hotels booked through the Chase portal, no foreign transaction fees, and transferring points to 13 airline and hotel partners like Hyatt, United, and Southwest.

Chase Freedom Unlimited®

The Chase Freedom Unlimited® is one of my favorite cards for earning cash back card and travel rewards. It offers a welcome offer of an additional 1.5% cash back on all your purchases up to $20,000 your first year.
My favorite perks about this card are earning 5% cash back on travel booked through the Chase Travel Portal, 3% cash back at drugstores and restaurants (including delivery and takeout), 1.5% cash back on all other purchases and no annual fee. When paired with cards like the Chase Sapphire Reserve® Card or Ink Business Cash® Credit Card, you can use your points to travel for free.
