    Hello. I am a mechanic with United at ORD and am trying to figure out what kind of points are the best for me to horde. I don't want anything United related I'm looking for an oh crap I'm stuck and need to get back to ORD card and if I'm stuck United wouldn't be an option. Any suggestions?

    The airlines that hub in Chicago are United and American; it sounds like you're looking to use miles in a "Get-Out-of-Jail-Free" scenario, which means that you might have to eat the cost of a non-SAAver award.

    I'd definitely recommend, then, looking at whether American miles make sense. It's easiest to accure those through purchasing or a credit card bonus; wait for the big 50-60k bonuses to be available again!

    Avios are also great if there's Saver-level space on the American flight you'd need to ORD
