What is Star Alliance? I mostly fly Southwest and JetBlue, are they included?

Star Alliance is a large airline alliance including among others United and Air Canada. Southwest and JetBlue are not members of any alliance, Southwest doesn’t currently have any airline partners at all. If you don’t want to keep track of what partners your airline has, don’t stuff your head with particulars. While it is a good idea to sign-up for frequent flyer programs of major airlines you fly with, it’s not a good idea to rely on them fully. Getting a travel credit card like the Discover it Miles will add to the miles you earn and the miles are super easy to use – any airline is ok. The Discover it Miles card allows to earn 1.5 miles on all purchases, not only when you buy airline tickets. If it is the first time you have the card, all your first-year miles will be matched at the end of the year. Thus, if you earn 30,000 miles, you get 60,000 miles. Discover made redemptions extremely easy: you just buy an airline ticket and when transaction appears on your statement, you can redeem your miles towards it. Full and partial redemptions are allowed, so no need to worry if you are short of miles. The Discover it Miles card has no annual fee and no foreign transaction fees.
