We are planning a trip to Italy from the US a year from now. My wife has upward of 76K points and and I have 54K with American. Our plan is to get a credit card that will give us 50K for an intro bonus. My question revolves around one of her getting round trip tickets for both of us vs me each of us getting round trip, her one way and me the other. Before we apply for the card, I want to know if there would be an issue If she did it, the 126K will likely not be enough for two sets of RT. Plus my 54K would just be sitting there. If I got the card, then I would have 104K and she would have 76K and each of us would handle one way for both. Effectively, we would be traveling on two separate itineraries.
I have read that while it is not illegal to the latter, it can get tricky. Is that so? Or is it enough to show that we do have return tickets albeit on a separate itinerary? Please let us know as soon as possible.
