On Miles and Points

For those of you that don’t know (I can’t figure out who that might be), I’m a bit of a frequent flyer mile geek. Over the past 5 years, I’ve amassed well over 2 million points/miles, and they’ve bought such things as:

2 upgrades to Business Class to Rome
2 free Business Class tickets to Rome
7 free coach tickets to Puerto Rico
4 free First Class tickets to Seattle
3 free coach tickets to Tallahassee
3 free Business Class tickets to Rome
Various free hotel rooms around the world

Most of this has come from the smart people at www.flyertalk.com. There’s no question I have an addiction, and spend too much time there. But there are so many smart people here that know how to maximize earning miles. I’ve learned to do all the same things I normally do, finding ways to earn miles for pretty much everything I buy.

There’s also a wealth of travel information about pretty much anywhere you want to go, and how to get there. If you haven’t been there, I’d suggest you visit today.

And let me know if you decide you want a couple hundred thousand frequent flyer miles. I’ll be happy to show you how.
