Emily and I were at Frequent Traveler University over the weekend. We had a wonderful time chatting with readers and everyone who stopped by the Million Mile Secrets table!
This was the largest Frequent Traveler University ever and it went off very smoothly! A big thank you to the organizers and everyone who helped make it a success!
Mommy Points and I presented an “Introduction to Miles & Points” in the morning. I’ve presented similar versions of the presentation at previous conferences, so you shouldn’t attend the session if you’ve heard the presentation before.
It is very important to think about YOUR goals (not some random blogger’s goals!) and to set your ethical limits and time spent on the hobby before you dive in. Miles and Points will consume you, so it is best to plan out what makes sense before you start collecting miles and points.
Here’s the Introduction to Miles & Points presentation.
Later, I gave a similar introduction to the (very) basics of miles and points credit cards.
Here’s the Introduction to Miles & Points Credit Cards presentation.
I didn’t attend all the sessions, but my favorite session was Rapid Travel Chai’s presentation on international travel. Many middle aged men dream of sleek convertibles and boats, but I dream about traveling the world one weekend at a time!
If you’ve attended any miles and points conferences you may find this post by Points Summary funny!
And if you missed Frequent Traveler University, there will be another one in Tampa at the Grand Hyatt in Tampa, Florida from September 27 to September 29, 2013. Tickets are available for $100, and rooms at the Grand Hyatt in Tampa start at $119 plus ~$15 in taxes.
Not only will you get some swag, but also the chance to yuk it up with like minded folks!
Emily and I look forward to seeing you at one of these events!
