Daraius Dubash and Emily Jablon have earned and redeemed millions of airline miles and hotel points – most of which they acquired for free and without flying in airplanes or staying in hotels.
Daraius and Emily write the Million Mile Secrets blog to show time-starved folks how, they too, can acquire airline miles and hotel points, and travel very comfortably to see the world, for a fraction of what they would otherwise pay for such travels.
They believe everyone can use airline and hotel loyalty points to travel for free – whether it is a trip in First Class to Thailand or a family visit to grandma in Florida.
By reading Million Mile Secrets you will learn their secrets to fly for much less, stay in wonderful hotels for much less, and rent cars for much less than retail price.
Daraius and Emily have visited over 30 countries in 6 out of 7 continents, and have flown on International First Class (where tickets costs about $20,000 per ticket) to Europe, Asia, and the US, many times for virtually no money. They use their expertise and specialized tools to help their blog readers and their families travel and experience the world like they never thought possible.
As a former Certified Public Accountant (CPA), Daraius roamed the world, as an auditor for a Fortune 500 company, to ensure that rules, regulations, and policies were enforced. He also prepared many tax returns as a volunteer with the AARP.
Daraius now uses his ability to interpret complicated airline rules and marketing promotions – honed from mastering complex accounting rules – to make the most of airline, hotel, and rental car promotions.
But Daraius believes using your miles and points to travel shouldn’t require a degree in Accounting! That’s why they started Million Mile Secrets. Daraius and Emily present the information in a helpful way that anyone can understand.
Emily was a Project Manager for General Dynamics (a Fortune 100 Company) and completed her MBA in 2014. She has worked in the Operations divisions of 2 publicly traded companies.
Busy people don’t have time to study the constantly changing deals, strategies, and requirements. That’s why Daraius and Emily only write about the best offers and most relevant news, including their easy-to-follow analysis that has earned the trust of over 16,000 loyal readers.
Daraius has worked in the Finance, Auditing & Global Marketing divisions of Fortune 500 companies. He has an MBA from the Kellogg School of Management and a Master’s in Engineering Management from the McCormick School of Engineering at Northwestern University.
In his spare time, Daraius loves to plan his future travels and plot how to increase their stash of miles and points (currently over 3 million). He loves listening to classical music, reading non-fiction (history and biography), eating good ethnic food, and taking long walks.
Emily loves to Latin dance, listen to music, spend time with friends, and help plan future trips.
