One of the best tricks miles and points enthusiasts use is concentrating their efforts on collecting transferable points to use on award tickets, hotel stays, and more!
Instead of focusing on earning points in a specific frequent flyer or hotel guest program, folks who collect transferable points have many more options for how they use them!
That’s because you can choose to transfer your points to dozens of different programs.

And remember, you don’t have to fly there and back on the same airline.
