In our interview series, we always ask, “What do you now know about collecting miles and points which you wish you knew when you started out?”
The most common answer interviewees give is that they wish they would have started sooner. Even if you’re unsure of your travel goals, starting to earn transferable points now will give you lots of options for your future trip plans.
Because transferable points programs have dozens of airline and hotel partners, you’ll have the flexibility to choose where to move your points when you’re ready to use them.
