I wrote earlier about Frequent Traveler University in Washington, DC. Well, tickets for Frequent Flyer University from April 26, 2013 to April 28, 2013 at the Hilton McLeans Tyson’s corner are available now!
The tickets cost $100 per person and include cocktails on the 26th evening and coffee & tea in the morning & lunch on the 27th & 28th. The Hilton Mcleans Tyson’s Corner is available at a discounted rate of ~$100 per night including taxes.
Here’s a link to the preliminary schedule. I’ll be presenting a session on getting started with miles & points. Other confirmed speakers include Ben from One Mile at a Time, Gary from View from the Wing, Summer from Mommy Points, & Steve Belkin from Book Your Award.
Emily & I really enjoy meeting folks at the travel conferences and look forward to seeing you in Washington, DC!

I initially planned on giving one lucky winner the chance to purchase a coach seat on the domestic portion of the Star Mega DO 4 along with a $500 gift card to cover a portion of the winner’s expenses.
However, I’ve got access to 4 more tickets on the Mega DO, and I’ve randomly drawn 4 winners who can now buy tickets to a sold out event! But I can’t include a $500 gift card for these 4 tickets.
To mange your high expectations up front, my contest is a poor man’s version of a Star MegaDO4 giveaway.
Star Mega DO4 is the fourth iteration of the Star Mega Do, which is billed as a “once-in-a-lifetime” experience where you can fly on a plane with other frequent fliers and mile junkies, hob-nob with airline and hotel executives including an update from United CEO Jeff Smisek!
I was on Star Mega Do 3 last year and had a great time, but won’t be able to attend this year.
Here’s the complete schedule of Star Mega DO4.
Unlike other contests where you can win a paid seat on the domestic portion of the Star Mega DO4, my contest is a bit more no-frills. As part of my sponsorship with Star Mega Do4, I have one coach seat reserved on the domestic portion of the trip. Continue reading

There’s much more to life than miles and points, and no matter how bad we think we have it, many others have it much worse. We’ll never experience centuries of oppression, hatred, and disdain just for being born into a family of “untouchables.”
