“This Hobby Provides Me the Equivalent of a $20,000 per Year Raise”

Welcome to the next installment of our interview series where folks share their thoughts about Big Travel with Small Money!

Miles & Points Interview:  Travel Miles 101

Alexi Zemsky and Brad Barrett write Travel Miles 101 to show folks how to earn and redeem miles the easy way.

They offer a free 15-day email course to get you up to speed on the basics of both earning and redeeming travel miles & points.  And as part of the course, they offer members access to a private Facebook group community with over 2,000 members.

And they say the combined knowledge of their graduates in this group is an excellent resource for crowdsourcing answers to specific questions.  It’s a safe place for people to ask questions and share successes and frustrations as they learn more about travel rewards.
