There are LOTS of ways to earn miles & points.

I talk a lot about credit card sign-up bonuses because they are the fastest way to get Big Travel with Small Money.  But there are plenty of other ways to earn, too!

One of the best things you can do, especially if you’re a beginner to miles & points, is register for every airline and hotel free loyalty program.

Miles & Points Will Come From Unexpected Places When You’re Registered for Lots of Different Loyalty Programs

This is a good idea even if you don’t have any travel plans in the works.  I’ll show you why!

More Chances to Earn Points by Enrolling in Loyalty Programs!

Signing-up for different loyalty programs will give you more opportunities to earn rewards.

It’s a good idea to sign up for ALL airline and hotel loyalty programs.  You probably won’t use them all, but you never know!

Once you’re enrolled, you can earn points by making your online purchases through airline shopping portals.  You can even earn points for eating at restaurants that participate in an dining rewards program (like this current promotion from IHG!)

And of course, you will earn points by flying with airlines and staying at hotels.  You won’t earn points unless you are registered with their rewards program!

Rewards Can Come From Unexpected Places

You’re passing up free points if you aren’t registered for loyalty programs.

For example, a Million Mile Secrets team member recently received a surprise 1,000 points from IHG for his birthday!  He said it took him 15 seconds to register to receive the points!

Even if you don’t have immediate travel plans, you can effortlessly earn points that you might be able to use in the future by becoming a member of travel rewards programs.

You don’t need top-tier elite status to benefit from a loyalty program.  Once you’re signed-up, you will receive special promotions and targeted offers in your email, and you will be ready if a great deal comes along!

And you may even get free points! 🙂
