Start With the Beginner’s Guide
We were all new at this once! So if you’re just starting out with miles & points, my Beginner’s Guide will show you how this hobby works.
Which Credit Cards Should You Choose?
You’ll always find the best credit card offers in the Hot Deals tab.
Emily and I always share the best offers with our readers, even when they don’t earn us a commission. Because it’s the right thing to do, and we want you to get the most travel from your miles & points!
Before you decide which credit cards to sign-up for, read my posts on:
But I Have Questions!
That’s good! Here’s how to find the answers:
1. Special Series
Check out the “Special Series” tab for information on common questions, like:
- How can I meet credit card minimum spending requirements?
- What’s the best way to get to Disney using miles & points?
- Where can I find the cheapest airfare?
- Can I still get Big Travel if I live or work overseas?
2. You’ve Earned the Miles & Points – What Next?

3. Still Haven’t Found What You’re Looking For?
Often times, we’ve already written about it in previous posts!
You can easily search the site for answers to your questions by using the Google search bar.
4. Stuck? Send a Comment!
Don’t be afraid to ask if you can’t find an answer.
The best place to ask questions is on the “Contact Me“ page. We try our best to personally respond to everyone in a timely fashion (but if I’m traveling please be patient!).
And I encourage everyone in the Million Mile Secrets community to set-up a Gravatar! It helps us get to know you better!
