Signing-up for credit cards through partner links earns us a commission. Here’s our full Advertising Policy.

Five years ago, Emily and I started writing Million Mile Secrets during the nights and weekends so that we could share the world of miles and points travel with others.  We consider the blog as our baby.  And as our baby grew, we realized we couldn’t do everything ourselves!

So we brought on a few super-terrific folks to help us find the best deals, so we could tell you more ways to get Big Travel with Small Money.  And it’s worked!  We’ve been able to post more news faster.

But we found the technical demands of maintaining a quickly-growing blog too much to do ourselves.  We wanted to partner with folks who had technical and administrative resources (so we wouldn’t have to do everything!)

And we’re thrilled to share that Million Mile Secrets is now a member of the Bankrate family.  (They own creditcards.com.)

We're Part Of A New Family
Emily and I Are Excited That Million Mile Secrets Is Part of the Bankrate Family!  We’ll Continue to Tell You About the Best Deals.  And Now We’ll Get Great Support From Their IT Folks!

A crucial part of our decision was the ability to keep our complete independence in publishing content.  We made it absolutely clear that we’ll write about whatever we want, as we always have!

We’re Freed Up to Write About More Big Travel With Small Money

The folks at Bankrate support the Million Mile Secrets philosophy of writing about credit cards which don’t pay us a commission, but which readers should know about!

Unlike most acquirers, Bankrate has been terrific!  They have left us alone to manage the blog and we have no revenue, profitability, or growth numbers to hit.  This was very important to us when we decided on a partner.

And we can take advantage of their technical resources to ensure that the blog has more uptime than it did when we were responsible for the IT and administrative aspects of the blog.

During the transition, over the past many months, you may have noticed that nothing has changed on Million Mile Secrets.  And we don’t intend to change anything in the future!  Except…now that we have technical help, you’ve probably noticed we’ve had time to publish more posts, with less down time!

Thanks again for reading Million Mile Secrets over the past 5 years.  And we look forward to many more years together!

Hi Daraius and Emily,

I enjoy your blog, but your daily email newsletter isn’t working anymore – tried two email addresses. Used to get them daily, but nothing for some time now. Can you have your team at Bankrate IT support look into this?



Please send me an email. I have a very interesting story and would like your opinion on it.



Sounds great and happy for you two. Have benefited greatly from your information over the past several years (can you say Companion Pass anybody – twice!). Hope everything works out as continued.
