AWARD TRAVEL 101

 

One of my goals with this site is to introduce the world of award travel to others. I remember how daunting and confusing it was when I first ventured into this world, so I wanted to create a central source for all things award travel. Here you can find links to articles and information to help you better understand how to get started in the points and miles game – or as I call it, Award Travel 101.

As I get more and more articles posted, I will continue to update this page with those posts. I will also post some more complicated or award travel hacks in here under Award Travel 202. If you are brand new to the award travel game, I would recommend that you stick with the Award Travel 101 information.

Lastly, you can also find all of the links to my most popular series’ on getting to various locations around the globe using 3 of the major transferable currencies – American Express Membership Rewards points (MRs), Chase Ultimate Rewards points (URs) and Citi ThankYou Points (TYPs).
