Workshop for Points/ Miles Maximizing

by James Andrew Scott on March 1, 2012

in Points Training and Conferences, Tips

Courtesy of the Frugal Travel Guy and The Points Guy, I bring you important (?) news.  For those really into making the most out of your points as well as accumulating them, a 2  and 1/2 day conference will be held in Chicago in October of this year.  Yes, you read that right!  A points conference!  Two and a half days!   The rules (and corresponding work-arounds and tricks) for some points programs have become so complex and bewildering that training is now offered.  This course is really for points nerds and consultants only, but I thought I’d pass it along to our readers in case you’re a points junkie like we are.

Here’s a link to the registration:  http://chicagoseminars2012.eventbrite.com/  It will set you back $85 bucks and the hotel is sold out of rooms, but there’s a sister hotel with rooms still available.
