  1. Not all (often, most) award availability is listed on the airline’s website, especially for partner airlines!

  2. Take the time to email bloggers directly when you have a question – after reading all the prior comments, of course!

  3. Brief layovers can be your friend! Connecting flights less than 500 miles from your final destination are a great way to boost your overall mileage.

  4. Make sure you concentrate your earning as much as possible to one program, and always have your card on you!

  5. Subscribe to all of your tried-and-true travel bloggers here. You will find out SO much about the world of accruing miles and points for fantastic travels. Go on a MegoDo to meet them too! Thanks for the contest.

  6. DON’T get cards that just give you money to spend on airline tickets – get cards from which you can transfer points TO the airline’s Frequent Flyer program!!!

  7. Have a good system in place to keep tabs on all the points (whether it be an online program or a simple Excel chart.)
    And, follow the blogs for the latest in amazing deals!

  8. Sign up for every program that you can. You just never know when that point/mile account number will make the difference.

  9. embrace credit cards (no debit cards allowed) only if you can pay it off each month

  10. Never leave points on the table, and look to maximize your spend efficiently by using the right credit cards.

  11. For each category of spending (restaurant/gas/travel), figure out which credit card offers the best miles/points and use appropriately.

  12. Focus activity on one airline alliance, even if that occasionally entails less convenient routings.

  13. When booking award tickets, always see about adding further destinations on to your ticket. The mileage required may even be less than the amount required for a shorter trip!

  14. I shared tips on spending miles with a stranger last flight last week. We have become friends and found out that we have something in common in term of research/work!

  15. Take advantage of a decent credit card sign up bonus and use that card for business expenses until you meet the minimum spend requirement

  16. Do not be afraid to diversify your portfolio of points and miles. You never know when a few points in that oddball program might come in handy.
