Expert Help With Frequent Flyer Programs and Mileage Awards!


B.A., Government, Dartmouth College

My Expert Service

Frequent flyer programs and hotel loyalty programs have never been more complex and confusing. Award seats have never been more scarce. The average traveler stands barely any chance of redeeming miles or points for that dream vacation you thought was within reach! One reason: veteran frequent flyers with insider knowledge snap up most of the award inventory the moment it becomes available -- they know the programs and rules better than most airline employees! I'm one of them -- and I can help you! I've earned millions of miles and redeemed them for more than $100,000 worth of free travel worldwide! I've been a top-tier elite program member with Continental, Northwest, United, Delta and other carriers, plus the Hilton and Marriott hotel chains. You know those folks you see sitting in first class without paying, or heading overseas for summer vacation without sweating the expense? I'm one of them. And it's not because I have friends in the business. It's because I know the system and my options. Let me see what I can do to get you up front where the free drinks are, or over to Paris or Rome for a handful of dollars! Suppose you want to... * Save miles toward a specific award * Know your options for transferring miles between programs * Analyze whether it's smarter to redeem miles for an award or just buy the ticket * Learn the obscure partner award options the airline's own agents may not known * Maximize your chances of an upgrade on those long intercontinental legs I'll share twenty years of loyalty program experience and help you make the best of your miles! Can I make award seats or upgrades materialize where none exist? No. But I can help you spend your miles wisely, optimize your chances of redemption success, and know your options! Consultations by live chat or email only.
