One last reminder that Frequent Traveler University will be held in New York City this weekend. It is still not too late to register.
Ever wanted to learn more about manufactured spending? The best miles and points program? Which credit cards you should use and those you should avoid? The point this weekend is to empower you with knowledge so that you can be the most discerning and savvy traveler out there.
I do these conferences as a labor of love, not due to financial benefit or even to grow my consulting business. The point of FTU is not to gain more Award Expert clients, but to help you do and think like I do when it comes to booking awards.
This weekend, I’ll be speaking on award travel and United Airlines…two of my favorite topics.
When: June 9-10, 2018
Where: 4 West 43rd Street, New York, NY 10036
- Two days of expert-led sessions on Saturday and Sunday
- Lunch on Saturday and Sunday

- Tiffany Funk of One Mile at a Time

- Greg Davis-Kean of FrequentMiler
- Nick Reyes of FrequentMiler
