What is MilesTalk?

My chance to give back. I got in the game in 2003 with a "mistake rate" in Bora Bora and since then I've collected literally millions and millions of frequent flyer miles and hotel points. I've flown around the world in first class seats that would cost $29,000 using frequent flyer miles and a few bucks in tax. And I've stayed in some of the finest hotels - all for free!  I've hosted two seminars on miles and points at South By Southwest in Austin, and have been quoted in the Wall Street Journal, published on Bravo TV's JetSet site, and spoken on the Condé Nast Traveler podcast series.

A few years ago I realized many of my friends actually thought I was paying for my flights!! So I started sharing my tips. My favorite thing in the world is helping others have the experiences I do, so please follow along and help me help you.
