Our Facebook group moderator and loyal Alaska customer, Sarah, just sent me the following from Alaska:

Our Fast Track to Status promotion has just been extended to the end of the year. Fly now through Decem‌ber 31, 20‌21 and earn 50% more elite-qualifying miles*. No registration necessary—so book and get a boost to your EQMs.

New to all of this? My “introduction to miles and points” book, MilesTalk: Live Your Wildest Travel Dreams Using Miles and Points is available on Amazon and at major booksellers.

I got "in the game" in 2003 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! A few years ago I realized many of my friends actually thought I was paying for these!! So I started sharing my tips. It's long been a passion, but when I hosted a session on Miles and Points at this year's South by Southwest festival, my love of the game intensified and this blog was born.
