2nd Edition: Published August 2021

Do you have a friend that always seems to be flying around the world in First Class and wonder how they afford it? Or maybe you already know they use "frequent flyer miles" but have no idea how to get them yourself. (Hint: You don't need to actually fly to earn them!) Dave Grossman has been "that friend" for over a decade and, in this must-read for anyone with big travel dreams on a small budget, Dave shares all his secrets. You'll learn:

  • The difference between miles and points and how to leverage both
  • How to set your travel goals and make them a quick reality
  • Ways to exponentially increase the number of miles and points you earn
  • How to find those elusive First and Business Class award seats

Please note that this edition of the book is geared towards a US-based audience. While the foundations are the same worldwide, this book primarily references US-based programs and credit cards.

About the Author

Since 2003, Dave Grossman has collected literally millions and millions of frequent flyer miles and hotel points. He's flown around the world in first class seats that would cost $29,000 using frequent flyer miles and a few bucks in tax. And he's stayed in some of the finest hotels - often for free, thanks to miles and points! Dave's hosted two seminars on miles and points at South By Southwest in Austin, and he's been quoted in the Wall Street Journal and Travel + Leisure, published on Bravo TV's JetSet website, and has spoken on the Condé Nast Traveler podcast series. He also writes the blog which helps readers learn how to earn and spend miles and points to travel better.
