Greg and Nick presented and discussed a number of topics.

  • Saturday 830am – 930am – Using Points & Miles to get to Necker Island (Greg / Frequent Miler) – Greg wasn’t able to make it to the Chicago Seminars last year, he and his wife were busy hanging out with Richard Branson on Necker Island — all done with points. He’ll tell his story and hopefully inspire you to up your commitment to points and miles.
  • Saturday 215pm – 315pm – Honeymoon Destination: Earth (Nick Reyes / Frequent Miler) – How a year of collecting miles and connecting dots led to a 4-month honeymoon around the world and how you can plan the ultimate romantic getaway — whether to beautiful beaches or off the beaten track.

  • Saturday 515pm – 615pm – Cards with Benefits (Nick Reyes / Frequent Miler) – Rewards-earning cards are much more than the points and miles associated with them. Nick will review everything about leveraging your card’s ancillary benefits to get an outsized value to save you time and money.

Regular sessions vs Advanced. I have not been to a previous FTU event but have been to Europe and Hawaii twice on miles/points. I have read every speakers blog daily for over a year. Skip the regular sessions and sign up for the advanced??
