I always enjoy attending and speaking at FTU (Frequent Traveler University), but I’m particularly excited about the next one: FTU Advanced Minneapolis (June 9 – 11 2017). This one will be different, in a number of positive ways…
Why this FTU is different from all other FTUs
This is the first FTU ever where the schedule has been organized by Stefan Krasowski AKA Rapid Travel Chai. Stefan is a great guy with an unbelievable wealth of travel knowledge. And, Minneapolis is his home town. I’m betting that he’s going to make this one special.
This will be the first ever Delta hub FTU. Delta has been largely ignored or lambasted by the miles & points community for years. True, it can be difficult to get good value from Delta SkyMiles’ miles, but in my opinion their elite program is very good. More importantly, unless you sometimes need to pee before takeoff, Delta is one of the best domestic airlines to actually fly (that’s important, isn’t it?). And, since I’ve been a hub captive for years (I live near the Detroit hub), I have tons of Delta tips and tricks to share, including some that I’ve never shared before.
Excellent keynote speakers. Stefan has lined up television personality Rudy Maxa of Rudy Maxa’s World, and expert photographer Gary Arndt of Everything Everywhere. While I haven’t heard either speak in the past, I’m expecting very good things.
I don’t have any financial incentive to encourage people to come to these events, but I love meeting with readers so I do want you to come. As an incentive for you, FTU organizers have setup a $20 off code for my readers. Register with code FMMSP for $20 off.
The un-discounted prices are $249 for the weekend, or $149 for Saturday only. This code brings prices down to $229 and $129, respectively.
