Travel for Free: A Miles and Points Primer

This session requires RSVP, and access will only be available to badge types listed under “Primary Access.”

Last year, over 100 fans of miles and points gathered for the first SXSW meet up on travel hacking. This year, join Dave Grossman from MilesTalk.com and Richard Kerr, founder of the Travel Hacking 101 community, for a workshop that will outline the best ways to use miles to your advantage in a business - for free flights and hotel stays.

We'll start with the basics of airline alliances and how to best use that to your advantage and then move into using both signup bonuses and category spend to double or even triple the rewards you earn from ordinary business spending and maximize your free trips. We'll also show you some outrageously luxurious trips you can take with your new miles collection.

The last 30 minutes will be Q&A and group discussion.
