When I attended the Chicago Seminars last month, we were told that a crew from ABC’s Nightline would be there filming in order to run a segment on miles and points collecting. They were not allowed to film portions of sessions that included “secret” information, but they were allowed to film some general information. Additionally, they did a feature of Rick, The Frugal Travel Guy. I know that there are some who are upset at any additional exposure miles and points collecting gets. There certainly is some risk of it getting “too big for its own good”, and going past that “tipping point” where it no longer works for anyone. On the other hand, we all first found out about this game somehow, and I welcome new miles and points collectors with open arms. Since I am someone who blogs, it should be no surprise that I am a believe that most* information should be shared with anyone who is interested.
Regardless of your opinion on how much of this info should be shared, this is a nice five minute piece on what we do. In fact, I bet that many of you that attended the Seminars can spot yourselves in the clip! My favorite outcome of this segment is that my mom now wants to come to the Chicago Seminars with me next year! I’m tentatively scheduled to do a session on the Grand Slam at the Chicago Seminars next year, so if you are interested in hearing about that or many of the other awesome topics that will be covered there, pencil in the weekend of Sept. 14-16 (though not sure if those dates are set in stone) in Chicago next year. You can even meet the now famous Frugal Travel Guy. 😉
In case you missed it last night, here is a link to watch the Nightline segment online.
