Since starting this site, the #1 goal has been to spread the word that families can (and should) at least dabble in the world of miles and points in order to both bring kids closer to their relatives, as well as give them a chance to “see the world” without breaking the bank. This morning I had a really unique opportunity to be on the “Good Day Chicago” morning show for a couple minutes in order to give other families a sneak peek into what is possible with miles and points.
Being on live TV is clearly not something that is normally a part of my morning routine, so it is fair to say this was a huge learning curve. Why did I not take a “how to be on live TV” class in college? Still, I didn’t die, didn’t spill anything on myself, didn’t start yelling obscenities in the middle, and hopefully at least gave a small teaser into what is possible in the world of miles and points. Maybe if I had 30 seconds longer I would have given a few more specific pointers on how to get started, but that is what this site is for!
So, if you are brand new to miles and points here is a link to a Beginner’s Guide that will give you some fast and easy tips on how to get started as well as a recent post on some ways I am currently earning miles and points for my own family.
Here is a link to the segment, just don’t laugh at me too much. Thanks to Good Day Chicago for the chance to spread the word about miles and points!
Mom, I promise next time to sit up straighter and wear more lipstick…maybe.
