There are moments that remind me of why this “points business” is important for my family. Here are two of those moments from the last 24 hours.

Story time with a Grandma from several states away.

“Pretend” nap-time (don’t be fooled!) with a Grandma that she has been lucky enough to see nine different times in her first 18 months due to stalking killer airfare deals and using points. For the record, Grandpa was here, too!

Without points and great deals, we would not be able to afford for that to happen with that kind of frequency. Long after my miles and points accounts are depleted and after the credit card tricks have been turned, no one can take away those moments. That’s the point and it makes it all worth it!

  1. What a cute baby! It’s so nice to hear about others being able to spend more time with their loved ones with miles and points. That’s what it’s all about! 🙂
