A Few Great Miles Sites

In the last couple of months, I have been getting a lot of questions about miles and points. Now, I love me some miles, and have a credit card where I get miles, sign up for promotions through Hilton and American Airlines, and have been known to go on a rare mileage run. But as much as I believe that business travelers should get all the miles they can, this is not a site devoted to miles. There are so many great miles sites that do an amazing job of helping people get all they can, and there is no reason for me to compete on that front. Since my readers still have questions, I want to post some of my favorite miles sites for those of you who are interested.

FlyerTalk. There is so much information on this site that it can be a bit overwhelming. But if you want knowledge about miles and points, this should be your first stop every time.

Loyalty Traveler. Want to know the latest hotel promotions and how to use them to your best advantage? Ric Garrido will tell you. He talks about all the major rewards programs, and some I’ve never heard of. But it’s all very helpf!

Travel Hacking Cartel. If you don’t want to have to search various sites, and don’t mind paying a little, TravelHacking will do a lot of the work for you. They also guarantee that you will get one plane ticket every three months–that’s four per year. A pretty good deal, if you ask me.

View From The Wing. Gary Leff knows everything. At least, sometimes that’s how it seems. So if you have any questions about, well, anything travel related, get thee to his site.

Anyone have a favorite site that’s not mentioned here?

And don’t forget! Today is the last day to enter the National Emerald Club Executive Elite giveaway.
