Milelion-iPayMy webinar materials are now up!

Thank you again to the 60 or so of you who joined me for the introduction to miles earning workshop hosted last night. It was great to see so many of you (albeit online- we really should do a physical meet up one of these days) at the event and although the material we covered was pretty basic, I hope it nonetheless served as a good refresher (or primer for those of you who were completely new!)

The materials for the first webinar are now up and you can view a recording here. Be warned that I speak progressively faster as the webinar goes on, but I’m told if you play the recording backwards you can hear the secret code to enter on the SQ website to unlock saver award space on SQ25. Or so the legend goes.

An updated version of the slides I used can be found here. In the appendix you’ll find some useful resources and backup slides with more details on different cards.

Do remember to register for Thursday’s session if you haven’t already done so. This Thursday, we will be looking at what to do with all those miles you’ve earned- what frequent flyer program should you join? What should you spend your miles on? How can you improve your chances of snagging award space? How can you minimize surcharges on awards?

The webinar will take place at the same time (7pm), same place (anywhere you are!)

Register now for Session 2: Top Tips for Redeeming Air Miles

Hope to see another good turnout and to answer as many of your questions as I can

P.S- if you’ve still got pending questions from last night’s session please feel free to post them below. I realise I still owe you an answer on MatchMove, a program I’m vaguely aware of but never researched in detail. Look out for an article on that hopefully over the weekend

  1. I listened to the recording last night and I enjoyed it very much! It summarises systematically everything that I have been trying to tell my friends about the miles game! Now I just need to point them to your website! Well done, Aaron!

    I would love to know how to redeem miles on Star Alliance airlines and also learn more about Lifemiles. Never really got down to examining these in details. So I’m using my miles for KF exclusively now. 😓 Will be good to expand my options. Do an advanced travel hack series!

    1. thank you! I had fun doing it too and glad you could understand despite my 120 words a minute pace.

      advanced travel hack series is on the cards!

  2. Hi Aaron,

    Thanks for the session, and it was timed perfectly!

    Can you please elaborate on the point you made about redeeming Points / Miles from across multiple Citi cards without paying multiple conversion fees?

    Thanks!

    1. glad you found it useful

      the way citibank structures its rewards program is that your points are not pooled together. so if i have a citibank rewards mastercard and a citibank prestige card (both of which earn citidollars), I will need to pay 2 conversion fees when i cash out my miles to krisflyer (some people say you can call in to get it waived, but YMMV and this is not the default option on the online redemption portal).

      contrast this to DBS where all your points are pooled into 1 balance. so if i have a dbs altitude, a dbs woman’s card and a dbs livefresh card (All of which earn dbs points), all the points earned will pool into 1 balance which i then cash out to krisflyer by paying 1 conversion fee.

      1. Thanks for the tip!

        I have a PremierMiles Card and a Rewards card and have traditionally hated paying the conversion fee twice. Will try calling next time and let you know my mileage 🙂

  3. I’m glad you did not kill the golden goose. There is an existing “underground” group that was worried you would kill it! Gone underground to avoid tnc from getting updated. If you know what I mean. Anyway if you are keen to join do let me know. By invitation only. 😄

    1. haha I think you overestimate how much I know. I’m probably a bad candidate for your group, thanks for asking though!
