#FTR: May 7-13 in The Milelion’s Telegram and Facebook Groups

Catch up on what's happening across The Milelion's social channels.

Welcome to For The Record, or #ftr, a place to catch up all that’s been shared across The Milelion’s Telegram and Facebook Groups where people talk about miles and points, 24/7. Here’s my attempt to summarize the things I found interesting in the past week. 

There’s so much chatter going on that this list will be far from comprehensive, so if you want all the details be sure to join the Telegram and Facebook groups. If you have something important to share, be sure to label it with #ftr in the Telegram or Facebook groups. Thank you to everyone for contributing to the community!

Is the content of Telegram and Facebook groups identical? How much trash – I mean – useless information is there?

There’s no free lunch! If you want the latest updates and tips asap, you have to spend time trawling forums like this. The other option is to wait for some of the tips to become public, which obviously wont be guaranteed.

Subject: 8mpg with citi
Card: Citi Rewards Mastercard
Platform: Apple Pay (paywave terminal)
Details: YYY (name outlet/business/etc) awards/does not award point for NNN transaction.

Awesome summary! Thanks very much!!


Very useful! Sometimes it’s 800+ msges when I reopen Telegram – it’s hard to read through all. Thanks


800? Seems people have a LOT of free time on their hands…


who are they?


Can we confirm that the Citibank rewards – Cardup trick is dead?


Ok, i confirm that it’s dead. Do anyone know what cards/method I can use to pay my MCST quarterly bill to maximise mile earn rate?
