I spent this past weekend in Chicago with a couple hundred other dedicated FlyerTalkers going over the ins and outs of collecting points, getting up-to-date on the latest news from the points world, and giving a presentation on everything you need to know about using your American Express Membership Rewards points (with a few helpful tips on Chase Ultimate Rewards as well, of course).
Before I started my full presentation, though, I was asked to give a little refresher talk on some key points terms for the audience, and I was given several that started with the letter “M,” kind of like a frequent flyer glossary. The terms I was asked to define were:
-MR: standing for both Membership Rewards (more later), and Marriott Rewards
So take a look at this quick video for a quick review of each of those terms, with a few laughs thrown in, and let me know what you think or if you have any questions.
Then check back later this week for a couple videos from my full presentation on American Express Membership Rewards, and the brief, informal Q&A session I conducted with the audience at the end. Enjoy!
