As mentioned last week, I am currently working with Rick, The Frugal Travel Guy, to organize this year’s frequent flyer Seminars, which will take place in Chicago from October 12-14. You can now book rooms at the host hotel, the Holiday Inn Elk Grove Village. Registration for the actual seminar isn’t yet open because we are working out some final details, but that should be available soon and last year registration was open pretty much until a week to the event, so if you want to attend it shouldn’t be an issue.

There will be a ton of other speakers, like Gary, Ben and Mommy Points. I’m not 100% sure what my talk will be, but we’ve got more than enough time to figure that out!
