I've been getting a lot of requests lately to help plan mileage runs. To be honest, I'm simply not an expert at finding the best routing/deals on revenue flights. Even when I "mileage run" I usually stay a night or two and make a mini-vacation out of it and I travel enough regularly to only do it once or twice a year max.

I haven't used this service, but if you want expert help planning your mileage run, it may make sense to enlist the help of elitehelper.com. I hear good things about them and they can save you hundreds of dollars by maximizing your run. If you do enlist them, tell them I sent you and let me know how they did so I can update everyone in the future.

I am an expert at booking award tickets, so if you need help using your points or putting together a comprehensive points strategy, I'm your man.

Safe travels - only 10 more days of the elite qualifying year left!

How we chose these cards

Our points-obsessed staff uses a plethora of credit cards on a daily basis. If anyone on our team wouldn’t recommend it to a friend or a family member, we wouldn’t recommend it on The Points Guy either. Our opinions are our own, and have not been reviewed, approved, or endorsed by our advertising partners.
