Yesterday afternoon, I had a blast talking to a crowded room of miles and points enthusiasts at the New York Times Travel Show. You know I can (and often do) talk about points all day long, but I had to condense my speech into 45 minutes, so I boiled it down to the basics of earning and redeeming points, as well as the best credit cards out there for doing so.

For those of you that are more advanced, you'll find a lot of familiar information in here, but feel free to pass it along to your friends who are just getting started. You newbies should find some great information in here, which I'll also be posting in the Beginners Guide section.

My next big engagements will be at the The Freddie Awards on Thursday, April 26, 2012, at the Renaissance Newark Airport, and the following weekend at Frequent Traveler University, from Friday-Sunday, April 27-29, 2012, where there will be workshops on miles and points by the top experts and many chances to meet representatives from airline and hotel programs.

In the meantime, have a look at the presentation and stay tuned for future speaking engagements!

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.
