I will be presenting once again at the Chicago Seminars.

This will be my third year co-hosting this event with my good friend Rick Ingersoll. known as The Frugal Travel GuyOver 500 frequent-flyer enthusiasts will be in attendance, engaging in several informative sessions for both beginner and advanced mileage junkies. At 4:15 p.m. on Saturday, I’ll personally be speaking on the subject of maximizing credit cards, then hosting a cocktail reception that same night. A full schedule of events is currently available on Flyertalk.

I have five tickets to give away to my readers! To enter, leave a comment on this post by 5:00 p.m. ET on Tuesday, October 7, telling me what you hope to learn from the Chicago Seminars, and Team TPG and I will pick a winner.
