It’s one of our most frequently asked questions. How many points and miles has Brian Kelly, The Points Guy himself, accrued over the nine years since founding TPG? “It’s kind of a personal question,” Brian says. But hey, we get it. We are a site based on the idea that you can and should maximize your points earnings, so you can go on amazing trips for free. So, here’s something we have never shared before — until now.

To ring in the beginning of his new vlog channel and series, “Being The Points Guy,” Brian is divulging one of his best-kept secrets: how many credit-card points he has in his accounts at the moment. This is just the first episode of many going live every Tuesday and Thursday. Catch up with Brian next time as he embarks for Medellin, Colombia, on an American Airlines Boeing 767 in a lie-flat seat.

Oh, and, you can find out how many points and miles TPG has in the video below:

 

Was it as much as you thought? More? Less? Well, this is just the first episode in a new, ongoing series featuring Brian on his travels using points and miles. Check out the official Brian Kelly YouTube channel, here — and don’t forget to subscribe below!
