Want to hear me ramble??

If you’re here reading this post then it seems you might already be vaguely interested in the stories I tell and the insight I have into the various loyalty schemes out there. So, any interest in hearing some of that information live and in-person? If you’re free on the weekend of September 27-29th and can get yourself to Tampa, Florida then we can make it happen.

Frequent Traveler University is back for its 5th (I think) installment and the schedule has been posted with topics and speakers. I’ll be joining a host of other presenters to talk about how to travel more, travel better and travel for less, mostly through the use of points but also just by being a bit smarter about planning and thinking about the trips you want to take and how to get there.

The agenda has 23 different break-out sessions currently assigned, plus a couple keynote-type events. I’ll be presenting on three topics during the weekend:

  • Inside the Program: United MileagePlus
  • A Waste of Money? the Case Against Hotel Chains & Loyalty
  • Free Online Tools to Make Travel Easier

That middle one is definitely a session I expect to get some push-back on; I know how much people enjoy their suite upgrades and “free” breakfast or internet. I’m ready to tell you why those are a sucker play, and I’ve got numbers to back up my position.

There are still a few tickets available for the event. You can register here.

  1. Seth, have you considered making your second point a debate or roundtable? It would be very entertaining to hear a point/ counterpoint approach. Perhaps will Ric Garrido, myself, or one of the other BA bloggers?
