Section two is on tactics of earning frequent flyer miles. This section is very specific, with the list of rewards programmes available and the fastest way to gain frequent flyer miles. However, the rewards programmes mentioned are all US-based and some tactics on earning frequent flyer miles rely heavily on credit cards and stores that are unavailable outside the States.
Frequent Flyer Master’s third section is dedicated to cashing in your frequent flyer miles for flights! Chris Guillebeau walks through the best way to go about it, commenting on extra frequent flyer miles you can pick up and the best way to get through to customer service. There’s a “trouble-shooting” section and interesting rewards for frequent flyer miles are noted.
There are still 12 additional pages for more tips on making most out of the frequent flyer miles including miscellaneous tips, Q&A, and a list of additional resources to help you earn frequent flyer miles.
The site outlines the frequent flyer miles that Chris himself is earning each year giving you an idea on how much to expect, depending on how much time you invest in earning frequent flyer miles.
