Frequent Flyer Master???

I recently purchased the Unconventional Guide – Frequent Flyer Master and finally got a chance to read it. I had previously bought another guide from the Unconventional Guide about frequent flyer miles. The first guide, which I can’t remember the name of, was more basic then this one and cheaper. This one was more basic on the concept of frequent flyer miles, expanding much more on ways to earn miles using unconventional methods.

There was a lot of stuff that I already new, I’m not sure if it’s from the first ebook or if I had picked it up along the way – such as using one airlines program within a airline alliance to earn all your miles. But there were also a lot of tips I hadn’t heard or thought of, though aren’t necessarily secrets. Sorry, you’ll have to buy the book for those tips.

Is the book worth $49? I’m not sure yet, I apparently have some work to do. But the book comes with update emails, little tips and links to help, if these emails keep up the book could certainly pay off quickly!

My first goal for earning miles is with Continental since I already have quite a few miles from my trip to Hawaii, certainly enough to be a reasonable start.

  1. First of all, I hope you bought that book with a miles credit card! That would give you 100 miles right there. I’m not sure what could be in that book that hasn’t been said on FlyerTalk or RewardFreak. For anyone just getting into the miles/points game, I would start there.

  2. Just as a follow up… I have been on flyertalk and found some useful information there. However, I think it would take A LOT longer to get the same info out of flyertalk then in the ebook. Lets say it took me an hour to read the book, I’ve probably spent twice that looking around on flyertalk and I’m still trying to figure out how to navigate the boards just to find information. Also, with flyertalk I find that so many people are pretty advanced at earning miles that the site isn’t well suited for someone beginning to earn miles without understanding the way miles programs work and the different ways to earn miles.

    In terms of is it worth $49…
    If you’re a time is worth money person then I think you’re more likely to find a value in the ebook.
    If you’ve been thinking about a strategic way to earn miles and/or need a jump start, then there is a value to this.
    If you already have a good base of knowledge of miles programs then it’s probably not worth the money.
