One of the most helpful guys out there when it comes to maximizing miles (both on the earning and burning side) is Rick of the Frugal Travel Guy blog. He has always been very helpful to me, and it’s thanks largely to him that I expanded my mileage horizons a couple years back. For a long time I would just focus on certain programs, but his lessons of diversifying have made me a mileage multi-millionaire.
Anyway, he wrote a book, “The Frugal Travel Guy Handbook,” which is available on Kindle for $6.99 or in paperback on Amazon for $8.97. This is definitely worth a read, especially if you’re just starting out with the hobby.
