One of the easiest ways to routinely travel at a bargain is by racking up and using points and miles from airlines, hotels, and credit cards.

Did you know that after getting two credit cards you can snag a buy one, get one free deal on a particular airline and use that deal over and over for a year?

Did you know that there’s a hotel chain that gives you a free night every year and always lets your kids eat free?

And if you’re already something of a points and miles aficionado, do you know the best way to maximize the points and miles you already have?

If the answers to these and other miles and points questions intrigue you, remember the hashtag #TDADPoints and plan on tracking it on August 1, when a panel of miles and points experts will give you the lowdown on how to get free flights and hotel nights for your family.

We’ll start with tips on how to quickly earn enough points and miles for free family trips and work our way to the best airlines and hotel chains for free family award travel. And of course, we welcome your favorite points and miles tips, too.

If you think luxury travel will always be out of your reach, come hear from the panelists how they’ve flown international first class and stayed in 5-star hotel suites with their families — all for pennies on the dollar– thanks to their miles and points.

Join us and hear from some of the best minds in the loyalty program business.
