In my Travel Hacking Cartel Review, I mentioned the book, Frequent Flyer Master
(affiliate link) by Chris Guillebeau. I’ve gotten a few emails asking about my thoughts on it, so I decided to lay it all out right here. Like I mentioned in my other review about the
Travel Hacking Cartel, Frequent Flyer Master (affiliate link) is NOT for everyone.
How I Discovered It
Ever since committing to my lifelong spending mantra, “Any idiot can pay full price,” I’ve been on a never-ending quest to find deals, hacks, and ethical strategies to get the most for my money. One of my largest expenses is travel and I know many people who travel for close to nothing. The people who travel for close to nothing have learned to take advantage of frequent flyer miles. As I dug further, I learned that frequent flyers are like this secret society that is hidden from the public.
Eventually, I purchased Frequent Flyer Master (affiliate link). Here are some of the pros and cons.
- It’s written in simple, easy-to-understand language.
- It’s written by Chris Guillebeau. Chris is the author of the bestselling book, The Art of Non-Conformity. He’s got an incredible reputation for being honest and socially responsible.
- It shows you how you don’t need to fly very much to get miles.
- It also shows you how gain miles from everyday purchases without credit cards.
- For those of you who use credit cards (I don’t), it gives you specific strategies to make the most of available credit card deals.
- What you get out of it is worth so much more than the price of the book.
- I’ve read online that everything in the book is free online in other places. To an extent, I agree, yet I also believe that this book puts it all in one place.
- If you’re not organized, you won’t get most out of the book. There is a lot of information to digest.
- Some of the information is old. If airlines change their offers a few times a year, there is no way for a book to keep up with that. Fortunately, Chris will email you as deals and programs change.
If you are looking to save on air travel over the long-term, this is a worthwhile investment.
