This is a blog dedicated to getting and using rewards points – from airlines to hotels to department stores – as effectively as possible. Topics range from manufactured spending (MS) to credit card offers to reward flight availability. Because this is a blog about points, a lot of posts contain a focus on numbers and calculations. This also means that there’s a bit of an expectation of prior background knowledge. However, we’ll try to make the information as approachable and understandable as possible.
