Time for more Bored Money… Although frequent flyer miles are getting watered down by the second, they are still worth something if you fly as much as me. And if they are free, why not get them? Whenever I have some free time I stop over to Gary Steiger’s excellent website FreeFrequentFlyerMiles.com. He sifts through all the current miles deals and filters it down to a easily manageable level. It’ll take a while to get caught up with all the goodies there, but after that I just always check the ‘What’s New?’ section.

There are always airlines giving out miles here and there for surveys, switching long-distance carriers, signing up for e-mail newsletters, and so on. It all adds up! Together with this site and my Starwood AmEx Card earning 1.25 miles per dollar spent on it, last time we flew to visit the parents it was with 50,000 miles for two free cross-country flights, saving us over $1,000.

  1. Thanks for pointing out Gary’s website. It is a nifty website to accumulate miles. However, with the recent trend to waterdown and expire miles, I found myself in a pinch a while back when my miles were about to expire and I wanted to retain at least some of its value. I blogged about my strategy in liquidating those miles before they expired –
