Hi All,

Does anyone know of any Frequent Flyer books available? I'm interested in ones from and Australian perspective if such a thing exists or doesnt it matter with these types of books?

I've looked at the one advertised in the last newsletter and was wondering if its an ebook that Frequent Flyer recommends or is it just advertised for the sake of advertising income??

The ebook advertised in the last newsletter was an advertisement only. The eBook was neither produced nor written by us, and is certainly not endorsed by us.

Based on some feedback we have received it does seem have a US focus.

Ok thanks I thought that may have been the case as you need to have forms of income.

So I guess you dont know of any others that maybe availble or worth while looking at?

Alien,
You probably read the guff our American friend wrote for free, but I have to agree with him that the best value you can get out of frequent flyer points is to use them for flying. Just divide them into the fare that you would have had to pay and then do the same thing with some of the offers like hotels and shopping vouchers, they do not come anywhere near using them for flying. The other old chessnut which is worth repeating is you can buy just about everything on a credit card nowadays and that's what you must do to get the maximum points flowing. Offer to pay other family member' bills on your card, as long as you get the cash.
My elderly neighbour just had her hot water service blow up so I paid for her new one on my card, she just wrote me a cheque instead of the plumber. Which just goes to show some neighbours will do anything to get me to fly to Japan!!
Good luck, make a game of it!!
