Other books in the Lazy Travelers Handbook Series
Flyertalk—Flyertalk is the premier resource and the mother-load of all useful information on the topic, but the forum is huge, slightly-to-moderately disorganized, and it has a reasonably long learning curve. Newbies should learn as much as they can before asking questions. Start today!
Milepoint—Milepoint is a relatively new forum created at its core by the same people who had brought you Flyertalk. It is a little friendlier to new users, but this doesn’t mean you shouldn’t do your homework before asking questions.
My Favorite Blogs:
Loyalty Traveler—great blog dedicated to hotel programs exclusively
Milevalue—now that you have the miles, learn to use them wisely
Frequent Miler—I don’t use his ideas, but I absolutely love them!
The Man of a Thousand Places—the one with a 13-card app-o-Rama.
The Wandering Aramean—I love this one especially for trip reports, great apps and beautiful photos
Milez.biz—to find a FF program (s) to take you where you’re going.
