Hello! I'm The Points GuruWorld Traveller, Writer & Points Guru
After numerous flights sitting in economy, watching others enjoying the space and luxuries Business Class and First Class have to offer, I started researching. To start with looking in to ways and opportunities of trying to gain free upgrades (you can increase your potential, but really these like lottery wins and have zero guarantees) but quickly stumbled in to a group of high flyers enjoying all the perks on offer.
Some were a result of regular business trips in the front of the plane. Having enough points and airmiles they couldn’t spend them all. One lady I worked with in a previous role amassed so many points she flew both her parents First Class from Sydney to London. She had enough miles for her own holiday and was being rewarded with miles in abundance.
There were though a second group. These people had found it possible to fly better cabin classes not through regular flying, but by working out how to earn miles and points doing nothing more than they were not – they were just being very smart with it. To begin with they were reluctant to share, convinced this pool of points would disappear if too many people found out – but after researching this in depth I found out the airlines and hotel companies earn very well out of this. Its not costing the airlines and hotel chains, it’s making them more money.
Having known so many people who’s dream it is to experience the Business Class and First Class world, even just once, gave me the idea behind The Points Guru.
Bringing the knowledge, experience and hours and hours of research I had poured in to the vast world of point boosting to other like-minded individuals keen to experience these worlds for themselves.
Experiencing comfortable lay flat beds and enjoying the special touches available in airport lounges (those lounges in Heathrow, JFK New York and Mumbai airports particularly nice) is something we should all experience.
My aim is to help as many people as I can experience this and realise it isn’t impossible to fly Business or First Class – and you don’t need a lottery win to do so. You just need information, follow the best promotions and earn earn earn until you’re taking a selfie on a lay flat bed, sipping champagne at 36,000 – ready to send to your envious friends on the ground.
