Results of 2016 Reader Survey

Miles and Points, Travel Tips & Reviews and Trip Reports

You want to learn about miles and points.

Posts on miles and points takes the lead

The top three reasons and types of posts you read: miles and points, travel tips, and reviews and trip reports. Which is a slight change from last year’s survey results where travel deals and travel tips were the most important.

Blog Changes

Based on what you said, here are three things you can look forward to:

1.  More Posts

You’ll see more posts on using miles and points, travel tips, and reviews and trip reports.  I’ll add them slowly as I’ve done this year so that you are bombarded with multiple blogs posts a day.

2.  Manufactured Spending

Half of you said you could learn a few manufactured spending tricks and tips. I’m still struggling with exactly how much to reveal on the blog.

Back when I started playing the miles and points game in 1994, ms was like Fight Club. You didn’t talk about it.

I’m comfortable sharing what I know in small group settings at meet ups, seminars, etc.

3.  And Other Stuff

 I will finish the trip reports on Belize, Sydney, and the Park Hyatt Mallorca by the end of September. The rest of the trip reports will probably be finished by the end of the year…
Thanks again to everyone who completed, retweeted, and pinned the reader survey.  I totally appreciate your time.
