Hey it’s Derek and AcCounting Your Points has officially launched! And by launched, I mean I went on this website, clicked a couple things and then BAM! I am a blogger… or travel blogger or travel writer or points and miles enthusiast or whatever you would like to call it.
The reason for starting this site is to help all of you, my family and friends, take advantage of travel deals and promotions in order to travel for significantly less money than you currently do. Sometimes this will mean taking advantage of some low airfare for travel from Tampa to Atlanta, and at the peak this will mean traveling for weeks in Europe, paying for nothing but the food you eat! And by nothing, I mean nothing – free airfare, free lodging, free excursions, free transportation – all done with frequent flyer miles, hotel points, and discounts/credits!
Not a frequent traveler with a large stash of points and miles? Not a problem! The great thing about points and miles is that they are so easy to earn. All that is required is for you to invest some time and some attention to the tips, tricks and advice that you will find on this site.
This is the first post and just the beginning, but I am excited to broadcast some of the points and miles techniques that that have allowed me to travel around the country and the world for pennies on the dollar the last couple of years! I am open to all topics and all questions that you may have so never shy away from commenting below or shooting me an email with any question or topic you want covered/answered (chances are there are many with the same thoughts).
Until next time…
