Merry Christmas: Gift someone the gift of Miles & Points for their future travels!

For the longest time, I’ve been advocating for using miles and points for better travel, and the Mileage Mentor MasterClass is an attempt in that direction. The Mileage Mentor MasterClass we launched in 2018 has been a continuous attempt to build more awareness and get people started with their miles and points journey from our end.

The Mileage Mentor MasterClass is your ticket to travelling with your points, miles and credit card points for next to nothing. The first of these was organised in 2018, and since then, we have been able to have over 300 hundred people walk through the door and get better with their appreciation of points and miles.

For instance, we did a 15-day vacation in December 2018, where we spent time in Europe chasing Christmas Markets, and we flew Business Class on the way out & First Class on the way back to Mumbai. We paid only for two hotel nights, and everything else came with points. It has been a different adventure every year, powered with miles and points.

And now, it is time to pay it forward. My goal is to educate people as much as I can to use their miles and earn their miles wisely. Last year, we already held Mileage Mentor MasterClasses at Mumbai, Delhi NCR, Bengaluru, Pune, and Chennai.

Given the pandemic, we moved the Mileage Mentor MasterClass to an online mode, and we already had 100s of participants go through the online format.

The Miles and Points world has been changing rapidly over the past months. And so has been the situation on the ground.

While I love the offline format, the intention with the online form was to bring in the fold those participants who wouldn’t want to travel to one of our principal cities to attend a workshop. And sure enough, we had participants from Nagpur, Jaipur, Aurangabad, Varanasi, Kolkata, Howrah, Mumbai, Bengaluru, Bhubaneshwar Guwahati, Jodhpur, amongst other cities around the country. The people from the metropolises continue to join in as well.

We have planned a MasterClass for August 2021 now. The MasterClass is intended to be a 5-hour interactive workshop where we start with the basics and then move on to more advanced subjects, which should eventually leave you with a strategy on how to earn and burn loyalty points towards travel. The online workshop is split into two sessions, allowing you for a lunch break along the way.

In these 5 hour workshops, for the beginners and the intermediate level users, we will talk to you on the following lines:

  • Miles & Points Concepts
  • Airlines: How to Earn those Miles and How to Burn those Miles to get on the pointy edge of the plane
  • Hotels: Why being loyal helps you, and how to maximise your hotel loyalty benefits
  • Credit Cards: Learn how to generate miles and points on your everyday purchases and what works best for your spending.

We will talk about the Indian perspective and how you can get the best seats in the house from India. After the workshops, we will leave the floor open to help answer your questions.

And you can gift this session to someone, at an exceptional price, for the workshop to be conducted in January 2022 or anytime up to June 2022. This limited-time gifting opportunity for a discount is only available till December 26, 2021, 2359 hours. You can either gift one by one to everyone, or you can buy more than one ticket, and we will do the emailing out for you.

The redemption of the voucher can be done anytime till June 2022. We usually organise a session once a month, sometimes, even more, depending on the number of people. So, your gifted can pick a session anytime till June 2022 to use their voucher.

    • A ticket once bought is non-refundable. You can, however, transfer your ticket to someone else.
