See you next week for the Mileage Mentor MasterClass (Bengaluru)

As you know, Miles & Points are a passion I have pursued for over two decades now. Back in the day, way back, I was as clueless as everyone else about where to start. Over a period of time, I gathered my skillset from a combination of sources and learned from those before me. And now, that skillset helps me and my family travel by the droves while paying for it with miles rather than cash.

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 last year, and since then, we have been able to have more than a hundred people walk through the door and get better with their appreciation of points and miles.

For instance, last year, we did a 15-day vacation in July 2022, where we spent time in Europe across Switzerland and Austria for the summer vacation, and apart from a couple of nights paid in cash, the entire trip was with miles and points redemptions.

Travelling all over the globe in premium cabins, and paying next to nothing for it, has been easy for a while. For instance, just a few weeks ago, we got the Singapore Airlines First Class Suites for the price of a meal for two at The Bombay Canteen.

And now, it is time to pay it forward. It has been my goal to educate people as much as I can to use their miles and earn their miles wisely. Over the years, we’ve held Mileage Mentor MasterClasses in Mumbai, Delhi NCR, Bengaluru, Pune, Hyderabad and Chennai already. We’ve also offered online virtual classes for the past three years. And now, it is time to bring the physical format back. We already wrapped up one of the MasterClasses in Delhi and Mumbai each.

Now, we’ve firmed up another round of the Mileage Mentor MasterClass for Bengaluru. The MasterClass is intended to be a 5-hour long, 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.

In these 5-hour workshops for beginners and intermediate-level users, we will talk to you along 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 are going to 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.

The Event details are as follows:

  • Bengaluru: June 11, 2023 (10:00 AM)
    • The ticket, once bought, is non-refundable. You can, however, transfer your ticket to someone else.
    • Hot beverages, water and a working lunch are included in your ticket.
    • Internet Access will be provided.
    • In case the event is cancelled, the organiser’s liability is limited to a full refund of the fee paid.
    • If you require a Tax Invoice, please send us a mail at to receive the same.

The website for ticketing is already live here. The full price of the standard ticket is going to be INR 8,500 per attendee, inclusive of GST. But currently, we are offering a special price to celebrate the return of offline sessions. The discounted prices will be valid till the earmarked tickets last.

So, if you have been looking for the lowest price and missed the pre-booking pricing, you should book now. Here is the link for purchasing your tickets. Also, if you’d like to earn as a family, perhaps you should come in as a couple as well, given it helps if both the spouses know as much about miles and points and are equally on board.

Here is an exciting story from one of our readers, who managed to go from zero to 80,000 miles by using the knowledge from the forum.

You can book your tickets on LiveFromALounge.Plus.

We are looking forward to seeing you all there!
