Mileage Mentor MasterClass: Last Day to get Early Bird Discounts

Last week, we put out seats on sale for the first ever Mileage Mentor MasterClass. I am planning to hold these workshops along with the crew across major Indian cities, starting with Mumbai, Delhi & Bangalore to talk about how to earn and redeem miles and points in India in the best way.

Etihad First Apartments

Imagine flying Singapore Airlines’ First Class all the way from Mumbai to Los Angeles along with a meal in the Private Room, or Etihad Airways fabulous Etihad Apartments from New York to Sydney. We’ve travelled the length and the breadth of the world for next to free, including evergreen hotspots such as London and remote islands such as Bora Bora using imaginative redemptions. Consequence, we paid next to nothing for sitting up front and going places. Checkout our list of dreamy redemptions last year.

Like I mentioned earlier, the Mileage Mentor MasterClass will help you appreciate you the best way to maximize your frequent flyer miles, hotel points and credit card rewards, while learning about new places to go, tools to use, and loyalty program intricacies to help make your travels cheaper, more comfortable and in more luxury. I’m literally putting my 15 years of learnings in the space in a capsule course to get you on your way to the pointy edge of the plane, and the best suite in the house.

In these 3-hour workshops, targetted 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 spends.

Needless to say, 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, and then follow it up with a 1-1 consultation up to 15 minutes for those who want to knock off their ideas with us. Each workshop would be limited to 15 participants.

The usual price for the workshop is INR 5000 + 18% GST per head. However, we announced an early bird discount of 20% for those who booked by August 15, 2018 (today).

We got a tremendous response to the announcements. The Mumbai workshop sold out already. The Bangalore one is already more than half full. We got quite some emails asking us to see if we could accommodate them on the Mumbai workshops.

While I can’t physically add more space to a venue, and I’m trying my best to keep these workshops small in size so that we can have interaction, I’ve come up with another solution. I’ve cleared my agenda for another weekend, and now we can have another workshop in Mumbai. We already offered some seats to those on the waitlist for the first one, and now we have opened it up for those who’d like to still book up. And to play fair, we are still offering the Early Bird Price, but only if you book up today!

So, as a reminder, today is the last day to book up on the discounted price, and these go up tomorrow morning first thing. We’ve also added the ability to pay with your American Express Cards now.  Follow the links below to the respective workshops.
