Like you know, Miles & Points are a passion I have pursued over a decade now. Back in the day, like 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 learning 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 December, 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.
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. This year, we held Mileage Mentor MasterClasses at Mumbai, Delhi NCR, Bengaluru and Chennai already. It was yet again, an instant hit. But we keep scoping out newer cities via social media where to take the workshop.
Last week, we announced the first Mileage Mentor MasterClass for Pune. This will be the only time this year we will be organising the MasterClass in Pune, and perhaps the last MasterClass for the year altogether, looking at my schedule. The MasterClass is intended to be a 4-5 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 4-5 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 spends.
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.
Given the moves in the Indian loyalty scenario, with the unwinding of Jet Airways and newer developments such as Citibank’s latest move on credit cards, we continue to upgrade our content to this effect.
The Event details are as follows:
- Pune: October 12, 2019 (10:00 AM) at WeWork Futura, Pune
- 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 firstname.lastname@example.org to receive the same.
For those who pre-booked, they have already been sent a special link to complete their payments and book their seats. Please check your emails. These people got a very sweet deal for stepping forward when the session was still a thought.
This time, we are working slightly differently in terms of ticketing. The website for ticketing is already live, here. The full price of the ticket is going to be INR 8,200 per attendee, inclusive of GST. But currently, we are offering a special price to celebrate the festivities.
- INR 7,999 Regular Price
(Update: Most seats are gone, just 4 remain!)
So, if you have been looking for the lowest price, you should book now, because, at the end of the month, the prices will go up. 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.
A part of the session is already sold thanks to the pre-bookings. Here is a very interesting 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.
Looking forward to seeing you all there!
