Earn more points ↦Loyalty programs are becoming more complex, while also making it harder to redeem rewards and cutting back on earning rates. Everyone knows the basics: you can earn points from credit cards and flying, but following the basic system will mean you can expect to wait a long time to earn enough points for rewards that are worthwhile. However, there is no reason to settle just for basic earning rates on flights, hotels, cars or shopping. More importantly, you can increase your earnings by double-dipping many loyalty programs and pile on frequent flyer points, earn rewards earlier, or gain cash returns. At FrequentPoints we will show you the different ways to increase your haul of benefits, without you having to pay more.
