I’m rebooting the Free First Class Next Month series. It will basically be the same content as before, but the posts will be enhanced, updated, and reordered to improve them. See directly below this post for post #1.

My dad uncovered my first loyalty card ever. I would guess this is from about 1993, but I’m not sure.

Even as a little kid, I was earning miles.

Type in your name and email address here for a 20% off code for you (and a companion if you like) on a Virgin America flight. You must fly between August 28 and November 14.

Frequent Miler has info on how to exploit 40x SkyMiles on purchases at PetCareRX. It’s like getting 50% off their perhaps inflated prices, or you can do things the Frequent Miler way and buy and resell items to buy points cheaply.

View from the Wing says you can get 3,000 American Airlines miles on a one day Avis rental now through 8/31. Since 3,000 AA miles are worth over $50, this is an incredible deal.

The Points Guy says you can earn 2,500 Membership Rewards for watching a Bose TV demo. If you’re near a store, why not pop in and earn about $40 worth of miles for 15 minutes of your time.

The cheapest way to fly: an 11 year old boy snuck through an airport and onto a plane to Italy without a passport or ticket.

      • one more note on the Bose deal. I sent my wife to the Bose store while she was out shopping. they had never head of it but did give their corporate marketing guy a call to find out how we can get it. He told my wife that it was only for NY residents. He is asking to see if there is any way the we can get the promo and will let me know, but I am not holding my breath.
