Creative Ways to Earn Airline Miles

Creative ways to earn airline miles

Creative ways to earn airline miles

Go beyond rewards programs and credit cards to find creative ways to earn airline miles.

Airline miles (or frequent flyer points or airline rewards) are credits you accumulate that can be used toward future travel. If you travel a lot—or wish you did—then you should earn airlines miles every which way. It’s easy enough to sign up for an individual airline’s loyalty program. And not that much more difficult to become an airline alliance member. Then there are travel credit cards where you earn points based on your spending. Once you’ve got those things figured out, it’s time to level up! Here are some creative ways you can earn airline miles to use for your next timeshare week or dream vacation.

Eat Out

Many airlines have dining programs that allow you to earn airline miles when you eat out at participating bars and restaurant. With rewards of up to five miles per dollar spent, you could eat your way to Cancun. Skymiles Dining with Delta or MileagePlus Dining with United are two examples. Look for the dining program for the airline you fly the most.

Go further and pay for meals out with credit cards that offer additional miles for restaurant purchases. For example, Chase Sapphire Plus offers double points for restaurant purchases.

Pay Your Bills

You have to do it anyway, so why not earn points, too? If you have a travel credit card, you can optimize its value by using it to pay your regular bills. Think about all the bills you can pay by card. Then set them up to automatically debit from your travel credit card. We also suggest setting up payments from your bank account to the card to keep your credit usage low and your credit score in tip-top shape.

Some utility programs allow you to earn miles and other benefits directly, but these typically have a lot of fine print. Low introductory rates and high rewards lure you in. And you will see rewards. However, over time, like timeshare maintenance fees, you’ll see increases that may outweigh the benefits you receive. We say “buyer beware” on those.

Go on a Trip

One of the great things about airline miles is that the best way to earn them is through traveling. So, dust off your shoes and head out for an adventure. Since some travel earns more points than others, it makes sense to check around for the most rewarding trips. Plus miles from travel typically have the fewest limitations and the most generous expiration dates.

Be Organized

All the points in the world won’t help you if you don’t keep track of them. Frequent travelers typically use a variety of programs. This is great but they can get lost in the shuffle. And many points have expiration dates. If you forget about them, they are gone forever.

So, make sure to monitor where you’re storing points and how much you have. You could make your own spreadsheet if you’re into that sort of thing. Or you could save time and use available online tools to help you. Award Wallet helps users track their points for all the programs in one spot. They’ll even send you notifications when points and rewards are expiring. Keep those points working for you!

Frequently Asked Questions ?

How does PMG get me out of my timeshare contract?

PMG is not a resale, transfer, or donation company. We are consumer advocates—we help to negotiate the release of your timeshare contract obligation. We do not buy, sell, or rent your timeshare. Simply put, we help you to get out of your timeshare contract forever.

How long does the process usually take?

Usually less than 12 months, but it all depends on your situation. If your timeshare is free and clear with no mortgage, then the process may only take 3-9 months.

Speak to your advisor about the time, and what delays the resorts have put into place to prevent timeshare owners from departing their ownership. If you have a mortgage or past due maintenance fee, the process takes more time.

How much is my timeshare worth?

This is probably going to hurt, but whether you paid $5,000 or $50,000 for your timeshare, the IRS values all timeshares as worthless investments. In addition, that timeshare would have negative value due to the annual maintenance fee bill which compounds year after year. That is until PMG helps you cancel your timeshare.

Can I use your service if I still have a balance owed on my mortgage?

Yes. Whether you bought your timeshare 20 days ago or 20 years ago, PMG has a solution for you and is here to help.

Will my name be off the timeshare?

Yes! Permanently! GUARANTEED!

In addition to getting me out of my timeshare, can you recover the money I’ve already spent on mortgage payments and maintenance fees?

While we are able to recover money in rare cases, beware of any timeshare cancellation company that entices you with the promise of fund recovery. The truth is, timeshares are loath to give back the money they’ve already taken.

Are your consumer advocates really “consumer advocates”, or is that just a fancy word for salesperson?

Because most of our clients have had their trust betrayed by timeshare salespeople, we understand how some consumers can become a bit jaded. When you call us for a consultation, that’s exactly what you get, a consultation. At PMG, our job is not to sell you; our job is to help you get out of your timeshare. Which is why we have numerous 5-star reviews and an “A” (excellent) rating from the BCA.

Why should I choose PMG to get me out of my timeshare?

We pride ourselves on providing our customers with the best customer service in the industry. When you contact our company, you speak to a live person, not an automated system or voicemail. We go above and beyond for our customers by helping you to protect your credit and even repair your credit if needed. We offer a 100% money back guarantee, and we can provide documented proof of our success in helping customers just like you.

What happens after I sign up with you? Will I be apprised of your progress?

At PMG, we pride ourselves on our hands-on, boutique-style customer service, so every new client is assigned a case manager whose job is to keep you in the loop throughout the entire cancellation process. Your case manager is always just a phone call away.

How much is your fee?

Not all timeshare experiences are created equal. Some are more complicated than others, and every situation is different. That’s why our trained timeshare elimination consultants will ask you a series of questions designed to determine exactly what needs to be done to terminate your timeshare, how long it will take, and how they can best advocate for you. We will always seek the most cost-effective route for you.

What if I still have more questions?

Canceling a timeshare contract is not a cookie cutter process. With each situation being unique, once you complete the form below an experienced consumer advocate will call you today to discuss your options.
