This is your friendly reminder that the 3rd Cincinnati Miles and Points meetup is THIS Saturday (details below).  We currently have 16 people signed up to attend with an additional 7 maybes.  If you can, bring a snack or drink to share (no alcohol please), we’ll have a bit of a potluck and talk miles and points.

I’ve had a lot of fun when I’ve attended conferences such as the Family Travel for Real Life.  Here’s a shot of an “after party” after one of the Family Travel for Real Life conference

Of course, I’m the guy in the back in the white shirt, obliviously checking my phone, so obviously I’m a real social butterfly! 😀

One of the rules of manufactured spending is that “all manufactured spending is local”, meaning what works in one location might not work in another.  Specifically here in Cincinnati, we have a couple of working “Kates”, many grocery stores that will let you buy Visa gift cards with a credit card and sell you money orders with multiple debit cards.  Those strategies may not work in other cities.

We had a lot of fun at our first Cincinnati miles and points meetup, so now that we’re past the busy holiday season, it’s time to try another one!  There have been lots of changes since October, with the death of all the birds, changes to award charts, and more.

Here’s a shot from the inaugural Cincinnati miles and points meetup, which we had back in October at Dewey’s Pizza

Obviously I’m quite the “photog” capturing the server blurrily moving through my picture… 🙂  I wasn’t quite sure how many people to expect, but we had I think 14 people there, with a wide variety of skill and interest levels.

Cincinnati miles and points meetup date

After we almost got kicked out of the Reading library :-), we’ll try the Oakley library this time.  It’s bigger and also further removed from the main library so we can be as loud and crazy as we want!! 🙂

So, if you’re from Cincinnati (or Northern Kentucky, Southeastern Indiana, Dayton, Columbus or anywhere else nearby) and have a hankering to talk about any aspect of miles and points, leave a note in the comments.  You can also email me at dan at pointswithacrew dot com if you want to get put on my “list” of local folks who are interested in these meetups.

I’ve set up an Evite at http://evite.me/TWpQrbkGjs so you can register if you’re interested in attending!
