The host hotel room block sold out fast, we are working with them to expand the block at the $89/night rate, if/when it is working again it will be at this link with deadline to book by 1/24.

FTU bills itself as a way to learn the insider tips, tricks and secrets to using frequent flyer miles, hotel points and credit card rewards in a small group environment. FTU Signature combines high-quality topics and indispensable social networking with like-minded travelers to create an unforgettable attendee experience

FTU Signature Seattle 2018

FTU Signature is what I think of as more of the “traditional” FTU – this is the whole weekend and your ticket includes

  • Coffee and tea on Saturday and Sunday morning until 10:30am
  • Plated lunch on Saturday and Sunday

The Saturday keynote is David Rowell of The Travel Insider on The Future of Travel. On the Saturday morning we are running a beginners boot camp to welcome new miles and points travelers and first-time FTU attendees:

  • Stefan on The 5 Key Concepts of Incredible Miles and Points Travel
  • Tiffany on Beginner’s Award Travel
  • Ariana on Beginner’s Manufactured Spend

Tickets are $249 though I have codes for $20 off (making your total price $229 – see below).  I have been told that the $30 off that FTU offered on Black Friday / Cyber Monday will NOT return

I’ve had fun at conferences like this.  For many of us, we are the only “miles and points” people in our area, so it can be fun to spend time with other people who “get it”.  If you’re starting out, you will probably get tips from the different sessions, but you’re likely to get even MORE value from networking with people before, during and after the sessions. People are more likely to share tips at sessions like this vs. putting them out there on a blog / the Internet

Even people who have been in the miles and points world for awhile are likely to get at least one actionable item in addition to the networking tips
