The miles and points “game” can sometimes feel very solitary.  Unless you meet someone in line trying to load a Redbird, or maybe in an airport lounge, your social interactions are often behind a computer screen, like on Twitter or Facebook.

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 the last 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 working “Kate”, 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.

So I thought I’d try a Cincinnati miles and points meetup

Cincinnati miles and points meetup dates

I am open to suggestions, but my first thought is Saturday, October 3rd, at lunch time.  From what I’ve heard from other miles and points meetup organizers, lunch time on a weekend tends to work out well.  If that date doesn’t work for you but you’re interested in attending, leave me a note in the comment with what dates and times would work for you.

I can’t promise we can accomodate everyone, but I DO promise that if this one is successful, it won’t be the last Cincinnati miles and points meetup that we hold!

Cincinnati miles and points meetup location

The first Cincinnati miles and points meetup is going to be in the Kenwood area (off of Exit 11/12 on Interstate 71).  We’ll firm up the exact location as we get closer to the date, but it will be somewhere near Kenwood Towne Centre.  If you’ve got suggestions, let me know in the comments!  Personally, I was kind of feeling like Dewey’s Pizza?

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 so you can register if you’re interested in attending!
