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 http://evite.me/ha2vqmdwmp so you can register if you’re interested in attending!

Live in NKY. Would LOVE to meet-up, but the 3th is my son’s birthday and the 4th is our anniversary. I can do the weekend before or the weekend after though!
Chris – I’ll add you to the list but I’m not sure we’ll change the date. But your son will have LOTS more birthdays, right? 🙂 Just schedule his party for the afternoon 🙂
Hey there – I’m in Akron, about 3 hours north of Cinci. I would definitely be interested in attending this, but am wondering if you would be coming up to the Cleveland area in the future? If you do this, I wouldn’t bother coming to Cinci.
I would love to come but I am leaving for Romania that day! If you do it again or change dates, I will be there!
Romania is the best! What are you doing there in October? I’ll be there in December/January for New Year. I’ve been there like 4 or 5 times now. Love it. 🙂
I have a paranormal group here in Cincinnati called Gatekeeper Paranormal. We are going to check out some castles and the Hoia Baciu forest! And of course we will be looking for vampires and werewolves while we are there. 😉
Would love to attend as well! I will be out of the country that weekend. Will definitely try to make the next one!
If you want, you can RSVP on the evite so you’ll know if dates change
I’m in. Pretty much any weekend works for me. Whatever works best for the group.
How about having a live webcast for the locals like me who can’t be there?
Please add me to the meetup list
You got it! I see you signed up for the evite as well – hope to see you there!
