TORONTO, Dec. 23 /CNW/ - In the new Golden Globe-nominated flick, Up in the Air, George Clooney plays Ryan Bingham, a frequent flier and mileage-obsessed "career transition counselor." His days consist of traveling around the country firing people and collecting miles with a goal of logging 10 million American Airlines AAdvantage miles. Mileage collectors like Bingham can use the services at Points.com (www.points.com) to achieve that goal of more miles even faster.
Points.com (TSX: PTS; OTCBB: PTSEF) is the world's leading loyalty reward solutions provider that offers several easy and economical ways to maximize rewards. The site's Global Points Exchange (GPX; www.points.com/gpx) service can also help users trade their miles directly with other users in order to accumulate what's needed to achieve their goal.
Some of the ways Points.com can help mile-hungry travelers earn more include:
- Exchange miles with fellow frequent travelers. Points.com's GPX
service connects users seeking complementary trades-making both sides
"winners." Not only can users earn more by trading miles from
carriers such as American Airlines, Delta Airlines, Continental
Airlines and Alaska Airlines, but they can also trade
InterContinental Hotel Group's Priority Club Rewards program points
to get to a free stay anywhere in the world that much faster.
- Track miles from multiple programs in one spot. As the only site
that's officially partnered with the world's leading mileage
programs, Points.com's Balance Tracker lets you monitor all your
account balances at the same time. The more balances you track, the
more offers and benefits you'll see. It's like an online wallet for
- There's no such thing as having too many miles. If you're still
hungry for more, always check to see if your preferred program(s) is
offering specials or limited time offers that will make earning even
more miles faster and easier.
If you enjoyed the movie and want to be even more like Bingham, why not cash in just enough miles for an Amazon Gift Card, and redeem it for a copy of the book? It's the holidays after all, so treat yourself to a present you're sure to enjoy.
