Course Description

This course explains how to fly in Business and First Class for just a fraction of the price! The trick is to buy frequent flyer points, then to find the "sweet spots" to redeem the points for maximum value.

Course 4, "Buy Points", will show you how to do this with 7 overseas frequent flyer programs. You'll learn how to buy points, how to redeem the points and where the value lies.

Buying points can make sense where the cost of the points is lower than the value of the reward for which they are redeemed. For example, you could buy $500 worth of points and redeem them for a Business Class flight worth over $2,000!

If you happen to have a very high credit card spend, you may have more points than you know what to do with. For everyone else, buying points is a cost-effective way to boost your frequent flyer point balance.
