Welcome to Course 4: Buy Points
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.
This course will show you how to do this with 8 overseas frequent flyer programs as well as Marriott Bonvoy. 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 or fly a lot for work, you may already have more points than you know what to do with. But for everyone else, buying points can be a cost-effective way to boost your frequent flyer point balance and save significant amounts on premium cabin travel!
