Travel using points, free certificates, and earned nights is always a tricky topic to discuss in terms of if the travel is truly “free”. The people over at Frequent Miler have a great video from their point of view. What I really like about this video is they don’t fully agree with each other so its great to see different points of view, and ways of looking at different scenarios.
Starting at 26.20 the video breaks down the topic into several parts.
From Frequent Miler: Are miles and points free? Do we use them for “free travel”? Does how we earned the miles make the travel more or less free? This week, we talk about costs and trade-offs of “free” travel.
