MtM Podcast – Different Perspective on Miles & Points
On this episode Shawn is joined by MtM Senior Contributor and miles & points expert Benjy Harmon. Benjy is known for looking at “the hobby” in a different way and urges others to do the same.
Topics discussed in this episode include: the importance of goals in the hobby, how to keep the miles & points game fun, changing our perspectives on things over time, lifestyle creep with miles & points and why cashing in points is something you might want to seriously consider even if it isn’t the popular thing to do.
