Boost Your Opening Points
Best Opening Offers
As you have learned Loyalty points schemes are incorporated into pricing policies. So if you are flying with a major airline or staying with a major hotel chain sign-up to their loyalty programmes so that you can collect the points that you are paying for!
In order to maximise the points of your favoured loyalty programme you can also earn points as part of your everyday spending by signing up for an appropriate credit card and earning that additional points (that you can covert to flights or hotel stays!) in order to reach your goal easily.
In order to further boost your points is to take advantage of opening offers that credit cards and sometimes loyalty programmes have. For example with the American Express Charge cards you can transfer points to 12 major Airline & Hotel programmes, sometimes at greater than a 1:1 conversion rate!
