How to make the most of your frequent flyer points

If you never get around to using your frequent flyer points because the seat allocation has gone or it’s just too hard, there’s an expert who can do it for you.


Steve Hui, former Macquaire Bank accountant started a company two years ago helping people with their own business, acquire air points with the money they would already be spending.

In an article in the Sydney Morning Herald last week it said, “If you own your own business and you’re spending more than $80,000 annually, you could be flying all over the planet in swanky business class for next to nothing, simply by using your credit card reward points.”

The same applies to personal expenditure.

By charging a subscription Hui helps clients earn more air points by using the right credit card, assists them in selecting the right airlines, sources frequent flyer seats on major airlines and books their tickets.

David Flynn, editor of the Australian Business Traveller website says although it would be possible for the average punter to gain the mastery of their frequent flyer points, it takes a lot of hard work. “Sure it’s possible to gain a high level of knowledge about points and how to use them but it’s hard yakka so why wouldn’t you hire an expert to do it for you?” he says. “It’s akin to hiring a personal trainer for your points; to whip them into shape.”

Both Flynn and Hui agree the biggest mistake most people make is not using their credit cards in the first place and so not getting points.

    Hi Jane,

    Thanks for the shout-out and inclusion onto your blog.

    What started out as just helping people to make the most of their points has now turned into a growing team of 7 to help many more people (especially in business) to use their points smarter and get to fly up the front more often.

    And if you or your readers have any questions, please feel free to ask.
    Just email me or tweet.
