The Second Edition of the Free-quent Flyer's Manifesto is now available!

I could not be more excited to announce that the Second Edition of my eBook, The Free-quent Flyer's Manifesto, is now available through! If you've already purchased the Manifesto, thank you! Your copy should be updated automatically in the next 24-48 hours (although if it's not, let me know, since Amazon is a bit unclear on that point).

 If you haven't purchased a copy yet, here are a few of the many reasons you should consider ordering a copy of the Second Edition:

  •  It's the only work of its kind. The Manifesto is a careful compilation of the ins and outs of every major American hotel and airline loyalty program. I parsed the details of earning rates, award charts, and elite status so you don't have to. All you have to do is open it to the relevant page.
  •  It helps support this site. If you find the groundbreaking work I do here on the blog useful, and want me to continue reporting on the cutting edge of manufactured spend, credit card application techniques, and maximizing your points haul, there's no better way to support the site than buying the book, leaving a positive review, and recommending it to your friends and family. This website is a labor of love, but it also costs money to maintain, and all the money I earn from eBook sales go straight towards paying my hosting costs.
  • It's an instant winner. When I run occasional promotions, for example connecting people with the brief-but-lucrative Google Wallet opportunity to manufacture thousands of points for free , every reader who sent me their Amazon receipt got an instant Google Wallet account and the ability to send money using their rewards-earning credit cards.
  • It's never been cheaper.  With the release of the still-groundbreaking Second Edition, I've lowered the price from an exorbitant $4.99 to the eminently reasonable $2.99.

If you've already purchased a copy of the Manifesto,  thank you again! If you haven't yet purchased your own copy, there's never been a better time to do so.
