Welcome to Miles Briefs!

This is my new blog, where I plan to post news and information related to earning and using frequent flyer miles to fly for free (or cheaply) around the world. I’ve currently set up static reference pages for Earning MilesUsing MilesTips & Tricks, and Credit Cards. Now that everything’s set up, I hope to start blogging and posting regular updates.

Also in the menu bar are links to my other websites Points Briefs (about hotel points) and Deals Briefs (about saving money and deals in general). Currently, there isn’t anything on them, but you can expect them to launch in February 2016.

Please have a look around, and thanks for visiting!
