Hey all! This past year I was introduced to the wonderful world of Travel Hacking. It just so happened to coincide with my family discussing an epic family reunion in the Philippines. Most of my family emigrated to the United States from the Philippines and we are trying to organize a once in a lifetime reunion in which every living member of our family would fly to the Philippines during Christmas 2012. This trip would be very expensive for most of my family, but when I found out about TH, a bulb lit in my mind. Why don't we use FFM to help pay for most, if not all of the travel related costs? I've brought up the idea to some of my family and some are getting it, but others are looking at me like I'm on crack. One of my cousins has already taken the plunge and signed up for the BA Card and has 100k miles. As experienced Travel Hackers, is there any advice that you might give to me that can help me convince my family that TH works and would be a great way to finance our epic family reunion? And has anyone ever done something like this on a large scale? Thank you for any help/advice you might be able to give.
