As a regular business traveler, I get to accrue miles/points with the airlines/hotels, but my airline tickets are bought for me and the hotels are paid with corporate card, so that limits the types of promotions and ways I can get those miles. I'd love to hear how other people in my situation maximize their miles/points accruing ability. So far this is what I do: - Enroll in any of the fly/stay X number of miles/days promotions. Sometimes that does not work as it requires booking directly from the site of the airline/company. Particularly true with some hotel chains, so if an hotel reservation is made for me, I am out of luck - If I reserve hotel on my own, I go through sites like fatwallet.com/mrrebates.com/etc to get cashback on the amount. It's not too much, but at 2-5%, it adds up through the year. Going through Expedia also helps, as you now get some sort of return in 3 different ways. - Same for airline tickets, but that only applies for foreign small scale airlines, so sites are hard to come by and typically it is only $4 for booking And that's about it, any other ideas are welcome!
