Talking Frequent Flier Miles on Arise America

I recently appeared on Arise America on Arise TV talking about frequent flier miles and the way they have been and are becoming devalued. The recent news that Delta Airlines was going to a cash based frequent flier reward model sent shockwaves through the travel hacking world. Make no mistake, your miles are not worth what they once were.

I apologize for the crappy quality of the video. I had to record it off my computer as I never got a copy of it. Please also check out my article on Why Airline Elite Status is Less Valuable Now Than Ever Before.

Sharing is caring!


  1. It really does suck what Delta and United are doing. I have held onto miles for years accumulating them and using them sparingly and now I am kicking myself for not using them earlier.

  2. Good job Lee…you look great!

  3. You’re right, it kills the regular leisure traveler who is trying to hold onto silver status

  4. The game is up, hacking is dead!

  5. This works similar in other countries like Australia already. I don’t see it as a big deal.
