Miles and Points
There are so many loyalty programs out there and they all have their pros and cons. In many circumstances there are much better programs to credit your flown miles to than just Qantas Frequent Flyer or Velocity, though of course those programs have their place. One of the drawbacks of these two programs is that their redemption charts are mileage based. This means that an award ticket from Sydney to Perth requires far more miles than a Sydney to Melbourne ticket. Which makes sense, considering they're called miles.
However, not all loyalty programs work the same way. Some airlines' programs have redemption rates based on regions rather than distance, meaning a domestic Australia award ticket is a domestic Australia award ticket regardless of the distance. And, as anyone based in Australia knows, distance can be a bit of a nightmare!
There are so many offers, bonuses, discounts, redemption rates, status tiers, earning rates and so on that knowing how best to maximise the value in these programs takes a ridiculous amount of research. Luckily, geeks love research!
