        Upgraded Points (“UP”) was launched in 2016 by founder Alex Miller, with the mission to not only show travelers the real value of points and miles, but to also upgrade their overall travel experiences.

        UP works to achieve this goal by publishing free, highly researched, in-depth and intuitive content that aims to give our readers everything they’re looking for — and more. 千元神机Our experts spend anywhere between 5-20+ hours researching and crafting a single piece of content.千元神机

        The team doesn’t just publish content, though. With the airline and hotel industry constantly evolving and changing, content becomes outdated very quickly. That’s why 千元神机we review and update every single article on the site, regularly千元神机 – some as often as every month or quarter.

        We love hearing from readers who were able to take fantastic adventures, or experience great products they wouldn’t have otherwise managed, had it not been for the content we produce and share.

        That’s why UP exists and that’s what excites us.

        In 2016, UP welcomed over 1MM people to the site and in 2019 surpassed 20MM visitors. The brand continues to grow with increasing press and brand mentions.

        Founder & CEO

        Alex has been traveling for over 25 years and he has his parents to thank for this. Born and raised in England (and living there until he was 27), from a?young age Alex was lucky enough to set out on numerous family trips all over the world.

        During university, where he studied Business & Management with Spanish, Alex studied abroad for a year in Alicante. After graduating in 2007 his passion jumped to another level when he and 5 friends visited 10 European countries in just 30 days – all on a shoestring budget.

        This travel bug turned into a full-time obsession when Alex moved to America in 2011 after falling?head-over-heels in love?with Erin.

        Alex has since earned millions of travel points and miles, mainly through maximizing credit card sign-up bonuses and taking every opportunity to earn the most?points possible on each dollar spent.

        These points and miles have helped Alex to fly some of the most awarded international first-class products in the world, including Singapore Airlines, Cathay Pacific, Japan Airlines, Emirates, Etihad, British Airways & Lufthansa!

        Content Contributor & Staff Relations

        Erin currently maintains her status as Alex’s adventure-seeking partner-in-crime and contributes to Upgraded Points through in-depth content creation & relationship management.

        She caught the travel bug just after high school when her grandmother took her on a two-week, whirlwind trip around Europe. That was that – she’s been gallivanting around the globe ever since (26 countries & counting)!

        Alex’s persistence with cracking the points game wide open has allowed her to experience some incredible, new destinations and some pretty fantastic flight upgrades. She’s now fully invested in this lucrative industry hack with 6 different points-earning credit cards in her wallet. She’s constantly choosing the best card for the purchase at hand, capitalizing on category bonuses and checking portals to maximize spend.

        And it’s definitely worth all the effort – with?8 different First & Biz class products under her belt, Erin swears it’s an insane?way to fly, that will never (ever) get old.

        Erin has been mentioned in a number of publications, including: Lonely Planet, Business Insider, Forbes and Flight Network.

        Director of Special Projects

        Leigh Rowan brings a wealth of travel expertise and industry connections to the constantly-growing UP Team. Leigh has been a world traveler since his teens and has visited over 60 countries on 6 continents (Antarctica, he’s coming for you next!), often times traveling with his family in premium classes for little more out-of-pocket cost than an economy ticket.

        Leigh met his wife on an airplane (Alaska Airlines; OAK to SEA!), and they’ve been traveling together ever since, and even now, with little ones in tow! His two children (4 and 1 years old) have had American Airlines AAdvantage Gold and Delta SkyMiles Silver Medallion status – with a little luck and grit, they’ll both be at Platinum on each airline, soon enough!

        Anchoring our West Coast presence, Leigh lives and works in San Francisco’s busy entrepreneurial?and tech scene. He brings years of experience in the finance, frequently flyer/loyalty program, and technology sectors. When he’s not helping UP strike new relationships with advertising or tech partners, he’s helping busy executives manage their travels via his company Savanti Travel.

        Leigh studied Italian at the University of California, Santa Cruz, and did a brief stint in culinary school in Italy. You can follow Leigh’s frequent travels, occasional pictures of food, and infrequent musings on Twitter.

        Kellie joins the UP team after spending 9 years in the education sector, both in Higher Education and K-12. Over the years, she found her professional passion revolved around compliance, data reporting, and process implementation/refinement.

        Kellie has always enjoyed traveling, but was welcomed to the world of points/miles when her husband showed her how to make the most those points/miles to travel to Dubai, France, Thailand, Hong Kong, and a few more. Her favorite trip to date was their honeymoon when she got to fly Singapore Suites, The Apartment on Etihad, and Emirates First — all on points/miles.

        Kellie, her husband, and two dogs, Alley & Scotty Cameron, live in Salt Lake City where they spend time hiking, golfing, and watching a lot of basketball.

        Kellie holds a bachelor’s degree from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and a Master’s of Education from the University of Texas at Austin.

        Christine was born in Northern Michigan but spent most of her financial services career in the Metro Detroit area and a few years in New York. She now makes Northern Michigan her home but despite her remote location, she travels over 200,000 miles each year, most of it internationally.

        Christine has been writing about her weekend travels, personal finance, and travel tips for over 10 years. She has been a contributor to various online travel blogs, a regional men’s magazine, travel newsletters, lifestyle blogs, and authored a book about her weekend travels.

        Her travel philosophy is that “if you go where everyone else wants to go when everyone else wants to go there, you’ll get very little value for your travel dollar”. She plans her travels with that philosophy.

        Her expertise is traveling the world on a weekend with no pre-determined destination in mind, letting the cost of the airfare determine where she will go. She has over four million flown miles and elite status on all three major domestic carriers.

        Christine uses her miles to position to cities where deals can be found, preferably in business class, and uses rewards points to pay for the flights. She also uses her earned systemwide upgrades to fly in business and first.

        You can follow Christine on?Twitter.

        Katie is an Ohio native who caught the travel bug after spending a semester in college in Nottingham, England. In addition to exploring England, she visited Ireland, Scotland and the Netherlands during that time and loved every minute of it (everything except the hostel in Scotland – that’s an experience she doesn’t intend on repeating!)

        In 2015, Katie discovered the world of points and miles, and since then she’s earned countless points and has an embarrassingly large number of credit cards in her wallet (which she needs a spreadsheet to keep track of!)

        While luxury flights are nice, Katie is obsessed with great hotel redemptions. Her favorite hotel brand is Hyatt. She’s enjoyed many luxury stays at places like Miraval Arizona, Grand Hyatt Kauai, Andaz Costa Rica, and the Park Hyatt Chicago — all totally on points! You can read all about these trips and more on her blog, 千元神机Zen Life and Travel

        In addition to writing for Upgraded Points, Katie has also written for Million Mile Secrets.

        When she’s not traveling, Katie spends her time at home in Columbus, OH with her 6 year old daughter, husband, and 2 cats — all who benefit from her points and miles obsession (well, not the cats).

        You can follow Katie’s adventures around Columbus and across the globe on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook.

        Playing catch up, Amar embarked on an 11 country round the world gap year after graduation and then became well and truly hooked. The first gap year inspired a second which ended up being a 23 country down-the-world trip from Canada to Antarctica.

        Since then Amar has endeavored to turn his gap year into a ‘gap life’ and has spent the last 10 years traveling the 7 continents. He has also lived in places such as Australia, Colombia, Costa Rica and Mexico.

        Amar’s travel experiences started off in the humble roots of budget and backpacker travel but as he’s matured so have his tastes (whilst still looking for a deal!). Now he wants the finer things in travel such as a bed or cabin on his flights; and that’s where his passion for points developed.

        Christy was born in St. Louis, Missouri, but lived in Texas the majority of her life. Now, work has her living in the Bay Area with her husband and yellow lab. Her first international travel experience was for a summer study abroad program in Italy. After that, she knew that she was destined to travel as much as possible.

        Luckily, her husband worked at Southwest Airlines, so they were introduced to the exciting world of “non-rev” travel. This allowed them to visit over 30 countries – mostly on standby. After he left that role, she dove into the world of credit card rewards points to keep traveling for free!

        Besides travel, Christy’s other love is personal finance. She holds a BA in Accounting and an MS in Finance, both from Texas A&M University. She is also a Certified Public Accountant.

        Jamie first got his hook on miles and points during a high school choir trip to Europe, where he flew in Lufthansa First Class (thanks to his dad’s then US Airways miles) because economy was sold out.

        Years later, he started The Forward Cabin blog to teach friends and family about miles and points and delve in deep to the inner workings of airline and hotel programs.

        He’s helped organize Frequent Traveler University, where’s he’s spoken in depth on the loyalty programs of Amtrak, American Airlines and Kimpton Hotels.

        Highlighting on his knowledge of airline customer experience, Jamie was featured in American Airlines’ “Elevate” training program presented to all employees in 2016 talking about the essentials to customer service.

        Among several media?spotlights,?he’s spoken at Princeton University, and the New York Times Travel Show, been quoted in The New York Times, Travel and Leisure Magazine, The New York Post, The Fiscal Times, Skift, Forbes, New York Magazine, and Condé Nast Traveler, been featured on CNN, written for InsideFlyer, Road Warrior Voices/USA Today,?1000TravelTips.com, the official content platform for the Travel and Adventure Shows, and makes occasional guest appearances?as a?featured expert discussing the travel industry on FOX News.

        Consulting projects include clients such as Executive Travel, OurBus, ZED Aerospace, PEX+, American Airlines, iVisa and DoNotPay Travel, among others.

        In 2018, he was awarded the highest honor for exceptional customer service for Washington Dulles International Airport.

        Jamie holds a B.S. in Political Science from the University of Mary Washington, and is a certified Advanced Life Support provider with the Commonwealth of Virginia. In his spare time, he volunteers as an emergency medical technician on an ambulance, leads community CPR and First Aid classes, and is on the Board of Directors of his local Rotary Club.

        Michael first caught wind of the points and miles game in 2014 while at a bar in Washington, DC where the conversation amongst friends was quickly derailed because of an alert on a friend’s phone about a mistake fare.? That’s where the love affair with points and miles began.

        Michael’s first points and miles redemption was a trip to Southeast Asia where he flew Cathay Pacific from Newark to Bangkok (connecting through Hong Kong).

        By day, Michael works as a solar energy developer where he develops utility scale solar projects in the U.S. By night, Michael works as a Senior Points Contributor at UpgradedPoints and runs his travel blog Points With Q.

        At Upgraded Points, Michael specializes in points redemptions. He has vast knowledge of award programs and helps show readers how to receive the most value through booking award flights around the world.

        Currently based in New York, Lindsey spent her childhood in Connecticut dreaming of far-off places. Her first flight was to Disney World at age 11. Her second flight was for a high school field trip to Italy, though travel as a career didn’t stick until she studied abroad in London during college and discovered the true power of her passport.

        Since then, she’s worked as a travel editor at Jetsetter and Travel + Leisure, where she reported on everything from gorilla trekking in Uganda to hot hotel openings in Singapore to, yes, Disney World.

        Back home, she lives with her husband and their two black cats, Minerva and Juno. Follow her travels on Instagram?and check out who else she writes for at?lindseytravels.com.
