    African safaris are one of the most aspirational trips people plan. For many, it's a once-in-a-lifetime experience that can break the bank. We're joined by Howie Rappaport this week to help you use miles and points to defray some costs on what may be the most expensive vacation you plan. He also has a review of JW Marriott Masai Mara, a fabulous property to redeem points at. And, it's been a while since Richard has had a crazy Frontier Airlines experience. We round out the show with Richard sharing the latest Frontier adventure.

Good tips to maximize points and redeem points for travel

Hawaiiantarheel ,

Looking forward to every new episode!

I look forward every week to your new episodes. So nice to hear your discussions on award travels. Sounds like the both of you have balanced family lives which I appreciate. Being an empty nester now, I am listening even more attentively so I could maximize my award travels and points accumulation. Appreciate your insights on hotels in car rentals as well.

Please enough with the Bilt bell

I love the show…I love Bilt, talk about Bilt all you want. But for the love of god please stop with the bell noise. It was cute the first week, but it is so annoying it makes the show unlistenable.
