Have you earned points or miles and are no sure how to get more out of those loyalty earnings?  Are you collecting loyalty points and miles and not getting the returns you desire? We’ve all signed up for airline and hotel loyalty programs with the hopes of seeing the world and scoring an upgraded room, without much of an idea of what he hotels and airlines are really offering us in return.   This is what the FTU is for … learning how to Earn & Burn.

Travel loyalty programs are rewarding for knowledgeable travelers who understand the ins-and-outs of the travel loyalty system, understanding how that system is intertwined with other programs and brands and ultimately those who understand maximizing the use of their points and miles greatly benefit.

The goal of the FTU is to teach you, the traveler, how you can earn more miles and points through not only travel, but through special offers as well. These offers are not always travel related, such as credit cards, bankcards and double points promotions through not only travel brands but other opportunities as well.

Through FTU you gain access to travel loyalty experts with an expansive knowledge of earning miles, capitalizing on promotion and effectively converting loyalty miles and points with a positive return on investment.

FTU’s diverse faculty of speakers teach and mentor on a wide range topics, for travelers of all experience and skill levels. From those just starting out on their journey to those who’ve been around the globe and back. Ultimately the goal of FTU is to teach you how to accrue more miles, and how to use those miles to your advantage, by leveraging insights of the best known experts in the industry.

At the conclusion of an FTU event you’ll head home with a better understanding of the travel loyalty programs you participate in, along with an abundance of knowledge, trips and tricks that allow you to make the most of your points and miles.

Attending the inaugural Frequent Traveler University Expo, this coming November 17th thru 19th in Chicago? Maybe just thinking about attending?    Well, here is your opportunity to meet one of our expert speakers who will educate and inspire you!


Meet Stefan Krasowski, author of the popular Rapid Travel Chai blog, and FTU Presenter.  Stefan’s travels began during his one childhood vacation, at age four, to Disney World, then as he grew up he saved up money by working as golf caddy to take his parents to the Wisconsin Dells, from their home in Minnesota to, for a weekend.


From his humble travel begins, now a New York based international business development executive and graduate of University of Pennsylvania’s The Wharton School, Stefan’s travels have now spanned 186 countries, and lead him to live and work in China for 8 years.


Through these experiences Stefan, has joined the ranks of the ‘Travelers Century Club,’ and founded the Rapid Travel Chai blog. The focus of Stefan’s Rapid Travel Chai blog is maximizing frequent flyer programs, and is dedicated to those who want to see the world and have jobs and a family still there upon their return.


Stefan believes that teaching others how to travel more effectively, and with an enriching experience, is the most fulfilling thing he does. Without Stefan’s extensive research and knowledge of travel loyalty programs he would not have been able to visit nearly as many countries as he has, and now his goal is to share this knowledge with you.


Presently Stefan is working to make traveler education a full-time professional career.
