Navigating the world of airline rewards can feel every bit as frustrating and complex as air travel itself. But if you know how to manage your rewards like a pro, you can spend less time obsessively checking your point balance and more time enjoying the top-notch perks you earn.
The newest presentation from Quartz’s newsroom will help you think like an economist and choose the best airline points program for you.
Guided by economist and Quartz reporter Allison Schrager, we break down how to build smart strategies for earning and spending points. (Allison has a PhD in economics from Columbia University, and is deeply obsessed with airline points and credit card strategies.) We walk you through real examples of airline loyalty perks and highlight some of the best travel rewards credit cards on the market.
As with all of our presentations for Quartz members, we provide an original PowerPoint file so you can use and reformat our charts and slides as you wish. You will also find our notes and sources below each slide in PowerPoint. If you enjoy this presentation, you can read our slides on everything you need to know about Facebook’s Libra and the jobs of the future as well.
