I started helping readers book their award travel with an award booking service, Book Your Award, in 2009. Ten years ago Steve Belkin came on as my partner. Steve literally wrote the book on large scale mileage exploits. He’s been famous in mileage circles for 30 years, we’ve known each other for 20 years, and for a decade now he’s helped redeem billions of miles.
I can’t do it all myself. There’s too much at stake. And there are very few people that I trust to deliver at the level I’m committed to. Steve, my partner and friend, has decided to step back from award booking after 10 years.
Fortunately I’ve found the only folks to work with that I both trust and that have the capacity to deliver at scale: point.me. One Mile at a Time‘s PointsPros service merged with JuicyMiles to create both a tool to efficiently search award space yourself and a full service booking agency, and I’m thrilled now to join as a senior advisor.
Point.me has well-known investors including founders of ITA Software (now Google Flights); the founder of Dropbox; Jeffrey Katzenberg; and Bethenny Frankel (Shark Tank).

If you just want to try their self-serve tools, here’s a special code that discounts it to $1. In additional to powerful searches, the graphics walk-throughs of exactly how to do everything at each step from joining a program, to transferring points, to booking the ticket are invaluable tools.
There’s no one else like Steve Belkin and no way I could have maintained the award booking service for this long – 13 years! – without him. His knowledge and dogged determination have been incredible for clients, and truly meaningful for me. As he retires from booking award travel after a decade, I’ll have the support needed from point.me to continue to help deliver the award travel clients need for their hard-earned points.

I’m looking forward to working with the team at Point.me – and continuing to help readers and program members get the most from their miles.
[…] Since they also offer full service concierge booking, and they’re doing an incredible job and are being built by people I greatly respect, I’ve even partnered with them in my own award booking business. […]
