Reap non-mile benefits
Today, rewards programs are diverse, and sometimes they offer incentives besides miles. Often, the benefits are substantial. Sojka points out that when miles aren't provided on purchases, airlines and hotel chains will often offer freebies that may be more useful than miles. For instance, some airlines may offer a free upgrade to first class after buying two flights, or hotel chain may offer the third night free when you pay for two. Ultimately, these are the kind of perks you hope to nab through your traditional points collecting, so keep an eye out for such promos and pounce.
