Tip#3: Earn Miles without Flying

Most people who fly frequently doesn’t bother anymore in earning miles without flying. For cheapskates like me, I scoured the internet constantly researching on how I could get my most coveted free air ticket.

I’ve been lucky enough to earn some miles using the following:

1. Miles from Airline Partners: Most airlines have non-airline partners such as banks, hotels and other merchandising companies. You now can earn miles through online shopping, sending flowers or renting a car and other stuff. Check out your favourite airline’s websites for more details. I’ve never tried earning miles through online shopping, but I’ve earned a lot of miles through hotel stays.

2. Answer Surveys:, one of my favourite websites gives me 5 miles for every survey that I answer. I already accumulated 500 miles last year which I deposited to my Asia Miles account. The surveys are short, maybe around 5-15 questions each and it won’t last you 5 minutes to answer them. Sign up now and start earning miles.
