What is FTU?
If you’ve never been to an FTU event before, it is a place where people who love talking travel rewards gather to share tips & tricks and learn from some of the smartest experts in the world of miles and points.
The events rotate through the United States (and occasionally internationally) so that people who have a hard time traveling can more easily attend. And, for those of us with more flexible schedules, it gives us another excuse to hop on a plane and explore another city.
