About me

My name is John Butler and welcome to TravelWithMiles.com!

20140211-193219.jpgI stumbled into the miles and points game while trying to plan a vacation to Thailand.  I ended up with a 5 month, 15 country, 35,000 mile journey around the world in Business Class only paying $579.11 in taxes!  And that was before I really knew what I was doing!  This web site is to tell everyone else how to do what I have done. If you don’t know how frequent flyer miles work, read our Frequent Flyer Miles for Beginners.  If you know the basics, then start out with the Getting Started Page, and then move on the the Easy Quarter Million Miles! Here is my travel map so you can see where I have been! Most of these I traveled to for almost free and you can too! You can find me on Google+, Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook.
