All, please let me know if there are specific topics you would like me to cover. Here are a few possible topics (but I'm open to others):

* creative ways to earn lots of points and miles without credit card churning
* how to meet minimum spend requirements for credit card sign up bonuses
* how to earn elite status without flying or hotel hopping.
* maximizing shopping portal rewards

1. Frequent Miler on maximizing value with gift cards and other opportunities to leverage value with miles and points.

2. Delta Points about maximizing value with Delta.

I'm sure both of them will try to incorporate any suggestions you have as they work out the details of their talks, so feel free to post your ideas of what you would like to discuss.

You can go here to find both of their blogs:

We'll also definitely have time to share tips / questions with each other and do the Best Vacation ever round robin and talk about our future dream vacations and how to make them a reality.

Thanks. Kiva is a great idea for a topic (and it does meet your criteria)

Small change for me. I'll be at the library but no other events. Leaving for Helsinki that night.

Do you want to reserve a spot for all 3 main events - OCI, Library talks, and Webers?

Everyone: I'll be back online more starting this week. See all of you a week from Saturday!

Keep me updated on your status so we can make the reservation numbers accurate.

Unfortunately, I found out that I won't be able to go to Cottage Inn saturday night. I'll still be going to the library talk though.

Please count me in for the afternoon library session, and possibly the Cottage Inn session as well - just found out about this, hope I'm not too late!

Possible topics: Best (local) ways to meet minimum spends, with a focus on local retailers and merchants and experiences with them.

If folks are interested, I'd be happy to give a mini-lecture on rental car tips and tricks.

Hello! I live approx. 45min from Ann Arbor. I am a newbie to this miles and points game and I am interested to join the 1-5pm discussion in Ann Arbor Downtown library so I can learn from the experts.

Can I still join? I am also planning to bring a friend if it is ok. Thank you so much!

You all have a great weekend.
