Finding someone to do an award booking for free is possible, though I don't know why anyone would expect it. You pay for a booking service's knowledge and time. A lot of awards can take time on the phone to book, and it takes practice to be able to get certain rules to stick with phone agents.

Many people on FT are great at doing this. People on FT are willing to give advice pro bono. But if you want someone to actually do the work for you, then a paid service works. There's supply & demand on it. And as far as I'm concerned, it's an honest dollar.
Actually, the best advice and the most helpful advice and the advice that I eventually ended up using and gaining from, was the one that I got here. From people who commented on my thread.

And as I explained above...I wasn't getting a lot of response on my thread so I was just looking for a little direction elsewhere but I didn't get it. Eventually I got it from my fellow FTers.

And read my thread. And then read what I posted about what EXACTLY I asked those bloggers.

And tell if you really feel, I was looking for someone to do the work for me.

Actually, I hadn't gotten too much of a response then. Which is why I turned to blogger #1. I emailed him on May 30th.

The others, I emailed later on without linking back to my thread...about getting help coming back.
But their responses weren't what I was expecting.

This, however, is pretty funny stuff:

I would love to know which blogger it is that is pitching you affiliate links when answering email.
PM me and I'll tell you.

P.S- Any additional suggestions you can think of, for my thread, would be welcome.

I run a very affordable, risk free award booking service where I can guarantee 1 on 1 customer service.

However, I am more than happy to provide free advice on FT.
