Always a fan of flying, it was only natural that Spencer was drawn to finding a way to improve the travel experience.
Like many, he started this journey searching for cheap flights to take him around the world. This was fun for a while, but Spencer was intrigued by the idea of flying in business and first class!
Throwing himself into what became an extensive research project, Spencer spent 3-4 hours per night learning everything he could about frequent flyer miles over the course of several months (he thinks this is normal).
Spencer has put that knowledge to use by booking some of the top premium cabin award flights in the sky. Fortunately for his friends, he helps them figure out how to travel too 😉
Spencer has been a guest speaker in multiple shows on YouTube touching on maximizing points – Geobreeze, Waller’s Wallet, Every Passport Stamp, and Miles Talk. In addition, Spencer has been on multiple podcasts such as Beyond The Lens podcast, Miles to Memories, and Saverocity Observation Deck where Spencer discussed airline cancellation policies, award trends and more.
Spencer graduated from the University of Notre Dame with a degree in political science and now works in Washington, D.C.
When he’s not searching for fun award redemptions, you can find him playing softball on the National Mall, watching Notre Dame football, or enjoying a fine bourbon.
