Upgraded Points (“UP”) is a fast-growing online resource designed to help you maximize the number of travel points you’re earning – and then use those for the best value possible.

UP is quickly becoming known for incredibly in-depth articles that leave (almost) no stone unturned – and that’s exactly our style.

(If you’ve read our guides on Google Flights, Costco Travel or Global Entry, you’ll know what we mean 😉 )

After all – it’s so much easier if we can give you as much information under “one roof” than having to visit lots of other sites to get the answers you need.

So, if you’re just getting started – we recommend visiting our beginner guides.

Our “Earn Miles” and “Use Miles” sections are some of the most popular on the site – and if you’re looking for a credit card that’s perfect for you, here’s a good place to start.

We’ve also covered in-depth the 4 major flexible point schemes, which are Chase Ultimate RewardsAmex Membership RewardsCiti ThankYou Rewards & Starwood Preferred Guest (SPG).


This year, UP will be expanding at a rapid pace as our team expands and we start covering many more “hot topics” in the points and miles space.

Here’s a small taster of what’s to come:

  • A brand new section dedicated to small businesses, helping them to maximize their point earnings and get setup!
  • Extensive reviews of the most popular travel sites and how you can use them to your maximum benefit
  • Points guides to help you fly to the most popular destinations in the world for the best value
  • Also – our own point valuations, airport parking guides and reviews, deep-dives into online shopping portals and so much more…

Thank you for spending some of your time here, we really appreciate it!
