Last night’s Freddie Awards were awesome! If you weren’t there you missed a first class party celebrating achievements in loyalty programs around the world. This was the 25th anniversary of the Freddie Awards and I’m very happy I was able to attend. The highlight of the evening (and afternoon) for me was meeting and spending time with my fellow BoardingArea bloggers. I lunched with Rene and Greg, aka Delta Points and The Frequent Miler, then adding The Weekly Flyer from Points, Miles, and Martinis to the mix in the afternoon at the pre-party, and finally, sharing a car ride back to the city with Glenn from The Military Frequent Flyer. Good times. I am continually impressed by the caliber of people blogging at BoardingArea, and that feeling was reinforced by spending time with these and several other fellow bloggers last night.

There was a LOT of Tweeting going on all night, and you don’t need me to tell you who the winners were. Just head over to and check it out. This was my first Freddie Awards, but I hope it won’t be my last. 🙂
