I preach about miles and points pretty much wherever I go. Whether it’s the grocery store clerk who comments on my nifty Chase Sapphire Preferred card or the Canadian immigration official who this week grilled me on my “so called job as a blogger,” I feel like I’m talking about points all the time. And that’s okay – after all, my name is The Points Guy, right?

However, on more than one occasion I’ve gotten the feedback that the site is great – but very difficult to navigate for a beginner. Fair point – so starting today I created a new Beginner’s Guide tab, which will hopefully serve as a starting point for many people as they embark on their points journey.

The guide is in it’s beginning stages, but I thought I’d pull together some of the most salient posts on earning and redeeming so people can at least sit down and get a good idea of what this game is all about. I have grand plans for video guides and better technology, so stay tuned. In the meantime, if you have any feedback on the guide or what you’d like to see, feel free to comment on this post, Tweet me or email me.
