About The Points Guy

Brian Kelly has traveled around the world, going places most people can only dream of, and always doing it in style. But his goal is to let you know that his lifestyle is entirely within reach—if you just know how to work the system. After years of constant flying for his finance job, he found that if you can cleverly navigate a credit card’s point system, you can fly cheaply all the time. He decided that he shouldn’t keep it to himself, so he created his blog The Points Guy, expanding into social media to spread the word. With an ever-expanding fan base of over 2M followers across Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter, as well as features appearing in publications as prestigious as The New Yorker, Brian is helping more and more people meet their globetrotting goals.
