What is BoardingArea?
Started over 10 years ago, BoardingArea served to inform business travellers of air miles or other decent deals.
Fast forward to today, BoardingArea is more of an ‘aggregator' of articles written in all sorts of languages serving millions, probably billions of people of very contrasting needs all around the world
Who are the BoardingArea bloggers?
There are some BoardingArea bloggers who are more recognised than others. There are others whose names or faces you probably would not even recognise if they went on international television shows.
What you probably didn't know is that every blog works on an individual basis, so in some ways we are ‘competing' with each other, except in many ways we're not because we genuinely want as many readers landing onto the BoardingArea home page as ultimately it attracts advertisers – and maybe it can help pay for our next Tier Point run or whatever.
In fact if you click on the “our bloggers” link you quickly realise there are LOADS of bloggers. So many that I didn't actually even bother to count.
Filter what you need
Let's be frank. Readers in the UK and Europe (the majority of readers of this blog) probably do not want reminding that Chase Sapphire Preferred or whatever US credit card awarding 2 gazillion air miles for the twentieth time this year.
Also if you're unable to read the multitude of other languages that now appear on the main BoardingArea home page, then chances are you will want to filter out a bit.
You can either select a category to suit you, such as the “UK Blogs” filter at the top or one of the various other languages. Or alternatively bookmark one of the links below and just check your updates as you need from there:
Follow individual bloggers
Beyond filtering, you should try to follow individual bloggers whose style or content you identify with! Of course, being a Points to be Made reader you obviously want to follow our social media pages:
My most laborious but rewarding 'research' if you can call it that.

Or you can subscribe to our mailing list. (If you read on a mobile device you might need to scroll near the bottom – yeah I need a redesign I know…!)
Hopefully all these tips will help you get the information you need much more efficiently.
