On Saturday in Chicago, I gave two presentations–the first a “Live” American Airlines Award Booking and the second on the award chart sweet spots.

I will have a post later this week from the “Live” American Airlines Award Booking. Here, I wanted to share the slides from the Award Chart Sweet Spots talk for the people in attendance and those who couldn’t make it.

As I mentioned in Chicago, the information for this presentation mainly comes from a post, which I update frequently: How to Book a RTW Trip in 2016. Use These Underpriced Awards Around the World. That post is a lost of award price arranged by region. Many of the prices are links that lead to a full post explaining a time I booked the award for myself or a MileValue Award Booking Service client.
As I also mentioned in Chicago, this presentation is a nice companion to last year’s presentation on booking round-the-world awards, which are now best done by stringing together one way sweet spot awards. Here are the slides from last year:
