Where do you see yourself traveling this year? A points and miles strategy can help you get there.

Many sites share advice and deals but write from the perspective of people who live in large cities with major airport hubs.

The purpose of Southern Points is to fill this void in part, covering the heartland of America and finding the best deals from wherever you’re departing – even regional airports!

In addition, credit card rewards are an important part of a points and miles strategy and are included in the analysis of this site.

Southern Points also digs deep into international travel experiences, travel across the Southern U.S., departing from regional airports, and destinations in America’s heartland.
