Alex’s journey with Miles & Points began in 2019, about a year after moving to Canada as an international student from Moldova. He has thrived by engaging with a strong community, while also eager to develop his own strategy and hone his creativity.
The excitement of the game, the ups and downs, the approvals, rejections, calls, trips, tickets, takeoffs, landings, cramped economy seats and luxurious suites with mountain views are all what drive Alex to continue earning and burning. His success has been driven by constant leaps of faith, for which he has been rewarded quite handsomely.
Award travel has reshaped his life in ways that go beyond aspirational flights and hotels. Alex has found a passion for aviation photography, now an indispensable hobby. He lives in Richmond near Vancouver International Airport, a prime location for planespotting.
As a former Prince of Travel writer, Alex has applied his broad understanding of the game to cover all sorts of topics, with a focus on aviation, creative uses of loyalty programs, and US credit card strategies.
