Point.me is the first-of-its-kind flight search that enables travelers to redeem their airline and credit card rewards for better flights – for fewer points.
Our real-time metasearch engine pulls from over 40 data sources across the internet, compiling and normalizing the results so you can compare all of your points and miles options in the same simple format that you’re used to seeing for paid flights.
You can also see step-by-step guides and videos on exactly how to choose the best deal, transfer your points and book your reward flight across dozens of frequent flyer programs.
Strategic goals for 2024
There is currently no other award travel discovery tool on the market that does what Point.me does. In 2024, Point.me will continue to emphasize ease and accuracy for consumers – building confidence in using points also helps drive acquisition to our loyalty and airline partners, which is an important consideration in our long-term strategy.
We will also expand the functionality of our core service, while enhancing the enterprise offerings that power reward search for key financial institutions.
Lessons learned since founding
We are constantly learning new things, despite our decades of experience in the travel and loyalty industry! Two that stand out are that first – if you have the privilege to scale – you’re likely to be inundated with advice, well-intentioned ideas, analysis, thoughtful recommendations and so forth. We’ve learned the importance of both listening to expert suggestions, while also developing trust in our own instincts.
Second, we can’t overstate how crucial it is to have a founding partner you trust, who shares your values and ultimately has different strengths than you – that combination of abilities is what enables to support our team and drive rapid growth.
