About Me

PointsNerdHello and welcome to the world of the Obsessed Points Nerd!

My name is Derrick and I am an IT professional but I’m obsessed with traveling using reward points and miles.

For as long as I can remember I have been extremely frugal. I will negotiate  or try and get a deal on everything. Likewise, I love to travel, experience different cities and cultures, but I hate using my hard earning money to pay for it. That’s how I got started with points and miles. Once I realized the savings and value redeeming reward points and miles brought, I was obsessed. After spending years traveling on pennies on the dollar, I took some friends advise and decided to start this blog. I’m always looking for the best way to save on travel, so I decided to share my experiences.

Since I have a 9 to 5, I understand it’s important to strategically plan upcoming travel and redeem existing points and miles wisely. This blog is a dedicated to the weekly frequent flyer, the everyday family only capable of taking one or two trips a year, or even the new college graduate. Yes, you too can travel for less with points.

Welcome again.
