Edmonton Miles & Pints Meetup September 2023

Josh and I are excited to announce that we are hosting our second Miles & Pints networking event this year, in our home base of Edmonton, Alberta!

Join Reed, Josh, and fellow Frugal Flyer readers from Edmonton and beyond, on Friday, September 15, 2023, from 7:00 PM onwards, at On Edge Brewing.

This will be a relatively casual evening for networking and discussion about all things travel hacking and credit card rewards.

Edmonton, AB T6E 1X2

We welcome miles & points enthusiasts of all knowledge levels to join us, and hope to see you there! Tickets are required, so secure your spot here.

The Venue

On Edge Brewing is a brand new brewpub in Edmonton, adjacent to the bustling Whyte Avenue (82 ave). This spot used to be Situation Brewing before it closed down. 

There is parking in front of the building and also some street parking nearby which may or may not have an additional cost.

The space inside has an open concept, industrial style, having been converted from an old bookstore. 

More importantly, On Edge, although not yet offering their own brews, has a nice offering of Sea Change beers on tap as well as many more canned beers.

The Event

This event will be a relatively informal meetup. We are aiming to have 20-30 attendees situated in a secluded section of the venue. 

The event will allow for networking and connecting with your fellow points enthusiasts over good food and drink. In-person events are the best setting to share our latest schemes and strategies for earning points, as well as discuss our travel plans, future and past. There will be no formal presentation.

Josh and I will personally be making an effort to meet and chat with everyone in attendance of course, and we will encourage everyone to do the same!

There will be no set end time for the event – everyone can come and go as they please. On Edge Brewing does close at midnight, however.

Food & Drinks

For this event, Frugal Flyer will provide an assortment of On Edge’s finest appetizers for everyone to share. 

We won’t be providing drink tickets or catered food. So make sure to bring your favorite credit card, or whichever one you’re working towards a minimum spend on ;).

Who Should Attend and Why?

In-person events are without a doubt the best environment for sharing miles and points secrets. While we write about a lot of what’s going on in the miles and points world, there are always tricks that simply can’t be shared online. 

Moreover, you get to meet and connect with other fellow travel hackers who share the same interest and drive as yourself. Some of my greatest travel exploits have come as a result of collaboration with like-minded people, and I’ve met some of my closest friends at events such as these in the past. Interestingly enough, I met Josh at a miles and points event back in 2019 and the rest is history.

In-person, events are the best way for those new to the space to ramp up their knowledge, as well as those who are advanced to collaborate and brainstorm new ideas. I can tell you that all of the practitioners at the pinnacle of this hobby have a large network of other miles and points enthusiasts they bounce ideas and questions off of.

So in conclusion, the value of attending these types of events cannot be understated as they will not only give you stimulating conversation for an evening but also the opportunity to build relationships for the future.

Get Your Tickets Now

We are charging a nominal fee for the event of $10 per person, primarily to ensure we have accurate numbers for attendance. The money collected will be used to purchase appetizers for everyone to share, as we believe events like these should be accessible to all.

The event sign-up is managed through Eventbrite. If you’re interested in attending, please purchase your tickets at the following link:

We will try our best not to turn anyone away if there is exceptional demand, however, I’d recommend buying your tickets as soon as possible to guarantee your spot. 

If anyone has any questions, feel free to leave a comment below. 

Otherwise, we’ll see you at On Edge Brewing on September 15!
