Point Hacks’ mission is to help as many people earn the most points they can. And to use them in the most effective way for their travel goals.
We do this by:
- Showcasing the best deals to earn more points – from banks, airlines, hotels and their loyalty program partners
- Working with partners to develop bespoke points offers, where possible
- Highlighting the best ways to use your rewards points for maximum value and to meet the reader’s travel goals
- Covering non-rewards products, deals and offers that help your travel budget go further.

Keith Mason started Point Hacks in early 2011 after booking a round-the-world trip with his then newborn first daughter. He was over 6 feet tall and wanted to avoid travelling in Economy Class. He found that information online about earning and using points to travel with more space and comfort was weak. It was either not relevant for Australian-based travellers or buried deep in forums, overseas websites or private groups.
After managing to get his family around the world in Premium Economy and Business Class for less than the cost of an Economy ticket, he was hooked. There are reviews of all of his flight and hotel experiences here.
He started to write about what he’d found and condensed it into more easily-readable content. Doing this made Keith remember tips and tricks he’d learned and could more easily pass these on to others.
