Do you wish you could figure out how to use your miles and points more efficiently? Want to learn all about the best hotel and flight redemptions along with ways to earn points and miles with/without traveling? The USA TODAY TRAVEL Frequent Traveler University is heading south to cowboy country and tickets are now on sale.

FTU Dallas will be held at Hyatt Regency DFW Airport from April 17-19, 2015. It’s a great way to learn new things, brush up on topics, get program updates, network with like-minded folks who love to travel, and enjoy some good ol’ Texas hospitality.

There will be two different tracks at FTU Dallas, Regular and Advanced. In the past, the Advanced sessions have sold out extremely fast so if you are interested I recommend jumping on this right away. Please make sure to purchase the right event though as there are no refunds!

Here’s a link to the Regular FTU Dallas.

Here’s a link to the Advanced FTU Dallas.
