FTU Advanced San Diego 5 Ticket Slots for Rapid Travel Chai Readers

Check out our Top Rewards Cards to boost your points earning and travel more!


Tickets for FTU Advanced San Diego 2015 went on sale last week with no advance notice and at 5 am Pacific time. There was a lot of buzz and a lot of grouchy people on the West Coast waking up a few hours later.

Since I regularly speak at FTU, the organizers have opened 5 slots for Rapid Travel Chai readers (similar slots have been awarded by FrequentMiler and Hack My Trip). At times I only catch up week to week so I want to reward readers who are not 24×7 attached to their screens.

Important: these are only slots available for registration. These are NOT free tickets. Those receiving one of 5 registration codes must pay the $249 registration fee as well as all other attendance costs, the same as any other attendee.

FTU Advanced San Diego:

  • Where: Hyatt Regency Mission Bay Spa and Marina, San Diego, California
  • When: March 6-8, 2015
  • What: Details and registration link here
  • Registration Price: $249
  • Hotel room price: $165 per night

I may not be able to attend this event as I may be doing something really cool somewhere in the Pacific, 70 years in the making.

Rules: please leave a comment on this post expressing your interest in attending FTU Advanced San Diego.

Comments must be submitted by Friday, September 26, 2014 at 23:59 PM PDT (going Pacific time for my West Coast friends!). You can only enter once. Prior comments on this post will be grandfathered in for inclusion. Comment must include your email address in that field so I can contact you regarding this matter. Those awarded a booking code will be notified by Saturday, September 27, 2014 at 23:59 PM PDT and have until Friday, October 3, 2014 at 23:59 PM PDT to register and pay for the event, if not, the code will be withdrawn and randomly awarded to another entrant.

I want to reward regular Rapid Travel Chai readers, so the first 3 codes will be randomly awarded to only those who have previously (as of 8:00 am PDT, September 23, 2014) commented on a post at Rapid Travel Chai. Be sure to use the same name and email for this comment as your prior comment so the system recognizes you.

New readers are welcome, so they will receive the next 2 codes, and any additional should regular readers not claim the first 3 slots.

I already have a ticket so don’t need one. Just wanted to comment that there’s a chance you won’t be at the San Diego FTU!?!?!??! 🙁
Your sessions have always been entertaining as well as informative. If you do go someplace in the Pacific during that time (WWII related, perhaps?) then you will be missed.

This is a fantastic idea Stefan. Love reading your blog, your trip reports from India, especially your visit to Golden Temple in Amritsar remains my favorite. Being a fellow Sikh traveler who just finished visiting 100 countries in April and is looking to visit every country in the world like you, I’d love to be able to attend the FTU advanced in San Diego since I haven’t attended many of these. Thanks again for all your insights and unique perspectives in this “game”. Please Pick me 🙂

Not sure why but I commented last week and the post didn’t show up on your feed. Nonetheless, as a local San Diegan I’d be stoked to attend this event.

Thanks for considering me!

San Diego in March sounds nice. Staying at the Hyatt sounds even nicer. Sharing and learning with other frequent fliers makes it all the nicest!
