Hi
You have to start flying long haul;ie,London to Bangkok etc or with an Airline who adverties airmiles and the Airline who you are flying with invites you to join their group!! as a member.
Every time you fly "within" that group of airlines you get credited with the airmiles you have flown on "that flight" and when you reach a given number of airmiles you get a free flight.

Hi blue,

From what I can tell, signing up in the UK is pretty similar to Canada. Just visit the Air Miles site and fill in the info. They'll send you a swipe card that you can use at participating merchants, and then the miles start adding up.

It doesn't look like there are as many places to collect as here, though. I use my card when I do groceries and at the pharmacy, so every week I get at least a handfull. Plus there's the bank and a sports store and a home renovation place and such - a few 'big purchase' places that give you a big chunk of miles now and then. The best place to collect for me is on my credit card, though. As long as you pay off your balance, it's just miles in the bank every month.

Hope that helps!
Tway.
