Mattress Running on the Today Show

Today Show Earn More Points and Miles

For those of you who are interested in watching my Today Show segment, you can now watch it online. It wasn’t quite as mortifying watching myself on tv as I had imagined. I’m completely weirded out by my voice, as it sounds nothing like I thought, but perhaps I should get my hearing checked.

I woke up this morning at 8 AM to a tweet from Benny letting me know it had aired (on the east coast), so I caught it online. Overall, it was great shooting the segment and I learned a whole lot about the process. “I’ll see you in Tahiti!”

  1. Ariana – congrats again, great interview! You are so cool, calm, and collected. You make all of us points and miles collectors look good 🙂

  2. Hey nice work. Didn’t know you quit your full time job to pursue this.

    Question: Weren’t the news cast curious as to how it is possible to mattress run, get credit cards, and spend a lot without steady stream of income.

    Thank god you did not mention vanilla reloads. Good work.

    • Thank you! I wouldn’t dream of talking VR’s on national tv- I haven’t met my miles goal yet. 🙂 They didn’t really go in depth with the questions, though off camera I did explain how credit cards factor into this. I think they wanted to focus more on the mattress running aspect.

  3. These types of horn-tooting events aren’t going to win you many friends in the community.

    • Nothing horn tooting about teaching people how to see the world for less. But thank you for taking the time to comment.
