Where we started.
I love to travel, but as a non-profit director and teacher, it’s hard to dream big when you’re not making the big bucks. So, I put my research and study skills to the test and began reaping the benefits of credit card rewards. In total my wife and I have received over $40,000 in free travel, and we have no plans of stopping.
And what we achieved.
2 Round-Trip Tickets to France
To propose to my wife.
2 Round-Trip Tickets to Hawaii
For the honeymoon
2 Int'l Business Class Tickets to Peru
Traveling to Machu Picchu in style.
Additional Domestic Travel To
Santa Barbara, San Diego, Seattle, Las Vegas, Santa Fe, Hawaii, Hilton Head Island, Charlotte, Nashville, and New York City.
Tour of Greece with a Business Class Ticket for $14
Almost free still counts.
2 for 1 Travel on Southwest
With their companion pass.
Airfare and Hotels for a 10-day Trip to Iceland
Additional Int'l Travel To
Turkey, Scotland, England, South Africa, Spain, France, Germany, Peru, New Zealand, Canada, Mexico, Costa Rica, and Iceland. Whew!
That’s over $5,000 worth of free travel earned every year.
Meet Caroline Lupini
Caroline is a travel writer who has spent years combining her knowledge of points with her love of travel. Truth is, she’s more likely to be on an adventure than at home (in Boulder, CO). Unlike many advanced rewards travelers, Caroline has an amazing ability to explain the world of points and miles to the average person. That’s why I’m so excited to bring her on board.
Last year, she traveled over 100,000 miles. In total, she’s been to 81 countries. While traveling, Caroline has also written for some of the most popular media outlets, including USA Today, Business Insider, and a speaking role at the New York Times Travel Show.
