|Imagine this vacation, using free travel card rewards points!|
All right, my friends, I’m going to take a risky jump here and trust that you’ll come back to my blog again. I’m not the only travel blogger out there (REALLY — you didn’t know, did you?), though I do hope that this little corner of the blog-o-sphere is helpful. BUT, I know that I don’t know it all. So today, I’m taking a risk and sharing a link about travel card rewards that will take you to two other travel bloggers who are absolutely amazing! Just remember me. Okay?
Without further ado, I would like you to meet Nomadic Matt, and his friend Brian Kelly. Brian is featured this week at Nomadic Matt’s blog, explaining how to understand and maximize travel card rewards points. I like the post because Brian Kelly offers advice to maximize card points while still being financially wise. He is not encouraging you to go into debt or trash your credit score! That’s respectable.
We use travel card points, but I haven’t mastered it like he has. For example, we love to cruise and have enough cruise reward points to take a seven day cruise for two… now I just need to work out the babysitting. Free is definitely budget friendly!
At the moment, I don’t need more points on that card, so we are using another card to build up travel card points for free flights. Paying our regular bills by credit card and then writing a single check at the end of the month gives us thousands of points with no additional expense.
But like I said, I don’t have it mastered like Brian Kelly… so check out the post. If you leave a comment, please let them know I sent you! If you’ve taken a “free” points vacation, consider writing a guest post here. Not everyone understands points or how to redeem them… we’d love to learn from you.
Happy (hopefully free) travels!
