Tips for Traveling on the cheap!

I deviate from my normal posts to share what I love to do for money saving while prepping to travel. I stock up on points/miles/skymiles/rewards to have fun for cheap!

Here’s a quick breakdown of some current options. They will not last forever, so if the link isn’t valid, I will try to update it.

The Chase Sapphire Preferred ($500 reimbursement or better with using for travel points) is one of those that you can’t do but every couple years, and its Chase so not more than 5 cards in the last 24 months, so do this before Barclay etc.

Planning on flying a bit? Same Chase rules with this Southwest card:

Amex only gives the bonus once per card branding, so if you have done the Delta Skymiles Gold, do the platinum and visa versa.

This is my favorite card, the Barclay Arrival for travel reimbursement, long list of options, my cruise this year was how I used last years points, Disney through a travel site (undercovertourist.com) with this years points, can be redone 3 months after previous was closed

Feel free to ask questions! Dont get over your head in these things. Don’t increase spending to hit a mark. Find tricks like paying your mortgage through Plastiq.com

 

Thank you for humoring my rant!
