Steps to travel hacking:
1. Decide where you want to go
2. Find the credit cards that will get you your flights and hotel (message me and I can help with this)
3. Get and meet the minimum spend on each card one at a time
4. Book your trip
5. Have the best time on your FREE trip!!
My other strategy...get all the Chase Ultimate Rewards!

“I don’t travel enough to redeem travel rewards.”
🌵
This is a common misconception about free travel.
🌵
Yes, travel rewards can help you take some amazing trips that you otherwise wouldn’t have taken, but they can also help you extend your budget to take more trips or just to help with everyday expenses.
🌵
We just saved $2,100 on a recent trip that we can now use for more travel or to just put towards our normal budget.
🌵
Check out the link in my bio to see how we used travel rewards to save a boat load on a recent trip to Phoenix, Arizona.

We now have 334,703 Chase Ultimate Rewards points! I’m looking forward to putting them into action for the very first time when we book our trip to Greece sometime this year.🇬🇷😃

Below is the breakdown of these points per card and how much the points are worth.

💳Chase Sapphire Preferred
🖊Signup Date: 12/28/17
⭐️Signup Bonus: 50,000
💰Current Points: 134,962

💳Chase Ink Business Preferred
🖊Signup Date: 2/24/18
⭐️Signup Bonus: 80,000
💰Current Points: 199,741

✔️Total: 334,703
💵Cash Value: $3,347.03
🗺Travel Value: ~$4,183.79

❌Annual Fees Paid: $190
💵True Cash Value: $3,157.03
🗺True Travel Value: ~$3,993.79

Since I recently opened two new cards with two new spending limits to meet, we are not using the Sapphire Preferred or the Ink Business Preferred much at all right now and therefore will not be earning many Ultimate Rewards points for a while.

The two new cards are the Chase Southwest Rapid Rewards Premier Business and the Chase Southwest Rapid Rewards Premier. For more info about the four credit cards I now have and why/when we chose them, tap the link in my bio to view the links for the blog posts I wrote about each card.

While you’re there, check out my blog posts about Debitize, the free service that we have connected to the two personal cards. It takes each transaction amount out of our checking account the next morning and pays off these two cards every two weeks. Business cards cannot be linked to Debitize.

As always, my credit card posts are aimed at those who have the discipline to use them without carrying a balance and paying interest or overspending. Know yourself and know your limits!🧡

First time I got to fly on business class after saving up on Chase travel points. EVA Air’s “Royal Laurel” class totally made the whole experience worth it from NY (JFK) to Taipei! Great food, attentive service, and total comfort. If you’re looking to travel to Asia, definitely consider this airline! #evaair #travelwitheva #iflyeva #taiwantravel #royallaurelclass #flights #asiatravel #jfkairport #tpeairport #journeyswithjp #chaseultimaterewards #unitedmileageplus

New feature: You can now use your Chase Ultimate Rewards points on Amazon purchases. Before, there was a specific Amazon Chase credit card that would accrue only Amazon points. Now, your Freedom, CSP, and CSR as well others can be used for Amazon purchases..

My daughter looks like a crazy person here, but we were digging these desert-inspired waffles at the @homewoodsuites in Chandler, AZ.
🌵
Stay tuned for a blog post describing how we saved over $1,500 on this 5-day trip using points and miles, including a completely free stay with @hiltonhotels.

✔ First flight of 2019 completed in style in a semi-private jet! #startasyoumeantogoon lol.
.
.
JetSuiteX was a cool experience! I never even saw the regular airport terminals - I checked in at their lounge in the area of the airport designated for private flights just 30 minutes before takeoff, they drove everyone (about 30 people) directly to the plane, and once we landed I just walked off the plane, grabbed a complimentary snack in their Oakland lounge, snagged my bag about 4 minutes later, and headed home! Soooo easy. No lines, no security shuffle, no stress.
.
.
I can't think of too many more scenarios where this would be the best financial choice (flights were stupid high across the board for New Year's Day so this experience was only $10 more than Southwest would have been, plus I was able to use #chaseultimaterewards to pay for it), but if the opportunity ever arises again, you'll catch me at my #bougie best with #JetSuiteX!

The Mayan ruins of Copan are breathtaking. This massive city was active from the 5th to 9th centuries BCE, and the valley was home to an estimated 20,000 people. Now, it’s a historic site easily walkable (less than a mile) from the small city of Copan Ruinas. Entrance to all of the aspects of the ruins (tunnels, archaeological museum, ruins themselves) runs $20 USD for non- Central American citizens. The site is still quiet enough that they record all visitors in a paper logbook. If I’d had more time, it’s just a short bus ride from Copan into Guatemala!
.
I paid for my hotel in Copan using Chase Ultimate Rewards points, redeemed online for a simple room costing $39 per night (2,600 points), including breakfast. .

This is part of the city sign in the San Pedro Sula Parque Central - forgive my creative cropping! A walk around the park was how I started my whirlwind tour of Honduras’ second largest city. Whenever I’m trying to get my bearings in a challenging city, I lean on @ihg Intercontinental hotels. They’re large, secure, and I’ve never been led astray by the concierges and staff. The $30/night budget hotels are better saved for ‘easy’ cities. Thanks for hosting, @realintercontinental_sps - I had a great time!

Most people don’t fully understand how they actually earn travel rewards through airlines, hotels, and credit card companies.
💳
Did you know that you can earn separate and additive rewards from airlines/hotels AND credit card companies for the same trip?
💳
In my most recent post, I explain how that works and how travel brands and credit card companies partner to give you a bonus on travel, in addition to the double earning you’re already receiving, just for using their cobranded credit card with that brand.
💳
Check out the link in my bio to see how brands like @hyatt offer up to 9X points on spending through their credit card.

It’s been so long since I obsessed over travel points, I forgot how much I missed it 😊 I’m currently planning my honeymoon to Greece (yes it’s a year out, don’t judge me) and excited to use my points again feels just like Christmas morning!
_____________________________________________________
I haven’t posted a points tip in a while so here it is: don’t always assume one company’s points are the best. I’m pretty loyal with Hyatt and Chase but they aren’t the end-all-be-all for travel points. So make sure to weigh all your options. I go into it in more detail in my blog post this week! As always, link is in the bio.

This was our home for the weekend! I'm not sure what's more stunning: this atrium from the top down or from the bottom up?

A special thanks to @chase #chaseultimaterewards for a ~free~ stay at what is probably the nicest hotel I've ever been to. Thank you @shekkiee_ and the rest of the @thebeekmanny for such great hospitality 🥰

I just recently redeemed 48,000 Chase Ultimate Rewards points for $649 worth of airfare. This is thanks to the bonus received when booking through Chase.

Working on a new adventure for Spring! It’s gonna be a grand adventure in the USA! 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸 Planning is always an issue with me as I want EVERY single@thing to be perfect! Doesn’t have to mean each day is planned, just the places we go and stay at. Renting a car as well after we fly to our destination (ALL FREE WITH POINTS!!!) Hoping to do more excursions then we normally do. 🤞
This trip our daughter is coming with and quite possibly be our last adventure we plan together as she ships off with the NAVY 5/2018 but we are also looking forward to all the places she will go that we can come visit her and go on those adventures!!! So proud of her!!!! 🇺🇸 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸#chaserewards #unitedairlines #chaseultimaterewards #travelblogger #travelforfree #travelphotography #travelling #familytravel #wanderlust #adventureisoutthere #usatravel #travelamerica #travelgram #traveller #travelholic #travelersnotebook #makingmemories #makememories #travelwithus #traveler #traveltheworld #bucketlist #globetrotter #globetrotting #vacation #vacationmode #justgo #goseetheworld #navy #usnavy
