This remains the Golden Age of loyalty programs, credit cards, and bank bonuses. If you have a good credit score, you can make it work for you – just like I made it work for me.
After graduating college in 2005, I quickly became indoctrinated into the belief that credit card and loyalty programs can deliver outsized returns on a very small investment. In the more than decade that followed, I spent countless hours researching every facet of loyalty programs and credit card awards. Along the way, I accumulated and redeemed over five million points and miles. I’ve redeemed miles for international first class seats on ten airlines, redeemed points for free stays at $1,000/night hotel rooms, and redeemed over $20,000 in credit card cash back and bank bonuses. And most rewarding, I’ve helped my friends and family by sharing with them the knowledge I spent thousands of hours accumulating. Everyday I research the newest developments and the best deals in the industry, and I am eager to share them with you.
