Happy weekend everyone! I come to you with a guest post about one of our favorite things to do in life – travel. But not just travel…travel on the cheap!
For example, my wife and I flew up to Glacier National Park last year for $11.20 each by using credit card points and bonus offers. We stayed 100% within our budget to accumulate those points.
In this article, I talk about how to get the most value out of your traveling adventures, including how to maximize your credit cards. Also, the timing of travel is much more important than many realize, and taking your trip during the off-season can save you a ton of cash. Also, did you know that airlines sometimes make mistakes with their fares? If you’re in the right place at the right time, you might be able to snag yourself an insanely low fare due to a mistake from the airline!
