Barcelona is such a great city. With the perfect amount of beach and city, I can most definitely live here. Starting with the food. It’s surprisingly cheap to eat. And aside from the food being affordable, the entertainment is intriguing. Like the traditional flamenco show. You’ve seen nothing in Barcelona if you don’t attend a flamenco show.
For the last couple months people have been asking us how we managed to stay 6 nights for free in Bora Bora. Most people don’t believe us because they think it’s impossible to stay for free at one of the most expensive destinations in the world. Well I can assure you that its definitely possible and we just did it about 4 months ago. Here’s the proof:
Our over-water bungalow at the Intercontinental and Thalasso resort in Bora Bora.
We’ll that’s definitely us in Bora Bora at one of the best hotels, rated 3rd best hotel in Bora Bora on Tripadvisor.com, but how did we do it?
This is a review of our 2 short but awesome and active days in Hong Kong. Our day started early in the morning. The plane arrived to Hong Kong at 6:00am and it was too early to check into our hotel (JW Marriott Hong Kong), so we decided to leave our luggage in the hotel and started touring and walking around the city. We didn’t want to waste any time because our stay in Hong Kong was going to be very short, just 2 days and there’s just so much to see and do in Hong Kong.
I definitely like taking advantage of the off-peak deals that some Airlines offer because it means more free flights for less required miles.. US Airways has some very nice deals with its award chart if you happen to be traveling during the right period. If you still haven’t planned your winter trips, you may want to consider a getaway to Europe or South America. Either of these will cost only 35,000 miles round-trip in coach. With the The US Airways Premier World MasterCard we can earn this miles after just the first purchase with the card. You could be flying for Free very fast with this card, which is why I highly recommend it! Continue reading →
Hawaii is an awesome vacation destination with the perfect mix of beach, scenery and adventure but accommodations are not cheap. I have selected five amazing Hawaii hotels that we can stay for Free by redeeming Starwood Preferred Guest points that we can easily earn with the Amex SPG Credit Card. I am going to focus on the affordable destinations where a couple can get a 5 night vacation for a reasonable amount of points in a 4-5 star Hotel.
Whether you want to visit Maui, Kauai, the Big Island or Oahu, every island has an affordable hotel where we can use our Starwood Preferred Guest points. Continue reading →
The Flight Deal posted that because a Norwegian online travel site is not correctly pricing fuel surcharges, which is letting people book flights to Europe for $150. It’s good on United flights from the US to Europe, the Middle East and India. Milan appears to be the cheapest at $150 or so round trip. Dates are good sporadically in December and then January – March.
I have seen flights from New York to Milan for just $150 round trip in the middle of February! Continue reading →
Earlier this year we started using the Barclaycard Arrival World Mastercard. We applied for this card a couple months ago when I was looking for a new travel rewards card that would earn me lots of points to redeem for free trips. This credit card has been great for my wife and I to accumulate lots of points for free flights and hotel nights. This is an awesome travel credit card that I recommend anyone interested in traveling for very cheap to have because you can redeem the points for free flights and hotels! This card is offering a huge welcome bonus of 40,000 points for first time customers which equals to $440 of free money to spend in hotels or flights. This is an offer that we should all take advantage of because its basically a gift of $440 dollars to redeem for travel. Since we’ve had this card for a couple months now, this is my review of The Barclaycard Arrival World Mastercard.
My Name is Guillermo Rodriguez and my wife is Samantha. We have earned and redeemed millions of airline miles and hotel points since we got married in 2008 – Almost all of them were earned without having to fly in airplanes or staying in hotels. They were earned by applying for travel credit cards with big reward programs.
This picture was taken in Central Park in front of the outdoor Ice-Skating Ring!
It’s not uncommon to be approved for 10+ credit cards on a single day. Especially if you are new to miles and points and have lots of credit card opportunities. As you become more advanced, your choices become limited.
A good first credit card application spree will include some (or all) of the following cards: Continue reading →
