How To Travel For Free To Your Dream Destination In The Next 90 Days Or Less
Are you itching to take a trip somewhere warm and tropical but can’t afford it? Maybe it’s snorkeling in the beautiful clear waters of Hawaii. Maybe it’s sipping on champagne as you sail into the sunset somewhere in the Caribbean. Maybe it’s getting lost in the rolling hills of Tuscany while enjoying some fine wine and cheese. Or maybe it’s kicking back at the Hilton Resort in Thailand with an upgraded room that has the most incredible view as I’m currently doing. Wherever it is you dream of visiting but haven’t been able to because of not being able to afford it, we’re about to change that. Follow my straight forward and easy to follow instructions below and you’ll be at your dream destination sipping on Pina Colada’s (or your drink of choice) in 90 days or less. I seriously don’t think there’s a better health and happiness remedy than traveling. OK maybe running and a good red wine are up there as well but traveling still takes the cake in my opinion. Traveling allows us to live, to breath, to be free. It allows us to “explore, dream, discover” as Mark Twain so wonderfully put it. I know traveling isn’t for everyone but if it’s for you, awesome! You’re exactly who I’ve created this post for. Let’s dive in and get you traveling to your dream destination for free ASAP. You Don’t Need Money To Travel, What You Need Is Points The fastest most effective way to begin traveling for free is to cash in on incredible bonuses credit cards offer. Because they’re all competing with each other for your business, they offer insane sign-up bonuses. This use to scare me because I didn’t understand how it all worked and I didn’t have anyone to break it down in a way that I understood it and felt comfortable with. I didn’t have someone guiding me to do this first, that second, and this third – straight, easy, and to the point. That’s why I’ve created this here for you to provide you with what I wish I had years ago. Applying For Credit Cards Offering Lots Of Points As A Sign-Up Bonus Do you need good credit to do so? No but it certainly helps. Does applying for credit cards negatively affect your credit? That’s the most ridiculous myth out there. If anything, applying for credits cards and establishing credit HELPS not hurts your credit. For example, I have over 10 credits cards and my credit score is in the 800s. Here’s the key to cashing in on the massive bonus points these credit cards offer you when you sign up. Depending on the card you apply for, they usual require that you spend a certain amount with them in the first fews months to qualify for the bonus points. For example, having to spend $4,000 in the first 3 months of getting getting approved and receiving the card in the mail. I know, sounds like a whopping amount and it is. Let’s talk about how to play the game right so that you don’t spend a dime more than you’re already spending on a regular basis AND still cash in on these bonus points that’ll soon be your ticket to free travel. I have a checking account with money in it, I’m assuming you do as well. Maybe you write checks monthly to pay things like your cell phone, utilities, groceries, dinners, etc. Maybe you use online bill pay to pay these monthly expenses. Take a second now to tally up how much you pay per month in expenses that comes out of your checking account. Maybe you pay everything in cash… that’s fine too. What’s that amount for you when you add it up? For example, here’s my monthly expenses that I use to pay out of my checking account: Cell: $130 Utilities: $225 Car Insurance: $75 Business Operating Expenses: $100 Gas For Car: $200 Groceries: $300 Spending: $800 When I add up all of these monthly expenses I pay for regularly on a monthly basis it adds up to $1830. So that’s $1830 that’s coming out of my checking account every month. Here’s how to satiate the initial spending credit cards require you to spend with them in order to cash in on their bonus points. Instead of paying all of these expenses directly from my checking account which earns me absolutely nothing, I use the credit card I applied for to pay all of these expenses. In doing so, all my expenses are still paid. The only difference being because I paid using my credit card, I am now well on my way to satiating the amount they require me to spend in the first 3 months of getting the card to get my bonus points. Let’s do the math real quickly. If my expenses are $1830 per month and I’m using my credit card to pay all these expenses and THEN paying the off the credit card using the money in my checking account (one extra step), in three months I will have spent/paid $5490 with them, therefore meeting my required $4000 spend in 3 months. Make sense? All I’ve done here it added one extra step. How I use to pay my expenses: Pay expenses using checking account money = get nothing, no points. How I pay my monthly expenses now: Pay expenses using credit card = pay credit card using money in checking account = get points! One extra step, that’s it! If it sounds to good to be true, it’s not. I use to think it was to good to be true, that it couldn’t possibly be that easy to rack up points and travel for free but it really IS that easy. My only regret is that I didn’t start this process sooner. What Credit …
