It is never too early to begin your summer vacation and I recently booked mine - 3 weeks in Europe!
If you book a flight this far out you can usually get it at the discounted price of about $1,200. I'm sure you guessed from the title that is not what I paid. Yep, the grand total for my round trip flight to London cost me $0! Nothing! Free!
If you read my initial post about travel hacking you know that I had the Southwest card at some point but wasn't in an area where they flew so it was inconvenient. Well, I've moved to Phoenix and it is a hub for Southwest so I'm about to be back!
In 2019 I'm going through Chase cards building up their Ultimate Rewards points which aren't a bad option but that was to kill time as I built to what I really wanted. Beginning of 2020 I'm going for the the holy grail of travel rewards. THE SOUTHWEST COMPANION PASS!
HELLO AND WELCOME!

In 5 years I went from living in a basement with Craigslist roommates to paying off 90k of debt, backpacking 3 continents, getting a house for myself and 5 rental units.
