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!
See! I told you it was free..
I have an article that goes more in-depth about ways to accumulate travel reward miles and you can read that here. For this trip I have slowly accrued Chase Reward Points by getting the 80,000 sign up bonus points from the Chase Ink Business Card and 50,000 points from the personal Chase Sapphire card.
This created a nice little war chest of miles that I used on this trip. I still have a decent amount left that I should be able to use to pay for, or come close to, my next international trip!
If you have concerns about credit card hacking let’s answer some concerns you may have?
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.
