About Miles For Places

My wife and I have been pretty fortunate over the last few years to be able to travel to various places around the world. Many people have asked me how we were able to do it as grad students (my wife has since graduated and become a full time teacher) and some assume I have some wealth squirreled away (smh). In a nutshell, the answer is credit card points, airline miles, hotel points, and creative ways into obtaining travel gift cards that can be used towards a vacation. This a topic that has been talked about ad nauseam among multiple blogs and websites. The overall goal of this site is to help you travel using the least amount of cash possible and to get the best value for the miles you may have accrued. I’ll also add must see places for various destinations we have visited, reviews of travel products, airlines, airline lounges, hotels, credit card reviews, and occasional videos that demonstrate how to transfer points from Chase or American Express into a frequent flier program. If anything I may have posted ends up helping you, I would really appreciate if you shared this site with friends and family. For full disclosure, I don’t have any financial relationships with anything I review. Were that to change in the future, I’d make that pretty clear. If you have any questions with regards to a particular post, leave a comment and I’ll get back to you as soon as possible. Thanks for reading.
