Have you ever wondered how some people travel so much and where’d they get the money to do so? One year they’re in Tokyo and the next in Sydney. You wish you could travel like them but you don’t have the money. If this is you, and this was us, you’re probably thinking you have to break the bank to go anywhere. Well that’s not the case, so let us introduce you to the wonderful world of travel rewards points. In this video you will learn about travel points, what to do with them, and how to get them.
Travel rewards credit cards are credit cards that earn points/miles whenever you make purchases. These cards can help you earn free trips to different parts of the world just for using them on everyday expenses. We like the idea that if you can make a living, you can earn free travel.
There are several types of travel rewards credit cards but they all work in similar ways. After you apply and receive your travel credit card, you have a sign-up bonus. The sign-up bonus is an offer to earn a huge amount of points within the first few months of obtaining your card. The sign-up bonus and time given to obtain those points differs from card to card.
After the sign-up bonus, you can still earn points but at a slower pace. Travel credit cards offer point per dollar purchases but they also have categories that earn you more points. Each credit card has their own categories in which they earn more points, so the choice is up to you on how you expect to use your card.
There are also shopping portals where you log on and get linked to top online retailers like Nike, Groupon and Macy’s where you can earn extra points.
