Yesterday I wrote about our upcoming trips with credit card rewards, and how we used points and miles to pay for the majority of our travels. Today I’m simply picking up where I left off. And that, my friends, will be in one of my favorite places on Earth- New Orleans, Louisiana. [Read more...]
Good morning, party people! Happy Monday!
I just got done planning out the details of my August budget, and it’s…ummmm…..slightly on the pricey side. That’s because some of the trips we’ve been planning are coming up this month and, as we all know, travel ain’t cheap. [Read more...]

Even though I write plenty about credit card rewards over at Frugal Travel Guy, I like to write about it on my home turf from time to time. I guess it’s partly because I get so many personal emails and questions from people wondering which rewards they should pursue and which deals are H-O-T.

The truth is, credit card rewards happen to be my hobby. In a lot of ways, I’m similar to someone who watches sports incessantly, the only difference being that credit card rewards actually have a point. Yeah, I went there. Unlike rooting for your favorite team every Thursday, Saturday, Sunday, and Monday night with a jersey on and hot wing sauce dripping down your chin, an obsession with credit card rewards can be lucrative, and even life-changing. Want to know why I love credit card rewards so much? Here’s why: [Read more...]
