Hi there, I’m Jon and today we are going to talk about getting discounts for travel.
Ill tell you a short story. A few years back , My father in law had never seen New York before and it was always his lifetime dream to see NYC.
Knowing the costs and since im an avid traveler anyway, I figured a companion pass might be a good idea.
Knowing that I needed to do some travel what I did was I signed up for a Southwest Rewards card.
They has a promo going, so It give me a cool 50,000 points. Then I thought about how can I get to 110k points.
So Im like well I do have a business, so I signed up for a Business Southwest Rewards card. POW!
This gave me another 50,000 points.
With only a mere 10,000 points now needed for the companion pass I charged anything and everything that I would have paid anyway to my credit card like mortgage, insurance, gas bill.
After doing this, I was able to get enough points for the Pass. This allowed me get the companion pass and my partner traveled basically free for over a year.
Imagine paying basically half the cost of flights for yourself and partner to travel for over a year! Pretty good huh?
To hear some great tips on the best ways to travel for cheap, Check out this cool guide.
I know many of you even myself have gotten a discount for travel. One of the main things I used to do was deal with delta buddy pass tickets. Getting those could get you on the plane, but a sold out flight could definitely cause a delay in some situations.
I learned about a new guide for travel hacking that can always save you money when booking tickets. Its cheap, Only a few bucks and has a money back guarantee.
