It, of course, got me thinking about how I might get in on that, especially since my current travel stash of rewards is nice, but small, and the family's income is currently going to tuition and bills. Here are a couple of websites that gave me some more information on how people go about hacking the system:
- Flyertalk - "interactive community that provides up-to-date information on travel-related loyalty reward programs"; I mostly found the site overwhelming but following them on Twitter has been interesting so far
- One Mile at a Time - this blog has advice on a little bit of everything and is organized by airline, I find the posts interesting and helpful
- Travel Hacking Cartel - this pay for service site somehow gives you ideas and/or access to getting frequent flier miles without flying; not much for free content but seems like a good and lazy way to get started
- Travel Hacking Blog - this gives some quick tips on ideas on how to get started and things to consider when on the road
Then I came across this article today which talked about "cards that every traveler should consider." I am going to research their list further but noticed that they left off the Capital One Venture card. I think travel hacking may be going mainstream, if the abundance of all these articles and information is any indication of it's growing popularity. How about you? Ever done anything you would consider travel hacking before? Thanks for stopping by!
