I’m a life-long Southerner who has a day job in IT to fund two of my favorite things: travel and skiing. Despite having had a points-earning credit card for over 20 years, I finally jumped into the points/miles game in a bigger way in 2012 and was able to see results faster than I thought possible. At first my points earning was geared toward a big trip I’m planning in 2015. I thought I’d have to use the entire time between 2012 and late 2014 (when I’d book my trip) to earn enough miles and points. I was pleasantly surprised at how quickly I achieved my goals! In the meantime I’ll take two trips to Europe this year (2014) in premium cabins thanks to what I learned on other blogs.
Yes, those other bloggers have been around much longer than I have but I’m happy to coach newbies through the process in a private setting. Be sure to email me if you have questions!
