These are some of the most useful resources that we use for traveling. Some of the links may provide us with a small reward if you use their services. We only promote products and services that we actually use ourselves. If you use our links, THANK YOU, it helps us grow! If you don't feel comfortable using our links that's ok too.

Credit Sesame

Find out if you have a high enough credit score to safely start travel hacking. It's free, quick, and will continually monitor your credit. A score of 700 or above should be your goal.


Search for flights, hotels and cars with ease. Also, set up alerts to get the best deals. They have advanced features like searching for flights to multiple airports and variable dates.

Priority Pass

When you have a layover, do it in style. There are lounges in most airports that offer space, comfortable seating, tv's, and complimentary food & drinks. Priority Pass gives you access to these lounges.

FEATURED CREDIT CARD OFFERS (I currently have all 3)

In almost every situation, we find Chase Ultimate Rewards points to be the best option.  They give  you the flexibility to use them in a wide variety of ways.  You can spend them directly with Chase for travel, shopping and gift cards or you can use them to get way more bang for your buck (point).  By transferring your Chase points directly into hotel or airline points partners, you can get HUGE rewards.  I've regularly used the points from one credit card bonus to earn far more than $1000 in travel value.  It's pretty incredible how much value banks are willing to give you, just to be their customer!
