Description

Travel isn’t just for the rich. I teach people how to supercharge their credit card points so they can pay for entire family vacations every year. 


I've  been redeeming miles and points to pay for travel for over a decade. Points have taken our family around the world. But one thing sets me apart -- our family flies economy because business class isn't worth the extra effort for us. 


But this podcast isn't about me and where I've been -- it's about you and your goals. 


I focus on "normal"  and streamlined credit card points strategies. This is about how to earn points the easiest way you can and redeem them easily, too. 


Season 1 covers common mistakes and myths and then will do a deep dive into Chase Ultimate Rewards points.
