WCI #209: Travel Hacking with Physician on Fire

Update: 2021-05-061


For FIRE week on the White Coat Investor podcast, we have a guest host, Physician on Fire , discussing travel hacking and answering listener questions. You can earn free travel and he shows you how with regular spending and credit card welcome bonuses. Now credit cards are for convenience and only use them if you are disciplined enough to pay them off every month. Use autopay for all your cards and make sure you are getting at least 1.5% to 2% back on your everyday purchases. If you’re willing to pick up a new card a couple of times a year, and maybe cancel a card or two if you don’t think a card is worth the annual fee, you can get a LOT more bang for your buck by taking advantage of welcome bonuses. Let Leif show you how in this episode.

He also answers many questions about bonds and their role in your portfolio, as well as maximizing the 199A deduction, turnover rates in index funds, and understanding your taxes on side income.
