Using Airline Miles, Hotel Points, Etc. For Personal Travel (1)

Hello World!

How many of you are like me (and the HH) and simply L O V E to travel?  How many of you must travel for work, especially if that travel requires hotels, rental cars, flights, and airport parking?  If I have just described some of the expenses you incur when traveling for work, even if the company reimburses you, are you maximizing the potential you have from this work requirement?  If not, or if you are not sure, read on, dear friend.

My husband’s job, which he dearly loves, requires that he travel almost every week.  Smart man that he is, he signs up for all of the frequent traveler accounts, and then we enjoy the perks.  For as long as he and I have been together, I can count the number of times we have paid for airline tickets (except for the taxes on otherwise free flights) on one hand! Most of those purchased were to get the family to Virginia for our youngest son’s wedding.

If you travel and have not signed up for the reward programs, go do that now, before another flight or another hotel stay.  If you did sign up for such programs, but you have not used your benefits and perhaps have no idea what is available to you, get into your accounts now and look at what you have earned. That is your homework for today.

You can’t take advantage of all of the freebies that could be coming your way if you don’t have these rewards accounts set up, and you can’t plot and plan to use wisely what you have earned if you do not know what you have and how it can work with what you want.

Tomorrow, I will walk you through the ways in which you can “cash in” on your reward points.

Have a blessed and happy day!
