  • Chase Sapphire Preferred Credit Card: get 55,000 points (worth at least $687.5) after spending $4,000 in the first 90 days.  Pro tip: make sure you add an authorized user to get the extra 5,000 points.  The authorized user card will come to you in the mail and you can just retain it.
  • Barclaycard Arrival Plus Credit Card: get 40,000 points (worth $400) after spending $3,000 in the first 90 days.  Pro tip: this is the only card you can use purchase to a plane ticket with cash immediately and not have to wait to use the sign up bonus until after you reach the minimum spending requirements, although you do need to credit your new account the sign up bonus points in the form of a statement credit within 180 days of purchasing the plane ticket.


  • Book lodging with Airbnb and we both each get $20
  • When booking flights internationally, make sure to search Skyscanner before you buy.  I have often seen them do a better job with finding international budget airlines.
  • A second option for booking international flights that many people don't think about is Vayama.  I have purchased international tickets from them before in the past.
