About Us

A mother-daughter duo who love to travel the world for nearly free, thanks to credit card points and miles.

Learning how to leverage credit card points and miles has allowed us to have amazing travel experiences that we never imagined were possible. Using points and miles, we’ve enjoyed amazing trips to Hawaii, Greece, London, Mexico, Italy, Thailand, Turkey, and more--all for pennies on the dollar.

We’ve redeemed over 5 million points for over $200,000 worth of travel, and we still have millions of points to use. These points are earned by opening credit cards for their amazing welcome offers and by using credit cards for all our everyday purchases. We do all of this while maintaining an 800+ credit score and not paying a cent in interest!

Our Story

In the past, Pam was an extreme couponer. When she learned about travel hacking, she traded free shampoo for business class flights. She’s a retired nurse, an amazing grandma to 21 grandkids, and a patient and enthusiastic travel-hacking teacher.

Alex is a mom to four cute boys. When she’s not planning her next getaway you’ll find her at the local basketball court or soccer field, cheering on her boys. Alex loves taking vacations with her husband, meeting up for girls-only getaways, and making memories with her kids at family-friendly destinations.

We started Travel Hacking Mom with one goal in mind--to teach others how to travel for free or nearly free, just like us! We’re proof that you don’t need millions of dollars to see the world. You just need to learn how credit card points and miles work, and we’re here to help!

begin your travel hacking journey!
