Stockpile Knowledge and Earnings with Credit Card Points & Miles


With COVID on the rise, some people are more reluctant to travel until things calm down a bit.

Take this time to learn all you can about credit card miles and points so you can earn a lot of them! This will make it so much easier to plan fun trips when you feel like you want to travel again!


Stockpile Knowledge

We hear from so many of you that feel overwhelmed with all the terms, all the credit cards and, all the information that is presented. We get it. We used to feel that way too. It’s kind of like that old saying, “How do you eat an elephant?” One bite at a time.

Make a plan on how you are going to learn all about the points and miles game. Here are some ideas:

Stockpile Earnings

We hear from so many people who suddenly want to use points and miles for a trip they want to go on in two months. Sadly that is probably not going to happen. You need time to earn those points, get them in your account, and then find and book your travel. That is why we encourage people to get a stockpile of points and miles so you have options whenever you feel like you want to travel again.

Our favorite story is when we were looking out at the snow at Alex’s one day and decided we wanted to go to Maui. Thanks to our stockpiles, we were there 10 days later!

Just because you may not be traveling right now, especially since summer is over, now is the time to keep applying for cards, stashing those points, and be ready for travel later. Start earning towards your travels for next summer. Putting your spending on one card all the time is the slow way to earn points. Effective, but slow. Ideally, you want to apply for a few credit cards a year. That is the way to really bump up your stockpile and travel for nearly free more often! It is through those high bonus signups, that you quickly, and most effectively, earn credit card points and miles.

Bottom Line

You may not want to travel much this winter due to the virus or due to having to work. Now is an excellent time to stockpile your knowledge and earnings in the points and miles game. Take advantage of slow times to do more earning and prepare for when you are ready to travel more.
