Travel Freely: The Best Tool For Credit Card Organization


My mom and I still don’t understand why more people, especially our friends, don’t travel hack. Who doesn’t want to travel? Especially for almost free? One of the comments we get the most is, “I could never keep it all organized”! Is that something you struggle with too? Let us introduce you to your new best friend – Travel Freely – the site and mobile app that makes travel hacking a breeze! Trust me, I used to have a spreadsheet and this is 1000% better and easier! We absolutely love Travel Freely and think it is a must for any and all travel hackers! Oh, and did I mention that it’s FREE?!

The main feature that Travel Freely offers is a way to track all of your credit cards. Here is what they keep track of:

  • The name of your card (they track all types of credit cards, not just travel-related)
  • The date your account was opened
  • The signup bonus deadline. Travel Freely will remind you when you are getting close to that minimum spend deadline. Such a great feature!
  • Account status
  • Annual fee due dates. You’ll get a reminder before an annual fee hits. This is very helpful as it gives you time to figure out if you are going to keep, cancel, or downgrade that card.
  • Your Chase 5/24 status and when you will be eligible to apply for Chase cards again. This is one of our favorite features!
  • Recommends cards for you based on what you already have through their Card Genie.


Below, you can see the “my cards” page. Here it will tell me if I have any annual fees due in the next 45 days, bonus deadlines in the next 30 days, 5/24 count, and when I am ready for a new card. It also lists all my cards as well. You will notice that both my and Mitch’s cards are listed. Travel Freely works great for travel hacking in 2-player mode!

Not only does Travel Freely help you stay organized, but they also recommend credit cards through their Card Genie. The Card Genie takes into account the cards you already have and your Chase 5/24 count to recommend cards you qualify for. You can filter the results to see recommendations based on the bank, rewards program, fees, and more! For example, if you want an airline card, you could filter the results to show you all the best current airline cards. There are rules out there from the various credit card issuers, and sometimes it can be tricky to keep track of them. The Card Genie is great because it knows all the rules and knows what you are eligible to apply for.

Travel Freely also has a mobile app that is great! It makes it so easy to quickly check out my cards, 5/24 status, and see any annual fees that are coming up. I spend most of my time on my phone vs. the computer, so having the mobile app has been so nice!


Steps to Get Organized with Travel Freely

  1. Sign up! It is quick and easy!
