My passion (and obsession!) for travel deals and points started over ten years ago the day I graduated college and took a job at a top consulting firm. ‘d spend every Monday through Thursday hotel hoping and embarking on long plane rides just to earn the extra points and miles. Since I was traveling all the time I decided that I was really going to take advantage of the points and miles game. I would wake up at 4am on Monday mornings saying to myself, this is worth it – I am going to go on the best honeymoon ever!!! And…. I did! Plus a lot more!
My love for travel, however, started when I was young as I fortunately had the opportunity to travel quite often with my family. I started managing my families frequent flier accounts at a young age and loved how we were able to fly free most of the time. As a family, we also made sure to get “bumped” as much as possible! I loved the crazy travel adventures with my family and the deals that went along with it!
So who am I?! I am a 30-something mommy to two of the most amazing kids! I am married to Mr. Deals who sometimes thinks I am absolutely deal crazy – although he sure does love his free trips and help when he is in a travel bind! I am so excited to share the love of travel with my kids and husband and give them experiences that they would not otherwise get without my “deal knowledge”. My love and experience with travel, deals, and my B.A. in Finance has allowed me serve as a deal, points/miles, and credit card guru!
I’m thrilled to be able to share with you my experiences and deal knowledge and hope that you are able to learn a thing or two along the way!
Also, if you have any tips, tricks, deals of your own, or success stories, feel free to contact me and I will post them to the site. Also, please comment on the blog, follow me on Twitter, follow me on Facebook, and travel free!
