Credit card sign up and spending bonuses are a big part of my strategy to earn and burn points and miles. In 2011, credit cards and travel helped us earn a little over 857,000 points and miles and burn through a little over 1,734,000 points and miles for trips to destinations we could not have otherwise afforded. Below are some credit card offers that may help towards a “dream award” vacation. Please let me know if you don’t see a great offer listed here by emailing me at theweeklyflyer@gmail.com. Appreciate your help to share the best available offers.
