Point Earning Credit Cards and their sign up and spending bonuses are a big part of my strategy to earn and burn points and miles. In one year, 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 of your own. Please let me know if you don’t see a great offer listed here by emailing me at theweeklyflyer@gmail.com. We appreciate your help to share the best available offers. You don’t have to use our links but, we are certainly appreciative if you do to help support our efforts on our blog. Thank you!
