Thanks for stopping by! Something I wanted to mention: English is my second language, so please keep that in mind. Arguably, I am starting at the worst possible time. The market is saturated, people hate bloggers for killing the deals, and my recurring theme is “credit card bonuses”. Basically, my mileage runs are credit card apps. Yawn. And we travel occasionally. I mean, can it get any worse?
Yet, I still feel that there are people to be reached in this particular hobby. Just like mr. Leff and mr. Ingersoll, I was churning cards before it was cool. But talking to my friends and other middle class families, I realized, most are still not aware of what they are missing out on. Using credit card bonuses as a tool, I will blog on achieving travel goals, that are realistic for people , like myself. That means mostly economy flights and travel style which I describe as “good value”, rather than budget.
However, I don’t want to be a one trick pony. Which is why this site will feature money saving advice and family travel deals. The posts will mention things that pertain to my situation, so when there is a mileage bonus for transferring 50000 dollars to a brokerage firm, you will not see it listed here. When I run out of things to say I will close up shop and move on. It might be next month or next year, I have no idea.
For those not coming back (and that’s most), read my previous post, that’s all I am asking. Please, keep supporting Daraius’ site to thank him for all the research he makes, to keep everyone in the loop. I consider his blog the Target store of blogs in this industry: unpretentious, good quality, wide appeal, a little bit for everyone. Sorry, Daraius, if instead you think of it as Nordstrom! That would have to be “View from the wing”, right? And, while we are on the subject, I would probably compare “Mommypoints” to Macy’s. “One mile at a time”, hmm, Victoria’s Secret perhaps? And all of them are excellent stores for what they offer!
Last thing: as nice as miles and points are, in the grand scheme of things they don’t really matter that much.
