Welcome, friend! Let me tell you a little bit about myself. I’m a stay-at-home mom who loves to travel. Admit it, you thought a guy was in charge of this blog, right? Spoiler alert! This hobby consists of 99% males, but I’m hoping to change that.
My family doesn’t have a lot of money, so I have to find other ways to afford being able to explore the world. Signing up for credit card bonuses has given us that opportunity. This hobby is not rocket science, but does involve a certain amount of planning to get approved for credit cards successfully time after time. If you have no clue what I’m talking about (which is OK), start by reading my Beginner’s guide page. It sounds too good to be true, but it is true!
As with everything in my life, I try to be honest in how I go about this venture. The banks don’t owe me anything, and I’m extremely grateful for all the travel my family gets to enjoy as a result of this hobby.
The blog focuses on how to maximize your points and miles, but I also write about good family travel deals and how to save money in general. I used to work as a tax professional, so I have a pretty good grasp on numbers and finance.
The point (pun intended) is not to brag, but rather help other middle-class families create amazing memories while spending little out-of-pocket. Even if switching credit cards constantly isn’t your thing, I hope you can find some valuable info here anyway. Oh, almost forgot… I am a little wacky. But I hope you join me on this adventure anyway!
Meet my regular contributor
Hi–My name is Nancy and I am a contributing writer for Miles For Family. I live in the suburbs of Dallas with my husband and our three kids. I’m a huge fan of family travel, but my favorite part is researching and planning vacations! I might be a little obsessed with all things Disney.
Most of our family trips have been to Disney parks and on Disney Cruise Line, but as my kids get older we are branching out to new destinations. I stumbled upon this miles and points hobby a few years ago, and it has provided me with a means to go on many more trips than I would have been able to afford otherwise. I enjoy writing trip reports and am honored to contribute posts to Miles For Family.
