How do I travel as much as I do without busting our family’s budget? Frequent flyer miles and points of course! One of the major tools for acquiring these points is credit cards: signup bonuses, category bonuses, and more are a great way to build your frequent flyer stockpile to cash in for discounted travel.
I know some of my readers are incredibly advanced at playing the miles and points game. For most families, however, the travel rewards credit card hobby is a totally opaque and confusing process. Since the hobby involves using credit cards, it is also fraught with real financial risk.
Although I don’t blog a lot about credit cards and miles and points strategies on Trips With Tykes, these are topics that I often tackle over on TravelingMom.com, where I blog as Frequent Flyer Traveling Mom. For traveling families who don’t have the time or patience to juggle a dozen credit cards or chase the latest daily travel deal, it is important to develop a simple credit card strategy that best maximizes your travel rewards.
