I suppose one could call that a "travel hack," but I would prefer to think of it as a starting point. Basically everyone that wants to travel for free should begin by picking a destination, a carrier and signing up for their rewards card for the free miles. I was hoping for some advice on racking up miles AFTER getting the initial boost, or some super secret method of meeting the minimum spending requirements, or at least a script for getting out of paying yearly fees. Each of those tips are reduced to one or two paragraphs that basically give you a concept but no real direction.
I would love to see some content added covering topics like miles runs, status bumps, obtaining free upgrades, or maximizing miles from spending. Otherwise this is just a really long tutorial about getting a bunch of credit cards.
The "valuable" minimum spend tips:
- Make your mom an authorized user, ask her to spend like normal on your CC, then give you a check.
- Go to restaurants with friends. Have them pay you back in cash
- If necessary, eat the cost of paying your bills with a credit card. "It's worth it, seriously!"
The book doesn't provide enough useful suggestions about particular cards to look out for. Instead, it's more about setting your goals beforehand and then carefully deciding on cards. The book provides a decent enough job of warning people not to overspend and how to not destroy your credit, but I feel like I could've written the same content, and I've only been doing this for a few months. The book does offer a free Udemy course, but given the material in the book, I probably wouldn't waste my time.
So if you want a book that gives high-fives to a circle of friends and cheers you on for opening credit cards responsibly, buy this book. Otherwise, move along. There are better resources out there.
The author thinks he'll charge $10 for this one day, but in my opinion this book would probably have difficulty selling many copies at $0.99. It's more useful to raise awareness to get people reading particular travel hacking blogs.
Pascal has done a brilliant job of explaining the ins and outs in a way that is easy to follow along with.
Additionally he has provided resources to help you actually follow through so that you don't just stop without an idea of what to do next. Very eye opening and plenty of tips that would take a lot of trial and error to learn on your own.
Those tips will save you a lot of money and miles on your journey.
And if you are like me, and you like proof, there is plenty of that in this book as well.
Thanks, Pascal for sharing :D
I have been always interested in Tavel Hacking and was always surfing through the millions of articles available on the subject online, but after reading them I was always left with more doubts about the next step. I was very pleasantly surprised when in this book I found all the information one needs to get started in a well organized and logical matter.
I'm already on the way to collecting the 40K points that I need to score a free flight to DC from Hamburg, Germany where I currently live.
100% recommendation from me!
