I’m just a savvy Mom of 2 travel-loving kids and 1 patient husband. We live to travel to new destinations using the travel hacking methods I’ve spent over 5 years perfecting. I’ve traveled to over 100 cities on 3 different continents using travel hacks, millions of credit card points and rewards. I love the discovery of a new destination, the people you meet along the way, making memories with my family and of course, chasing the “sunny skies”.
It is my mission to teach and coach our followers, so they too can use their everyday spending to earn nearly free flights, luxury hotel stays and much more! Travel hacking truly makes travel so much more affordable.
Come along with me and learn my travel hacks, reward points, favorite credit cards, suite upgrades, how to double-dip, etc. I want to help you make dream travel a reality.
