Use Airline Shopping Portals For Cheap Flight Tickets

Untitled design(14)Do you struggle with the cost of flights and wonder if there are better ways to earn cheap flight tickets? This post will show you how you can leverage your every day spending to lower the cost of your airline ticket or even earn a free rewards flight!

I’ve always had a passion for travel, but like most people I talk to these days the cost of airline tickets prevented me from traveling as much as I wanted. Then I discovered there are many lucrative ways to earn frequent flyer miles on the ground. Now I earn frequent flyer miles every single day!

 

How Do I Earn Frequent Flyer Miles Without Flying?

There are several ways to earn frequent flyer miles without flying. I have leveraged all of them to earn over 400,000 frequent flyer miles and points so far this year, and so can you. One of the most lucrative is to use airline shopping portals to earn cheap flight tickets or free rewards flights.

Find Your Perfect Travel Rewards Card

Wondering how you can find your perfect travel rewards card? If you’d like a great travel rewards card but don’t know which one to choose, this article is for you! It helps you choose which card you should use, based on the type of travel you do.

How to Find the Best Travel Rewards Credit Card for You

http://www.dailyfinance.com/2015/06/23/how-to-find-best-travel-rewards-credit-card/

Choosing a travel rewards credit card can be overwhelming.

Every week, American consumers receive millions of pieces of direct mail from credit card issuers offering large sign-on bonuses and fast ways to travel for free.

If you search for the best travel card on Google, you will be presented with millions of results. It can be very difficult to find the best card.

Most credit card comparison tools are either blog posts or static lists of credit cards. One of the oldest in the market is CreditCards.com, which has a page dedicated to travel and airline credit cards. The top result is the Capital One Venture Rewards Credit Card.

Is Capital One Venture the best card for everyone? As my research reveals, it depends upon your situation. I used the customizable tool at MileCards.com to review three different scenarios, and I received three different recommendations. Now more than ever personalized recommendations are important to earn the best rewards.

Scenario 1: The Frequent Flier

Bob flies United Airlines all the time for business. He is earning 50,000 miles every year from business travel and wants to top up those miles with a credit card. He spends about $3,000 each month on his personal credit card and about $800 of that is in restaurants.

Based upon Bob’s information, the recommendation was the Chase Sapphire Preferred Card. The card allows you to earn 2 points for every $1 you earn on dining, and you can transfer the Sapphire points directly to United Airlines. Including the first year bonus, Bob would earn 91,600 points in the first 12 months. Capital One Venture doesn’t allow you to transfer points to existing frequent flier programs, and would not have been the best option for Bob.

Scenario 2: The Infrequent Flier With Hawaii Dreams

Sarah never flies. A recent graduate, she wants to visit Hawaii soon, but only if she can get a free flight. And she doesn’t want a card with an Annual Fee. She spends about $1,000 a month, and most of it is spent on groceries and gas.

How To Find Amazing Discount Luxury Hotel Deals

Untitled-design-300x300If you’d like to find amazing discount luxury hotel deals, I have a great tactic for you. You can get ridiculously low prices if you know how to use Priceline correctly. Priceline offers a “Name Your Own Price” feature for hotel reservations. With this feature you can bid for a hotel room.  If Priceline accepts your bid, you stay at the hotel for the price you named. You don’t get to choose a specific hotel, only the general geographic area and the star rating. You will be given the name of the specific hotel only after you win the bid and your credit card has been charged. There are no refunds and no changes available, but if you win the bid you get incredible savings.

The catch is that Priceline only allows one bid every 24 hours. If you bid too low you have to wait a day until you can bid again. But you can beat Priceline because you are reading this blog and have access to my secrets! I regularly get over 30 free rebids at major cities with this tactic! Just follow the below steps for the best way to beat Priceline.

Step 1: Check out this humorous video by a reporter in Seattle on how to beat Priceline at its own game. (The following steps will be much easier to understand if you have a basic understanding of the strategy outlined in the video. Spoiler alert: The below steps are going to allow 95% of the calculations outlined in the video to be done for you automatically.)

Step 2: Want a site that walks you through all the steps in the video automatically? How about having a service that shows you the lowest, most recently accepted Priceline bid in the area you want to stay? Hop over to Bidding Traveler.

Step 3: Enter the location, check-in and check-out dates that you need for your hotel reservation and click “Just Priceline bidding”.

Step 4: Look at the map display of the city zones. Select all the zones you are willing to stay in, the more the better.

Step 5: Look at the star ratings and select the highest hotel star rating that you want to stay in.

Step 6: Analyze the list of recently rejected bids and recently accepted bids. Using that analysis and the recommended lowball offer and final offer from Bidding Traveler, enter your lowball and final offer amounts and click “Continue With Manual Bidding. Pay specific attention to the dates. Often times the recently rejected bids will be closer to your reservation dates than the recently approved. Depending on your situation you may have to bid higher than the final recommendation quoted by the bidding traveler.

Step 7: Set Your Bidding Strategy by setting the number of bids to the maximum amount possible. Now that The Bidding Traveler has done its work and exposed the loopholes in Priceline’s bidding system, you can certainly bid more than once!

Step 8: Scroll to the bottom of the page and hit continue. You will see Priceline’s website. (If you do not have an account with Priceline, make sure you get one and put in your billing information as it makes rebidding much quicker.)

Step 9: Follow the directions spelled out for you by The Bidding Traveler at the top of the webpage. The Bidding Traveler will walk you through step by step, ensuring you maximize the number of times you can bid by exposing the loophole in the Priceline system!

Step 10: Receive your reservation from the hotel and enjoy the massive amount of savings you just realized!

I have repeatedly used this strategy to save hundreds of dollars and find amazing discount luxury hotel deals. While it does take a little bit more effort to book your hotel this way, the savings are well worth it.
