I recently flew business class from San Francisco to Europe and stayed at 4 & 5 star hotels for 13 nights. That flight and hotel stays cost me less than $450. I didn't use any voodoo magic. I don't have elite status with any airlines or hotels. I'm you. I'm just a regular joe with limited disposable income who one day decided this flying economy thing sucks. With no prospects of finding someone wealthy and dumb enough to pay for my luxury vacations I decided to set out to find ways to travel like a king. Over the last few years I have learned how to get those valuable points for traveling. Fly more you say? Nope. Flying is probably one of the worst ways to earn points. There are much better and simple ways. Credit card bonuses, leveraging off your shopping and discounted gift cards are just a few example. Learn to search for hotels and flights intelligently and make your booking better. I'll show you how to turn a bad travel situation into a profitable one. I'll show you ways of avoiding bad luck and hopefully not get dragged through a plane....There is more to this than just save more money or accessing better products. I will give you a glimpse at how I think when I look for the first class booty. There is no rocket science here. It's all there for your taking. Additionally, I'll give you practical information like how to avoid fees when getting money or spending money. And for the do it yourself road warriors I have plenty of tips to offer on getting around town or something as simple as how the heck do I get out of the airport and into town. And finally, being a super nerd with a deep background in software I'll pass some of my tech skills to you. All this in a plain English and easy to digest book. Enjoy!
