We are Patti and Matilda. Sisters. Best friends. Travel buddies.
A college backpacking trip to Europe began our love of travel. Ten years and two full-time jobs have not kept us from continuing our adventures.
Although we have been traveling for over a decade, we only recently realized how easy it is to earn miles and points by signing up for credit cards, shopping online, spending strategically and other methods. In less than 3 years, we earned enough miles (without flying) for over a dozen international first and business class flights. You don’t even have to travel all the time to benefit. We both work so we can only travel a few times a year – but when we do, it is usually almost free and in first or business class.
Our goal is to break down how anyone can earn miles and points with relatively little effort. We focus on the easiest and most lucrative ways so even our busiest readers can benefit. We had traveled to 30+ countries and 7 continents before discovering how to travel in more comfort for less money and still cringe at all the missed opportunities.
In addition to sharing easy ways to maximize your points and miles earning, we also share details and tips about our past and future travels. Our travel style ranges from budget to luxury, well-trodden to off-the-beaten-path and everything in between. Basically, it just depends on the destination. Matilda also recently had a baby so she will also be writing about family travel.
We look forward to sharing our love of travel with you!
