Chase Sapphire Preferred Credit Card – Taking advantage of credit cards that offer bonus points have saved us over $3,000 on airline tickets! The card we recommend is Chase Sapphire Preferred. All you have to do is spend $4,000 in purchases in the first 3 months from the date you open your account. For us, we got started on working towards this minimum spend amount before we left for our trip. We put expenses we have anyway, such as groceries, on the card and then paid it off in full from our checking account when each monthly bill was due. This could be a great way for you to cover the cost of your flight(s) partially, if not completely, for future trips! If you apply for the card through this link (and your application is accepted), you’ll receive an offer for 80,000 bonus points if you meet the minimum spend criteria ($4,000 in charges to the card within the first 3 months of opening your account).

Booking – If you reserve an accommodation through Booking with this link, you’ll get $20 credited to your account once you stay!
