Hi Travel Junkies,
Last month I shared an amazing opportunity to earn 100,000 American Airlines (AA) miles just by opening a credit card and checking account and jumping through a couple of small hoops.
These types of opportunities are incredibly lucrative and a no-brainer for any points/miles enthusiast. Certainly anyone who is a fan of cheap travel would jump at this, right?
In fact, I was downright shocked at the lack of attention that this particular strategy seemed to get. Even my most loyal readers were lukewarm about the opportunity.
And after looking through the results of our latest reader survey I now know why.
Because nobody gets excited about earning “miles”! After all, “miles” taken out of context are just a number on a computer screen.
It’s the cheap travel that you are really after.
And the connection between “X number of miles” and “cheap travel” is not always an easy one to make. Especially for those of you who are new to this game.
So today I am going to provide a more concrete example of why this particular opportunity is so great. One that you could take advantage of right away if you so choose.
I just booked a trip to spend a long weekend in Spain with my wife this coming January.
It’ll be a short one, just a couple days in Barcelona followed by a couple days in Madrid. Which is fine by me. Long weekends in Europe are one of my favorite trips anyway.
(Especially when the average temperature is 30 degrees warmer than it is in the Midwest)
