  • Tips to get frequent flyer miles daily

    1.  Sign up for credit cards that award you miles or points for your purchases

    2.  Pay your monthly bills like utility, rent, phone, etc. using your miles credit card

    3.  Pay one time bills like taxes with your miles credit card

    We would all like to earn more free travel, but what should you do to get the necessary miles sooner?  How much do you spend on utilities, groceries and bills every month?  Hundreds, maybe thousands, right?  If you earn thousands of points with you every day spendings, in 12 months you can get enough bonuses for a free flight, maybe even free hotel!  You pay with your credit card at the gas station or in any kind of store, but did ever consider paying a phone bill or any bill for that matter the same way ?  Check your monthly banking statement and reassigned to your card as many of the purchases as you can.  Even rent could be paid with a credit card, if you live in a home managed by a company accepting credit cards.  This can all help you get a free vacation every year!  You can even pay government taxes with a credit card, and as unhappy an event as that is, at least it contributes in your earning of a free trip.

    Check the below cards and the huge account opening bonuses that they all have, pick one you would pay your bills with, pick one and then transform your phone, electricity and water bills into free travel.
