How to Save Flight Tickets by Credit Card
I talked about free travel in this post: Dummy Simple to Make Free Travel by Credit Card: Hotel. Today I am telling you about the free airplane ticket.
First I want you to look at this picture, which was the United Airline ticket I booked from my parent last December from Tokyo to Houston. At that time, the cash price was $2000 per person, damn expensive! But using airline miles, how much did I spend?
Only 77000 United miles plus $98.34!! This means I was using 77000 miles to save $4000!!
But you may ask, how do you get tons of United miles? The answer is United credit card!
Currently, this card is offering 70,000 miles! Wow! it is one of the best offers in history!
You will also get 2 miles per dollar for spending on the United airline, Dining, and Hotel stay. Also, you will get your first checked bag free if you and one companion take the United Airline flight on the same reservation.
For the cost, it does have a $95 annual fee, but the sweet spot is, that the fee for the first year will be waived!
I have written a series regarding credit cards:
Hope this series could help you understand the credit card detail.
