Advanced Strategies for Earning Rewards Points

posted by May 30, 2014

Advanced Earning StrategiesThere are many well-known ways to earn airline rewards points, like using your credit card at certain restaurants, staying at particular hotels, and shopping at specific online websites, but if you’ve outgrown these basic strategies, it may be time for you to look into more advanced earning methods.

One example of an expert technique offered by The Frugal Travel Guy is to purchase a gift card at a retailer offering a high or bonus amount of reward points and then to use the gift card to buy whatever item you actually want to buy at a different retailer. He explains that instead of just paying for a coffee at Starbucks with his credit card, he would go to Staples and buy a Starbucks gift card with his Ink Bold card before heading over to Starbucks to use the gift card on the coffee. This way, he wound up earning 5 points per dollar instead of the 1 that he would’ve earned had he just paid with his credit card at Starbucks.

If you have the time to develop and execute advanced strategies like this one, then you have the ability to earn many times more reward points than you currently are. If you would like to get a jump start on earning extra by buying reward points or if you have unused points that you’d like to sell, contact us today!
