How To Upgrade Your Travel With Upgraded Points

One of the most frequent questions I receive is “how do you afford to travel so much?”  While I save most of my money for travel, one of the biggest ways I afford to travel often is by booking travel through miles and points I’ve accrued via travel rewards credit cards and hotel and airline loyalty programs. 

Upgraded Points is a FREE website launched in 2016 with a mission to show travelers the real value of points and miles with insider strategies to maximize rewards. 

What is Upgraded Points?

By utilizing my hotel loyalty credit card, with every purchase I make I earn points.  Those points are deposited into my hotel loyalty program account until I use them for a hotel stay in an amazing location.

How do I utilize Upgraded Points?

By joining airline loyalty programs and using an airline loyalty credit card, I accrue miles every time I purchase a flight and when I fly.  Then I can redeem those miles for free flights (with a small fee) or use those miles to upgrade to business or first class. 

Once you’ve figured out which loyalty programs and travel rewards credit cards are best for you, knowing how to redeem those points wisely to get the maximum benefits will help you travel more.
