Ever wonder how we’ve managed to travel for as long as we have? Well, it’s not always easy. We mainly live off of our savings but we’ve found a few creative ways to make money while on the road. We partner with Amazon.com and a few hotel booking sites earn a small commission on anything that is ordered or booked through our website. It’s no additional cost to our users and it helps Val get her daily wine fix.
If you love our blog posts and want us to continue creating content for you to enjoy, we hope you’ll consider helping our cause. We’ve outlined a few options below that are totally free for you and super easy to do!
Shop ’til You Drop
You probably already shop on Amazon.com right? Well we are an official Amazon affiliate which means all you have to do is click on this link which will take you to their homepage. Once you’re there simply shop as you normally would and be sure to bookmark it for future purchases. We’ll earn a small commission on your purchase and it won’t cost you a thing!
Take a Vacation
Got a vacation coming up? Well, when you get to where you’re going you will need a place to stay. We are lucky enough to partner with some of the best hotel booking sites in the business; Hotels.com, Booking.com, and Agoda.
When you’re ready to book a hotel just click on one of the links below and then book your room as you normally would. We’ll earn a small commission after your stay and it will cost you absolutely nothing!
Get a Credit Card with Major Perks
A lot of people ask us what credit card we use while traveling. Our all-time favorite is the Chase Sapphire Preferred card. If you’re going to be taking your own around-the-world-trip or even just going on a short vacation outside the US, it is definitely worth your time to apply for this card.
A few of the fantastic perks of the Chase Sapphire Preferred card include:
- No foreign transaction fees
- You get 50,000 bonus points after you spend $4,000 in the first 3 months
- You’ll earn 2X points on travel purchases
- No annual fee for the first year
