Are you a travel ✈️ hacker or are you a backpacker? Learn and tell me ⬇️ in the comments below.
Fun fact travel ????hackers and backpackers are more similar than you may think! Both want to save money when traveling! Feel free to save ????this post, so you can quickly reference the similarities and differences! Here are some common problems we face.
Backpacker: I don’t need food at the airport, it’s $$$!
Travel Hacker: What time does the airport lounge open? I’m hungry!
Backpacker: I found a cheap flight!
Travel Hacker: OMG 40% transfer bonus! I can save on points to travel!
Backpacker: Wow only $10 a night for this hostel!
Travel Hacker: There’s a Hyatt for 5,000 points! Is there availability?!
If you are looking for a credit card that has ✈️ airport lounge access and that you can transfer points to Hyatt, I would recommend Chase Sapphire Reserve.
Chase Sapphire Reserve ???? has a $550 annual fee and you can get 50,000 Ultimate Rewards points when you spend $4,000 in 3 months. Feel free to DM me or go to this link if you would like a referral for this card!
Most recently, I received a retention ???? offer on my CSR card for $150, used the $300 travel credit on groceries, and received a $100 renewal credit. Essentially this offset the $550 annual fee I paid. I have also used Pay Yourself Back a few times to offset some of my travel costs at 1.5x.
Feel free to send this post to a friend ????if you also want to know if they are either a travel hacker or backpacker. Thanks!
