Frequent Flyer FAQ

  • Do I have to get a bunch of credit cards?
  • Travel hacking through credit card signup bonuses (often 50,000 miles or points for a single signup) is a great way to build big balances without much effort. We encourage all our readers to be responsible and build strong credit for the future. However, if you’re not able to get cards at this time—or if you just don’t want to—that’s okay too. There’s more than one way to upgrade your traveling life.

  • What if I don't live in North America?
  • We have happy travelers all over the road. A few opportunities, including those credit card signup deals, may only be available to readers in the U.S. and Canada. But many more aspects of travel hacking are fully applicable worldwide.

  • Does "hacking" mean taking advantage of people?
  • Nope. It means putting the mileage and points systems to good use. These systems are profit centers for airlines and banks. You aren’t doing anything unethical by learning to benefit them.

  • How does the guarantee work?
  • Pick up the guide (any version) and spend some time going over the materials. If it really doesn’t serve your needs after 30 days, let us know and we’ll make it right.

  • I'm ready to get started... what's next?
