Welcome to the blog. I am glad you stopped by!! By background I earned a Ph.D in Materials Science from University of Southern California (Go Trojans!) and work as a Research Scientist making cool chemicals and amazing polymer foams.
However what really gets my juices flowing is earning miles and points to plan our next (almost free) vacation. By implementing various strategies and techniques I have collected almost 2 million points and miles in the last two year which I value over $60,000 . I have used these miles and points to fund our first class class trips around the world for almost pennies. So how did a research scientist got excited about the world of miles and points (a.k.a FREE TRAVEL) the pictures below should tell the story –
I intent to share via my blog several techniques (credit card sign ups, manufactured spending, shopping portals) to help others achieve their travel goals and also share our trip reports. In the last two years we have traveled to several destinations in US , Europe, Mexico, Asia and the Caribbean staying at some top class hotels and flying business or first class while literally spending pennies.
