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 .

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 2016 alone 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. In the last two years we’ve taken first Class trips to Europe, Australia, New Zealand, Jamaica, Dubai, India, Mexico to name a few. My three year old has been to over seven countries and flown over 50+ flights most of them in premium cabins . We’ve used credit card points and rewards startegies to not only travel but also experience things such as helicopter ride over the great barrier reef, visiting the 12 Apostles in Australia, visiting the largest indoor theme park in the world at Abu Dhabi, Scuba Diving and much much more.

    Hi Amit, I just found out about you from some Amazon sellers I know. I’m an Amazon seller and I spend at least &10,000 per month on my Wells Fargo cash back cards and want to learn which new cards I need to get. Let’s connect and talk about it. Thanks!
