Every summer we try to plan a trip home, usually ending up with at least one other trip squeezed in there too. Two weeks ago I found out I had flight vouchers set to expire on July 1 – and travel had to be used by that date. So Bella and I booked two tickets home to Colorado and flew out 3 days later.
I’ve gone across the country with my family since I was a little girl, all packed in the back of our van as we headed to California to see aunts, uncles and grandparents. I’ve been blessed to get to continue that as an adult through my blog too – our Disney cruise through the Caribbean, conferences in San Diego, Austin, Nashville, Indianapolis, and New York, last year’s trip to Zimbabwe. One of the parts my control freak self loves the most is the planning the whole thing.
Oh man. I LOVE to plan a trip. To save money, price our flights/hotels on different sites, compare routes when driving to see where good places to eat and landmarks are. It’s easier to do when a card like Discover offers:
- No annual fee
- Fly any airline any time. Just buy a ticket and use Miles to credit your statement
- 1.5x miles for every dollar spent on purchases
- An annual credit up to $30 for in-flight Wi-Fi charges
- Miles never expire
- No foreign transaction fees
- Overnight shipping of a replacement card to any U.S. street address upon request
- A $0 fraud liability guarantee where you are never responsible for unauthorized purchases on your Discover card
Discover it Miles cardmembers can redeem miles at any amount for cash, or as a statement credit toward their travel purchases, including commercial airline tickets, hotel rooms, car rentals, commuter transportation and taxicabs.
As an introductory offer, Discover it Miles cardmembers will now receive double the amount of miles they’ve earned at the end of their first year – with no spending cap. That gives travelers using the Discover it Miles Card the opportunity to determine for themselves the amount of bonus miles they receive in that first year.
What could make a trip home or away for the summer easier and a bit more enjoyable than knowing you’re already saving up for the next one?
