In the last post, I shared with you how to flip products for profit. I'm up over $12,000 profit for the week. If you missed that post, click here on how to make over $3,200 this week. One of the benefits to sticking to a “make money” strategy is that you charge all of your business expenses and watch your points skyrocket.
The unexpected result of flipping items is that I hit my bonus points within a week. I earned 40,000 bonus points that I can use towards flights, cars & hotels. I just made a TikTok showing you step by step.
How to travel anywhere for $11.20 … ##ilovemakingmoney ##challenge ##travelcheap♬ original sound – thebusinesskid
Step 1: Get a Reward Credit Card
When you apply for the Southwest Airlines Rewards Credit Card, they give you a chance to earn 40,000 bonus points if you spend a certain amount within 90 days. And that amount is just $1,000.
When you flip items, you can hit that amount within a weekend. We love Southwest Airlines because not only can you fly for $11.20, there are no baggage fees – so you truly are traveling for $11.20. And if you get there early, you can easily get a good seat because they use the first come, first-board policy.
Step 2: How to Search for Cheap Flights
Now, you can search for cheaper flights on Google & when you use the map mode as seen in the video, you can be adventurous and pick a new location.
You can zoom in to view different city's cheapest flights here. For a detailed about how to search for cheap flights, click here. If you're not ready to book a trip, you can use Google Flights to track prices for a flight or route.
Step 3: Pay with Your Points
When you search for flights, make sure you select “by points” to view how many points it takes to fly. Now that I have close to 54,000 in points, I can fly around the world and back for $11 taxes and fees.
Book with points is easy:
- Log in to your Rapid Rewards account on the Southwest.com® homepage.
- Enter your flight information and view fares in points.
- Select your flight, review the price and schedule.
- Input your information and then purchase the flight.
In this case, I want to go to Vegas for a week at the end of the month. It will cost me around 5,442 points. All I pay is the $11.20 taxes and fees. Because I hit my credit card bonus, I can take 8 total trips.
Now the question is… Where should I go next?
I’m going to try this been wondering how people are doing $11 flights.
Hi there! This is my 1st comment here so I just wanted to give a quick shout out and tell you I really enjoy reading your blog posts.
I’ve been doing this for a few years. Very fun. The trick is to put all your expenses on one card. Then, move on to the next card and so forth.
This information is invaluable. Where can I find out more?
My brother recommended I might like this web site. This is going to save me so much money.
Are people traveling during the coronavirus?
Great idea for this.
Great hack. Thanks!
I’ve wasted so much money on flights when I could have done this the entire time. THANK YOU!
I just sent this to my husband. We better be traveling a lot more in 2021.
