How to Earn Bonus Points and Miles (Besides Credit Card Signups)

How to Earn Bonus Points and Miles (Besides Credit Card Signups)

The fastest way to earn points and miles (unless you fly international first class twice a week) is to collect credit card signup bonuses. But there are plenty of other ways to get extra points, besides your normal everyday spending. In my latest article for Business Insider, I laid out a few of the best ways to rack up the miles. From dining rewards programs to simple online shopping portals, there are some great, rewarding programs to help you on your way to your next travel goal.

For instance, even though they're not as lucritive as credit card bonuses, the signup bonuses from dining rewards programs helped Reni and I reach enough miles to book our honeymoon in first class. They can be great for giving your mileage balance that little boost it needs!

Take a look at the Business Insider piece and let me know what you think!
