This article is the last in our 6-part beginner’s guide to points:
As we saw in part 4, this is the route you have to take:
- Set a short-to-medium-long-term goal(s)
- Define rewards programs that are useful to achieve this goal
- Target the credit cards needed to inflate your portfolio of points and miles
We are often asked by the community to establish customized strategies with credit card rewards points.
This is a particularly delicate exercise because everyone has different :
- different desires (economy class vs. business, hotels vs. airbnb, nature vs. urban, etc.)
- different lives (single vs. couple, couple vs. family, etc.)
- different flexibilities (slack vs. retirement, salaried vs. self-employed, etc.)
- different means (students vs. high income, etc.)
- different expenses (large grocery stores vs. market, daycare costs, etc.)
In short, one size does not fit all when it comes to credit card rewards strategies!
However, here are several strategies, along with credit card rewards points, that we have put together exclusively for our readers to help you establish YOURS!
Each of these strategies is established in the same way:
- The goal
- The cards
