Who am I?
My name is Jordan, but I go by a variety of names: JP, Chasez, Slappy…the list goes on. I have an extreme obsession with credit cards, points and miles, and this my creative outlet where I can “vent.”
How did I get into the points game?
I still remember it vividly: my girlfriend and I had graduated college and worked for a couple years. When it came time to plan our first solo vacation, I was so excited. Until, being a responsible personal financial planner by trade, she told me she couldn’t afford to pay for travel – or at least not until she paid off all her student debt. I couldn’t take it. Did that mean we couldn’t travel at all for the next ten years?! I knew there had to be a way to go to amazing places without breaking the bank. After a deep dive into the internet, I began learning about travel hacking. Fast forward a year to our first redemption to Europe. After another six months we were on our first free business class flights to a free hotel stay in Barcelona, and we were fully on board. I haven’t looked back since.
What do I do?
By day, I’m a sales analytics manager at a multinational company, helping sales teams improve their results and operational efficiency. By night, I’m a points enthusiast who can often be found on the tennis court, the ski slopes, or somewhere around the world dining in the locals’ favorite restaurants with a glass of red wine in hand.
What can I do for you?
This all started with a mission to share what can be done with points and miles. By taking a few small steps, you can transform travel and vacations tremendously. I’m here to help you get there, by sharing the wisdom I’ve learned along the way. I primarily focus on international travel since that piques my interest, but also cover my best tips for domestic travel.
I’m always eager to hear from YOU – I want to hear about your travel goals and the obstacles getting in your way. Message me and we can talk.
