Podcast #5 How You Can Visit Hawaii for Nearly Free


The “omg, pinch me, is this really happening?” Type moments of life are not just reserved for Disney characters and fairytale stories. Surreal and once-in-a-lifetime moments are possible for every traveler!

Seeing pictures and videos on the internet is one thing, but living it is something different. All three of us can look back at moments and memories we have been able to create because of points and miles that still take our breath away.

The best part is we never experienced these moments alone; taking our friends and family along for the journey is what makes it all worth it. Things and items fade, but memories last a lifetime. If you want to leave a lasting legacy and give your kids the gift of travel, this episode is for you!

One of our go-to spots for family vacations is the beautiful islands of Hawaii! Most people assume that a trip like this would take years to save points for. However, with the tips and tricks we have picked up over the years, we have found that a trip to Hawaii is one of the best and simplest trips to pay for with points and miles! Some of us even capitalize on a Hawaiian vacation every year. (Almost totally free!)
