We had a great seminar with some of our WorldWanderlusting followers last night and sometimes I’m afraid we make all of this far more complicated than it must be. The simple question? How do I get to Orlando for free? The answer? Here you go.
“We found a screaming cheap cruise out of Port Canaveral (Orlando) in January – how can we get to Orlando for free?”
When people want free things, I see them as greedy. When people want free travel, I see them as brilliant.
Here it is, this simple:
Get the Gold Delta SkyMiles® Credit Card from American Express. Spend $1000 in the next 3 months. Get 30k Delta Skymiles. Book your trip with 25k and save 5k for your next flight. (Annual fee of $95 waived the first year).
Don’t want to spend $1000 in the next three months or need them sooner?
Get the The US Airways Premier World MasterCard®. Make your first purchase. Get 30k US Air miles. Book your trip with 20k and save 10k for your next flight. (You will have to pay the $89 annual fee – a small price to pay for a free flight). If you have underdeveloped credit, there’s a chance they could approve you for a different card with fewer rewards – but you could also call the reconsideration line and ask for approval for the better offer.
Don’t want to pay the annual fee, or prefer to fly on planes that have in-flight TVs?
Get the The Frontier Airlines World MasterCard®. Earn 40,000 bonus miles after spending $500 in purchases in the first 90 days (The $69 annual fee is applied on this one as well). If you have underdeveloped credit, there’s a chance they could approve you for a different card with fewer rewards – but you could also call the reconsideration line and ask for approval for the better offer.
Don’t like all the possibility of getting denied the richer offer?
United has a great frequent flyer program with lots of availability: Mileage Plus. You need to take a look at the United MileagePlus Explorer Card.
