The Haul for last week was a little lame, I was busy getting ready for our long weekend from Friday and therefore ran out of time to manufacture much spend. Two items that I did get some decent points on are below.
$5000 of Travelers Checks yielded 7509 Virgin Atlantic Miles; which I transfer to Hilton Honors for 15018. The charge including shipping for that was $5.95. I’ll be using these HHonors points in my next vacation where I will be staying at the Conrad Maldives Rangali Island and the Conrad Tokyo on the same trip. I get 4 nights at these amazing properties for 145K HHonors points, which is roughly a total cost of $59.50, or under $15 per night…it is something of the epitome of why I chose to Travel Hack as a hobby and I am rather excited about the upcoming stay.
The second was a measly 450 UR points from using my Chase Ink Bold to pay for a Google Nexus 7 before I went to Nashville. I was planning to obtain a Tablet for Free, but my kindle croaked on Wednesday and I wanted something to take to read and use for internet etc. The Nexus 7 retails for $250 and I had to pay the balance of $90 after applying my Staples Ink Recycling Credit and Staples Rewards. Not bad, but not the goal of getting one for free. I plan to continue with this and get a second tablet in 6 months (really for free this time!).
Will have to work a little harder this week to keep the numbers up.
