Description

This is ONLY for US Residents.

Do you have a dream destination in mind? We can get you there!

Within 1 hour you will have gained the knowledge that it took me 5 years to obtain.

I'm giving you this knowledge so you can be inspired to travel but also have a means to travel. Everybody wants to see other countries but they just don't know how to make it work. I will show you how to overcome the biggest obstacle - the plane ticket.

Over the past 5 years I've traveled to over 10 countries and my flights have been FREE! I paid the taxes on the ticket and that's it! I do this by taking advantage of credit card sign up bonuses.

In this course you will learn how to do the same.

This course is for students who live in the United States.

This course is NOT for students who have a significant amount of credit card debt.

Who is the target audience?
  • You must be a US Citizen to take this course
  • If you have a lot of credit card debt, do NOT take this course
  • If you have a FICO score above a 700 - you can take advantage of the sign up bonuses
  • If you are just entering college and you are building your credit, this course will set you up for free flights for the rest of your life
