Who is teaching this course?

The instructors Jasper and Erik both have a wealth of knowledge and experience on the topic of travel hacking.

Jasper has been traveling full-time for over five years and has flown around the world one year without paying for a single flight, using frequent flyer points.

Erik runs an online business that manages clients award point portfolios. He has helped thousands of people earn free flights and free upgrades to business and first class flights. Erik has over 25 credit cards without ever paying a fee!

*********************************************************************************************************

Did you know banks often waive credit card fees when you ask for it?

It's much cheaper for a bank to retain a current customer than to acquire a new one. Therefore, banks are often willing to waive credit card fees if you negotiate correctly. We will teach you how to do this! In this course we have included real life conversations with bank employees in which fees of over $100 a year are waived. That's more than the price of this course, which means that even if this is all you take away from the course, you'll make your money back.
