We finally did it. We’ve used up the bulk of the travel points we’ve collected over the past 2 and a half years on the Capital One credit card I’ve told you about for the past 2 and a half years to redeem absolutely for free 2 round trip, trans-atlantic flights over to London. The cost of those 2 roundtrip tickets were $2,134. Using 213,400 points, we erased the entirety of the purchase. And we still have about 13,000 points left. I think I calculated the net travel value incorrectly last time around: we’ve paid $360 in total fees, but since we get 10,000 annual bonus points (worth $100), the net fees we’ve paid to attain all these points has been $60. I hope that this 2 and a half year didactic exercise serves as a blueprint for structuring your life to uncover and exploit all the delicious opportunities that exist.
