Aren’t Those Useless Points You’re Getting, Not Cash?
Nope. I can redeem the cash on anything remotely related to travel, in $50 increments, within a set amount of time. As soon as the points are processed, I can submit to have the cash knocked off of the flight purchase line item on my credit card. Not too shabby.
Also, all of this only took me a few minutes to figure out, at most. So my “paying myself” rate was still well north of $50/hour, for the effort I put in, probably closer to $100/hour.
Blogging about it? That took awhile.
Have you ever spent money to save money?
