You can earn miles without flying on a plane.
Lyn’s favorite airline is Southwest. One of the reasons why is their annual companion pass.
Ways to Earn Points
Point bonus with a new card
1 point earned per dollar spent
Pay utility bills with credit card
Refer others to sign up for a Southwest Credit Card (earn 10,000 points per referral)
Ways to Stretch Your Points
Watch for cheeper itineraries (fly early/late in the day)
Buy when Southwest has a sale
Fly on a Tuesday or Wednesday
Check flight after it’s booked to see if point price has dropped and request a refund for the difference. (Go to change/cancel, enter info and you will see if the price has changed.)
Consider flying out of a nearby airport if the points are less from that city.
