While we haven’t been making much headway on airline and hotel loyalty programs in the last year, what we do have are lots and lots of credit cards points, accrued from a year and a half of takeout, groceries, and gas bills—among plenty of other purchases (namely loungewear). But how should we spend those stockpiles now that travel is starting to reenter our lives? This week, we tasked Jessica Puckett, Traveler’s senior editor for transportation and travel news, and Jasmine Baron, an associate editor covering credit cards at Insider, with helping us find solutions.
The short answer? “There really isn’t a right or wrong way to spend your points and your miles,” Jasmine says in the episode. But we’ve got plenty of ideas of where to start, from cashing in on free hotel stays during road trips to, yes, booking that overwater bungalow in the Maldives.
