Not MIA Just in a Land Down Under

It’s been very quiet at Traveling Well For Less. No worries, I haven’t ditched the blog, I’ve been traveling.

We (my husband joined me on this trip, imagine that) went to Sydney for a week, so expect to see lots of blog posts about Sydney, all there is to do and see, free things in Sydney, the Blue Mountains, Sydney craft breweries, Qantas First Class A380, Radisson Blu, Hilton Sydney, and Park Hyatt Sydney, how to spend a week in Sydney for less than $200, and more.

I’m now traveling solo again to another destination. Once I get there, I’ll post a photo.

The Chase Sapphire Preferred is the best card to get started in the world of miles and points. It is the first card you should get to start traveling for free because the welcome offer is 60,000 points after spending $4,000 in the first three months.

The Chase Freedom Unlimited is one of my favorite cards for earning cash back card and travel rewards. It offers a welcome offer of 3% cash back = an extra 1.5% cash back on up to $20,000 in purchases your first year.
My favorite perks about this card are earning 6.5% cash back on travel booked through the Chase Travel Portal , 4.5% cash back at drugstores and restaurants, unlimited 1.5% cash back on all purchases and no annual fee.
