For April’s Expert Interview, we had a chance to chat with Drew Bateman and Will Daley, founders of Social Nomads . Their website brings together travel articles and other relevant information in one place for ease of access. Both guys have extensive experience traveling abroad… and they have a knack for getting seriously off the beaten path.. When not focused on Social Nomads, Drew works full-time in sales for a software start-up and Will has a career in international development. We think you’ll enjoy our interview with Drew and Will and we hope you can learn something from their site!
We’ve been up to a lot the past few months and we are back with more. This round of updates cover hotel and airline data improvements, additional account personalization options, and improved clarity on our Market Data page. Take a look below for more information.
We’re excited to announce a new integration with AwardWallet. Many of you have asked for an easier way to automate and keep track of your point balances and we heard you!
We’re back with the latest installment of our Expert Interview series. This month, we had a chance to talk to Dan Miller with Points with a Crew. Dan started Points with a Crew in the summer of 2014 after planning a cross-country trip to a family reunion for his family of 8 (3 boys, 3 girls from 4-16 years old). Having a large family qualifies Dan as an expert in family travel, especially family travel with points and miles in place of cash. When Dan isn’t helping families travel through his blog, he is a Computer Programmer based in Cincinnati, OH. We hope you enjoy our interview with Dan and learn something along the way!
We’re excited for the March’s user success story from Emily and Roland. They are getting married in the fall and are in the process of planning their honeymoon to Australia. This isn’t going to be any honeymoon, this is going to be an epic honeymoon. With the help of RewardStock, Emily and Roland have booked their roundtrip business class flights and 8 of the 12 hotel nights in 5 star hotels all on points! If they were to pay for the flights and hotels, they would retail around $29,000! Take a look at their excitement in the video below.
We recently had the pleasure of sitting down with Rod Griffin, Director of Public Education with Experian. Experian is a leader in the credit services industry and is 1 of the 3 main credit bureaus that create, manage, and report your credit score. You see the Experian name anytime you run a credit report or score. Rod was kind enough to provide candid answers to many of the questions that our users have asked us. We figured, what’s better than going straight to the source?
We’ve divided this interview into 4 parts:
- Part 1: Credit Basics
- Part 2: Denials and Closing Accounts
- Part 3: Let’s Talk Numbers
- Part 4: User-Submitted Questions
Part 4: User-Submitted Questions is below. We hope you enjoy and learn something along the way!
