About

Are you a newbieCraig Ford who wants to learn how to use credit card sign up bonuses to earn free flights?

If so, this site was created to teach everything you need to do to take advantage of the best credit card offers and opportunities to open the world to you at prices you otherwise couldn’t afford.

The cheapest way to travel, I frequently find, is by taking advantage of credit card sign up bonuses.  That’s why this blog focuses on credit card related topics (and occasionally touches on other travel topics).

Unlike other travel websites that provide you with every offer, every detail, and every travel related nuance, I act as a filter to my readers.

Ideal readers embrace the 80/20 principle.  Give us 20% of the information that results in 80% of the mileage accumulation.  The best part of all is that this saves you a lot of time.

I also promise to do my best to provide everything to you in plain English.  I avoid jargon that only travel experts know.

If you’re new to the ‘game’ of nearly free travel, you’ll find a welcome home here at Help Me Travel Cheap where no question is too basic.

Send me an email, and guess what? I personally respond to every email.  Ask a question, and I’ll answer it.  Leave a comment, and I’ll reply.  I want to help you learn how to travel cheaply.  Hey, I might not be an expert in grammar (Help Me Travel Cheap instead of Help Me Travel Cheaply), but I am an experienced travel writer and consultant who has flown to eight countries in 2012.

By the way, I only post twice a week (with the occasional 3 times a week when there’s a lot of activity).  If you want to subscribe and get a free eBook, you can do that here.

If you are a travel rookie, you should check out my partner blog, Travel Free Coach, where I help teach you everything you need to know to get almost free vacations.  The best place for you to start is by reading my free eBook, How to Travel Anywhere in the World for Next to Nothing.  Then you can request a free credit card consult to be sure you’re maximizing your credit card earning opportunities.

About Craig

Along with my wife and three kids (ages 7,5, and 3), I live in Cheyenne, Wyoming.  I’m a fulltime writer, blogger, and speaker.  Aside from this blog, I maintain another blog that focuses on Christian finances (www.moneyhelpforchristians.com).

Our family moved back to the United States in 2012 after working as missionaries in Papua New Guinea for six years. We are seasoned travelers who have dragged our young kids around the globe. Before having kids, my wife and I enjoyed traveling and thought when we had kids we would kiss traveling goodbye. However, nothing could be further than the truth. Even though we’re living off one income, we still get to do our fair share of traveling.

Occasionally, you’ll notice some articles by my wife, Jeri.  She has given some great family travel tips that have been posted on this blog.
