Our Travel Secret | Simply Sauer

First I want to say this post is 100% NOT SPONSORED! We just love it and want to share it with you!🥰❤️ The number one thing we hear when we tell people we love to travel is HOW??? How do you afford it? How do you travel so often? I think the number one thing is making it a priority! I grew up in a family where yearly trips were a thing. Even if it was just a road trip somewhere close you KNEW the Jenkins Family Trip was going to be happening! I always looked forward to spending a week uninterrupted with my favorite people! My grandparents were world travelers too and I loved hearing their stories about all the countries their visited!

When Hudson and I got married we made it a goal to do a trip a year! It didn’t have to be big but it was going to happen! A few months into our marriage we talked about CREDIT CARDS😂 No ones favorite topic! Hudson had one he never used and I had never had one because I was TERRIFIED of debt and to me credit cards = debt🤷🏻‍♀️ We did A LOT of research before deciding we wanted to get a travel rewards card! We would pay it off each week/month so no debt was on the card but this way we were getting points to use on travel for everyday things we were buying as college students: groceries, gas, books, etc. 

After looking at all the options we decided to get a Capital One Venture Card! We have used our points to book our flights every year since we got that card and it was the BEST DECISION!! A few reasons we chose that card:

  1. You can earn 60,000 bonus miles once you spend $3,000 on purchases within the first 3 months from account opening! We were able to get the bonus even as college students which was great!
  2. You earn unlimited 2X miles per dollar on every purchase!
  3. You aren’t limited to using points only on travel
  4. They have travel agents you can book through when you are ready to get hotels + flights! Or you can do it independently

We have LOVED our Capital One Venture Card! This is not sponsored at ALL! We just really do love it! We were able to go to Arizona for work, NYC last spring, book Mexico for last January and when we had to cancel due to COVID Capital One was extremely easy to work with and refunded us so we were able to use our points to go to DISNEYWORLD this Summer for Elsie’s first Birthday!❤️ If you are interested in applying for one today click HERE to get started and learn more!🥰❤️ Once your card arrives you can refer friends and get additional points!!
