Money Saving Tip:  Million Mile Secret Agents love flying on Southwest Airlines to Orlando and Anaheim-area airports.  Because you get 2 free checked bags.  And there are no blackout dates when you book with Southwest points!  You can earn lots of Southwest points when you unlock the intro bonus from:

Alaska Summer Cruises

Alaska cruises depart from both Seattle and Anchorage.

Hot tip:  You’ll earn 2X Chase Ultimate Rewards points (our favorite flexible travel points) when you use your Chase Sapphire Preferred® Card to pay cruise lines and travel agencies.  With Chase Ultimate Rewards points you can book blackout-free travel through the Chase portal.

Aloha, Hawaii!

Hawaii doesn’t need extra reasons for people to visit!

We really like Hyatt hotels because you can stay free when you transfer points from your Chase Sapphire Preferred to Hyatt.  Or you can use points and perks from The Hyatt Credit Card.

  • Hyatt Regency Waikiki Beach Resort and Spa
