When it comes to traveling the world, flying in business or first class, earning free nights in hotels, or just being able to earn free stuff, there are those with the know-how and then the rest of us. What was previously the exclusive realm of the rich and famous, or experienced nomads, can now be yours too!
Popular blogger and experienced world traveler Chris Guillebeau has put together a graduate course for those wanting to learn the ways of the traveling elite. Chris is the founder of the Art of Non-Conformity website and book of the same name. Now he has put together the Travel Hacking Cartel!
The Travel Hacking Cartel is based on Chris’s extensive experience accumulated in the past ten years or so, during which time he has visited over 150 countries to date! Chris and a team of contributors have put together a learning plan to help you learn the ways of “travel Jedis”. They offer deals on how to earn hotel points, airline miles, and other incentives. The cartel shows you how to get free or low cost upgrades for cars, hotels and airlines.
Want to know about good traveling blogs?
Want to know about free applications you can download to track all your reward points in one place or plan an around the world trip?
Want to know how to earn airline miles without ever setting foot on an airplane?
The Travel Hacking Cartel is a website and an exclusive members program. The three levels of membership are the following:
- Economy Class ($15/month): An introduction to the art of travel “hacking” that includes 15 tutorials and e-mail and text alerts on travel deals updated several times a month.
- Business Class ($25/month): Builds on the Economy Class by offering 25 tutorials, e-mail / text alerts, hotel deal alerts, and help with redeeming airline miles.
- First Class ($39/month): Everything in the other two membership levels with an emphasis on premium travel, achieving elite status levels, and earning upgrades.
So in this tough economy and with the prevalence of information available on the Internet, why you’re asking myself, should I pay for something like this? Granted this is a legitimate question worth asking. For one thing Chris is offering a 14-day $1 trial membership. If not satisfied with the program, cancel it and owe nothing further.
So what kinds of information will you get out of the program? For a sample of what you’ll get check out this information:
- Have a business? Earn a 1,000 Delta SkyMiles for opening a Federal Express account online.
- Earn 26,000 US Airways miles for undergoing Lasik surgery, or 1,000 just for scheduling an appointment!
- Learn about other programs such as 10,000 airline miles for graduating college, miles for refinancing your home, home or auto insurance quotes, or even sending flowers!
- Much, much more!!!
