Jarrod West

As a former broke college graduate with an insatiable desire to see the world, Jarrod became fascinated with using points and miles as the perfect way to visit dream destinations without breaking the bank.

Like many others who enter this hobby, his fascination quickly led to a full-blown obsession which resulted in earning millions of points and spending 3 months traveling Europe with his girlfriend, Valeria, financed almost entirely with points and miles!

Thanks to points and miles, Jarrod has been fortunate enough to travel to 14 new countries and 22 US states. He also runs his own travel blog, the Freequent Flyer Blog, where he specializes in providing consulting services to those who are new to points and miles.

Jarrod holds a B.S. in Economics from Northern Kentucky University. When he’s not traveling or writing about the latest travel credit card, Jarrod loves cooking (mostly eating!), reading, and cheering on Liverpool F.C.
