I’m Alex Miller, the founder of this travel website…which is of course puts me as a small business owner! Yay!
As a small business owner, I decided that I didn’t want to earn cash-back on business expenses like most others do. Nope.
Instead, I accrue extremely valuable rewards points for (practically) every business expense that I have.
Then, I use those points on unforgettable, luxurious flights that I could never afford in cash.
Just so you know – I don’t have any fancy airline status, and in fact – I earn about 0.5% of my points and miles from flying.
That’s because I actually don’t fly that much, certainly not domestically and many of my flights are award flights (and airlines only credit miles to your frequent flyer account if you’ve paid cash for your flight).
In a nutshell: One of the ways that I earn a LOT of points is by charging my everyday business expenses to a high rewarding credit card. In this short post, I focus on my absolute favorite business credit card which allows me to travel like a rockstar, using points (and minimal cash).
How I Like To Spend My Points
Just recently, I met up with one of my best friends in Frankfurt (Germany) at the airport — and we flew together in Singapore Suites from Frankfurt to Singapore, and then onto Sydney, Australia.
It was a blast.
We flew out to a) enjoy an incredible First Class experience and b) to meet with one of our college friends who lives out there in Australia.
Bottom Line: I paid for these two tickets with the points that I earned from using the Ink Business Preferred® Credit Card for my everyday business expenses. The total cost out-of-pocket was $78 USD per person. Seriously.
You can read about it all here if you like (how many miles it cost me, how I booked the tickets etc)
Below is a separate trip that I took last year with my wife, Erin when we flew around the world in Singapore Suites (below), Emirates First Class and Etihad’s Apartment’s.
And just recently, I flew Singapore Suites’ NEW product (review coming soon) which was quite frankly, jaw-dropping. I couldn’t believe how much room there was!
The Exact Points I’m Earning To Book These Trips
I put the bulk of my business expenses on the Ink Business Preferred Credit Card which earns me valuable Chase Ultimate Rewards points on every business transaction.
These points can be used in so many different ways for insane value, and flying Singapore Suites is just one of those ways.
If you’re a business owner, and you want to fly in business and first class using points (not cash), I’d strongly recommend picking up the Ink Business Preferred.
Here on the blog, you’ll find everything you need to use those points for maximum value. For Singapore Suites, we walk you through it step-by-step.
Speaking of “steps”, the 1st one is getting a card that earns points you can actually do something with!
