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.

Right at the start of 20+ hours flying in Singapore Suites, sipping Dom Perignon champagne (they also serve Krug in Suites as well!)

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)

In Singapore Suites, the seats fold down and make a crazy-comfy bed 40k feet in the sky. You never want the flight to end.

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.

Singapore Suites First Class - Couples Dining
We dined together and enjoy an incredible 4-course meal with everything that we wanted! Not bad for ~$78.

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!

This is me (trying to smile), before diving into Lobster Thermidor! So much fun! Out of pocket was ~$100 (Sydney > Singapore > Hong Kong).

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.
