I’ve done a couple posts in the past about our flying secrets, but I have a little bit more info today to share with you!
It’s far from a secret that we love a good getaway around here! On our single-income budget you won’t find us going anywhere too fancy, but we truly enjoy zipping around the country seeing family and friends when we can. Having our Southwest credit card has helped tremendously; We haven’t paid for a flight for any of us in well over a year!
- I’ve found flights on Southwest for as little at 4,500 points each way. With most (if not all) other airlines, one-way flights start at 12,500 points.
- Since I get one point (two points if you make purchases through Southwest.com) for every one dollar I spend, I can get a round-trip ticket for free on Southwest after spending just $9,000.
- In order to get a free round-trip ticket on any other major airline, you have to spend upwards of $25,000 (unless you have a different reward card that offers 2x/$1 – there’s a couple I know of). Hoping this makes sense!
Hi! I’m Erica, and I absolutely adore sharing my life on this website with you! I come here almost daily to blab about all of the things related to being a regular wife and mother in today’s ever-evolving society. I share about our new home, what’s on our kitchen table, what we’re hanging in our closets, where we’re traveling to next, my crazy 5 a.m. work outs, how I make time for girlfriends, our faith, and much more. We always have a lot of balls in the air and somewhat thrive on the chaos. I believe in the power of story-telling as a form of inspiration and entertainment, so I’m here to do both! I was born and raised in north Alabama and recently re-planted roots here again after my husband transitioned out of the Army (he is now in the Reserve and it’s going so well!) I’m a super proud mom to three little girls (ages 7, 4, and 1) who seem to be the stars of the show around here (for good reason – they’re pretty great!) I’m so glad you found me and are here reading! I hope we can get to know each other here on the blog as well as Facebook and/or Instagram. xoxo
