Katie Holden

Hello! I’m Katie! Eleven years ago, I wanted to find a way to stretch our family's travel budget and decided to go all in with travel hacking. Since then, our family has been to Hawaii, Asia, the Caribbean, Europe — and more — all thanks to strategically earning and redeeming points.

I'm so glad you're here! I love teaching other families the simple tricks we use to travel with credit card points.
