FrugalTravelGuy’s mission is to help regular folks like you see the world at prices you can afford. The blog was founded by Rick Ingersoll in 2007 to educate readers about the value of frequent flyer miles and points. The FTG team has since traveled the world extensively in first and business class for minimal out-of-pocket cost. By leveraging rewards credit cards, we’ve shown thousands of readers how to do the same.
FrugalTravelGuy is part of an affiliate sales network. The credit card issuers listed on this site pay a small referral compensation when we send them new card members via our links. This in turn allows us to pay Howie, Christine, Ariana and Miguel to keep ferreting out deals and resources for you. The writers work to be resources in all aspects of the credit, miles and points game, including credit card offers and products not listed within our affiliate program, though we do not list all credit cards available. We want to get you the best deal possible on travel, and display cards accordingly.
The opinions and beliefs in each article are those of the author alone, who makes every effort to ensure the accuracy of information and provide guidance based on personal preference, not monetary incentive. We never choose the cards in our wallets based on the commissions paid by the banks. We choose cards just like you do — which ones best serve our travel goals.
As bloggers, we play the game the same as readers: by maximizing our returns and getting the most value we can for our inquiries and applications. It’s that plain and that simple.
At present, some credit card offers from the following advertisers offer us a potential commission:
