Good morning everyone, I hope you had a great Mother’s Day Weekend. I wanted to give a quick thank you to TWG readers who attended my OC Travel Hackers Meetup on Saturday and to all the TWG readers who left comments about how wonderful their mom is on my Amazon Gift Card Giveaway post (I will pick winners later today). Let’s keep the thank yous coming.
This post is about credit card affiliate links, credit card referral links, and buy miles/points affiliate links. I know there are some readers that hate using affiliate links and supporting bloggers by using those links. That makes me sad. Blogging is lots of fun, but it definitely requires work and lots of time. Advertising revenue is nice, but credit card affiliate links is where the big money is. I am a big proponent of credit card sign up bonuses and supporting my favorite travel bloggers, and credit card affiliate links are the perfect combination. I hate talking about credit card affiliate links because I don’t want to sound greedy. With all that said, I recently switched credit card affiliate networks (actually, they decided I was not producing enough sales and removed me from the program), so now I am with a new (smaller) credit card affiliate network. I recently redesigned my credit card page and wanted to let my readers know (click the Credit Card link in the top navigation).
At the top of the page, I have a list of credit card affiliate categories. Sorry, I don’t have direct links to credit card offers, but click on the credit card category that best matches which credit card you are interested in. This credit card affiliate network is smaller and newer than the previous network, so the website might not have every credit card you are interested in. As the network continues to grow, they will increase the number of credit cards they offer. If you do apply for a credit card through one of the category links, I really appreciate your support!
Below the credit card category list, I have a list of credit card referral links. If you are interested in any of these specific credit cards, click the link and you will be able to apply directly for that credit card. Every credit card referral link provides miles, points, or cash back to me for the referral. I really appreciate you using any of my referral links!
Shelli also has a few credit card referral links. If you really enjoy her writing (and who doesn’t?), please use her referral links to show your support for her writing.
In other news, I created a Buy Miles & Points page (just hover your mouse over the Travel Resources link and click the Need More Miles & Points link). This page is perfect if you are short a few hundred or a few thousand miles/points for your next epic award trip.
I also have all the currently running buy miles/points promos and their end dates. I tried to add every major airline (both domestic and international), but if there is a program I missed, please let me know. I check the buy miles/points links often and add new promos when they popup.
I also have all of the major hotel programs. If there are any that I missed, please let me know.
Lastly, if you would like to support Shelli, she has a list of her favorite buy miles/points programs.
I hope these 2 pages are useful and I welcome all feedback (both good and bad). I really appreciate all the TWG readers and thank you for using any of the links. If you have any questions, please leave a comment below. Have a great day everyone!
