If you want to use your Platinum Card to save money and upgrade your travel…
Dan Miller is the founder of PointsWithACrew.com, a site that helps families to travel for free or cheap. In 2013, faced with an expensive Lake Tahoe extended family reunion, he made his first foray into the world of credit card rewards. By the next summer, with a few well-timed credit card applications, he used 170,000 Southwest Rapid Rewards points to purchase eight round-trip cross-country plane tickets. He started Points With a Crew to help others realize that thanks to credit card rewards, their next family vacation might be closer than they think.
His work has been featured in Forbes, NerdWallet, Quicken Loans, Intuit Mint, Business Insider and Yahoo. Along with his family, Dan’s usage of credit card rewards has been featured on the CBS Sunday Morning show.

"Since I first started learning about miles, points and credit cards back in 2013, they have helped my family and I have to travel way more than I ever would have thought imaginable. I love writing and helping families (especially large families) travel for free or cheap."
