Between work, family, school and free time, not many of us have a spare moment for tracking and racking up loyalty points and miles for upcoming vacations.
Luckily, many loyalty programs are making it easier than ever to earn points and miles as you go about your everyday life. Here are some simple ways to earn more rewards.''Earning points and miles is as simple as buying coffee, groceries and gas #LoyaltyTips #ThePointsmans''Click To Tweet
Ordering your daily caffeine boost
Most of us can’t imagine starting our day without a coffee in hand. If you’re a member of Hilton HHonors, you can use the program to keep your coffee supplies fully stocked and order your favorite Starbucks flavors delivered right to your home.
Every dollar spent through the Hilton HHonors online mall earns you two loyalty points that can be redeemed for a free hotel stay later on. It’s an easy way to earn loyalty rewards without even thinking about it.
Loading up on gas and groceries
Rewards credit cards like the Wells Fargo Rewards Visa Card can help you earn points on your weekly groceries and gas. You can earn up to five times the rewards points for every dollar spent on groceries in the first six months. When it comes to getting to and from the grocery store, the Wells Fargo Rewards Visa Card once again has you covered. You can rack up five times the points for each dollar spent on gas.
Gas and groceries make up a big chunk of the average household’s monthly budget, making it easier to rack up loyalty rewards quickly.
Picking out clothes
Did you know, you can tap into United MileagePlus Shopping to earn miles while shopping for new outfits? For example, you can earn one mile per dollar spent at Gap or up to four miles per dollar spent at J. Crew. Thousands of other retailers across categories participate as well, so there are so many ways to earn while shopping online.
Traveling on public transportation
When you’re traveling to a new city, you might rely on public transportation to get around and explore. Loyalty cards like the Citi ThankYou Premier Credit Card can help you earn three times the points regardless of whether you pay for a bus, train or taxi.
This added flexibility comes in handy, especially when you’re traveling to and from the airport with tons of luggage or trying to find the quickest route around the city. Rather than worrying about whether you earn more loyalty points when using one transportation method over another, you can simply choose the one that is most convenient.
There are many ways to collect points and miles in your everyday activities. Don’t miss out on these simple earning opportunities that quickly add up to that Hawaiian vacation you’ve been saving up for.
