We’re all familiar with the typical ways to earn loyalty rewards – book a flight, open a rewards credit card, make a hotel reservation, rent a car, and so on. What you might not be aware of are the countless ways to earn points and miles with your feet on the ground — and even from the comfort of your couch.
As you’re planning for your next trip, every point and mile you can collect will contribute to making your adventure even better. For example, rewards can be redeemed for upgrades to more comfortable seats, in-flight entertainment, free meals and snacks, a spa package once you arrive at your hotel and more.Build your bank of travel rewards without ever setting foot on a planeClick To Tweet
