Accumulating more cash back rewards when you travel
Earning credit card rewards such as cash back is an excellent way to get more out of your purchases. They add up on your everyday transactions and make an even bigger difference when you make a large purchase such as travel. When you book online, there are ways to accumulate even more cash back and save money with a few extra clicks.
Using a promo code from an online coupon as well as earning cash back from an online shopping site are easy ways to stretch your travel dollars without sacrificing any credit card rewards. The online coupon yields immediate savings with dollars off your bill. The online shopping cash back is much like credit card cash back, as you accumulate it over time until you are ready to cash out and are awarded a portion of your transaction. Combined these elements with credit card rewards for more savings:
1. Use a coupon code when you book travel online (savings example: 20% off a $100 hotel stay = $20 saved)
2. Earn cash back (5% on your $80 total [after the 20% coupon] = $4 cash back from online booking)
3. Pay with a rewards credit card with a great cash back rate (5% on your $80 total [after that 20% coupon] = another $4 cash back from your credit card). The total savings in this example is $28 on a $100 purchase.
