Hey travelers and adventure-seekers!
I finally made it to Vegas as an adult. I stayed at the MGM Grand Hotel when I was 7, attending my own parents wedding. I was the best surprise they ever got! But I was so lucky to have been their flower girl at a cute Vegas-chapel wedding, a milestone most kid’s don’t get to experience with their parents. However, it was about time I experienced this city the right way and not in a flower girl dress.
My boyfriend Jamie and I love to travel. We’re constantly navigating around our work schedules to see what weeks are best to go away and constantly keep a list of places we’re interested in seeing. We scan flights, check out hotel and Airbnb reviews, figure out travel time and realistic scenarios of us going places whether it’s a short weekend getaway or a week long.
We knew months ago that we wanted to be able to book a trip for free, just like all these other travel bloggers and influencers – we just weren’t sure how. After some research, we realized it was actually quite easy. It’s all based on the credit card you have and the points system associated with it.
That’s why, after some extensive research, we both signed up for the Chase Sapphire Preferred Visa Card. Because of this card, we were able to book a fully-paid weekend-getaway to Las Vegas, both flights and hotel included, over LABOR DAY WEEKEND! One of the most commonly-known expensive weekends to travel. We stayed at The Venetian on The Las Vegas Strip, soaking up the sun by the pools (since it was hot af), doing some light gambling and attending an amazing Cirque du Soleil show. It was an incredible weekend to say the least.
And the best part is that you can do this too.
Here’s a breakdown of what you get when you sign up for the Chase Sapphire Card (content from Chase.com):
