After my family’s first trip to Disney last year, I thought I’d look into getting a new credit card with better rewards to help pay for another vacation this summer.
After investigating our options in Canada, my husband and I both got new credit cards with better rewards accumulation. Even though we need to pay for an annual fee, I think the faster accumulation of points is worth it. We currently use our credit cards to pay for everything and pay the bills in full each month, so we can get the extra points.
In less than a year, we already have over $1,200 in rewards points.
- I used one credit card’s rewards points to get about $600 off the cost of our flights to Orlando.
- My hubbie got $350 off his last credit card bill using his points.
- I still have about $300 in points that I am planning to use for a car rental.
The point of my post is to look at what your credit cards are earning in rewards points each year. I previously had no fee credit cards but they were taking forever to accumulate points. Sometimes the credit cards with an annual fee are better, if you can pay off your bill each month.
I think if you use this strategy, you can easily earn enough points to pay for some of your vacation to WDW.
