There is an almost sub culture of people that engage in Travel Hacking. Travel hacking is a term used by folks that use various reward and miles credit cards to rack up thousands of air miles. The best ones treat it almost as a business. There are ways to responsibly use cards to gain reward miles with the airlines but you have to be disciplined. Pay off the card balance monthly. Some cards have great sign up rewards. One of the easiest to qualify for miles is the AMEX Delta Skywards card
. After spending only $1,000 in 3 months you get 30,000 bonus miles. There are a lot of sites geared towards travel hacking if you want to learn about it.
