Guaranteed Flight Every Three Months!
Anyone who checks in here once in a while has probably heard me mention fellow-Oregonian, Chris Guillebeau.
Author of The Art of Non-Conformity (which went straight to #8 on Amazon’s Bestsellers List after its release last September), and coordinator of the upcoming World Domination Summit (in Portland- June 2011), Chris is inspiring to me as a writer, entrepreneur and globetrotter. In his quest to visit every country in the world by age 35, Chris has become quite the savvy “travel hacker” . . . and I’ve become a huge fan!

I’ve considered Chris’ Frequent Flyer Master package to be the #1 available resource for travel hacking tips for quite some time . . . until now. Although getting your hands on FFM is a stellar way for the newbie to become familiar with some of the tricks that can gain you cheap or free travel, the ante has just been upped!
Introducing (and launched just this morning) . . . the Travel Hacking Cartel!
The long and short of it is this: the Travel Hacking Cartel is a monthly service that aims to democratize free and low-cost travel. The membership site informs travelers exactly what they need to do to earn loads of Frequent Flyer Miles (without flying) and then how to redeem those miles for high-value trips. I got a sneak-peek at the site and am blown away by the info and tips being passed along to readers!
The best part? Chris is offering an amazing guarantee that I certainly can’t chance missing out on . . . if members spend at least 30 minutes a month following the site’s travel hacking directions, they’ll earn enough miles for at least one plane ticket every quarter (or four plane tickets a year)!
Highlights of the cartel’s service include:
– regular Deal Alerts (sent via email and SMS/text message), so that, when special promotions and other big opportunities come up, you’ll be the first to know!
– an extensive Knowledge Base and Tutorials to get people started with miles and points.
– the Refer-a-Hacker program, that pays current members 500 Frequent Flyer Miles for each referral.
Here are a handful of screenshots for you to check out (click on each to view a larger image):
Travel Hacking Cartel memberships are offered at three price tiers, ranging from $15-39 a month. I highly recommend checking it out- Chris is seriously the first guy I turn to when looking for creative travel hacking options! He knows ins-and-outs of the airlines and travel industry like nobody’s business.
If you’re not 100% ready to jump in headfirst like me, there’s still no reason not to at least give the cartel’s $1 14-day trial a shot. That’ll give you a chance to get inside, spend two weeks seeing what it’s all about and understand why I’m so impressed! Click here to get started travel hacking!
Tell you what . . . how’s about you join me in the cartel and, a few months from now, we chat again about where we’ll head off to for a little group adventure?!
