An American couple who earned two million airline points by subscribing to dozens of credit cards is now willing to travel the world for free.
Chad and Hannah Janis, 25, who met while studying in Utah, moved to New York in 2017 and started working on Wall Street.
Together, the couple earned $ 225,000 in their 12 months in banking, but they say their jobs were always intended as a means to an end.
After spending a year registering and using 26 different credit cards, they can fly to 40 countries, in business class, using their earned airline points.
Credit Card Scheme: The married couple enrolled in dozens of credit cards to earn registration bonus points to use on flights.
On the trip: the couple has now started their journey around the world, which will take them to fly to 40 different countries using their accumulated airline points.
The couple estimates that they have saved $ 84,000 in travel expenses.
"After winning more than two million airline points in the last year, we abandoned our financial work, sold our things and are taking off," Janises wrote on Instagram last week.
"Our tickets are already booked completely with points, and we are going to a unique trip in life to more than 40 countries in business class for free."
The couple told news.com.au that the key to their success was understanding how to obtain a credit card registration bonus by spending only enough money to meet the "minimum expense requirement".
Big savings: the couple estimates that they have saved $ 84,000 in travel expenses
"We have already booked the next eight months of free flights, most of which were through the world-class offer around the world of Singapore Airlines (240,000 points per person)," Janis told the website.
"From there, we used the points we got with other airlines through the registration vouchers of our cards to reserve shorter and auxiliary airline tickets, such as our flight from Auckland, New Zealand, Vava & uke, Tonga and many others.
"We also have several hundred thousand points with hotel programs.
The couple has now launched their own Wall Street Minimalists website, where they explain how they got their two million points in 12 months using their first 26 credit cards.
Some of the cards they opened were linked to groups of hotels, such as a Chase Marriot Rewards credit card, which allowed them to "save" $ 6,000 by staying a week at a Marriott resort in Fiji.
