Nonstop Points is written by Payton Turner, a student at UVA with a strong wanderlust. Payton had the opportunity to travel numerous times throughout his childhood. From a very young age, Payton’s dad made it clear that these trips were possible due to the points and miles that he collected through smart use of credit cards and work travel. Payton was always fascinated by how loyalty to a hotel brand or airline gave their family better treatment, with shorter waits, better service, and best of all upgrades. He didn’t realize that most people actually have to pay for breakfast at a hotel!
Payton learned at an early age that you do not need to be rich to travel luxuriously. The Turner family often sits in more comfort and upgrades to unbelievable suites that if paid in full, would be unaffordable, all because they know how to maximize value by focusing on loyalty. Points and miles have allowed Payton and his family to travel the world, going places as far as Australia or a weekend skiing trip in Colorado with flights for close to zero out of pocket. (darn that $5.60 security fee!)
During those travels, they have been able to experience some amazing hotels, airline products, and lounges that are and will be shared on this site. This website is used to teach people how to travel for free, using credit card sign up bonuses and high value reward redemptions to maximize value. In addition, the website will teach young adults who have just gotten the ability to sign up for a credit card how to grow their credit score and be responsible with credit. This will not only get them amazing travel rewards cards but will start them towards a lifetime of financial security. Nonstop Points firmly believes that strong financial planning early in your life, allows you to have less stress, more freedom, and simply put, a lifetime of happiness. Yes, sometimes you have to pay full price to travel during the holidays like everyone else, but by planning ahead, you can still save.
Life is short, and the world is wide. Expand your horizons. Elevate your travels with Nonstop Points.
