Road trips are still the most popular family vacations in America. Proper planning is the difference between a grueling ride and a pleasant journey so you definitely won’t want to miss our next #KidsNTrips family travel Twitter party. We’re joining forces with sponsor American Express to discuss our very best tips for surviving family road trips.
Topics include keeping the kids entertained and happy in the car, helpful apps, favorite road trip destinations, budgeting tips as well as some information about the new Amex EveryDay credit card that comes with Roadside Assistance and other travel perks that are ever so helpful during any kind of vacation.
The AmexEveryDay Credit Card Helps Families Travel for Less
The Amex EveryDay credit card is a new, no annual fee credit card that helps you earn sought-after Membership Rewards points to put towards future trips. And, you’ve probably already seen the ads featuring working mom Tina Fey using the card.
If you use the Amex EveryDay credit card 20 times in a billing cycle, you receive a 20% bonus on the points you earned. After your weekly grocery store run, your daily morning coffee, and all of those school supplies, you get the points boost to show for it.
What does this mean? You earn extra travel rewards to redeem for road trip savings on hotels and gift cards to use during the trip.
I am a huge advocate of earning travel rewards with credit cards, provided you pay the balance off every month. We put absolutely everything we can on credit cards in order to earn points that I redeem for business class tickets to Hong Kong every year.
