Last weekend, we went to New York City to unwind and discover the Big Apple. It was a great way to forget about our daily routines and enjoy the high-pace of the city. A few weeks before our trip, we planned a few activities and booked our hotel with reward points. We booked a hotel in Midtown (Time Square) for $325 a night but we actually paid a total of $0.00 for our whole stay.
Last September, we got married and waited until the winter to go off on our honeymoon. After much consideration, we decided to escape the snow in Mexico. With a few travel hack and rewards points, we were able to cut our costs down drasticaly. All through our trip, we have kept a tab and tracked our expenses to share with you guys.
In July 2015, we traveled to Italy for a conference held in Turin. Fortunately, Mrs. Xyz traveled for free since it was for her work so we only had to pay for my ticket.
We usually use our business travels as an opportunity to extend our stay and cut vacation expenses. This time around, we extended a 5-day business trip to Turin into an 11-day trek around northern Italy!
