Wait…that’s my day job LOL
Anyone who works in or around the operating room knows what this means.
But seriously, let me reintroduce myself to you, AWESOME healthcare fam!
Hey Healthcare Fam!
My name is Alex Campbell aka Dr. Flamingo.
I created a business dedicated to points and miles travel exclusively for healthcare workers. You may have heard the terms “Travel hacking” or “points and miles game”.
I help healthcare workers who love to travel but are overwhelmed, stressed, and confused about making it happen to confidently booking tickets, easily packing for their dream trips and having financial freedom by using their flexible credit card points and miles.
How did I get started with travel hacking?
I have had flexible points travel credit cards since 2015. My husband and I bought a home and accrued lots of points (sign-up bonus) by spending on home renovations.
I had always redeemed my points through the credit card “portal” thinking that was the efficient use of my points. The companies tout a small bonus for using their site to book travel and do not give any indication that their points can be used any other way.
Fast forward to 2022…I stumbled upon some groups on a social media site that taught all about the use of points in ways I had never heard of!
All this time I was using the portal, this same portal could be used to transfer points to the credit card’s travel partners.
A LIGHTBULB WENT OFF!!
I have been using my points all wrong for years!
Most major credit card companies that offer premium travel credit cards are partners with over 10 major airlines and multiple major hotel brands.
Transferring points to their partners can yield a 2,3, or even greater cent per point redemption.
That 1.25 cent bonus I got through the portal no longer made sense and I was throwing money away unnecessarily.
TRAVEL HACK– Here are Dr. Flamingo’s 5 basic principles of travel hacking:
- Apply and get approved for a flexible currency travel credit card
- Spend, spend spend- No debt here! Pay all your regular bills, tuition, daycare, and any other expenses that accept credit cards
- Meet the minimum spend requirement (MSR) for the promotional bonus
- Receive your sign-up bonus- These cards offer lucrative bonuses you can use to pay for travel
- Transfer points and book travel- Major learning curve here with flight/hotel award searches
Example of Award Booking Searches
TRAVEL HACK: You can transfer your flexible points to airlines and hotels and book directly for a much lower points cost.
Here are examples of real award booking searches I have “hacked” for a friend to help them get the most out of my hard-earned points while paying less cash than a tank of gas!
My Mission: Teach all Healthcare workers how to use points and miles the right way
These results are possible for anyone who wants to learn how to travel more and pay less.
Let’s face it…travel prices have increased drastically over the last 3 years making it impossible for some healthcare workers to travel. Throw in schedule constraints in the line of healthcare work or the need to work around the school calendar and the cost skyrockets.
I have become an expert in travel hacking in less than a year.
The world of travel hacking is ever-changing and I continue to learn new things all the time. This may not be feasible for my healthcare fam. I saw a need and a problem.
Award searches are hard and some people either want to learn or don’t. Dr. Flamingo is to help.
