How I Flew My Family Of Five From NYC-San Diego in Business Class ($1000-$2000 per Ticket) for Free!

Updated: Jul 6, 2018

I flew my family of five from NYC - San Diego in Business Class ($1000-$2000 per Ticket) for free!

My wife and I really wanted to really treat the kids to something special. We thought a fun trip out to California from New York would be a great option! So, we decided to go to LA and San Diego – with our family of 5!

I booked the flight from JFK to California on United Business class which came complete with lie flat seats! They were absolutely amazing! The kids each had their own unit to sleep with music, tv, service and more! They loved it!

Even just an economy ticket would be $250 - $500 alone! A business flight from JFX to LAX was over $1,000 to $2,000 per ticket! So...we got a total savings between $5,000 - $10,000! That is amazing! I did this by utilizing points and rewards on only 2 - 3 credit cards, and our trip there was totally free!

So, How Did I Do It?

I booked using United 25,000 Saver points for each Business Class seat!

- INK Preferred 80,000 point bonus,

- And either Chase Sapphire Preferred 55,000 bonus, or,

- United Card with 40,000 point bonus gets you the trip!

With our Capital One Venture Card we also used the 50,000 points to pay for our Rental SUV – so that was free too!

I opened these cards to take advantage of the fantastic sign up bonuses. We use these cards to pay for everyday expenses, so we didn't have to spend extra just an order to get a free trip. It was an overall amazing experience for our family and best of all, free!
