I’ve been talking about my new project for a long time. It’s finally time that I share my project with all the awesome Thousandaire readers. Me and a partner (long time readers know him as The Hoff) have created a site called Reward Boost dedicated to helping people maximize their credit card and loyalty program rewards.
The great news is that the site is finally live. The better news is that this is just the first of many stages.
Rewards Can Change People’s Lives
I am extremely passionate about helping people maximize their rewards because It may seem like a small thing, but I truly believe that rewards can change people’s lives. We will post stories of how real people have used rewards to save a bunch of money and, most importantly, the impact it has on their finances and their lives.
Most of the time people use rewards to do things like take incredible vacations, see family and friends, make improvements to their home, or pay off debt. All of those are really exciting things, and I want to help more people have the ability to do that.
The first example is my story of how rewards are saving me $771 and allowing me and Tag to visit my family over the holidays. I’m saving up for a 20% down payment on a house and the trip just wouldn’t be possible if I had to pay full price.
Another personal example of my own that I’ll be sharing on Reward Boost in the coming months is how I used rewards to be with my mom while she was going into surgery for stage 3 ovarian cancer.
I’ll share the whole story later, but the short version is this: I needed a last minute plane ticket from Dallas to St. Louis for me and Tag which would have cost about $800. Instead of paying $800 and seriously hurting my budget, it cost me just 18,000 points and $10.
My partner used rewards last year to help him pay for a Hawaiian vacation where he proposed to his girlfriend at the time. They recently had a Hawaiian themed rehearsal dinner for their wedding, had a close friend paint a picture of them on the beach in Hawaii, and now they are happily married. And the whole vacation may not have happened without rewards points and programs.
We are building this site because we want more people to have these stories. We want to help people have better lives and we want to share their stories with the world.
We Have the Best Rewards Reviews
Because we are so passionate about helping people boost their rewards and create life changing stories with them, our credit card and reward program reviews as better than anything else that exists on the internet.
Here is an example of the Citi ThankYou Premier review. This can be a really complicated card, but we explain all the details, what the rewards really mean and how much they are really worth. Again, we are doing this because we know what kind of life changes these rewards can mean for people.
We Have an Exciting Forum!!!
I know I’m not an expert on every reward program in the world. I don’t have all the answers. We have created a forum where people can share their expertise on certain rewards programs. They will also have an opportunity to share their own stories about how redeeming rewards has improved their lives.
I really hope you consider joining our community over at Reward Boost, and I hope you are as excited as I am about my next step towards entrepreneurship. Expect a lot more about secondary revenue streams and asset building in the future of Thousandaire!
