Award Travel Academy

Hey, I'm Jess!

Credit card enthusiast, wife, mom, and creator of Award Travel Academy™. I can confidently say that points and miles have changed my life. If I can do it, so can you!

After the birth of my daughter in 2013, I knew I wanted to show her the world, but traveling on a budget seemed impossible. I decided to give travel hacking a try, and I haven't looked back since. I'm here to show you that by leveraging credit card welcome offers, you can turn your travel dreams into reality, too!

I went from flying for the first time at 18 years old to now traveling multiple times per year for nearly free...all made possible by points!

Award Travel Academy™ is a self-paced, 100% online program with a blueprint for taking you from confused about how to get started with points and miles or unsure of how to balance travel expenses with your budget...

Emily S.

"With Jess's encouragement and support, I opened up my first travel rewards card in July 2021. In April 2022, my fiancé and I were able to stay at the Grand Hyatt Kauai for free! We saved over $5,000. I couldn't have done it without Jess's help! Jess is communicative, helpful, and supportive. She demystifies the process of travel hacking and is incredibly encouraging. Her content is easy to read and makes the process incredibly simple. I'm just getting started, and can't wait to see where we travel to for free next!"

Madison J.

"I was very hesitant to open up credit cards for the simple idea of traveling for free - it didn’t seem real. I watched every video Jess had and then watched all of the videos she suggested! I was still a little skeptical and reached out to her with questions. Jess has been amazing every step of the way!! We’re planning our first really big trip and will pay almost nothing for it! She’s amazing and I’m so thankful I came across her page."

Katie H.

"With Jess’s guidance and encouragement I became confident in applying for sign up bonuses. As someone with no debt and one credit card for 25 years it was an adjustment, but Jess made me feel safe about my choice to enter the points game. With her guidance, in less than 9 months, my husband and I went to Italy for 16 days and stayed in beautiful hotels in Amalfi, Rome, Tuscany, Lake Garda, and Venice. Jess’s guidance allowed me to get the flight and hotels free, and my credit score is still over 800!"

Brittany M.

"I am so thankful that I came across Jess! I had previously signed up for credit cards with little to no welcome offers and I had no idea I was doing it all wrong! Jess taught me that there’s a better way and I’m so excited to share that I’ve earned welcome bonuses on two new credit cards! I was able to book a birthday trip to NYC for me and my husband with points — our flights and the hotel stay was fully covered!! I can’t wait to sign up for my next card so I can earn another welcome bonus and explore somewhere new! Thank you, Jess!"

Elaine B.

"There are not enough words to describe how grateful I am for the knowledge that Jess has shared about travel hacking!!! My daughter dreamed about going to Washington DC for her birthday but we had already planned a family vacation for 2022. We normally can afford one vacation per year, at best. But I had opened a credit card in 2021 at Jess's recommendation and from those points alone, I was able to book that weekend in Washington DC all on points. It would have cost us over $1500!! Dream come true for my daughter!! I can't wait to travel the world with my family on points and it's all from what Jess has taught me!"
