In a nutshell, it goes like this: earn miles for free or cheaply using credit cards, and use them for free flights and hotel. I cannot stress fiscal responsibility enough!

Ultimately, this hobby is what you make it. You can be as crazy as we are and have over 30 open credit card accounts and 1.3 million miles and points banked, or you could make do with a couple useful cards that let you travel for free once a year.
