This really works!!

I discovered Lyn’s website two years ago, and my husband and I have been flying free ever since! I am a frugal couponer, too, and her ideas are so practical and helpful. Lyn’s attention to detail helps answer most questions I have had, and you can reach out to her personally if you have further questions. I highly recommend you checking out these podcasts and begin your travel adventures with little to no cost!!

Great tips

I’ve listened to a couple podcasts and both had great insights to traveling at very low costs or even no costs.
Looking forward to listening more...I’m a somewhat savvy traveler already but that’s why I want to listen more - you never know where that great learning experience will come from and this podcast certainly has tips that can be applied at all levels.

Flying free

Have been using Lyn’s website and newsletter for a while now, and the podcast adds another great resource to learn about earning frequent flyer miles with ways in which you are already spending money. She explains things in a simple and straightforward format. Looking forward to the next podcast!
