Ep: #33 Have you ever wanted to travel the world without spending a ton of money? How about receiving an upgrade worth thousands of dollars with points and miles earned?
In this week’s episode on the Budget Divas podcast, my guest is Eli Tsukayama. Eli is a marketing professor at the University of Hawaii and holds a PhD in psychology. When he is not working at his full-time job, he enjoys traveling around the world. Eli’s hobby is travel hacking which allows him to travel elite without spending a ton of money.

Eli first thought this was too good to be true but soon learned how to maximize his credit card points to get the best travel deals including incredible airline upgrades such as private rooms with amenities that most airlines do not have.
In this episode, Eli shares tips on how to travel hack and get the most bang for your buck.
