I went here, I went there, I went everywhere [on points] and my sister was never impressed. She like most of my friends and family really didn’t buy into the points idea or was suspicious as to its legality. Then Memorial Day weekend came and I left…to Costa Rica.
“This is the first time I’ve been impressed with your points crap,” she halfheartedly complimented. Why when I showed her pictures of Maldives and her dream bungalow was she so excited by this trip? Because it was booked at the 11th hour and 59th minute for basically free. I say basically because of all these stupid fees, hidden taxes, and ridiculous charges imposed by taxis, Frontier Airlines, and the country of Costa Rica which will be addressed in tomorrow’s blog. For now, let’s focus on the Pura Vida (pure life) way that I got to go on this great impromptu trip for mere pennies.
Forget 30 Days to Maldives, you can get to Costa Rica in about 30 minutes of work.
Step 1: Apply for the Frontier Airlines Card
Step 2: Spend $500 on the card.
Step 3: Receive 40k miles, enough for a roundtrip ticket to Costa Rica!
Then live the Pura Vida while doing your best Tarzan impression following the superman zipline experience.
