    Just returned from a family trip to Hawaii and was pondering if we could have done it cheaper. Started looking around and discovered this forum and some blogs, all of which I am sure you guys are familiar with. Realized I just spent a lot of money I didn't need to spend. Oh well. Live and Learn. That won't happen again.

    From the East Coast US. usually fly out of EWR, but also use PHL, ABE, JFK, LGA

    I know nothing in life is free, but sometimes it can be a whole lot cheaper!

    Retiring young in 2 1/2 years and plan to travel a whole lot more.

    We usually take one monster vacation and 2-3 smaller trips a year. I do not travel for business.

    Trips I hope to make (I guess these are my goals and what I'll be working toward)
    - back to Hawaii
    - back to Tahiti (we went 20 years ago for our honeymoon)
    - Dive trip with the family to Papua New Guinea.

    Working on signing up for everything I need to, looking into app-o-rama, checking out matrix iTA and reading all the boards, hints, tips etc.

    All advice accepted and appreciated.

    Check your credit at Credit Karma, and see where you stand..

    Applying for credit cards seems to be the fastest way.
