The person I regularly travel with is not a cards/points persons. I would like to make some suggestions to them so we could afford a two week trip to Asia as our next big trip. I am slowing working to accumulate enough points that I will have enough miles for an economy or business ticket to Asia. There are several limitations for this person. They don't make a lot of money, they cannot afford to spend $1,000 a month of spending requirements for cards such as the Sapphire Preferred, they don't pay utilities except cell phone, their rent is paid in cash (landlord's preference), not a lot of extra cash to do some of the more exotic things such as the US Airways Grand Slam, and they don't travel for work so not a lot of chances to spend a lot on cards each month. I know they have a Freedom card. Any suggestions to work on getting enough points for an economy ticket to Asia in about 1.5 years? I will probably cover all of the hotels with my points.
