An avid traveler, Matt is always eager to go new places, and his mantra is that he can’t come home from a trip without another one booked to look forward too! His favorite destinations include Bermuda, Turks & Caicos and Australia.

Since diving into points and miles in 2015, Matt and his wife Ashley regularly generate well over 1 million points per year each via credit card bonuses and mileage promos. In addition to helping MileValue readers learn and understand the world of points and miles, Matt enjoys being an unofficial credit card consultant to a growing number of friends and family.

Travis Cormier
Contributor & Award Booker

Travis became addicted to travel after his first international trip to Nicaragua in 2016. He wanted to travel more but didn’t want to pay for it. He found points and miles, and hasn’t paid cash for a trip since.

A self-proclaimed adventurer and beach-bum, Travis is often found at remote island destinations and beaches with scuba gear in tow. If you don’t spot him on a beach, look for somewhere with good wine or a few Michelin stars and you’ll likely find him there.
