One of the easiest ways you can earn hundreds of extra dollars during your journey is to open one or more credit cards that have a bonus attached based on amount of spending in your first few months.
It is known as “churning” and involves opening a credit card or two where spending $1,000 or $3,000 within three months can yield a $500 bonus or more depending on the card. While credit card debt is one of the worst ways to be in debt, “churning” is one of the best and easiest ways for you to make money during your Medical Travel.
Naturally, if you have better credit the more likely you would be able to qualify for a better card with a better initial sign-up bonus. However, unless you have particularly poor credit, you should be able to qualify for one or two cards that contain a bonus for spending within the first three months.
What the best cards are for bonuses change month to month, however here are my favorite sites for finding an appropriate credit card.
Two things to remember:
Many of these cards carry an annual fee. Paying an annual fee is not in any of our interests and certainly does not help you make money. Be sure when you sign up to add a notification into your phone/calendar about a month before your year is up to cancel the card. Do not apply for a card in which you have to pay the fee upfront, only after one year.
Second, make sure you pay off the balance. In some cases, carrying a balance will negate the spending bonus. So once the bill comes due, just make sure you set your account to auto-pay your credit card in full.
I mentioned during my Grabr post, using Grabr with your new credit card is a great way in which you can achieve your early three/six month spending threshold. While you are shopping for electronics equipment for people in your destination country, use the credit cards you just received to achieve your targeted spending threshold. In addition to Grabr, you can use your credit card on your airfare,hotel, and possibly your Medical Treatment assuming the destination Doctor accepts credit cards.
I hope presenting this option helps you make Medical Travel even more affordable and less daunting. If you thought this information was helpful, come by our Youtube channel, where we give away more valuable information for your medical journey.
