Have you gotten into travel hacking? One way travelers can afford all their luxury vacations is by credit card hacking — responsibly, of course! Major credit card companies allow users to gain points in exchange for purchases. As a result, those points accumulate, and users can exchange them for various products from flights, hotels, and rental cars. 

Most credit card companies allow you to earn points on everyday items like food and shopping. However, a new card recently came out that is the first loyalty card that allows users to earn points simply by paying rent!
