Hi I’m Lisette Austin. I’m a working mom and wife who loved to travel, but couldn’t always afford the international trips I craved. In 2012 I learned how to rack up millions of airline miles and hotel points using only my good credit score and regular household spending. Learning how to “travel hack” has currently saved me almost $90K in travel costs, allowed me to visit 22 countries, and opened the door to luxury travel experiences.
Since 2013 I’ve been teaching how to earn hundreds of thousands of miles and points using travel credit cards sign up bonuses. In 2017 I launched my first online course, Jet Set 101: Becoming a Travel Hacker. I’m also the host of The Globetrotter Lounge podcast, interviewing inspiring women who have found creative ways to travel more.
A few bonus facts:
I run a web design business, have decades of experience in academic research, and have been a dancer since I could walk. I’m fluent in French, speak conversational Portuguese and get by with Spanish. Top of my bucket list is studying Flamenco dance in Spain, living in Paris for at least 6 months and doing an around-the-world trip. For now, I live in the Seattle area with my photographer husband and teenage son.
