I’m a big proponent of traveling with just a carry-on luggage and backpack. Especially when I know that I’ll be moving from place to place, and taking lots of different types of public transportation. Having a carry-on with spinner wheels have afforded me and my family to do that.
If you’re not picky with picking a luggage, here’s a carry-on luggage that won’t break the bank. It’s perfect for your travels, and have been known as “surprisingly durable and highly recommended for the price.”
Mojo Carry-on luggage for as low as $21.99

I wrote different entries on How We Travel for Nearly Free, and most recently, I updated my favorite travel credit cards. However, there was always one card that stood out, perfect for a lot of those who are just starting out.
As I mentioned before from our last trip to Japan, it was thanks to points earned with our Chase Sapphire Reserve, and Chase Sapphire Preferred (click here).
We used 37,000 Chase Ultimate Rewards, easily earned when you apply for those credit cards and when Chase awards you the sign-up bonus. The Chase Sapphire Preferred (click here) is a perfect starter card. With its 60,000 bonus points, those points alone have gotten us two tickets to Hawaii, just as an example. The sign up bonus alone can be worth as much as $1,000 or more in travel.
– 60,000 Ultimate Rewards sign up bonus after $4,000 in spend in the first three months (as of April 2019 – this is subject to change)
– Points are transferable to:
- Hotel Partners
- Airline travel partners
- United Airlines
- British Airways
- Southwest Airlines
- Singapore Airlines
- Flying Blue
- Virgin Atlantic
- Aer Lingus
– Points are worth 1.25 cents each when redeemed through the Ultimate Rewards travel portal
– Primary rental car collision damage waiver
– Earn 2X points on all travel and dining
– $95 annual fee (as of April 2019 – this is subject to change)
If I were just starting out in earning miles and points, I suggest starting out with this card.
You can also earn these Ultimate Rewards from other Chase credit cards such as the:
- Chase Freedom Earn $150 bonus (click for more details)
- Chase Freedom Unlimited
- Chase Ink Business PreferredEarn 80,000 Chase Ultimate Rewards
- Chase Ink Cash
The points earned with Chase are one of my prized points-earning possessions. They’ve allowed us travel to many parts of the world for nearly free.
For this latest trip to Japan where we will be flying first class, I give credit to points earned with our American Express Cards. Nancy and I took advantage of the 100,000 points sign-up bonus with American Express Platinum cards, and we signed up for the other cards that offered lucrative sign ups. Follow the links to the cards, and know that in order to get the bonus points, you have meet the required spending. Some of these cards also have annual fees:
- Earn 75,000 Membership Rewards
- Earn 75,000 Membership Rewards
- Earn 10,000 Membership Rewards
- Earn 15,000 Membership Rewards
