FinCon 2015 was held in Charlotte, NC at the Westin Charlotte from September 17-20, but we’ll soon have an article for 2016 in San Diego! If you’re looking to cut down on the cost of attending the event you can use credit card rewards points to dramatically slash your hotel and airline expense — possibly down to $0 with the right credit cards.
For those of you unfamiliar with the world of travel rewards points and miles: You open targeted credit cards that offer large ‘signup bonuses’ when you hit specific ‘minimum spending requirements’ (an example would be to spend $3,000 cumulatively in the first 3 months your account is open).
Once you meet those spending requirements (and pay off the cards on time and in full every month!) you then take these signup bonuses and turn them into nearly free travel. This works for nearly any trip you have planned and FinCon is certainly no exception!
