Jess Farley

Senior Contributor and Compliance Team Lead

 

Jess is a long-time member of the AwardWallet family, joining the team in 2016. Hailing from New Zealand, Jess studied frequent flyer programs in-depth to reduce costs while traveling full-time with his wife and young son.

 

Interested in adventure and experience-based travel, he primarily uses points and miles to transport his wife and kids between family in New Zealand, his home in Australia, and whatever adventure he can dream up in Asia. His favorite travel experiences include traveling through the highlands of Tibet with his wife and son, and an extended winter stay in a cabin in the mountains of Nagano, Japan.

 

When he’s not banging pen and paper together for AwardWallet, you’ll find Jess nerding out on Forex charts, running trails, competing in Ironman, cooking up a storm, doing yoga, or traveling with his young family. Jess is currently based in the Sunshine Coast, Queensland, Australia.

Last Chance to Earn up to 100,000 United Miles

The United co-branded credit cards are currently offering limited-time offers of up to 100,000 bonus miles! Even if you fly United just a few times per year, you can get outsized value from these cards thanks to their perks and benefits. But don’t wait—these offers are set to disappear on September 30, 2020.

Chase Business Cards: Ink Preferred vs. Ink Cash vs. Ink Unlimited

Chase currently offers three rewards cards for small business owners, the Ink Cash, Ink Cash, and Ink Preferred.

All-Time-High 80,000 Point Bonus for Chase Sapphire Preferred

The Chase Sapphire Preferred® Card has come out with an all-time-high 80,000 point welcome bonus.

Book Hidden Award Space with the United Credit Cards

The United co-brand cards offer great benefits like free checked bags, complimentary United Club access, and priority boarding. But possibly the cards’ most valuable perk is poorly understood and often overlooked: Cardholders get access to extra award seats that aren’t available to everyone else.
