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.

United Business Card Review

The new United℠ Business Card is a great value for anyone who flies with United at least a few times per year. Benefits include free checked bags, access to extra award space (only open to United elites and co-brand cardholders), and 5,000 bonus miles every account anniversary if you also hold a United personal card. Check out our full review for all the details.

Capital One Venture Rewards Credit Card Review

The Capital One Venture Rewards Credit Card is a great fit for anyone who likes having a super-easy option to redeem rewards at a fair value. This card earns 2X miles on every dollar spent and has two great ways to redeem: Use points to pay yourself back for any travel purchase, or choose from 15 Capital One transfer partners and squeeze even more value out of every mile.

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.
