Meet Summer Hull (Mommy Points): Your Personal Expert in Travel Deals and Rewards

Filed Under: Deals, United States

Meet your personal guide to the world of travel deals and rewards -- Summer Hull, aka Mommy Points. This self-proclaimed travel addict -- and pointaholic -- is here to let travelers in on a little secret: You can snag the best travel bargains, you just have to know where to look.

Summer knows all about travel deals -- ask her how she once snagged a luxury suite in Colorado for just $100 a night!

This Texas native first got a taste for accruing miles and points during her college days at the University of Texas. Her interest kicked into high gear several years later when she became a parent. Summer wanted a way to keep her young daughter connected to out-of-state family -- without breaking the bank. So began a personal mission to find the best travel deals while balancing other work-life demands. That personal mission led Summer to launch the travel deals blog Mommy Points in May 2011.

Now Summer is bringing her best tips on accruing miles and points to an even larger audience. With her new web series Family Travel Deals, Summer provides expert travel-bargain tips while shattering a few misconceptions. The biggest, says Summer, is that miles and points are worthless or impossible to redeem.

From choosing the best rewards-earning credit cards to knowing when the time’s right to redeem miles and points, get Summer’s best tips on navigating the world of deals and rewards, and don’t forget to check out more new talent on!
