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 if you just 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!

The 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 she began a personal mission to find the best travel deals while balancing other work and life demands. That led her 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 TravelChannel.com web series Family Travel Deals, she provides expert travel-bargain tips while shattering a few misconceptions. The biggest, she says, is that miles and points are worthless or impossible to redeem.

From choosing the best rewards-earning credit cards to knowing when the time is right to save money on a family trip to New York City, get Summer’s best tips on navigating the world of deals and rewards.
