Welcome (welcome back for some) to The Short Final!

I’m Dom and I started this blog back in 2016 as a contributor to TravelUpdate and recently was given the opportunity to move on to my own independent blog under BoardingArea’s Prior2Boarding. I couldn’t be more excited!

First, a bit about me. In my day job, I’m a consultant and travel often for work. I choose to maximize my points and miles during my business travels so that I can enjoy my personal time without breaking the bank. I see it as my reward for having to be away from home so much.

People have asked me why I take the time to write this blog. 

The reason is simple.

I write content not only for you but for myself. By researching and writing posts, I learn a ton about earning and burning points and miles as efficiently as possible. It’s a way to force myself to be continually learning, and we’re all on this journey together.

The content I produce will be geared towards helping you live a fuller life through travel. There are a ton of other bloggers out there who cover the nitty-gritty details and breaking news stories way better than I ever could so my goal isn’t to regurgitate.

My plan is to provide you with applicable content such as how-to guides, destination inspiration, and analytics.

I’ve kicked off this site with what I feel is a good baseline of the type of content you can expect from me. I’ve had some pretty good reaction to it and I’m always willing to try new things. Just let me know what you would like to see!

I want this blog to be a place for all of us to learn together. Win-win for both of us!

Much love, all, and thank you for reading!

Hello Dom,

Congrats! May be you can share some details on how/where the Hilton resort credit can be used with the new credit card. I don’t think anyone got a full review of that card yet.

I’ve been looking to share my travels for some time now, but have not found a good platform yet.
