The Frequent Miler team is ready for our next challenge!  While Carrie and Tim can’t join us in the field this time, Nick, Stephen and I are ready to compete.  The challenge goal?  Book an amazing 3-continent dream-trip using 3 welcome bonuses.  As we’ve done before, we’ll have a strict budget, we’ll have strict rules, and readers will pick the winner once we’ve completed our trips.

To start things off, we first held a live-streamed draft where each of us picked 3 credit card welcome offers that will make up our travel budget.  No bonus could be picked twice. You can watch the card draft here.

With our cards selected, the competitors now must book the most impressive trip they can with the bonuses and perks gained from those cards. Travel is set for mid September, with exact dates to be announced later.
