When good credit pays for a weekend in Palm Beach

I needed to see the beach, like really needed to see the ocean. So I began a Google search for the closest beach with the cheapest air fare. I decided on Palm Beach when I realized I had enough sky miles for a free round trip ticket on Delta airlines.   So plane ticket booked next decision hotel or Airbnb.

I booked a room at Hilton Singer Island Oceanfront Resort which is directly on the beach. I booked this room with my Citi AAdvantage bonus miles (American Airlines MasterCard). My stay came with a daily $50 resort credit, welcome drinks upon arrival, beach chairs with umbrella and free non-motorized sport activities.  


Needless to say I spent the majority of my weekend laid back in a beach chair enjoying some of my favorite frozen rum based cocktails. It sort of felt like I was on a cruise ship without actually being stuck on open water.


The beach is full of sea shells if you like to collect.
The water was nice and warm and I  could see lots of fish swimming all around me.

Palm beach, Florida is a good destination for families, couples, or whoever.
The downtown area is super cute with lots of good shops and restaurants.  The last night I had dinner at Rocco’s Tacos and it was very good. I had the Korean BBQ tacos with kimchi. Flavors I have yet to find in Memphis.

All in all I had a fun weekend getaway in cool laid back Palm Beach. And the best part IT WAS FREE! Paid with bonus miles from my credit cards.  Since everybody is talking about credit even Jay-Z add travel to the list of perks. GOOD CREDIT PAYS OFF!
