Spring break on a cash-back credit card

Las Vegas is a very popular Spring Break destination. The MTV Spring Break Las Vegas package costs $199, which gives students access to the Vegas 2012 Palms Casino Resort, MTV castings, entry to private MTV parties and events, as well as free admission and express entry into the most noteable ‘Sin City’ clubs such as Ghost Bar, the Playboy Club and Moon.

With Capital One Journey Student Rewards card the average student can pocket approximately $65 a year to go towards their Spring Break adventure. According to research done by Michael Germanovsky, editor-in-chief at Credit-Land.com – “the average undergraduate student spends approximately $1,200 on textbooks. If this purchase is made with a credit card and immediately paid off, students can pocket approximately $12 from their textbooks. The average undergraduate spends approximately $1,000 on food and gasoline a semester, which can allot to $10 cash-back; and approximately $3,000 cash-back on other necessities including shopping and social activities, which totals about $30 cash-back. If students put this money aside, it can help save them money on their travels.” – says Mr. Germanovsky.

Nevertheless, Spring Break is a well-deserved time for college students to let loose and forget about the pressures of studying, tests, and textbooks. But it doesn’t have to break the bank. Diligent students who have used a good student cash-back credit card such as the Capital One Journey Student Rewards, found it perfect to fund studies and earn some extra cash back, to discount Spring Break.

“The Journey Student Rewards credit card is one of the best student credit cards on the market as it allows college students to receive 1% cash back on all purchases they make throughout the year, including textbooks, gas, food, groceries and other living expenses.” – says Michael.

Another great thing about the Journey Student Rewards credit card is that it`s the only one on the market that gives students a 25% cash-back bonus if students pay their bills on time. Given the spending habits above, the average undergraduate student who pays their bill on time can earn an extra $13 in cash to help them finance their Spring Break trip. Based on the information provided by Credit-Land.com, students can get cash-back amounts to help pay for their hotel stay, airline tickets or travel packages.

Another popular Spring Break locale is the beautiful shores of Panama City, Fl. Panama City is located on the Florida panhandle and is known to be an awesome Spring Break location with its white sandy beaches, crystal blue water and parties galore. Students can get a Student City package to Panama City for approximately $224, but with the cash-back earned from being a diligent credit card user, students can head to Panama City for only $159. This package includes a 7-night stay in Panama City, as well as 15 hours of free beer, access to tons of parties with beer, liquor and free food. The package also includes a Student City wristband, which grants students entry into the best clubs, 18 and up. All at an affordable price when you combine it with the cash earned from the Journey Student Rewards credit card.

Spring Break is coming right around the corner for college students, and a fun time can easily turn into a debt time if proper planning isn’t involved. With expensive plane tickets, vacation packages, and food expenses, Spring Break is not a cheap trip, but there is hope for students who have some credit sense. Using the rewards gained on a student credit card can help send these students embark on a Spring Break vacation of their dreams.
