10,000 Subscribers! | Time to Celebrate with an Amazon Gift Card Giveaway!

Hey, how's it going everyone? Its Ernest from Trip Astute I'm very excited today to announce that we've reached 10,000 subscribers, which means it's time to celebrate with another big giveaway

(light chiming music) This week we reached our subscriber goal for this year, which is 10,000 subscribers I really appreciate all the support Getting to 10,000 subscribers was my channel goal for this year and I'm happy to reach this milestone a month early If you're wondering why it matters, having more subscribers not only allows us to share information with others and grow our community online, but also gives us additional credibility when we work with brands who not only provide products to review, but often give us products for giveaways for you all So to celebrate this milestone, we're doing another giveaway for Amazon gift cards

We're giving away five $20 gift cards It's our way of saying thank you to all of you for helping us to grow as a channel The giveaway runs from today to Friday, December 14, 2018 We'll randomly pick five winners and announce them the following weekend We'll then contact each winner via email to confirm their contact information then send over a $20 Amazon gift card

The giveaway is open to everyone, not just folks in the US We recently had a lot of subscribers from outside of the US, particularly the UK, so we're excited to be connecting with folks outside of our home country You don't have to purchase anything, but there are multiple ways to enter and gain entries By signing up for some of our social media channels, you'll not only earn an extra entry into the contest, but you'll also get content that we share outside of our videos All you have to do is click on any or all the options to enter

The more options you complete, the more entries you'll earn And of course, there's no pressure to enter I'll include a link in the video description Also, I want to give you a heads up on some updates to our channel One, we want to start sharing stories from folks in our community, especially when it comes to points and miles

If you're interested in sharing what cards you have and what you've been able to achieve with them, I'd love to feature your story and also let you know what I think of your card setup and strategy I think it might be a fun way to share experiences and perhaps spark ideas with others in the community Just head over to our website and click on the share your travels/ point story link to access our questionnaire Secondly, I finally got an American Express card I know a lot of my points of miles videos have been focused on Chase cards, and many of you have been asking me to do similar videos on American Express

I'm already starting to think through some topics to cover on the Membership Rewards program, so stay tuned Lastly, we get a lot of emails from people asking us for our opinion on certain cards and recommendations on applications I've been trying to think of a way that we can provide additional value through our channel and site, and I think it would be great to offer a free credit card consulting service Basically, all you need to do is fill out a form, schedule a 15-minute call with me, and I'll give you a free recommendation based on your travel goals and card strategy I'm still working through some of the logistics, but stay tuned for an announcement on it soon

Again, a big thank you to everyone for helping us to get to this milestone We look forward to celebrating our next big goal, which I guess is 20,000 subscribers Until next time, travel safe and travel smart
