Scholarship Contest Details

Take a photo from vacation and write the destination, how you got there, and any tricks you used to save money (Any way you save money traveling counts, this can be carpooling, finding a great deal on a hotel or Air BnB, staying with friends or family, using credit card reward points or any other money-saving tricks you’ve tried!) Our favorites will be featured on the site and the winner will receive a $500 scholarship!

*Any vacation photo taken in the last two years is eligible. Although all photographs taken from any advice are eligible, we are mainly looking for pictures that showcase a scene at a destination. So selfies and pictures that are heavily filtered are unlikely to win or be featured.

This scholarship is open to candidates from the U.S. only. Please keep in mind that because we receive so many applications, we are not able to respond to each and every submission and will not do so unless your entry is featured on the site or you are the winner of the scholarship.

About the Credit Card Resource Center

People have been asking Johnny for advice on rewards credit cards for years. Over the years, Johnny and the team have made hundreds of credit card guides. We’ve written so many that those guides can be hard to find on Johnnyjet.com, so we made a new section on the website so readers can find them easier.

Here, you can find up to date guides for travel rewards credit cardssmall business credit cardsairline credit cards, and hotel rewards credit cards.

We frequently update our picks for the best travel rewards credit cards, best small business rewards credit cards, best credit cards for travel miles, best credit cards for purchasing flights, and best credit cards for international travel.
