When we launched TPG Family in July 2018, our goal was to show you how use points and miles to make family travel easier, more accessible and more enjoyable. Traveling with kids can be frustrating and exhausting at times, but TPG Family editor Summer Hull, aka Mommy Points, doesn’t want to just help you maximize your miles to take a family vacation. She also wants to make sure you’ve got the right tools for the job. That’s why we’re launching “Are We There Yet?” — a monthly YouTube series with Summer and some special guests testing out the top family travel gear.

EPISODE 01

From gear like the Trunki suitcase you see little kids riding around on in the airport to the Doona stroller that doubles as a carseat, we’ll show you how to assemble the gear and whether the product is worth the investment. All new “Are We There Yet?” episodes drop on the last Tuesday of every month, so be sure to subscribe and let us know what family travel gear you want reviewed next.

Was the Trunki a “must buy” or a “flunky”?

Each month, The Bank of America® Cash Rewards credit card allows families to earn 3% cash back in the category of their choosing: Gas, Online Shopping, Dining, Travel, Drug Stores or Home Improvement/Furnishings. Now you don’t need multiple cards in your wallet to maximize rewards on your ever-changing expenses.
