Taking steps toward adulthood can be rewarding in more ways than one. Here’s how to earn points and miles while paying utility bills, tuition and more.

From vacations with friends and extended family to the occasional school trip, we often find ourselves traveling in larger groups. While group trips can be an absolute blast, there’s always a moment when we find ourselves questioning whether or not it’s worth the effort.
