Here’s a quick tip to finding the funds you need to adopt…get a “his” and “hers” credit card with a company that offers a rewards program. Two nationwide companies that offer this are Capital One (with their Venture card), and Wells Fargo.
You will want to use these credit cards for everyday living expenses such as groceries and gas. Doing so, you’ll gain “miles” that can be used towards adoption travel. One adoptive couple shared that the Capital One Venture cards they have give them two miles for every dollar they spend. And, there are no blackout dates (dates during which you cannot travel). Many of these companies will also reward your account with thousands of points, just for opening your accounts!
