Support Miles To The Wild

If you enjoy this blog and would like to support MTTW, there are a few ways you can help.


I have an affiliate relationship with and Scottevest.  If you use my links to begin your shopping I get a small commission at no added cost to yourself.


I don’t have any kind of marketing relationship with these companies.  I joined some time ago using someone else’s referral link and now have links of my own.  If you use my link to join, you will get some kind of bonus as detailed below and then you will get a link of your own to share.  If there are any really good promos on, I will usually blog about them seperately.

UBER – Usually you get $10, a free ride or more depending on what deal they have going.  I get $10 in my account.

POINTSHOUND – We both get 250 miles in any of their partner airlines after your first booking.

ROCKETMILES – We both get 1000 miles in any of their partner airlines after your first booking.

TOPCASHBACK – We both get $10 free cashback in our accounts.  To receive your Tell-a-Friend bonus, the person you have referred must sign up to TopCashback from your link and earn $10.00 payable cashback or more. View the full Tell-a-Friend Terms and Conditions.

COPY.COM – Cloud storage, we both get an extra 5GB when you use my link.  Max of 25GB per account via referral bonuses.


Occasionally Chase and Amex have promos where people who have certain cards can refer other people by an email invitation.  The inviter gets a specified number of points and the invitee (you) gets a good sign up bonus.  An example is you get 40,000 Ultimate Rewards + 5000 if you add an authorized user and I get 5000 Ultimate Rewards for inviting you to get a Chase Sapphire Preferred.  Deals vary and are not available year round but if you email me I can tell you what I have.  The cards I sometimes have invitations for are:

Chase Sapphire Preferred

Chase Freedom

Amex SPG (USA)

Amex Platinum Reserve (and other Aussie Amexes)

If you are considering one of these cards and would like an invitation, please contact me on tara at


Don’t send it to me.  The whole reason I got into eco-tourism is because I am passionate about birds and parrots in particular.  If you are feeling generous, please send a donation to World Parrot Trust.  You can either donate to their general fund or choose a species to direct your donation to.

Thank you in advance if you decide to use any of these links, I do appreciate it!  Even if you don’t, thank you for reading my blog and I hope you have some great birding & ecotourism adventures and I can be of some inspiration to you.

  • I received the “Brian at The Gate. My comment on the elephant post went to your spam folder (not moderation). Please un-spam it.” tweet. Could you please post it again? It appears to have disappeared; but I will still try to find your comment, as I am interested in what you have to say. I apologize for any inconvenience. — Brian.
