If the previous slide didn't sell you on carrying multiple rewards cards, perhaps this one will. Sojka points out that the most efficient way to maximize travel points is by performing the "double dip," that lucrative, if elusive, consumer strategy. The double dip is the practice of achieving twice the rewards miles on one purchase. So, if you're buying groceries, for example, pay for your food and drink with a credit card that offers rewards points, but also swipe an Air Miles or Aeroplan card during the same transaction, a method many retailers accept. Rarer is the "triple dip," which happens when airlines or hotels offer extra miles for booking online. So, the triple dip in that case would be the miles or points earned by buying online, the miles or points earned by using your credit card as well as the miles or points earned when you take the actual flight or stay in your hotel.

The government of Kiribati recently declared a 12-nautical-mile fishing exclusion zone around each of the five islands, thanks in part to the efforts of National Geographic's Pristine Seas initiative and Explorer-in-Residence Enric Sala, who led a research expedition there in 2009. "Diving at the southern Line Islands reveals what the seas once were, in all their richness and wonder," says Sala. "Coming here has reset our entire understanding of what's natural, and has given us a new baseline against which to measure healthy and unhealthy reefs everywhere."
