Do you ever get jealous of people who live a lavish lifestyle? You don’t need to win the lottery to live like a millionaire. If you’re smart, you’ll be able to treat yourself to luxuries without getting into debt.
We’ll look at a few hacks you should test out within the next year or two. Maybe they’ll give you the motivation you need to become very successful. I’m sure you’ll think of even more cool ways to game the system.
1. Flying In A Private Jet
If a private jet flies into a city without passengers, it’s called an empty leg flight. It’s sometimes impossible to avoid because charter companies don’t have jets sitting at every airport in the world.
It’s worth calling up companies to see if any are available. You’ll be offered a steep discount if you find a suitable empty leg flight. Unfortunately, you won’t have complete freedom to fly anywhere you want.
2. Exchange Skills For Favors
It’s possible to ask for favors if you have a valuable skill. Are there any exclusive golf courses where you live? Even if you have lots of money in the bank, it’s unlikely you’ll be able to book a tee time.
It’s better to find out who works at the course. A roofer could offer to repair all their roofs for a round of golf. Some people will be willing to trade skills for favors, but you’ll never know unless you ask.
3. Offering Positive Reviews
If you don’t have any skills to offer, you might be able to help promote businesses. You must have a decent following on social media platforms, like YouTube and Instagram. Larger followings mean better opportunities.
Find out what you want and reach out to companies that offer it. If you focus on creating an audience, people will start reaching out to you. It’s possible to get trips abroad, meals in fancy restaurants, and much more.
4. Ask For A Good Discount
Westerners are used to paying whatever price is displayed on items, but other countries are skilled in the art of haggling. If you don’t like the cost of something, it’s okay to ask the seller for a discount before walking away.
It’s probably not a good idea in big chain stores, but independent business owners could be interested if they’ll still make a profit. If you ask for a discount on something very expensive, it could save you thousands.
5. Buying At The Last Minute
Wait until the last minute before paying for certain products. Have you ever bought meat from the supermarket at night? Instead of throwing everything out, companies will reduce the price of food to tempt potential buyers.
It works with things like hotel rooms too. If hotels don’t rent out a fancy room, it will just sit empty, so you’ll get a good deal. There are actually apps that help you look for amazing last-minute offers.
Living The High Life
It takes lots of creativity to live a luxury life on a budget. I’m sure you’ll be able to come up with even more ideas in the future.
