We took a roadtrip up the iconic California Pacific Coast Highway (California 1)…but here’s the catch: we attempted to cover our flights, accommodations, car rental, gas and activities using ONLY points and miles on three credit cards. We leverage the Chase Sapphire Preferred, Capitol One Venture X and American Express Blue Cash Preferred to make it all happen.

Watch to see how we fared!
