If you know me, you know I love to stay in Airbnbs while I travel. You can use Airbnb to stay at some amazing places all over the world and you can also build extra side income simply by being an Airbnb host. What would you say if I told you how to earn $300 today from using this platform?

Would you want to know more? 

I believe most people would be super happy with an extra $300 in their pocket at the end of today.

So let's talk about all the Airbnb hacks I have up my sleeve!

Your Airbnb Hacks!

Wouldn't you want to stay in this amazing Villa in Bali for free?

Not only does staying in an Airbnb provide you with a more local travel experience, but you can rent an entire apartment for less than a room at a budget hotel typically. I would be silly to not use Airbnb. And since I am seriously obsessed with Airbnb (and now Airbnb experiences too!), I have a $30 Airbnb coupon code for you on your next booking. 

How to Get Your $30 Airbnb Coupon Code

If you already have an account with Airbnb, simply click here and sign up with a different email address to claim another Airbnb coupon code.

Want even More Airbnb Credits?

Who doesn't love more credit to use on Airbnb, right? Airbnb works on a referral basis. Meaning, every time you refer one of your friends to use Airbnb, you will both get credit to use on the platform. I don't know about you, but I love free money to spend! And since Airbnb is literally my favorite place to stay, it's a win win for both parties involved!

So, there are two amazing options here for referrals that I want you to know about and utilize!

1. REFER SOMEONE TO BE AN AIRBNB HOST & Earn $300 currently!

Login to Airbnb, hover over your profile picture in the top right hand corner and this time click on "Refer Hosts."

From here, you will find your personal referral URL that you can email to your friends, family, and network and also share on Facebook.

Now for referring hosts, you will currently earn $300 for referring a new host. Say what?!? I know! Get on it! Seriously, I don't know who wouldn't want an extra $300 today.

I loved staying at this cozy Airbnb in Hanoi


Login to Airbnb, hover over your profile picture in the top right hand corner and click on "Invite Friends."

Again, from here, you will find your personal referral URL that you can email to your friends, family, and network and also share on Facebook.

For every friend that you successfully refer, you get half the amount in Airbnb credit to use at a different place anywhere in the world!

So if you refer someone and they get $30 in Airbnb credit, you will get $15! Sometimes, this even is a larger credit like $20.

How to Get Started on Airbnb

Now that you are set up with your Airbnb code, let's talk about how to book your first stay. If you are new to Airbnb, and do not yet have any references, I recommend these important steps: 

  • Upload a profile picture (preferably one that is only of you and semi-normal looking!)
  • Verify your ID
  • Add a short introduction about yourself. Allow your personality to shine through!

These are important steps so that hosts approve you. Someone who is letting you into their personal space will want to know something about you. Right? Human nature.

So make sure you fill out a personable profile that shows why someone should rent to you and how you will be a responsible guest!

How to Pick a Good Airbnb Rental

Everyone travels different, that's for sure. But not every Airbnb is going to be a good fit for you. Make sure and do your research beforehand to void any unnecessary surprises. 

1. Consider Your Booking Needs

I speak from experience on this one. I've never had a bad stay per say, but I have had reasons I've booked a particular Airbnb (like the time I booked solely wanting a pool and a gym) and neither were available. Not horrible obviously, but good to ask questions ahead of time if this is the only reason you are booking someone's place. 

Some thoughts to consider: 

  • Do you want your own place or a room in a house?
  • Do you need really fast WiFi to work?
  • Do you want a kitchen?
  • Do you want public transportation nearby?

There are many factors to consider when booking and once you narrow down your priorities for your trip, you can use the filters on Airbnb. Simply use the buttons at the top to filter based on your needs and priorities. 

2. Read Reviews

I absolutely love this aspect of Airbnb. Obviously some people are disgruntled in general and nothing is ever going to make them happy, but for the most part I find Airbnb to be such a great community of people that are genuinely grateful for people opening up their homes! 

Look through the reviews and see what kind of vibe you get. Are the reviews consistent? Are people happy staying there? Are pictures the same as what people describe their stay as?

3. Read the rules of the place

Having stayed at a ridiculous amount of Airbnbs now, I can tell you that every place has different rules. Make sure and read them ahead of time so that there are not surprises! 

With this comes items such as security deposits, cancellation policies, cleaning fees, etc. These are all outlined on each listing, so make sure you read the fine print.


You will not be able to see the exact address of the property before you book it, but you will be able to zoom in on the location and see the radius within several blocks. If location is super important to you, make sure and look at this before you book.

5. ask the host for the best deal

Although this is often not possible, you will never know if you do not ask. I would only recommend asking for a discount if it is a week or so before your trip. Otherwise you are almost sure to get a no out of the host.

One thing to keep in mind if you ask for a discount is that they may deny you from staying at their place at all, so consider your options before asking! 

With that said, many hosts will already offer a discount if you are booking for an extended period of time. So if you are booking somewhere for at least 2 weeks, this is something to both look for in your booking and ask about if it is not already listed.

This is a newer setup for Airbnb, but one that I personally love. I took an amazing authentic Vietnamese cooking class in Ho Chi Minh and most recently had a fabulous photoshoot in Penang, Malaysia.

Simply hit on "Experiences" when you land on Airbnb either through the homepage or on your app. 

There are truly endless options now in cities all over the world from surfing lessons, to photography classes, to food tours, and so much more! I'm currently trying to figure out how to start running gluten-free food tours!


I find that Airbnb hosts are super responsive to questions. I used to LOVE hosting and always welcomed questions.

Hosts want to know that you will take good care of their home, so they should welcome your questions. If they don't, that's usually a red flag to me. 

But with that, make sure you are doing your due diligence and reading what is already available on their listing before asking questions. Again, utilize reviews to find answers to questions you might have as well.

8. Leave a Review

This is really important for Airbnb both for the hosts and for future guests. Taking 3 to 5 minutes to leave a helpful and thorough review after your stay will be no doubt appreciated by your host. And again, future guests will appreciate it as well.

Airbnb will send you a reminder after you check-out to create a review.

Pro tip: if you see major room for improvement, send the host a private note with your suggestions. Don't leave it on the public comments. Good travel karma!

Plus, if you are full of complaining reviews, future hosts can see this and may not be so apt to let you stay at their place. Yes, be honest, but again consider if it needs to be left on a public review or not when leaving your review.

Gluten is in way more places than bread, pasta, and pizza. Have you gone gluten-free because of celiac disease or some other reason? Let’s talk about 13 surprising places gluten hides and it most likely is not where you think.

If you’re new to the gluten free life but know a bit about it, chances are good you know to avoid pizza, pasta, burgers, etc. But do you know all the other hidden spots gluten tends to hide?

13 Surprising Places Gluten Hides

And remember: Wheat free does not automatically mean gluten free. Always read labels carefully.

1. Soy Sauce

Normal soy sauce contains wheat and it will be listed in the ingredients. Gluten-free soy sauce does exist so you can always ask at restaurants, or buy at the grocery store.

Looking for a gluten-free soy sauce? Check out this one!

2. Cereals

Some cereals, particularly rice based cereals that one would think are gluten free are not. An example of this is Kellogg’s Rice Krispie’s have malt flavor in them. Remember gluten is anything with wheat, rye, or barley. Malt is made from barley. So make sure anytime you are buying cereal that you ensure that it is in fact gluten free.

3. Candy Bars

Many candy bars are gluten free, but make sure and always read labels. One example is holiday candy bars of regularly gluten free candies are not always gluten free when they make a snack size or holiday version. I’m not sure why this is, but ensure you read labels always!

4. Deli Meats

Some deli meats are gluten free and labeled as such. Others are not and need to be checked carefully. Whenever you are buying deli meat, make sure you ask a team member to change their gloves and clean the slicer as well. Sometimes you can buy pre-packaged deli meat that is clearly labeled as gluten free and will not have the chance of cross contamination.

Gluten can hide at the deli meat counter 5. Make-up

Make-up such as foundation, lipstick, etc can have gluten in it. Make sure that you are always reading your labels of everything and anything!

6. Shampoo

Again, this is a rather frustrating one that companies put gluten in items such as shampoo but you need to check all ingredients of your products to make sure they are entirely gluten free.

7. Pots & Pans

Do you share a kitchen with someone that eats gluten? Cross contamination can hide or happen if you share pots and pans or items like toasters. I would recommend having a separate set of pots and pans for yourself if you share a kitchen with someone that eats gluten. You can never be too careful!

8. Grills

Think that the heat of a grill will kill all the gluten? Think again! Make sure you use foil or some other protective measure when you are grilling with people that are eating gluten or if it is a shared grill. Park grills, grills at community space, etc are exposed to so much so you want to make sure you protect yourself.

9. Countertops

Never thought gluten was hiding in your countertops? It easily could be! So make sure you are extra careful if you share a kitchen with a gluten eating person and always thoroughly wipe down every surface.

gluten can hide in your counter tops 10. Cutting Boards

Just like countertops, gluten can be hiding in your cutting boards. If you have celiac disease, I would highly recommend having your own cutting boards and not sharing them with someone who cuts items containing gluten.

11. Beer & Liquor

If you are new to the gluten free life, don’t worry, there are still drinks for you! Wine is gluten free and many liquors as well. Most beer contains gluten, but there are now completely gluten free beers and many 100% gluten free breweries popping up as well! With liquors, make sure and read labels and always ask when you are out at a bar or restaurant. If the server does not know, stick with wine or cider or a liquor that you know is 100 percent gluten free.

12. Prescription Drugs

I know this seems odd and often not something people think about when they first go gluten free. However, some over the counter or prescription drugs can have gluten in them to bind pills together. If you have celiac disease, make sure and always read the labels and or ask the pharmacist questions!

Make sure you check for any gluten in your drugs 13. Condiments

So not only do many condiments contain gluten in the ingredients, but depending on the type of condiment and how it is used, it could contain gluten because someone else used it. Always be careful! Someone could have dipped a gluten containing utensil in it and then you use it and get cross contamination. It is sometimes a slim chance, but honestly you never know!

Where else do you find gluten hides in your world? These are only 13 surprising places gluten hides and there unfortunately are loads of other places!
