This achievement was a pain to finish, and it will almost certainly be the last single-player achievement you earn.

This is probably the easiest way to earn it (it's easy, but nevertheless very time-consuming):

Set up a game with the following settings:
No Spoilers, Monday (easy) puzzles

You should have no trouble beating the computer opponent. I think in most of my games the computer finished with either $0 or some negative dollar amount.

Within each game, you can win up to 3 trips (although for some reason a few games only allowed 2 trips) -- one trip in Round 2, one trip in Round 3, and then a third trip for finishing the puzzle.

It's really just a matter of continuing to play the game until all trips unlocks. I don't think there are any tricks, and unfortunately the game will often reward you with trips you've already won, instead of unlocking new trips (I don't know how many times I won a trip to Anaheim, California). At the end of the game, it will tell you if any of the trips you've won are new.

Eventually, you'll grind it out and unlock the achievement.
