I’ve put together a spreadsheet of what points and miles I can possibly earn for 2013 without flying. I want to earn at least 600k which may be pocket change to some but I don’t have a business to rack up miles through spending. So here it is:
So it looks like I’ll be earning lots of Delta and HHonors points with other programs sprinkled in. Why these may you ask? Well these programs I haven’t yet taken advantage of and these credit cards I have not yet applied for. I would be applying for 8 cards (in green) which would cost me about 1k in annual fees and 13k in minimum spends but I would be getting greater than 600k points and miles in total. And of course I would be making lots of trips to Walmart. I didn’t include paypal because I’ll probably be using these to meet minimum spends.
This is assuming of course that I get approved for all these but I don’t see why not since I have pretty good credit. Here is to 2013! Happy New Years and Happy Travels!
