We collected over 2 MILLION miles & points in just 1 year!

by | Sep 16, 2017

When we were featured on Million Mile Secrets in their “Inspirations” section, we received some recurring questions (and criticism) from readers who visited our blog through the MMS feature. We appreciate both positive and negative comments, because they both signify interest. 😉

We are going to address each and every single one of the questions (and criticism) in our future posts!

We revealed that we collectively have around 2 million miles and points, so today’s short post will try to satisfy the curiosity of the voyeuristic points collectors who wanted to know the breakdown of where they are all stashed. I actually LOVE reading other bloggers who reveal their numbers, so it was really fun for me to tally everything up for this post.

Credit Card Points

Chase Ultimate Rewards Points


AMEX Membership Rewards Points


SPG Starpoints


Barclaycard Arrival Plus Miles


Citi Thankyou Points


Airline Miles

American Airlines AAdvantage Miles


Southwest Points


United MileagePlus Miles


Hotel Points

Marriott Rewards Points


Club Carlson Points


IHG Hotel Points


Hilton Hhonors Points


Wyndham Rewards Points


Grand Total


We used some of our stash along the way to book hotels and flights for our travels (like our weekend getaway to New Orleans), so the total we currently have at the time of writing this post is around 2,201,306 points and miles.

I kind of wish there was a way to Scrooge McDuck our way around a vault full of miles and points! We’ve finally become millionaires (of a sort)! 😉

In our future posts, we will dive into the nitty gritty details of just exactly how we were able to collect so many miles and points in such a short amount of time… without dabbling in risky manufactured spending (MS) that goes against the credit card companies’ terms and conditions.

MS refers to spending money with your credit card to earn points/miles and then getting the money back as cash. For example; buying a lot of gift cards and reselling them counts as a risky way to MS. Companies like American Express are known for cancelling accounts and clawing back points from people who overdo things like this.
