January, 2012 In Review (+94,427* miles/points)


Preamble: I started doing these “In Review” posts with the September 2011 close, so this is my fifth one. Every one of them has featured a gain of more than 68,000 points and the average has been over 100,000 during that time. I’m pretty happy with those results. I’m not sure if that pace will sustain for all of 2012, as it’s possible that I will have a (local) move later this year so I’m taking it easy on the credit card signups, but we’ll see how things roll. It should be noted that my “net” during this past month was actually only 44,427 (hence the * in the title :)). This is because I forgot to turn off an auto-convert that changed my 50,000 Club Carlson points from their recent “Big Night Giveaway” promo into 6,250 US Airways miles.

As most of you know, at the end of each month I do a Month-in-Review posting that details my activity for the month ending. “The Month in Review” posts don’t list things like TopGuest, e-Miles, e-Rewards, MyPoints or My Coke Rewards in the Accounts list. I do list transfers from those programs into “real” loyalty programs, so you’ll get the idea anyway.
