May 2012 In Review (+66,201 Miles/Points)


There is a “Historical Perspective” table at the end of the post that I use for a “trailing 12 months” quickview with average. For the bottom-liners, this is a good place to look, but average has been 104,408 for the last 9 months–which is as long as I’ve tracked such things. I think that’s not bad. This was my lowest month in recorded history. However, if you’ve been following  you’ve got some idea as to why.

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.

Also, in the tables, you may see transfers, cancellations, etc. Those numbers are not included in my miles/points count for the month. The number shown is the actual amount of new miles/points that I accrued this month (again, not including survey sites and the like).
