I can see the game aspect, but investing is a more fun game.
As long as I can put two weeks' of spending on my cards in whatever manner maximizes my rewards, and the balances after two weeks don't alarm any of my creditors, I'm happy.
Well, that's not totally it. Getting boosted to Visa Sig on Freedom or WMC on Sallie Mae would be good.
Is your Sallie Mae a Platinum or World MC? What's your history with it as far as account age and any auto or HP CLIs?
So I like the game aspect, I suppose. I just don't have any interest in the part that involves getting cards I won't use much due to mediocre rewards and modest signup bonuses.
