With Sign up bonuses, I'm right around $1800.

Thats from a combination of these cards: AMEX BCP, AMEX Zync, Discover More, Chase Freedom, Chase Sapphire, Citi Dividend, Citi Forward, and Penfed Cash Rewards.

I try to use the 5% categories, and spend a decent amount through Shop Discover.

Using Milewise's cent per point. I'll give the cash equivalent:

Delta Skymiles: 48,000 Miles = $720 (1.5 cents per point) (40,000 signup + 5,000 suntrust checking + 3000 usage + skymile dining)
Amex Membership Rewards: 23,194 pts = $248 (.0107 per point) (10,000 signup + 13,194 usage)
Chase= $350 (checking signup $200 + freedom signup $100 + usage $50)
Blue Cash Preferred = $83 (all usage)
Starwood Preferred = 30,320 points = $715 (.0236 per point) (25,000 sign up bonus + 5,320 usage)
---------------
Grand Total: $2116 or 144814 points

I'm pretty satisfied so far. Especially since, I'll be looking to get Sapphire Preferred (40k), Ink Plus (50k), Cash+, Discover More ($150), Citi Thank You Premier (50k) in October.
American Express '02: Platinum, Blue Cash Preferred 6k, SPG 2k, Delta Gold 1k
Barclaycard '11: Apple Financing Card 2.5k
Citi: Diamond Rewards 1.5k
Chase: Freedom 500
Discover '12: Discover IT 1.5k
