I've made $1196.32 in total rewards. Most of that has been redeemed, some has not. That number will go up slightly because I am going to redeem my Discover dollars for gift cards and earn more value. I also have about 12k miles that I have not redeemed on my Miles card that I am saving towards a future honeymoon. My total includes a $250 bonus when I signed up for the Penfed Cash Rewards.

I didn't get my Citi Forward, Cash +, or BCP until the latter part of the year. I expect to get close to $2000 in 2013. I probably could do better if I had a 2% everything card as well. I may bite the bullet and upgrade my miles card to escape.
