2013 Q1 Rewards Haul. Post Your Numbers!

Postby cashback » Sat Mar 16, 2013 5:01 pm

The end of March is near. Everyone should be able to figure out what kind of numbers they will end up with. Not a bad quarter for me. I think I can keep this pace up for the rest of the year. The spending numbers represent actual money spent, not any manufactured spending. Let's see what everyone else has!

It would be interesting if you explained how you earned the bonuses, for example:

Citi Dividend, Citi Simplicity and PenFed - normal spending

Amex SPG and Grocery Store Gas - signup bonus

I'm researching fatwallet and other places to learn to churn.

My rewards are based on normal spending and a partial signup bonus on my freedom. I've actually lowered my spending through the first 2 months of the year, so I'm not making that much in rewards yet.
