I love the last half of every year, especially the last quarter of the year. Why? Every year it seems some portal will give you a spend bonus whether it is back to school, Father’s day, graduation, or holidays. These are quick and awesome manufactured spend opportunities.
Thanks to Big Habitat I saw his post today about 8x with Sears. Tie in the spend $500 bonus and earn an extra 2000 American Airlines Aadvantage mile offer, you could buy American Airline miles for $.009/mile up to 6000 miles. For this to occur, you’d to use your Discover card for 5% cash back. If you know how to do a little fancy manufactured spending you can make the deal even cheaper close to 4%.
