For as long as I’ve been at the manufactured spend game, I’ve been literally chasing the points and cash had been an after thought. Like a couple of weeks, there was a great money making Staples gift card offer. My main goal was to earn points and the cash was gravy.
I’ve now amassed a war chest of points and miles, mostly in Ultimate Rewards and there’s too many points for me to use. After I’ve completed the 20kChallenge, I now have more Membership Rewards than I know what to do with them.
Then I went to the #resellingDO.
This isn’t quite a formal write up or review on the #ResellingDO. I thought it was a huge success, met with some really awesome people. I also had the opportunity to finally meet Trevor and Big Habitat and also put a face to the name behind @mileswhip as well as a few other folks that I’ve been talking to on Twitter.
In the last month or so, I’ve been preparing myself to begin reselling and I have been reading and immersing myself in all topics. In all, I found all of the topics tremendously valuable.
After meeting with some of the attendees and viewing the presentations, there was a bit of an awakening for me. Like I’ve been this hibernating grizzly bear and the event poked me awake and now I’m upset. It’s like I’m Hulk mad now and I’m on a mission.
New Goal & Mission
My new goal is to now slowly transition from gift card reselling to actually reselling product whereby earning credit card points and miles will be the gravy. For reselling products, you can bet that I will use all the techniques that I’ve used to source gift cards cheaply will be redeemed for these products.
In the last few months, I have become bored and jaded with manufactured spending. Researching on reselling products and learning something new has rejuvenated me in our pursuit for miles and points. It’s quite exciting to be on a different journey.
