• We just rolled out a huge software update for the Forum to bring us into the 20th Century. There's still a couple of kinks that we are working out. Let us know if you encounter any problems and we will have them squared away quickly.

Introduce yourself here!

Howdy folks. I've been playing the Game of Cards for a while now. I've always had some kind of reward card, but really starting hitting it hard about 5 years ago. Mainly use points and miles for quick weekend trips and a big trip annually. I've had most cards and live way over 5/24. I'm running out of options for new cards and am looking to start hitting MS hard(er) and help others around me overcome their fears and start playing the Game.

My SO had terrible credit, but we've got that fixed so she's in the game now. She's gone from 0 points/miles to just under 200k in less than 15 months.

Got one brother deep in the game and one that has yet to convert. Mom and dad (well, mom) are reluctant too, but I'll win them over soon. SO's parents have seen us jet setting like rich folks and finally just recently got in the Game. Convinced a big spending buddy to stop wasting his spend recently. Many other friends are starting to consistently hit me up for info. They all tell me I need to write a book, but I know I've only scratched the surface of what the Game can provide.

In all honestly, the L2 forums and potential talks with those more savvy than me are what drew me here. Never done any networking in the hobby (don't do much in life) and looking to change that. Look forward to sharing what I've learned and helping like minded individuals.

Hi everyone:

I just signed up and look forward to good conversation. I also happen to be a user of /r/churning but find the forum based approach to offer a great alternative to reddit. My brief history...

Got into the game last January by reading about TPG. Signed up for the CIP (called in right away - d'oh!) since I thought I would be doing some consulting work. I started reading more and more and eventually outlined my strategy. 14 months later I finished chase with 5 personal cards, 3 biz cards and worked my way into Amex and now I'm working on citi. It's been a great ride and I've gotten my SO to get on board as well.

What drew me here was the prospect of visiting some more private forums to talk openly and share tricks of the trade (while knowing that even those will be kept mostly close to the vest by folks). Anyway, love this game and look forward to more conversation.

I wish more from /r/churning had your attitude! The open discussions that happen there (and FT for that matter) are mind boggling. Anyway, welcome to Saverocity.
