While I write much more frequently over at Points With a Crew now, I still want to publish how much Nick and I have earned, points-wise. For me, it’s a fun thing to keep track of, hence why I keep doing it.
Here’s what the first quarter of 2017 looked like:
|Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan||52,248||0|
|American Airlines AAdvantage||63,505||0|
|American Express Membership Rewards||16,105||0|
|Amtrak Guest Rewards||33,394||32,706|
|Chase Ultimate Rewards||0||367 ($3.67 cash back)|
In total, we earned 216,714 points! These points were earned from day-to-day spending, sign-up bonuses (Amtrak x2, American Airlines), points promotions (Alaska) and through shopping portals.
|Amtrak Guest Rewards||16,845||2,097|
|Virgin America eleVAte||31,751||0|
In total, we used 50,693 points! These points were mainly used for weekend getaways to visit our families on Amtrak, however, I did convert my Virgin America points to Alaska miles, at a rate of 1:1.3. If you remember, those were the miles I transferred from SPG in order to earn 50,000 jetBlue miles.
