Q3 2017 – Earn, Baby, Earn

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 third quarter of 2017 looked like:


Program Sam Nick
American Airlines AAdvantage 1,382 0
American Express Membership Rewards 27,394 0
Amtrak Guest Rewards 701 0
Chase Ultimate Rewards 2,590 ($25.90 cash back) 140 ($1.40 cash back)
Citi Thank You Points 4,312 0
Delta Air Lines SkyMiles 86,125 74,668
Hilton Honors 118,344 11,028
jetBlue TrueBlue 1,253 0
Marriott Rewards 3,450 0
Southwest Rapid Rewards 1,000 0
Starwood SPG 2,105 0
TOTAL 248,656  85,836

In total, we earned 334,492 points! These points were earned from day-to-day spending, sign-up bonuses (American Express, Delta x2), point transfers, online promotions, and through shopping portals.


Program Sam Nick
Amtrak Guest Rewards 9,931 6,817
TOTAL 9,931 6,817

This was a pretty light month for spending points, as we only spent 16,748 Amtrak Guest Rewards points.

Overall, this quarter was spent earned way more points than we burned, which sets us up for some pretty great adventures in the future!
