We never cease to be amazed at the creative ways mileage junkies fuel their habit. From the Washington Post comes this gem:
“After her father’s death, Leesa Weiss was in a Rockville funeral home putting together the final arrangements when she noticed a placard indicating that the place accepted credit cards.
“The placard got her thinking. Here she was, wrestling with the death of a parent, planning the service and calculating the funeral tab of about $9,000. Why not charge it all to her US Airways Visa card and get a few extra frequent flyer miles?
“‘My father would get a kick out of this,’ said Weiss, a North Bethesda lawyer. ‘For what we were spending on the credit card, I thought I might as well get something out of it.'”
