    Doesn't sound that difficult if you have the money, even without manufactured spending.

    What's the highest earning spg credit card out there?

    I suspect it is someone who has a business card and has a judge cash flow, maybe a car dealer or Doctor with a surgery center, lots of supplies.

    It's got to be someone whose home address is simply "SPG" and the mail gets delivered...

    I would presume that earnings of that volume come from partners - mostly CC spend - much more than on-property stays. Even a meeting planner can only earn up to 20,000 points per event which would mean 1000 events to get to 21mm points.

    Can't even imagine how someone could've earned 21 million Starpoints in 365 days. Awesome, I will have to dream on.

    ... I do not think that's accurate. SPG says I earned 227k in SPG this year. There's NO WAY that is accurate. I only have ~150k and have only redeemed about 50k + I was not negative last year...

    What I think counts as "earning" is the booking/canceling of award nights. I redeemed and canceled quite a few stays (speculatively because we kept changing dates/locations for our travels) and I think that's what made my "earning" so high.

    I was surprised at my amount as well. I was in the 150k range but I don't think I ever earned that much....

    Is it supposed to show personalized information on that page? I don't see anything specific to me. (then again, that might be because there isn't much to report)

    Yup. First half of the page should show you specific information like how many star points you earned. Which property did you redeem etc.

    OK, nothing for me. I didn't redeem anything, and I didn't have any SPG stays. I did earn points with my card, though. And transferred my wife's points over to my account ;)

    same here, I did not even earn half of what SPG says. Also my wife's and my amount is almost identical. NOT POSSIBLE. I think this is nothing short than a SPG self promotion. But anyway interesting read.
