    Hello everyone,

    I am new to miles, points, churning, etc.

    I was wondering if people still are able to manufacture spend to reach the minimum spend to get introductory bonuses. Ive heard that the walls are closing In Regarding visa gift cards, red card, etc.

    Anyone have a good way to manufacture spend?

    Prepay utilities, cable, cell phone, all monthly bills. Get it back from no payments for many months.

    You can always buy Gift Cards,

    Christmas is not too far off, so Amazon Cards are a great card to pass out ion the MP Board,

    Myself, I like SMGC,

    AA Exec has a 3X till 9/30 on a few categories

    Prepaying utilities and other billis like money in the bank...

    Simon Mall Gift Cards. $7.00 per $1,000.00

    $700.00 for 125,000 miles, not a bad deal, plus any other perks that comes with the spend..

    Not Free, but lot of miles...

    FWIW, was at FTU Advanced last month in D.C. Time well spent, learned a lot form the instructors, and also a lot from the fellow attendees! Sure wish I had gotten a deal as sweet as this, satman40! :) If you don't get any takers here, put the same notice in the FTU Advanced string. :)

    That was a post from the FTU Section of MP, the guy had a ticket for sale, and it is still For Sale,

    I also learn a lot from fellow attendees.

    FWIW, it appeared that all of the "for sale" tx for the D.C. FTU Advanced went prior to the start of the FTU.
