Has anyone though of using one of those square credit card readers to get points on cards with promos quicker? https://squareup.com/ You can get a card reader and setup an account with Square. Once you get the reader you can then charge your card for the amount you need to get the promo. Square takes 2.75% of the transaction as a fee and you get the remainder deposited back into your bank account. I figured this might be a good way to meet the point requirements. It isn't free, but if you used it for the Citi 75K mile promo the $110 dollar fee might be worth getting your points within the first billing cycle. What does everyone else think?
