    If you're based in the US, one of the best ways to earn miles & points is through credit card spend. This can primarily be done in two ways: -- Taking advantage of good sign-up bonuses. Credit card companies often offer big bonuses to incentivize you to sign up for their card. They're convinced you'll like the product long term, and want to dangle some sort of carrot to get you to sign-up. Many times these bonuses can be huge. -- Maximizing points on everyday spend. In addition to the sign-up bonuses, using the right credit cards for different types of spend can also make a big difference. Rather than earning 1x point per dollar spent, you can often earn 2-5x points per dollar spent. Those points can quickly add up. We've seen quite a few great new cards enter the marketplace lately, so my credit card spend strategy is even more diversified than ever before. In the past there were only at most a few cards I used for everyday spend, so I instinctively knew which card to use for each purchase. Nowadays I often find myself pondering my card choices with each purchase, given that several cards have similarly good returns in bonus categories.
