2017 was a big year! I opened a bunch of credit cards, booked my first trip completely on points and miles, and started planning my points and miles honeymoon. In the process, I managed to earn over 655,000 points and miles from sign-up bonuses alone. I was also surprised to learn that I redeemed over one million points/miles, some of which were for my honeymoon at the end of 2018. Next year’s travel plans also include a trip to London with my sister. I’m not sure what else 2018 has in store, but I like where it’s heading already.
Here’s how I made out in 2017. Comment below with your favorite redemptions and churning wins from 2017!
