Sure, the signup bonus is definitely convenient, but is it possible to keep on accruing large quantities of points even after you’ve redeemed your signup bonus?
The answer to this question is a resounding yes, even if you’re a frugal consumer. You just need to whip out your credit card for transactions for which you would normally use cash. By using your credit card anywhere that it’s accepted—including at the supermarket, the gas pump, and for your monthly bills—you’ll be amazed by how quickly you can earn points without purchasing anything extra. You already have to fork out hundreds, if not thousands on monthly expenses, so why aren’t you using a credit card and getting miles on the purchases you make anyway? As long as you pay your credit card off in full every month, this method will not cost you anything extra!
