I’ve created a “Hot Deals” tab on the blog which outlines my selection of the best current miles and point deals.

I’ve included only the easiest and most lucrative way to earn miles and points to have Big Travel with Small Money!

Here’s what I have included:

1) Earn up t0 150,000 AAdvantage miles by applying for the Citi AAdvantage Visa and American Express together using the 2-browser trick

2) Earn 40,000 points from the Chase Sapphire Preferred Card. These points can be transferred to partners such as British Airlines, Continental Airlines, Hyatt, Marriott, Priority Club, and Amtrak

3) Earn 22,000 AAdvantage miles by opening a Mileage checking account from BankDirect

4) Buy up to 100,000 US Air Dividend miles for $1,478

5) Earn another 75,000 AAdvantage miles by applying for a Citi AAdvantage Amex or Visa Business card 65 days after you apply for the 2 Citibank AAdvantage personal cards

That’s a haul of 247,000 AAdvantage miles and 50,000 Chase Ultimate Reward points, if you don’t want to buy spend money for the US Air Dividend miles.

What’s your favorite deal which I have not included here?  Tell us about it in the comments!

Disclosure: You should know that BankDirect is my primary bank and that I have  another checking account with Chase.

Citibusiness TIN/SSN?

Thanks for the info. Well based on that advice I will schedule my next business churn. But I only have a “sole propriotorship” business and I only use my SSN and I do not have a TIN. So I hope this will not effect my chances of getting a “new” business card. Is it better to opt for a TIN when doing the business churn?

@mike – There is always a good chance that you won’t get approved a for anew business card, so don’t do it if you HAVE to have a business credit card.

I currently have a Citi Business Mastercard. Will they let me apply for a Business AMEX or Visa for the 75K link?

I went bust when I applied for the personal cards and got a decline letter stating that I had 3 personal card prior@!!! 🙁

@mike – It really depends! Sometimes Citi has given me a new business card if I apply more than 90 days after I’ve been approved for a previous business card. More recently, they have declined my application so I can’t say for sure. You will likely get declined for the personal cards if you’ve had them within the last 12 to 18 months.

darn, I was hoping to log on today and see 5 or 10 other smoking deals posted in the comment section that i could take advantage of. I guess it’s up to you Dariaus to keep leading the way.

@Jeremy – We’re all in this together, and I’ve got great suggestions from readers which I’ll be sharing soon. It’s not my ideas alone that are great – it is everyone sharing and working together that makes this game (collecting miles and points) possible!

I really appreciate your disclosure at the end of the posts. I’ve tried to push other bloggers toasted more transparency, and it’s refreshing that you did it from the get go
