Summary of Miles Earning from February 24, 2015 to March 9, 2015

* I am remodeling my home so there are a lot of transactions for Lowes and Home Depot online.  Because I want the miles, I told my contractor that I will buy the materials by myself as he instructs.

* Usually Lowes has 2X AA in American AAdvantage Mall, but this week they have 6X AA.  It is a good opportunities for me to earn even more miles.

* I utilize the gift card strategies and purchase the Home Depot gift card and Lowes gift card by using Chase Freedom at Safeway for 5X UR, or by using Chase Ink Business Card at Staples and Office Max for 5X UR.

* Therefore, I am getting 12 miles per dollar I spend at Lowes and 7 miles per dollar I spend at Home Depot.

20622 Ultimate Rewards + 18272 American AAdvantage Miles + 23979 ThankYou Points + 4605 Ritz Carlton Rewards + $37.96 Cash Back
