That's the news folks...

Good News: Jen and I have collected enough miles on our credit card to get a free coach trip anywhere in the US.
Bad News: We got 1 mile for every dollar charged, and needed a minimum of 24,000 miles. That's a lot of money.
Good News: We never paid interest on this card because we pay it off every month.
Bad News: We've only had this card 8 months, so we've spent a lot of money...
Good News: We got almost 6,000 bonus miles because of two double mile months they had.
Bad News: That means we spend close to $3,000 those months, which is our average it seems.
Good News: We're going to work on getting another trip by March of next year, so we can use it for anniversary / vacation in May 2005.
Bad News: We'll probably have no problem reaching that goal.

Yes, it's a lot of money, but I'm willing to bet you--like we--put almost every purchase you make on that card.

(Gee, I wonder if they'd let us make a mortgage payment that way, and collect card bonuses for buying a house?)

That would be SWEET!
