How I’m Earning Free Travel This Week

This one has been around for a little while. But since I’m getting ready to re-order coins, it seemed like a good time to share.

You can get free miles for spending cash. As the link will explain, the US Mint is shipping out $1 coins without any shipping costs. You can buy them in boxes of $250. What does this mean?

Anything you pay cash for, you can get miles. You charge the coins on a mileage-earning credit card, then pay it off at the end of the month. Spend the coins where you normally spend cash (maybe some pesky merchant who you patronize that doesn’t take credit cards).

I mean, if you want to be truly lazy, you can just take the coins to your bank and deposit them, but I think one of the cool parts of this challenge is finding where you use cash now, and maximizing miles.
