As many of you know, I am a mile and points junkie. I collect miles and points to be able to travel for what I like to call practically free. In the last year I have not been collecting many miles because I took it easy in anticipation of us selling our house and buying a new house. I have been thinking over the last couple of months about not only collecting miles but also building a travel slush fund to cover expenses like credit card annual fees and incidentals while traveling. In recent weeks I have been contemplating getting into the reselling business. I’ve been aware of this method of generating miles and earning modest profit for some time, but it seemed like it was too time consuming to make it worthwhile.
In recent weeks, however, my attitude has started to change. I have this feeling that my current method for manufacturing miles is not going to last. I also hate spending my own money to earn sign up bonuses. Given what I think is the inevitable end to most of the easy methods of creating miles I figure now is as good as anytime to get into reselling.
I’ve gone back and forth on whether I should just make a new blog or add it as content to this site. My fear with creating a second blog is that I will neglect this blog. So for now I will include my adventures in reselling as content on this site even though it is unrelated to Portland. I will of course continue to include Portland related content on the blog.
I think my posts about reselling will be like a journal chronicling my attempts at reselling. I know very little about the process so if you are interested you can learn with me.
