Credit Card Spending Requirements

Credit Card Spending Requirements

  1. Anonymous

    You have mentioned on OMAAT several times that you have a few dozen credit cards which is really impressive/amazing! You also seem to be able to take advantage of the bonuses on all of those cards by meeting the spending requirements which has always puzzled me because there is only so much one can buy to meet credit card spending requirements. How are you able to meet all of the spending requirements? If there is an easy trick for doing so? If so I would love to know the trick so I can get more credit cards and be sure I can meet the spending requirements. Thank You
