And 86 is the most number of SPG properties visited by one member this year:
In terms of slightly more shocking statistics, one member earned over 21 million Starpoints this year (I’m guessing they spend a lot of money on credit cards, but even so, that seems high):
But perhaps the most painful statistic? Someone earned 230,000+ Starpoints through (the now-defunct) Crossover Rewards, whereby elite members earn one Starpoint per dollar spent on Delta:
Spending $230,000+ on Delta in a year? Ouch!
