Good Credit + Government Program = Millions of Free Frequent Flyer Miles.

This is the epitome of what I look for. So simple you are going to smack yourself in the head for not thinking of it.

U.S. Mint wants to circulate gold dollar coins. To get them into circulation they offer them on their website with free shipping via credit card.  So, for $250 worth of gold coins, you’re paying $250. Wholesale baby!!

The intention was getting this into the hands of the average Joe, and hope he spends it locally. 

This is where it gets fun, a few slicksters out there realized that paying for something that is going to give you its exact value when it arrives in the mail creates wonderful opportunities.

These genius’s were ordering $1000’s worth of coins with credit cards that offered airline miles, when they arrived they went to their bank, deposited them, and paid off the credit card bill. All of this equals free airline miles. Rinse, Cycle, repeat.

Like all good things this had to end, but for the lucky few, it paid off.
