Its that time of year- the senseless Grand Slam purchases start rolling in (along with the thousands of bonus miles!). I guess you could say that its like Christmas for a mileage junkie. I’ve currently completed 29 “hits” for the Grand Slam Promotion so only 7 more to go to hit the 100,000 mile bonus. Here is my run-down and a picture of the things that have been shipped to me thus far

Grand Slam Goodies

(I accidentally threw out the $2 Extra Joist Finding Screw I purchased from SkyMall.) From left to right : $3 Wireless Wipes from DM Wireless Store,  $20 for two bottles of Biscoff spread, 6 bottles of wine from Vinesse for $42- a couple are gone- oops, $9 Netflix subscrition, $2 Breast Cancer Awareness month Sharpies from Office Max,  $22 for Track it Back tags. My other hits have consisted of transferring miles to US (SPG, Hilton, Choice and Hyatt), Rental cars (Hertz), Dividend Miles Dining ($2), US Airways Bank of America Debit Card ($30), E-rewards, Thanks Again (“like” their Facebook page for 100 free miles” and hotel stays. You have until November 14th to get in the game- totally worth it since I’ll be able to get two off-peak Envoy awards to Europe for roughly 3 hours of time and ~$200 (thx to the business paying for hotel and rental cars)!
