Hey everyone,
I signed-up through DD for the Bonvoy Card that requires $5K in 3 mths for 100K.
$5K is going to be tough.
Any manufactured spending anyone can DM to help me hit that target?
Thx.

Buying groups?
At your own risk.

There is a large thread on the forums.

As long as you don't go overboard, you can mix a $500 VGC from GiftCardMall with regular spend. Buy too many and you'll be flagged.

Everyone, anyone:  I got the Bonvoy 100K card & I need some help making the initial $5K spend.  Any suggestions?  I would prefer some manufactured spending as there's nothing left I can pre-pay.  Thanks for any/all help!  Please private message me w/tips.  Magic Castle passes available!  Thanks!

Go to costco and get gift cards or buy regular items in bulk - I recall Mark Cuban once saying he has cases of toothpaste in his house because it doesnt expire.

What about buying cases of wine/scotch to keep and enjoy when the time comes.
buy sports tickets and resell them on 2nd hand sites.
buy children's teachers end of yr gifts. pre-buy camp counselor gifts.
