I spent 4800 on the Miles & More mastercard and then stopped, didn't notice for three months.
I remember when a coke was a nickel, and you could buy VRs in OD.

And you got 2 suite nights?  Was that before you reached the spending threshold or just right after you applied?
It's not about the quantity of your posts.  It's about the quality.
