Best/Funniest MS methods
« on: June 29, 2015, 03:37:56 PM »
From FT: Hilarious!!

So some idiot starts a thread by saying: Hello everyone, this thread is for us to all disclose our best unknown methods for MS. This is the thread where we reveal our "golden goose" that no one else (or very few) knows about yet. If its a topic covered in another thread or has been blogged about in the past, please do not post it here.
Instead this thread is for fresh ideas, lucrative new unknown methods of MS, the kind of methods that you hope will last forever because its easy to do and the cost/return ratio is so high.
As Tiberius would say post away "my little fishies".

The responses had me in stitches:

I buy gift cards and get points on my credit card.
Please dont blog this

I got married and had children and now spend a lot more on my credit cards to earn miles.

I discovered this new thing called Reload. I believe it is "Chocolate Reload". Please, no one tell anyone my secret.

I buy giftcards (to bribe) for all grocery store clerks, CVS Cashiers, Card Issuers (including prepaid card issuers) and in the process earn a lot of miles.
Don't tell anyone. This is illegal

Easy. Just take out a no deductible auto insurance policy. Then drive around and smash into lots of things. Put the repair costs on your CC and get a reimbursement check from the insurance company! Rinse and repeat.
Can't believe this one hasn't hit the blogs yet!

I just get sign up bonuses for dead or nearly dead people. The dead ones don't travel and the nearly dead ones don't have a clue. When you talk about bluebirds they look out the window, and ice cream is a welcome mealtime dessert.
Isn't this what everybody does?
Oh-- was I supposed to keep that a secret?

I buy vanilla reloads at office depot to load to my bluebird and pay bills, the trick is you have to use cash to buy them, the real trick I knowing how to get 5x using cash.

AND the best one:

I can get unlimited cash advances on any debit card. It doesn't matter the balance; usually you can get around 10K, maybe more if the time is right. All you do is go into the bank wearing a ski mask and hand a note to the teller saying "I want all the cash". 99 times out of 100, she'll just fill up a bag for you, no card swipe needed!
You do have to make sure to get out fast, though. Once word spreads, the cops try to shut you down.

I can't stop laughing!
post your own!

another one:

I got this cool way to reach signup bonuses for my last AOR.

Step 1.) have fiancÚ tear ACL a few months before wedding and before she can hop up your insurance.

Step 2.) Pay off bills on credit cards after Wedding

Can't wait for my "Free" trip to Italy!

another:
Am I the only one that puts his low-credit score neighbors as AUs on CCs to rack up points, and when CC statements are due, send "collectors" around the neighborhood to collect cash?

I buy stamps, ink, paper and envelopes at a certain store and get 5x points for it. Then I write Senators and Congressmen encourging them to convert all paper money to coins.
