I just saw this thread on FlyerTalk. The couple in question here started the year with 0 miles/points and has accumulated 670,000 points – without flying a mile! They applied for multiple credit cards between them to collect these points. The subject of the thread seems to suggest that the poster did it single-handedly, but it was between him and his wife. Impressive none the less.

Here is the list of cards they collected:

  • 75k AA Citi Card
  • 75K AA Citi Business Amex
  • 75K AA Citi Visa (Wife)
  • 75K AA Citi Amex (Wife)
  • 50K Southwest Premier
  • 50K Southwest Plus [Current offer: 25k Southwest Plus 
  • 50K Southwest Premier (Wife)
  • 50K Southwest Plus (Wife)
  • 30K Chase Freedom 
  • 30K Chase Freedom (Wife)
  • 50K Chase Ink Business 
  • 50K Amex Gold Business

I am not endorsing (or not endorsing, for that matter) all these cards – the only ones I have myself are – AA Citi Visa and the AmEx Gold Business. Also, I would not advise everyone to do this; your credit score needs to be able to handle all the pulls!
