How many miles can you earn by credit card?

Darius at Million Mile Secrets has posted about his take last year from applying for credit cards.  His main method of earning miles is via credit card, as he does not travel much for work, or engage in crazy shenanigans like mileage runs.  He explains how he raked in over 1 million miles and points in 2011 via credit card signup bonuses.  Wow!  In his post, he also explains his strategy for managing his credit card scores and making sure his applications don’t set off alarms with any of the credit card providers.

His post shows just how much you can earn with credit card application and signups alone, plus he has an extensive, 40+ item list on ways to use your credit card to meet minimum spend requirements.  Hopefully his chronicles are inspiring to some of you!
