Well let me put it into context - I'm not making any special trips for this. Its more like I get the $500 and then drop by the bank at the grocery store or when I'm going to the bank for some other reason. (I'm big on actually filing those rebates, etc.) When you only get $500 a month its pretty easy to empty in out in a few chunks over the next month. Additionally its not just the 500 miles - it the cumulative spend I'm after since it will get me to the next MQM threshold with far less net spend than one of those mileage runs or alike.
