How much do you make

Just kind of curious! How much does one would make from manufactured spending per month?

Not another one of those "mine is bigger than yours" threads.

I make $100,000 a month in CB. Yes, I buy 4,000 GCs a month at the grocery store and purchase 2,000 MOs a month at WM. The MC employees don't mind at all, they really enjoy my company. In fact WM set up a dedicated line for me in the MC that is roped off.

I know this is sarcasm... but... it is doable with proper team structure. =)

Lets see, $2,000,000 in MS monthly, How do we get there.... GO!

Team structure? As in ball team? With the old USAirways Grand Slam promotion 10 accounts could earn a collective 1,000,000 in a day. The cardinals over there were quick to discover that and shut down the field of dreams. Think outside the box (seats).

Overextending can be fatal as there are always eyes on credit metrics. Your spend pattern cannot look like you are running up credit and then planning your own version of a bank bailout.

I typically make enough for at least 2 days worth of lunch from the leftovers. It's a real time saver.

2000 WM MO == 1000 WM visits (2 MO per visit) == 34 visits per month (30 days per month) == 17 WM (2 visits per day per WM) ~ 8.5 hours (15 minutes per visit) + driving hours == Full time job for a 2-person team with 1 million CL per person (1x CL spending)

OK... which city has the most MS friendly WM available?

getting MOs isnt necessarily the prob... depositing and closing the loop is the problem... not to mention CL issues unless you have a free pass from AMEX/WF/etc.
