What I Don’t Post About…

Manufactured spending is the process by which one generates, or manufactures money spent to reach a sign-up bonus or generate points with as little as real expenditure as possible,
Why Don’t I Post About… Manufactured Spending?
When bloggers post about these things, they die.
Take for example:
- Target Redcard by AMEX… Dead
- Vanilla Reloads… Dead
- Buying coins from the mint… Dead
- Amazon payments (I had three of these when I first got started)… Dead
- Serve by AMEX… On life support
These are just a handful of methods over the past several years that have died. Of course, new methods come and go, as will anything in any hobby, but over the past few weeks the miles and points world has been hit harder than normal.
So how do you discover new methods?
Read. Read a lot. Any hobby takes time, and if you want to be serious about earning and burning, and you need access to fake spending, then you have to take time to do the research, read forums, and join groups.
Is there a happy medium?
There are three approaches one can take with sharing tips/tricks/hacks when it comes to this topic:
- Share everything! Why should these methods be limited to a select few? We all want to travel for free!
- Share some things… Those things which already are so well known, and will die eventually, with or without blogger intervention. (Amazon payments comes to mind).
- Share nothing overtly; drop hints and point people in the right direction, but spoon feeding or methods on life support are never shared.
A majority of blogs I read take the second stance, the “happy medium”, if you will; one blogger (who shall rename nameless) in a bowtie posts everything, such as how he opened up five Alaska airlines credit cards in one day. Now you’re lucky if you get two.
I take the third stance.
Do you agree, or disagree with my decision to not over share?
