Re: Credit card, Miles, Points thread

Will be getting the full 110k points with my new Brex account. Last 20k is earned either via setting up payroll or transferring directly from ebay, venmo, and similar.

Easiest 110k in history. No credit pull and since it's a bank account with an attached debit/credit card, no effect to 5/24
