2019 Point Spend, A Year in Review

Image result for new years

I’ve been looking forward to this post for a while. As I close out the second year of my blog and look at the value of the points that I’ve spent over the last 12 month, I can’t help but smile.

I netted twice what I got last year for my point spend! Here’s the breakdown:

For the year, I received over $13,000 worth of value from my point spent, and spent around $1800 out of pocket. That’s over $12,000 net to me. Not too bad for a part time hobby.

I averaged around 1.9 cents per point value from my Delta Reserve card, and .6 cents per point on my Hilton Aspire card.

Do you track your point spend? How did you do this year?
