I'd like to chime in on this discussion!

I have been using GE's credit card cash back feature for several years. There is a limit of $300/yr which I usually reach with no difficulty since I charge everything I can and pay it off every month. My typical monthly charge is in the $2K - $3K range.

More recently (about 6 mos. ago) I started using the AT&T card for gasoline, groceries and drugstore purchases. These don't add up quite as quickly, but between the two cards, I am usually able to generate cash back totals approaching $50 every 2 months or so. As I said in an earlier post, these cash back features finance 2 - 3 trips to visit my children/grandchildren annually.

What has REALLY aroused my interest is RAD's ability to combine the Credit Card cash back features with the mileage credits that build up with certain credit cards. Up until RAD's post of a few days ago, I had not thought it was possible to do this.

I would really like to see a more detailed explanation. How about it RAD, are you up to the challenge?
