I read a comment on Frequent Miler’s blog from MrPickles about a new measurement of success in the travel game.
Miles per Minute
The measurement takes into account your mileage earning 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and 365 days a year. In other words, what miles are you earning per minute without doing a thing? I came up with some of the obvious examples of perpetual earning like the 100 miles per thousand dollars on deposit with Bank Direct each month. Just leave your money sit and earn miles per minute. Another example might be automatic payments from your mileage earning credit cards for utilities, cell phone charges, internet, any reoccurring bills you need to do nothing for other than just leave the bill paying system alone after setup.
Can you add any other opportunities to the discussion? What other “no-brainers” are you involved in? and what is your current miles per minute earning rate?
MrPickles claims 1.28 miles for every minute he is alive and breathing. I came up with .925 collectively for Katybug and me. How are you guys doing?
