Prepayments ideas with credit card
So we messed up and signed up for two miles credit card (one each) that requires spending a certain amount to get the mile award. I know staggering them would have been best but we had a miscommunication about timing so we are now stuck. Now we have to spend $8,000 in 3 months by credit card and our usual credit card monthly charges will barely account for half of that. Any ideas of type of charges or expenses we can pre-pay with credit card? Our insurance policies are all already paid in full, and I don't know what else to check. My husband is excited about going shopping and wants to buy electronics we meant to buy and been postponing, like xbox and new tablet, but I'm wondering if there is a smarter way to meet the required spending without a shopping spree. We can afford the electronics and pay the credit card bill in full monthly so by no means are we planning on spending above our means to get the mile award but I still don't like buying everything on our to-buy-eventually list in one swoop and would rather pre-pay expenses if possible.
