Help With My Unusual Hobby: Card Collection

Tue Jan 25, 2011 3:35 am

hey guys,

I just recently developed a new hobby of card collection and by card I mean frequent flyer card/membership card. It started with just airline cards (I still have OZ, UA, HI and a couple of others with my LH, BA and NH cards being mailed as of right now) Most of them, I had to earn miles with, mostly not by flying but by staying @ hotels, purchasing stuff online and etc. I'm going to fly with DL next month and will earn 3000+ Miles and I need 5,000 miles in total to get a real plastic card... I also have an Expedia/Mastercard debit card that the website gave us for free, so that's an addition to my collection,

Does anybody know what airlines/hotels/stores gives real plastic card after you sign up or that requires a small amount of miles/purchase?

I know this is very unusual, but it's somewhat interesting to me... lol 
It's a cultural thing.

AA still distributes cards. I'll sell you mine for $100.
