How Not To Meet Minimum Spends

I met the minimum spend on one of my cards today – by deciding I can’t wait until the Japan trip and booking a Paris/Barcelona trip sooner! No, I am not falling into the depths of credit card debt hell. I got my tax return and figure I have the rest of my life to be responsible. 🙂

So, I broke the rules and flat out purchased a trip. No points, no free nights, just a package vacation at a good price. I have plenty of destinations left to use points/miles in the future as they accrue! Will be spending five nights in Paris and three in Barcelona. Any suggestions?

Also, I’m glad I worked a card with no foreign transaction fees and a chip into my last churn (Citi Hilton Reserve). Wasn’t planning on it before but it looks like that card will get some use!
