I have been churning for a couple of years, but really started doing it in earnest a few months ago. I have noticed myself getting ever so impatient, waiting for card to be approved, waiting for cards to arrive, waiting for points to post, waiting for the 12 (or 18) months to elapse... I wish it could be February so I can convert Amex points to KF and get elite gold status that will expire as far in the future as possible. It occurs to me that it is a strange way to live, wishing your life away based on the time taken to churn cards. Has anyone else felt this way?
