Last year, I clocked more than a million miles. A lot of them without being on a plane. Here are the details of how it was done, and perhaps, you could do it too!!

British Airways is currently offering 3x the usual base Avios on flights travelled through this quarter. Maybe this is a good time to get up to 600% Avios per flight flown. Here is all we know.
Today is the last day to register for two important promotions. One relates to a 50% bonus on transfers to Avios, and the other relates to double elite night credit on Marriott. Do it now!
Avios, the currency earned while flying British Airways and Iberia, is currently offering a 50% transfer bonus to Citibank customers who make a conversion. Check out all the details of the promotion and how to make it work for you.
Marriott has a promotion offered through the end of the year, which makes it possible to earn a bonus of up to 35,000 miles for stays at Marriott Hotels during the year. Check in to find out the details

This just in. As a Gold member of the British Airways Executive Club, I do send a chunk of my business their way on my business travel. Reader Deovrat alerted me to some changes they are going to be making to the structure of the Executive Club for bookings made from April 28, 2015 onwards. Tickets booked before April 28, 2015 will earn Avios at the old rates.
