How many 1099's do you think you'll have by the end of this year? This is the first year I've signed up for accounts just to get a bonus, and I'm wondering if it's confusing to have a bunch of 1099's for taxes. In spite of that, I say keep them coming!
Since you are limited by ChexSystems to 4 new accounts per 3 months, you should not expect more than 16 1099's.
If your average bonus is $100, than you should expect to have $1600 in bonuses before taxes. If you get your spouse involved, you are talking about $3200 before taxes.
You can do even better if you do credit card, brokerage and, probably, "free stuff" deals.
