Have you considered sharing your card with someone? You can do this by either specifying that the cardholder has permission to use the card, or getting that person his/her own card.

This person needs to be someone you can trust to spend wisely and protect the card, either the one you’ve given them, or their own, as you or your company will still be responsible for the card. However, because the use of the card is credited to your account, you may be able accumulate points faster.

Again, make sure this is someone you can trust. Keep up with the records of every transaction that occurs. You may want to sit down with the other cardholder, especially if this is being done in a business setting, and clarify how and when the card can be used, and if there are any purchase limits. No amount of points is worth you or your company experiencing financial difficulties.

For example, you may want to designate specific merchants for certain expenses, such as fuel or office supplies. You can make sure whoever shares the card is aware of these specifications; further, you can also contact the merchant directly and tell him this.
