This one is simple, just save your money. Do a few side quests or a main storyline quest, then make sure and equip the best stuff you are carrying (as well as upgrades) then sell all the rest. Surveying planets and finding the minerals while exploring planets will also help. After doing only the main Feros planet and about 20-25 sidequests i had over 800,000 credits, so just a few more or another main plotline would net the achievement after selling off my goods.

So you should be able to get this no problem in your first playthrough if you do a lot of sidequests. The only thing i spent my money on were the unique items i found in shops (medi gel upgrades, weapon license, etc.)

Note: If when you reach 1 million credits and the achievement doesn't unlock try going to a store and selling something when you have over 1 million credits. Thanks to Gnemlock for the tip.
