    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.

    SANDROCKLQFor me I was over 1,000,000 and I got no pop. I was in the middle of a mission and it popped after I killed an enemy.

    This achievement may seem daunting, especially when you are at a lower level and scanning keepers for 30 credits, but it is actually one of the easiest. What you have to understand is that you earn more money per kill/mission/scan as your level increases. And the increase in earnings is ridiculous. Killing a regular Geth trooper at level 50 nets you 10 000 credits. You get even more for completing missions and killing stronger enemies. Therefore, if you want to spend money, go nuts. It doesn't make sense to resist buying that 2000 credit gun at level 5 when 2000 credits becomes less than a penny later on. At level 50, having completed most assignments, I have 10 000 000, and I don't know how I could spend it all if I wanted to. Don't bother with the infinite money glitch - far easier to earn the money naturally.
