I have heard before that you can "spoil" an engine by overchanging the oil. Without question you will be wasting money on oil and filters. My car is leased so I go by the factory's suggestions but if it were my car I would change it every 7500 miles.

Just do it every 5-7500 if you are really concerned. 1200 is a bit too much. I do it every 5000 usually.
