Yeah, Rasheed, but really -- paying a 25% premium for mere miles?
C'mon, Real Men Just Fly, Dammit! :-)

Actually, my year-to-date Premier flight mileage is... 13,000. Yep, a
complete collapse.

This month's miles go out to Rasheed Baqai for being the first one to alert
us to this new opportunity for certain Mileage Plus members to top off their
accounts for award purchases. The promotion is called "Personal Miles," and
any United Visa or MasterCard holder can use their card to purchase up to
15,000 miles online between Oct. 1 and Dec. 31. The miles cost 2.5 cents
per, plus excise tax and processing fee. Miles purchased should take two to
three weeks to post. And as Rasheed points out, there seems to be no
restriction on CollegePlus credit cardholders (who pay no annual fee). The
miles are on the way, Rasheed!
