  1. any help would be great.

    if I buy a 200k 2yr CD from bank direct for 200k AA miles.
    1)if I buy another 200k 2yr CD the next day will i get another 200k AA miles or the reduced 5k (25 per 1000)
    2) if I withdraw early, I lose 2% for penalty fee (making it 2 cents per mile), but can I buy another 200k 2yr CD a few days later for another 200k AA miles

    I'm pretty far from a million miles, but debating if I do this a few times is it worth it for lifetime gold? ie at 2cents a mile, it would cost 20k for 1 million miles.
