    Hey all,

    With the DEQM with AA, I have decided to take the leap up to Exec Plat. After doing the requisite math, with the promo, I need 19,085 BIS miles to make it.

    Any cheap suggestions? All I can find at this time are flights in the ~3.2cpm with the promo which isn't a very good deal. Ideally I want to hover around the ~2.5 cpm range or lower. And ideally the MR is before Nov 26 or after Dec 21 as I will be out of pocket and in school.

    Thanks all!

    If you could travel to SEA first, I would suggest SEA-DFW-BOS-DFW-SEA at 282 dollars with 0-1 night. Base miles are 6442 and the EQM will be 12884 with the AATHX.

    FYI, I reposition myself from Miami to SEA in order to take advantage of this fare and still keep the cost low at 2.4 cents/ EQM after AATHX and 1.63 cents/redeemable miles since I get 3X miles.

    Thanks for the heads up as this seems like the best bang for the buck at the moment.

    5.0 cents/mile is my expectation. below 4 cents/mile sound great to me:)

    I did booked something like FLL-ORD-SFO-MIA with great value, while something crazy like MIA-TPA-ORD-LAX-ORD-FLL-ORD-LAX-ORD-MIA.......
