    For those wondering, that's 2.01 cpm:

    The cost to buy 60,000 + 30,000 Bonus miles is $1,808.75 USD *.

    180875 cents / 90000 miles = 2.00972 cents per mile

    Use your AA credit card and get an additional 1650 miles (it's not doubled since the purchase is actually from points.com), 1.97 cpm. You'll also get 9,000 of the 90,000 back when you redeem them, 1.79 cpm after that rebate.

    Use your Starwood card, earn 1650 Starpoints and convert them as part of a 20K + 5K bonus block and get 2063 additional miles (pro-rated), 1.96 cpm.
