I am still feeling my way along so thought more experienced milers would offer some insight. I am trying to build up my AA acct. towards my prize of lifetime status. I have a ways to go and have been doing it mostly with my bankdirect account balance which earns me about 20K a month. A friend of mine who runs a charity has over 4 million miles and offered me as much as I want for about a penny a mile. The payment would be a donation to the charity. I could always use them for flights so going to waste is not an issue. If the cost wasn't an issue, any thoughts on getting a couple of hundred thousand ?
