    I would need to make 2.5 round trips to get 1K. Still doable.

    Those might get expensive, as only W+ fares are eligible.

    There is always the Elite Maximizer option if desperate.

    just looked that the Elite Maximizer for myself this AM....it is at 0.13 cents per mile..would cost you approx $2600 for the 20k EQMs you are short...pretty expensive.
