    Hello-

    Was wondering if anyone has planned or will be planning mileage runs in January to get a head start for '13?

    I'm sure a number of people hopped on the $163-167 UA fare to CLT. I planned a run LAS-SFO-ORD-CLT-IAH-LAS but didnt book it because positioning flight would have made it not worth it to me.

    Going to SIN at the end of Jan just for the miles so that's a sizable head start.

    Going to miss it by a week. I get in on the 24th. I booked this trip because the Flight Deal show a great deal on AA out of the hub down here in DFW.

    SFO-NRT-GUM-PNI and HNL-SFO are revenue, the rest are awards.

    Front loading can be a cheaper way to the status you are looking for. There are many off-season MRs available over very long distances in January and February. I have been going through my 'I want to go there sometime' list and running it through UAs reservation machine with 'My dates are flexible' checked and finding some interesting fares with big miles. Some spreadsheet planning is required, though, as well as a budget and time available.

    If I can find really cheap fares in January, I'll do MRs. At the very least I will do a short trip the first week of January because I hate it when my mileage for the year is "0".
