    Is there anything you can buy nowadays that won't get you miles? :)

    Anyway... just saw the banner on the US website and decided to follow it, especially since it said something about 10k miles for buying pet food... :)

    http://www.petfooddirect.com/shop/us-airways-dividend-miles-program-pet-food


    The basic breakdown seems to be like this:

    * New customers earn 500 miles for the first purchase, and 1 mile per dollar spent "on pet food and supplies" at PetFoodDirect.com. Up to 10k miles per calendar year.

    * If you sign up for "auto ship" (I suppose some kind of auto-renewal pet food shipping contraption) you get 500 bonus miles, then another 2k miles after the second auto-ship order.

    * Minimum purchase is $50, but it's not clear whether or not that's for the first purchase or ALL of them -- and that's $50 without discounts, shipping and tax.

    They added the line at the bottom to clarify the detail section. It now says:

    Isn't pet food by mail the whole reason Pets.com went bankrupt? How do they plan to ship high-weight, low-value goods and make a profit?
