    Got an email today offering DC miles for 20% discount. Not the best program they have ever had, but a nice enough one. Last year in q4 there was a 50% program which really made it attractive.

    I've noticed more and more with DC that the redemption opportunities are drying out. Not as easy as it used to be, and this is for itineraries 9-12 months out!!! Economy is easy enough to find, but biz is getting tough, and First is almost no existant, especially on LX and LH....

    Anyone ever tried purchasing miles for an under-18 family member? As far as I see, you can't log into their accounts directly.

    Has anybody had trouble trying to buy these miles? I have made the following purchases of DC miles:

    Sep 2010: 20K + 4K bonus for me
    Oct 2010: 20K + 4K bonus for my family acct. member
    Mar 2011: 20K + 4K bonus for me

    Both in late March and now, when I try to purchase miles for my family acct. member (on my cc, like I did last October), I get the message that this account has already purchased as many miles as is allowed in a year. Any ideas as to why I get this message, or how to deal with it? Thanks!

    You're allowed to purchase a maximum of 24k miles per year. It looks like since you last purchased miles for that account in October, it won't let you do so again. What is the rollover date for that account? It might be based on the membership year.

    My membership year ends in July, so I have successfully purchased miles for my own account twice in my current membership year (but only once each in calendar years 2010 & 2011).

    My family account member first earned Silver status in January, but joined sometime in 2010. Do you think that's the difference?
