hoping for a there and back on early December. thanks for your help!
San Juan, PR
Welcome to MP...some useful information:
Length of stay at destination?
I would love to be nearer a bigger airport. The best I can eke out is 5cpms and that is rare so I try to make my trips meaningful. ORD I think should have easy runs.
I'm managing a UA Mileage Run from CMH through ORD to SFO and back December 7-9. I paid $260 round trip last week - ORD to SFO is just under 2K miles each way - but with some creative routing you can probably hit your 4,000 miles needed. Or buy a mileage booster and pick up more miles - but you may end up paying more for the miles.
More input would be a great help for those persons that would like to help.
It would be on *A with a one day round trip preferable. Obviously looking for best cpm I can find. Thanks!
still hoping for some help after the clarification, thanks. UA or *A from ORD, 0 overnights, mid-week ok,

you are awesome, thanks. Yes, I checked ITA but could not come up with enough miles at this price. What was your search precisely?
ORD -SFO; iah ua+ // SFO ->ORD; UA+
then did another one ORD -> SFO; ua+ // SFO - > ORD ; iah ua+
Both did flex calendar with a 0-1 return time.
IAH on the way there was cheaper than on the return
