    Hello:

    I've never done a milage run before so please be kind.

    I need about 3,000 United miles by September 13, 2013. I would prefer to fly out of SNA. I found some flights from SNA to MCO for $300.00 total, but I'm hoping there are better deals out there. Can you help?

    I just signed up for the Opinion Miles Club, answered questions in a couple of surveys and 650 miles posted to my account within a couple of days.

    Couple questions for you... Do you need 3000 award miles to reach an award redemption or do you need elite qualifying miles? If elite, what tier?

    I'm SNA based also and I've never found great MR's from SNA. I always have to go to LAX. As for your flight, that's not a bad deal for a flight if you need to travel on those dates but it's a horrible MR for the sake of a MR. But you'll get over 4k mikes R/T for it. There are plenty of longer runs to do for less CPM (cents per mile).

    Hope this helps.

    Makes sense...I have been through AA or UA, so the hub isn't as far.
