I need 500 United miles (488 to be exact) for an award booking I'd like to make. Just cancelled my United card recently. What's a quick/easy way to get 500 miles? I can't think of any good ideas. As a last resort I'll just convert some SPG, Hilton, or Priority Club points to miles, but don't like the exchange ratios. Thanks for the ideas in advance! Edit: One annoying facet of this "problem" is that I have 500 orphan Continental miles, but apparently you can only transfer UA <--> CO in increments of 1,000+ currently.
