    I just applied for and received the United MileagePlus Explorer card with a 50K mile bonus. I must say, I haven't flown UAL in years after my defection to AA, but this deal was too good to pass up...so here I am ready to give the old bird a new try...any suggestions on where 2 can go with these miles? I am based out of LAX...thanks for your thoughts!

    Thanks for the chart link, WA. So basically, nothing different than over at AA, but hey, 50K free miles is still 50K free miles!

    One Japan/Oceania to Oceania Reward RT in Business Class... Just think... Tokyo to Cook Islands or even the French Polynesia!

    If you think a bit more out of the box, two business class saver one-ways from Dubai to Zurich would be 55k -- about $6700 in airfare.

    If you add an authorized user, they'll bump it to 55K.

    Sounds like a tax-evasion trip.

    Awesome, but lacks that panache of a scuba Dubai do, and too many of those darn kids to deal with.
