Mileage Run Discussion - Mile Run Newby
Nov 9, 08, 2:47 pm
Greetings; As I'm new to being close to reaching status, I've attempted every site I can think of to obtain my 3,500 miles on Continental for certain travel dates for a certain $ threshold. I am running low on creativity and patience and was wondering if anyone had any tips for searching the net?
Any help at this point would be appreciated.

Welcome to FT. Did you check out the sticky at the top of this page (http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/showthread.php?t=454485)? Spend an hour reading this and checking out the related links.
BTW, this forum is for:
Mileage Run Deals
The place to post airfare deals conducive to mileage running, including possible pricing errors and unusually low fares. Note: Weekly or other regularly posted fare sales are generally not considered unusually good deals.
Mods will probably move your thread to:
Mileage Run Discussion
Discussion of methods to maximize miles and/or points either through trips dedicated to no other reason than the miles/points, or through creative alteration of trips to extend their earning capacity in often unique ways.
Stick around. There's lots to learn. Warning: Mileage Running can be very addictive.

It might be best to list your city and price so people could help you out:)

There are some very good transcon deals available on SkyTeam carriers right now.
For 3500 miles you need at least a ORD-LAX-ORD r/t.
I recommend checking the respective deals that are already posted here in the forum.
