UA: DFW MR Sugguestions?

I need roughly 16,000 EQMs to reach my next ellite choice for 4 more SWUs. Does anyone have any suggestions for flying United out of DFW? I'm coming up with a 6,000 mile routing (12 EQMs) for about $500 via Den-LAS-SFO-IAD-ORD-DFW...maybe a few more thrown in.

I've got Oct. 22 - 25, Nov. 13-14 and December up to the 15th open. Any ideas or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

I assume 4 SWUs are generally worth $400-500, right? Seems like a logical move to me. And in my situation it will likely mean a fourth quarter CR1 (I think I am roughly 2,000 miles short at the moment). With that said I could be adding business travel that could add up to 4,000 or so EQMs...more/less...it's open...but I may not be short the full 16,000 EQM -> so all suggestions are welcomed!

Getting them from United It's 4 SWUs for hitting 125,000, assuming you do it in the fourth quarter - not sure about the case if you were already at 125,000. There are some posts on it in the UA forum. Two with the new promotion in addition to the two you get with the 125,000 mile Elite Choice program.

But how about some more suggestions on DFW runs - I've looked at HNL and it's a bit pricey. Right now I'm at about 16,000 EQMs for 10 segments on a pretty brutal run around the west and east for $402.

Hey, this fellow DFW traveler would love to hear about the brutal 10 segment journey!
