Welcome to FlyerTalk, ranferi64.

To achieve Premier Silver for the remainder of 2013 and for all of 2014, you must fly either 25,000 Premier Qualifying Miles (PQM), or 30 Premier Qualifying Segments (PQS) by December 31, 2013. Whether the Premier Silver benefits are worth the time and effort...that's entirely up to you. Here's some more information regarding Premier Status.

As far as mileage run options out of Austin, United has cut capacity to Austin, IIRC, meaning fares may be a bit higher due to less supply. Look to other cities, like San Antonio, for better fares. You are in the right place to look for cheap fares, so keep on checking back. But if you do stumble on to a nice fare out of those cities, please share because I am sure a lot folks over here would like to know as well.

On a side note, the general rule for a good mileage run is something that runs less than 4 cents per mile (CPM).
