I feel your pain. 202 EQS last year.

There were a few manufactured segments... when RIC-IAD-ORD-IAD-RIC (my usual run) costs $7 more than RIC-ORD-RIC... I take the extra segments. The value of the extra EQS/EQM is well worth the 45 minute connect and $7. And if there is a mis-connect, I usually get a few bucks in travel vouchers, a hotel and some food vouchers. Helps rack up more Hilton points, if nothing else.

The goal is 3MM lifetime miles, so every 500 mile minimum segment of RIC-IAD is a win.
