That said, I think gold is definitely worth your money, considering the four certs (tricky but possible to use) and the jump in bonus redeemable miles.
And for a mileage run, there are a few cheap flights in December that would take care of your needs. Someone posted Milwaukee as a great value today.[/QUOTE]

I agree. Going for gold (no pun intended) would be worth it. I don't really value the GGUs...I have a hard time using them. Still, I've had a decent average in complimentary upgrades as a Gold, and the 100% bonus mileage is a big selling point for me. The same day changes and waived fees are also pretty pleasant.

I've said it before elsewhere, but I'm a fan of mileage running with a purpose. Go somewhere cool, even if its for a long weekend. Much more rewarding than a same day turnaround, unless that's your only option.
