Sign up for the UA Visa (bonuses up to 10k miles)

Sign up for MCI (3-5k bonus upon enrollment)

Mileageplus dining lets you earn 10 miles/$ at participating restaurants, so spend a bit over $200 on meals and you're there.

Buy a bunch of stuff through portal sites that award miles (e.g. goldpoints)

But a subscription to InsideFlyer, collect the 2500 starwood points, and transfer them into UA miles.

Lots of other possibilities...

how quickly do you need the miles to post?

You could get someone to hold the award reservation for you, and then ticket with your miles once they'd posted...
