200 miles short of a 30,000 mile award

I am 200 miles short of a 30,000 mile award. Any chance they will let it slide? I want to avoid spending $ just for the 200 miles and using 1000 AMEX points for this... Any other ideas to get a quick 200?

You can purchase 1000 miles for $25 (before tax) on americawest.com. Go to the "Frequent Flyer" tab, followed by the "Purchase Miles" tab. The Flightfund Dept will not make any mileage exceptions.

You took the words right out of my... keyboard?

Anyway, send some flowers. They'll post within 72 hours of purchase, and you can send even their cheapest bouquets and earn 600 miles (700 if elite), which should put you over the top.

Actually a $8 lunch plus tax and tip got me past the 200 mile mark with FlightFund Dining for miles... with one of those 20 miles per $ special resturants... but Thanks for the ideas...
