is this for real???

I am 450 miles short to renew for gold and haven't got the time to fit another trip in before 8 Jan - unless i do an MR during the bank holidays which I am not keen to... or are these just for Destination miles and not Membership miles?

Thanks for any help.
While it's not really any help, I bought 20k a couple of weeks ago so it is possible.

Did you manage to buy miles? I am facing the same problem as you. Does it have to be a minimum ammount of miles on your account to be able to buy miles?

Tried to buy 20K miles, but getting the following error after entering all CC (AMEX) details:
Please correct the following errors:
* We are unable process your payment. Please try again.
Of course all details are correct

Thanks. I only want to pay with AMEX due to the need to get my spend for the BA 241 voucher

Had no joy with BA Amex. Gave up a used BMI mastercard. Went through OK

Has anyone worked out how frequently you can buy these miles (if it actually lets you buy them)?
Is it 20k per calendar year, per membership year, or per 12 month period?

In other words could I buy 20k now and 20k on the 1st of January if I wanted to?
