Half off Awards help

My friend and I Would like to Vacation in St John. I heard of the promo for half miles needed. I currently have 10K. I don't really use CO. I can probably get the needed miles for a ticket with a milege run. What would I have to do for a CO flyer with lots of miles to ticket my friend for SFO-STT? What about myself too. The promko ends NOV 15th. So I would like to travel before than. Could anyone who could help tell me what I need to do. We are trying to travel on a budget. Using points for the hotel.. and fishing rods for dinner Thanks for any help.

Well, I see you live in the Bay Area, you can get 6100 status miles for $99 San Francisco - Columbus (by selecting flights that transit Newark). This is a good deal, and if you do a few and get to Elite status, you'll start earning bonus miles, too.

You may want to check with Continental, as different agents may tell you different things, but I was trying to book a similar itinerary using the half off awards to STT, and I was told that CO only flies to and from there on Saturday and Sunday only. The information I was given was several weeks ago, but call for award specifics to see if your trip will be possible and if any dates are available. You may want to check out "coupon connection" to trade.
