UA: IAH - SEA - IAD - IAH (347.40) - Sept. 8th


This is my first post as I am just getting starting into mileage runs. I am based out of Houston, so I have been looking for some decent single day runs. I found this one and wanted to see what you all thought. It seems pretty good considering the cost? I just verified that this is good Sept 8, 15 and the 22nd of September.

gcmap shows a total of 5,369 mi. So,347.40/5369=6.47 cents per mile (cpm). Mileage runs are effectively PQM (Premier Qualifying Miles) runs. The lower cpm, the better deal you will get. So, 6.37 cpm is way too high for PQM runs. Because United gives 2x distance PQMs for First class flight, you might be better off to purchase very cheap First Class ticket.
Good luck.

Since this doesnít qualify as a Mileage Run because of the high cpm and doesnít qualify for the Good Deal thread either, Iím closing this thread.
