Just noticed a 7 day advance Saturday only night stay fare for $318 RT.

Mileage summary:
ORD-STL 1000 status (elite levels)
STL-LGW 4199 status
LGW-STL 4199 status
STL-ORD 1000 status

For an extra $118 you can buy STL-ORD RT for 2000 more status miles.

Total run: 12,398 status miles plus bonuses (elite + online booking) !

This is, unfortunately a fairly restricted fare. Valid only Mon-Thur beginning sometime in October. Really restricts the ability to use it for a mileage run. Also, the taxes involved in flying to London are pretty prohibitive, adding about $80 to the fare. Total fare including taxes for a departure in November is $397. Thus the cost per status mile is $0.0382. A little high, but reasonable. Add the flight up to ORD and the cost per status mile actually rises to $0.0421.

Total miles and cost including all bonuses
total miles....(17,497/20,597/26,796)
cost per mile..($0.0298/$0.0253/$0.0195)
