Cheapest/easiest way to register some MP activity

I have several hundred thousand miles in my UAL account but I haven't flown them or their partners for a while, and my miles are about to expire, which seems like a shame.

What's the cheapest/easiest thing I can do in the next few weeks to bring those miles back from the brink of expiration? Flying isn't an option as I have a full slate of SkyTeam flights on the horizon. I am briefly in the USA for the next week but am not normally here, if that's relevant. Don't want any more credit cards.

Looks pretty easy.

Happy Travels!

Thanks, that was remarkably easy took about 5 minutes to set up the Continental account and do the transfer.

I guess I should work on my search skills rather than bothering you all, but in any case I do appreciate the replies and the quick solutions to my problem!
