One day short of Qualifying for Silver on Trial

I nominated a friend to trial silver a couple months ago. She's going to come within one day of hitting 7500 miles during the trial. She has a return flight the day after the trial expires that would put her over 7500. She called US and asked if they could extend her trial one day, and I called the Chairman's Desk and asked the same thing, but we weren't successful (I'm fully aware that it would be an exception for them to do so).

Any ideas of how she can get the last few miles she needs?

No idea where she is, but maybe she can find a quick RT out and back in a few hours.

Only way to do it is to fly. Find the cheapest fare on US metal and fly it before the end of the trial. IMHO, having any status is better than none, so find a way to do it.
