It pretty much means that taking the price of this ticket (however much it is) and divide by the amount of miles you will receive, and the result is lower than $0.03, which is not bad.

This is interesting for people wanting to keep or earn a status on UA or other star alliance programs.

Airfare / miles earned > $0.03

In other words, for people wanting to earn miles, if less than $0.03 is a good price, the final price does not matter, as long as the math works.

Oops didn't see the title said the price, however, my expanation still makes sense.

This happens when sleeping < 3h + overeating before the fast...

I'd assume without checking, that UA earns @ least 9900 miles on the round trip, based on the price.
