I found this article very informative on how the airline and credits card bonuses work.

Very interesting thanks for sharing. Of course, the UA maximizer can be achieved at 2cpm, the article seemingly failed to mention the percentage of miles that go entirely unused, the interest value of the banks paying for the points months ahead. and other inaccuracies, but there were some fascinating details there.
