I'm around 2200 miles short of Co elite.
I just read about some deal with Co onepass called onepass maximizer.
It allows you to to get EQM's without flying, anyone have info how it works?

It allows you to buy EQM's.  You can buy a refundable ticket, but EQM's, and cancel the ticket.  You must also buy RDM's to buy EQM's.
The EQM's post instantly regardless of when the flight is for and remain even if the ticket is canceled.

When CO started selling EQM's they were at 4 cents per EQM and 2.7 cents per RDM (I was offered 30,000 RDMs for $810 and 30,000 EQMs for $1,200).  Now they are up to an insane 22 cents per EQM and 3 cents per RDM.

Look for the cheapest flight out of your place on *A or CO partner.

Do you have someone who could fly?
If you do, book a CO ticket in your name and have them fly it.
The only trick is getting that person past security. (other flight or Airtran U etc....)
