r u sure u wanna use points on domestic travel? if yes, just use the continental points which need to be used for flying as apposed to the other stuff which can be used for hotels etc.
In order to understand recursion, you first need to understand recursion.

Generally you don't get a very good dollar value out of using them for domestic flights as opposed to international premium class.

Most airlines will charge you 25,000 miles (and up for better availability) for any domestic flight.

It would help if you posted the dates you wanted to fly...
