Seems like a good way to extend miles expiration date.

I didn't find any FT thread with Google.
This was posted on a Chinese blog by the guy who posted to Reddit.
And then on DDF.
Live forever or die trying.

In store purchase would not have shown the mile redemption glitch

I was using it to earn miles.  Who exactly are you  calling a loser. The person who redeemed when the rate was bad? If you're gonna go knocking people at least be specific :P

Correct was referring to the first person who was redeeming their UA for Amazon GC and discovered this glitch.

Even with a dirty account with 600 miles in it, it might have been worth it.

It's actually a great way to empty out small denomination accounts, even now when Amazon is dead, but others still work, and I'm sure will be back soon, but it will be a different redemption amount.

Was this for e-cards? If not who said they would honor it?
