How many miles are we talking about? If it's 20-30k, don't expect more than 1-1.2cpm

Hmmm so it might not be worth the hassle for me then. Thnx

Perhaps I'm being conservative, but if it's <50k you'll have a hard time moving it.

I would be putting in around $20-25k so it would take me awhile to hit 50k.

I have a question on BankDirect checking account. I have a joint account, but the money is well over 200K. The part that is over only gt 50 miles per $1000. I am thinking about open a new checking account, but i read in its web site, it only allows one checking per household. Will it work if i open one use my company address or/and switch main applicant? Thanks!

Bank direct is changing the rules. I just got notice that they are only giving the current ratio of miles up to $50k!  This is a serious game changer. Goes into effect 6/1/13. Did anyone else get this notice?

I got the notice too.  Looks like this deal is almost over for me.  144 for 60k aa miles is ok but I can probably do a lot better with my money.

It's nuts. But it was GREAT while it lasted. Got hundreds of thousands of miles from them. :)
