Gift cards to stores you'll be going to anyways? I bought a couple of home depot and Sam's club ones.

I've tried a few accounts including a Premiere Executive, and it says that I'm not eligible.

I got the 2 for 1,000 promo :D

Buy $100,000 in GCs to Sams Club in $10 increments.  Get 10,075,000 miles.  Fly to CA and return the GCs (Have fun with that one!) and your only cost is the plane ticket.

Anyone want to build me a Firefox macro for the GC purchases?

Of course then the mileage mall comes back and says that Sams Club GCs don't qualify and you're SOL...

Sams Club GCs are good at Wal-Mart.  Does anyone know if you can buy Wal Mart GCs with them?
PJ pays .9 for SC GCs and .91 for WM GCs.  Also they require $25 minimum per GC, so if you sell to them you would have to get multiples combined somehow.  Anyone know if they'll do that?

At that rate if you bought $100,000 and sold to PJ at .91 (Yes, they'll prob stop buying more long before then, but they don't expire) your cost will be $9,000 for 10,075,000 miles or .00089 cpm.

CA law says that GCs of $10 or less must be refunded in cash if requested.  Good luck with 10,000 GCs though :D

How many GC's did you buy ?:)

 I'm also nervous they will come back and say they don't qualify. I just bought as many as I would use anyway in the next year just to be on the safe side.
