  1. Why not create your own Contest with the readers — and bloggers are not eligible to earn entries – since you know – all of you are masters (almost) so to speak..!

  2. Forget the contest – just give them to me!

    But seriously, I get really frustrated at the enter as much as you like contests. Either I don’t put effort in and don’t win. Or I put effort in and lose the time and still don’t win. Ye hear me?

  3. Hi B – We are looking to create someway to give away the miles to readers. Our own AA tip contest could work.

    dwh – Good idea. We promise not to do unlimited entries on this one.

    Mike – No unlimited entries, I hear you all.

    Naif – Now that is a good idea.

    Anyone other ideas? Curious if most would rather have a better shot at 1k vs a lower shot at 5k.

  4. Congrats on being one of the winners! 1k would be nice, spread the joy around a bit.

  5. As someone who has earned over 2 million miles on American Airlines, I am hoping nothing will happen to my miles during their bankruptcy process or if they merge with another carrier.
