Travel Forums General Talk Request

I have a class project in which I'll be going up against other students to try and come up with enough airline miles for a trip before them. It dont matter how they are obtained as long as I come out the winner. So I thought if anyone would have any extra frequent flyer miles and wanted to help me out I thought this might be a way to go about getting them faster. Thanks

Interesting request... But posting it on a travel site - good luck with that! How big is your bank account?

Actually, are these "real" miles, where you get to use them in the end - or "hypothetical" miles and the original owner retains custody??

There are also lots of ways to get frequent flyer miles without flying - and in some cases, without spending a cent! Poke around on the airlines' web sites, under the "promotions" section or the frequent flyer area. You'll often find that the airline has a relationship with supermarkets (get miles every time you shop), florists, rental car companies and more. Visit Mileage Workshop or FlyerTalk for more ideas.

and technically i understand they are not transferrable...
