One round trip (3 segments) short of peasant status on United (long term loyal flyer, but low travel year). Any ideas for mileage runs out of Chicago?

When you say peasant, you mean Silver? Literally not worth anything. I wouldn't even pay $10 for Silver.

@A1 - silver still gets you one free bag (including companions), premier access security/boarding (inc companions), and economy plus at check-in (plus 1 companion). That's worth more than $10. Probably not $300 though...

Segments or miles? I kept my status based on miles not segments.

GRR and AZO often under $150 r/t. ~26 min in air and out and back schedules common. Could hang with the same flight crew for four legs. Watch the weather. Though could prob talk then into courtesy status if flights got cancelled....

Use google maps with price cap and United filters to find the easiest mileage run option

SF sees sub $150 deals all the time.

MN? MX is always cheap on off days

I'm doing a mileage run to Portland from Houston to get to 1K - it was $250 rt

MSP R/T is usually between $150-$200, not sure what the holiday pricing is but might be worth taking a look

I just had an interview for a pretty big tech company, and it was the final step for an offer (just a one on one with the hiring manager, skipped the panel portion). During the interview, I didn’t get to speak at all! The hiring manager spoke the entire time and didn’t ask me any questions, I had to practically chime in to tell her about myself. The only thing she asked was if I had any questions about the role (which I did ask). Thoughts about this? Not sure what to think or how it turned out.
