Before I sign my life away to the credit cards...does anyone have a ton of airline miles they might want to pass on? Trying to do a ticket from Denver to Sydney and just checking every option.

How many miles? To get to there? I might be of use to you... I think the most you can grant to someone is 15000 miles at least online with United.

OK. I just did a quick price check and mileage update to see how many miles et cetera. If you were to pre-book a month in advance you are looking at about 2500.00's round-trip. I am sure there are cheaper but I wanted to make sure I could even help ya. It says on my United link that it would be 80,000 miles to book that. Not bad. Looks like I need to get my butt out there :-)

So how soon are you looking? Last minute was like 12,000 dollars....

During a single calendar year, a member may receive up to 15,000 miles and may transfer up to 60,000 miles from his/her account. Plus it would cost $185 for those 15,000 miles.

Or you could buy 60,000 miles for $1600. If you already had 20,000 miles that would be cheaper.

I have worked out deals for friends before and what happens is I have to buy the ticket for "her". She could then pick it up at the Airport. I would just need some personal information. Name, Date of Birth, and Drivers License number. Might be some other specifics because I can only gift 15000 at a time. If I remember correctly the fee for domestic travel is like 75 bucks to book. So you are looking probably at least 3 times that amount but I don't know.
