I'm right at the threshold of a free ticket for my United Mileage Plus miles account, and I wanted to bump myself above 25,000. So I was shopping around for the longest way to get from ORD to GSO and back. They offer direct flights and connections through IAD, but I tried something that I'd never done before and looked for a multi-city route.

After some searching at Travelocity, I found that I could go from ORD-CLE-IAD-GSO and back for only $15 more than a nonstop ORD-GSO round trip flight! I searched some other cities, and the price was the same when I substituted EWR, CMH, BWI and HAR for CLE! I mixed and matched until I found the route that gave me the most diverse mix of planes; all the choices were the same price.

I'm sure that if I was able to find a bargain, it would work for other routings on other airlines. I thought I'd share this tip, for those who need miles or for those who just like to fly more than they have to.

Why don't you just join the long distance phone carrier that United partners with? I got 14,000 miles to join MCI WorldCom through AA.
