And don't forget about picking out milkshakes and rivers too....I've been lazily filling out forms while I watch the olympics in the background each night.

I was looking at the odds of winning the grand prize which they estimate at 1:1,668,600. (I assume this is per entry.) So, between credit card purchases and form filling, I think I will have around 1,000 entries by the end of september. That will bring the odds to 1:1,668 of winning the grand prize. My opinion is that points are really worth about a penny each, not the 2.7 cents they estimate. So, the value of the grand prize is more like $10,000. If you assume that the $7,500 they give you simply goes to paying taxes on the prize (appx retail value), then the expected value of this whole activity is about $6, so totally not worth the time it takes to fill the forms out by hand.

On the other hand, its pretty good odds for winning the small 5,000 point prize, and 1:16 for the 25,000 point second place prize. Not to mention your now increased ability to recognize street signs, store fronts, rivers, trees, etc.....

that's a lot of taxes to be paid by the grand prize winners... United lists $27,500 as the value of the grand price of 1 million miles.

think carefully of the tax implications before accepting the prize
