Final Thoughts

While the double miles do not count toward Mileage Plan elite status, this is an easy way to earn some extra miles if you were already planning cross country flights.

Unfortunately, this promotion is not helpful for me because I live in Seattle, but if you live in one of these areas, go ahead and just register for the promotion. It would be a bummer to fly one of these routes and not get the double points.
