Frequent shoppers
get the
point
to go the
extra mile
BYLINE:
By Beth Teitell
BODY:
Last
year,
Kim
Ambach returned
to her
split-level ranch
to
find
it
ransacked.
But
discussing
the
burglary recently,
the
special-events coordinator sounded almost cheerful."It was a miles bonanza," she said, recalling how she and her husband put
their
newcomputer and stereo on
Visa
and were reimbursed by
their
insurer.
The miles they earned helpedfly
them
to
Hawaii,
where
they
enjoyedawonderful vacation,marred only
slightly
by the
fact
that
their
rental
car -
rented
with
a
card
that
gave miles
but
not break-in insurance - was vandalized. "Now we have to pay a fee," Ambach said. Live by
the
mile,
die by the
mile.

Psychiatrists have
yet to
diagnose
a
Miles Compulsive
Disorder,
but
it's sweeping
the
country. The Mile has gone places the Green Stamp never dreamed of, becoming so big itconstitutes
a
shadow currency."Frantic" is how Dorothy Anger, an outreach coordinator with Project Bread, described herreaction last winter when she realized 7,000 miles would expire if she didn't use
them.
She
wanted
to go to Belize, which is 35,000 miles "away," but she had only 32,000
miles.
She
starting making purchases, a portable phone, a vacuum cleaner, but she needed more.
Then
the fickle mileage god smiled on her. A friend mentioned she was planning to buy acomputer
that
very day. Anger's pulse quickened. Couldshe put it on hercredit card?
The
Mile
as a
unit
of currency was introduced by American Airlines in 1981. That year, there
were
1.8
million people trading
in it. The
number
has
grown
to 40
million people,
and so
hungry are
they
for miles
that
they've changed the way companies do business.Sotheby's,forexample, stopped taking American Express cardsin thefallof1995, afteranartcollectorput a $ 2.5

after clever bulk mailers started
putting
gigantic orders - one was $ 30 million - oncredit cards.
Randy
Petersen, editor of
InsideFlyer,
says heirs' and divorcees' disputes over miles are so
common
he no longer takes note.
But
back to the more benign aspects of the
Mile.

And
then there
are all the
jokes.
