AAdvantage Lifetime Goal-d

I came across a thread recently on FlyerTalk that brought up the point that all miles count towards the AAdvantage Million Mile/Lifetime Gold; i.e it doesn’t matter if the miles were flown, bonus, earned from credit card purchases, etc.

Although I reached status for the first time last year and logged just over 50,000 miles on American, I am suddenly seeing a new goal :-P. I suspect it would be a challenge to earn the requisite 800,000 miles or so before the end of the year without going through some extraordinarily expensive combination of flying and spending, it seems that while I will make Gold (or Platinum) again for next year I can also put myself on track to get to lifetime status the following year. In particular, with the help of the Citi AAdvantage cards (see FatWallet discussion), I think I may get halfway there this year. If you know of other good deals on earning miles on American, please let me know!
