I think a great feature to add would be the option to buy frequent flier miles with Unicons.

That's be great, right???

You can do it if you have the Unicorn Horn American Express card (aka the "Iridium Card," presumably because it could bankrupt Motorola).

Each $1 spent on the card yields 1 Preferred Membership Premier Options Plus Uberpoint. So let's say you spend $100 and get 100 points, the lifetime maximum. You can then purchase Grand Privileges Ultimate Passport Choice Club Supermiles at a 1:1 ratio in 100 mile increments. You get a 10-point bonus just for opening an account, but due to a bug the bonus is converted based on the current exchange between the euro and the Supermiles' native currency, the Lithuanian lita, yielding only 3 points. But hey, a bonus is a bonus, and it's totally worth it because GCCPUP Supermiles is running a promotion with Delta Air Lines' Skymiles with an unbelievable 1:100 exchange ratio— minus 10 points for international processing, so try to do it in a single transaction.

You can then do a Points.com conversion at a 10:1 exchange, which earns you a 1-point bonus with coupon code CANTPOSSIBLYBEWORTHTHETRANSACTIONCOSTSBETTERTHINGSU022, noting that it's not UO22 but U022 (as in "you aught two two"). Points.com has a partnership with Union Pacific Boxcar Hobo Priority Bonus Circle Pass "beancans," so you can transfer the points to beancans at a 100:1 ratio. It's a big reduction, but we're after unipoints, and let's face it, Zimbabwean dollars are worth a lot more than Skymiles these days.

Now, for the conversion. IF you are Royal Titanium Worshipful Star God-Emperor Elite on AirMegamerger, you can use beancans to gain admission to any VIP Olympian Galactica Inner Sanctum Lounge in the Central Asia or Antarctica regions. A one-time pass is only 3 beancans. But only the agents assigned to the clubs handle unipoint transactions. You can convert your remaining beancans to unipoints at a 10:1 ratio, minus 100 beancans for the transaction fee.

It's totally worth it.
