Suppose you had 1500 frequent flyer miles. Which would you rather spend them on: air fare or a digital music download? With today's introduction of the MileagePlus Digital Media Store, United Airlines is betting that some of you will say music. Or a movie.
You can spend 1,375 miles and get Blown Away. That's the name of an album by Carrie Underwood. Or how about a movie called God Save My Shoes? You can rent it for 460 miles, or buy it for 2,545 miles.
