PNW Mileage Run: United SEA-EWR-MIA for $200 (2.9 CPM)

It's been a while since I've done one of these, but I've grown frustrated seeing largely high fares. My typical requirement is under 4 cents per elite qualifying mile, but I'll start making judgment calls if it runs into the grey area of 4-6 cpm.
