The Pudding Guy

Some "unbelievable" and "too-good-to-be-true" deals really are so. Here's a story about "pudding guy", a Californian civil engineer named David Phillips, who spent $3140 on pudding, and as a result got 1,253,000 frequent flyer miles. The articel says:

"In the end, David and his family collected 1, 253,000 miles from his puddings and soups. He split 216,000 of the miles among Delta, United, and Northwest airlines. The remaining 1,037,000 miles were posted to his American Airlines account. And since he topped the million mile mark, he automatically became a lifelong member of American Airlines AAdvantage Gold club. David now has lifetime access to a priority reservation number, priority boarding, and additional perks. "

Unbelievable? Yes!
