PointsHound has a very good signup offer for 100 free United, Delta, Hawaiian or Aeromexico miles.
All you need to do is to sign up and add one of these airlines as your program. You then need to choose the account where you would like PointsHound to send your sign up bonus.
PointsHound is a new hotel booking engine that awards miles instead of cashback for hotels booked through their service.
You just choose the city and the date. You will be then presented the price and number of miles you would earn by making the reservation through PointsHound. Seems to be rather easy.
Note that you won’t usually earn stay credit or hotel points for bookings made via third party. Some chains like Hyatt and Hilton do honor the status level benefits even on third party bookings. Starwood is very strict on this matter. No status benefits are honored on non-direct bookings.
This is an easy way to get 100 miles in any of the four programs mentioned above. It is also a good way to keep your airline frequent flier account active. I already signed up and waiting for my 100 United Airlines Mileage Plus miles to show up.
Personally, I would only use this service for cities that doesn’t have any of the hotels from the chains that I participate to and I couldn’t get cashback (in cash) from any of the cashback sites that I use. I believe that I may end up using this service couple of times a year. Please note that if you sign up using the link above, I will get 100 miles for referring you.
