MyPoints shopping portal has a new promotion for United Airlines MileagePlus members in United States and Canada.
You can get 500 free miles for merely joining and being a member (free) for minimum of 30 days. You can get additional 1,000 bonus miles by spending $25 within 30 days of joining with MyPoints affiliated merchants.
You can access Mypoints web page for this offer here.
Note that the expiry of this campaign is unclear.
I have used MyPoints in the past but not in the recent past (for years as a matter of fact). This is, however, good way to get 500 free miles and may be 1,000 more if you are spending $25 over their merchants.
This is really the perfect way of extending the validity of your or your family members’ MileagePlus miles.
Mame sure that you are using an email address that is ready to receive several emails per day from MyPoints…… That’s the downside of the free miles.
Here are the terms and conditions of this offer:
Earn 500 MileagePlus miles for registering and activating your MyPoints account, and enjoying your membership for 30 days. Earn an additional 1,000 MileagePlus bonus award miles when you make one or more qualifying purchase(s) totaling $25 in your first 30 days of membership. Exclusions apply. Check your Inbox for details on completing your registration as well as other great offers from MyPoints.com, Inc.
Miles accrued, awards, and benefits issued are subject to change and are subject to the rules of the United MileagePlus program, including without limitation the Premier® program (the “MileagePlus Program”), which are expressly incorporated herein. Please allow 6-8 weeks after completed qualifying activity for miles to post to your account. United may change the MileagePlus Program including, but not limited to, rules, regulations, travel awards and special offers or terminate the MileagePlus Program at any time and without notice. United and its subsidiaries, affiliates and agents are not responsible for any products or services of other participating companies and partners. Taxes and fees related to award travel are the responsibility of the member. Bonus award miles, award miles and any other miles earned through non-flight activity do not count toward qualification for Premier status unless expressly stated otherwise. The accumulation of mileage or Premier status or any other status does not entitle members to any vested rights with respect to the MileagePlus Program. All calculations made in connection with the MileagePlus Program, including without limitation with respect to the accumulation of mileage and the satisfaction of the qualification requirements for Premier status, will be made by United Airlines and MileagePlus in their discretion and such calculations will be considered final. Information in this communication that relates to the MileagePlus Program does not purport to be complete or comprehensive and may not include all of the information that a member may believe is important, and is qualified in its entirety by reference to all of the information on the united.com website and the MileagePlus Program rules. United and MileagePlus are registered service marks. For complete details about the MileagePlus Program, go to united.com.
All shopping and travel purchases (excluding Amazon.com, games and the MyPoints Store gift cards) of at least $25 each (excluding taxes, shipping & handling and special processing fees) made through the MyPoints.com website and emails (including BonusMail®) are eligible toward this promotion. This offer is eligible for new members only, and purchases must be made within the first 30 days of membership to receive the bonus reward. Any purchase returned or exchanged will be subtracted from the qualifying purchase minimum. Participation is subject to the MyPoints Terms of Service.
