I love getting “partner” offers from Airlines and Hotels in my inbox. Although it does take 2 minutes to sign up and you might get some annoying spam in the future, free points are free points.
Just the other day, we saw 2,000 free points from Priority Club, well now United has their own offering.
For signing up for MyPoints and being a member for 30 days, you get 750 United miles.
If you aren’t familiar with MyPoints it is like a free online shopping portal / email promotion site. Basically you earn MyPoints for clicking on links, signing up for free services, buying things, etc. They do send you annoying emails but after 30 days, as it says in the fine print, you can close your account.
I had joined MyPoints years ago through a similar United promotion, got my miles, and then stopped using MyPoints.
Coincidentally, this afternoon when I was looking to renew my subscription to Time Out Chicago, I went to Evreward.com to check to see if any sites had bonuses for Magazines.com purchase and although I’m sure it is a glitch, it is showing that Magazines.com via MyPoints is earning 500 points per $1 spent or 365% cashback.
I’ve already done this United promotion, so I am not eligible and couldn’t log into MyPoints to confirm this offer of 500 points per $1 spent, but if anyone signs up, please let us know if this is actually the offer on MyPoints!
