United Airlines through their MileagePlus program is offering a 25% bonus on partner offers (shopping, dining, hotel stays, taxi rides, etc.) if you register via an invitation email that should have been sent to you yesterday. This is a 25% bonus on juts about every partner offer they have–and you have now until December 31, 2012 to spend and earn! While this may not be necessarily a valid reason to completely out of your way to participate in one of these offers, it’s definitely a worthwhile click (or sort through your inbox or spam for the email) to just register for it. Please note: you HAVE to register via the link in your personalized email for this offer. If you are not already enrolled to receive MileagePlus offers and partner offers via email, you can do so now–and there’s a chance they’ll still send you the email invite.
Also, for a limited time new MileagePlus Dining users can receive a 1,500 United Miles bonus if they sign up now and spend $50 or more at a single MileagePlus Dining restaurant within 30 days. Here’s the link for the welcome bonus.
These are great deals considering United Miles are valued at roughly 2 cents a mile, or $20 for 1,000 miles. Think of the dining experience as a small rebate. It’s also a great opportunity to treat your friends! (Or have everyone split the bill and you can put it on your miles-earning credit card, and soak up the extra welcome bonus!)
With San Francisco to Europe flights starting at 30,000 United Miles each way for saver economy tickets, this will definitely help get you closer to that free trip to Europe (or Asia)!
