This isn’t anything new, but I thought I would spend a few minutes this lovely Thursday afternoon to chat a little bit about an old but still active offer for United MileagePlus miles. This offer is strictly valid for United MileagePlus Explorer Credit Card Cardholders only.
The offer is for 4,000 United Miles after your first paid month of Netflix. Keep in mind that this means you’ll be getting two months of Netflix with this offer, since the first month is always free for new customers.
Now, if you’ve already joined Netflix before, but have never signed up using your United Explorer Card, then you’re still in luck. Ever since Netflix went all digital (streaming only) for their regular accounts, Netflix now only tracks individuals based off of your email address, credit card, and any loyalty program number you enter (i.e. MileagePlus number).
Meaning, just make sure you use an email address you haven’t previously used before for Netflix. Again, keep in mind that you 1) need to be an United Explorer cardholder to take advantage of this 4k offer, and 2) you need to pay for at least one month of Netflix! (So you can’t just sign up for the trial and cancel immediately.)
I personally value United Miles at 2 cents each, which equates to $20 for every 1,000 miles. So trading in the $8 that you pay for one month of Netflix for $80 worth of miles is definitely worth it in my opinion. You are essentially getting each mile at 0.2 cents each! A fifth of the cost of what they’re valued at. I personally completed this offer about half a year ago, but would definitely recommend those of you who haven’t yet to get in on this while it’s still active.
