Free and easy airline miles are my very favorite kind, so here are three reminders about some free and easy airline miles that are currently available for you and other members of your family!
1,000 Free American Airlines Miles Available Through June 12th:
American Airlines AAdvantage is offering 1,000 free bonus miles if you watch some short videos about the American AAdvantage program and answer some simple questions. The whole process takes no more than 10 minutes (and you can still do other things at the same time), and at the end you will earn 1,000 bonus miles that I would value at around $15 minimum, so that’s not bad for 10 minutes of “work”!
Earning those miles will also reset the 18 month clock for the expiration of your American Airlines miles, so that is really great in case you happen to not use your AAdvantage account very frequently. This is the sort of promo that is worth doing for the whole family to make sure no one misses out, so make sure to get the AAdvantage numbers of all the accounts you manage ready so you can knock this out all at once. Or make your kids “work” during their summer vacation and put them in charge of this project!
Up to 1,750 Easy United Miles:
This offer is via MyPoints.com and it awards up to or 1,750 easy United miles in two stages. First, you can get 750 United miles just for completing the sign-up process, and then another 1,000 miles if you make an eligible $25 purchase at an online retailer in the first 30 days. I can’t swear 100% this isn’t somewhat targeted, but it is working for lots of people. I’ve used MyPoints before and the gist of their service is that you earn points by doing things like shopping online that you can then convert to things like gift cards or airline miles. My 750 sign-up bonus points posted very quickly to my United account, and now I’m just waiting for the 1,000 for making a $25 purchase.
Up to 9,500 Free Spirit Airlines Miles:
Spirit Airlines is currently giving away 1,500 free miles if you take three quizzes and get all the answers correct. The whole process should take you less than 10 minutes and 1,500 miles isn’t bad – especially if you can add it to the 8,000 “Hate Miles” that are still available. Spirit Airlines award flights start at 2,500 miles each way for their cardholders and 10,000 miles each way for non-Spirit Airlines card holders.
