Buy an eBook, Get 1,000 United Miles:

Earlier this week, we announced the sale of the first two eBooks I have co-authored, Hawaii for Nearly Free and Orlando for Nearly Free.  The books are designed to give you a comprehensive A – Z guide of how to earn and use miles to cover airfare and hotels at those destinations.  The initial feedback for the eBooks has been really good, but we wanted to sweeten the pot further as a thank you for those willing to try the books out early on in the process.

FFT e-bookSo, with the help of Boarding Area, we are running a limited time promo to give 1,000 bonus United miles to the next 50 people who purchase one of the eBooks.

The eBooks sell for $17.99 each, which is actually less than you could buy 1,000 United miles for, so this is a great time to pull the trigger if you have thought about getting either of those eBooks.

Get $20 Free via Apple Pay and Wells Fargo:

If you are like me and have Apple Pay set up on your iPhone, then you can get a $20 statement credit if you use a Wells Fargo Credit Card to pay for a purchase via Apple Pay by November 30th.  If you use a Wells Fargo debit or prepaid card with Apple Pay, that will get you a $10 statement credit.

  1. That’s actually false. You can buy 1,000 united miles by simply going to staples and buying a $200 gift card with your chase ink card and transferring those 1,000 miles into your united account. This is merely a trick to lure people into buying your book.

  2. Just picked up a copy of the Hawaii guide. It’s a very clear, concise read so far. I’m not the most organized person, so I know that I will get a lot of use out of the checklists and other organizational tools!

    Oh, and thank you for the United miles. I’ve been saving up for a trip to next summer and those 1000 miles will be just enough to put me over the top 🙂

  3. Billy: We’ll post here, on the Frequent Flyer Toolkits website and Facebook pages, and on the FFT Twitter feed (@FlyNearlyFree) when our supply of United miles is exhausted. We still have this bonus available right now. Just be aware that this is a limited-time bonus and when the miles are gone, they are gone.

  4. Please cautious about posts such is FREE FREE FREE. That’s the best way for card companies and airlines to take away any deals out there.
    Second, “The eBooks sell for $17.99 each, which is actually less than you could buy 1,000 United miles for, so this is a great time to pull the trigger if you have thought about getting either of those eBooks”. The actual cost of 1000 united miles is about $6 to $10.

  5. Flabbergasted, no tricks here. There are lots of ways to earn United miles, but if you wanted to just go online and buy them from say, they would cost you more than the price of the book + the miles.
    Naritabound, awesome! So glad you are enjoying the book and that the miles will go to good use.
    Billy, sounds like Andrea got your answer, but yes, we will take the ad for the 1,000 bonus miles down when they are gone.
    Jim, let me know where you are buying 1,000 United miles for $6 – $10 because I’m heading there right now! I’m guessing you mean there are ways to earn them with that out of pocket cost, but I don’t know of a way to outright buy them for that, and if I did, I would load up!

  6. @MOMMY, I said 1k UA “ACTUAL” value will be around $6 or $10 max. airlines can sell a mile for 2 to 5 cents however they want but that’s not actual value.
    I am sorry for e book for how to go to Hawaai with miles and points for $18 is a rip off. There is no such things as everything free like you are saying. Even if you book awards for everything, it is NOT free. Don’t kill the last few tricks left there for the rest of us.

  7. Forgot to mention this,

    Even if I am a newbie to miles & points, I wouldn’t pay more than $2.99 for your book. That’s my honest thinking & opinion. Not less or more that that.

  8. Jim, thanks for the feedback. I do think if you are getting just .6 – 1 cent in value from your miles you probably need a different strategy as you should be getting double that. If you aren’t, a straight cash back card would be a better play than focusing on miles.

    • Keith, since Paris isn’t on sale yet, this promo is sadly limited to Hawaii and Orlando. We appreciate you asking though and hope to have Paris out there soon!

  9. Update: The supply of bonus United MileagePlus miles has run out. Thanks to everyone who purchased an ebook and received 1,000 bonus miles with their purchase! Let us know how your trip planning goes!
