MMMondayMemo: Enter 100x+ for United’s Billion Mile Giveaway
In case you’ve missed it United is giving away a Billion Miles. 100 lucky people will win 1 million miles. There’s a couple ways to enter for the contest. The first is using the link here for United.com where you enter all your info. The second is using your United card from Chase. Every single time you make a purchase you are entered. The Monkey Miles Monday Memo will show you a clever way to maximize your purchases so you can enter 100x+ for United’s Billion Mile Giveaway.
Using your United Card requires no registration: It’s automatic
Let’s be honest. If you have the United card you probably signed up for the whopping 70k bonus that was offered earlier this year, or you signed up a while ago, and if you’re like me, you don’t even use the card and it sits in a box or a drawer. Well this promotion has provided the incentive necessary for me to make some purchases – so PROPS to Chase and United for offering a lucrative reason to push spend through the card.
The promotion gives you an entry for every purchase
HUGE DEAL. If you’re like me you like to buy things on Amazon. Well Amazon has a great way of loading the account with small amounts at a time. So here’s the thing if you want to buy something that is $50….load your account with $0.50 reloads. Instead of getting 1 entry for a $50 purchase, you’ll get 100 entries.
Step 1: Go to Amazon.com – Pull down Your Account and open it
Step 3: Manually enter the value you’d wish you reload – I do the least…$0.50
Step 4: Use a key stroke to go back…keep cursor in place. This will conserve time. Rinse and Repeat
I have done this twice now for roughly $150 worth of merch – that’s over 300 entries
It took me about 10 minutes to load 150 times for each $75 purchase. The thing I will tell you is that the account has a delay and it usually takes up to 15 minutes after you’re done loading for the balance to be accurate. I had loaded about 30 times at this point and my balance only reflected 13 loads.
Obviously there is no guarantee I will win, but I’m gonna get as many entries as possible
I want to fly Polaris and am banking Miles to do so.
I’d also love to try out ANA’s first class
Recap: Use $0.50 Amazon reloads to max your chance to win 1 million United Miles
