The United Airlines MileagePlus Dining filled up my inbox with a big offer for miles through their dining program.
My offer allows me to earn 10,000 miles if I dine 10 times in the next roughly 40 days. That’s a lot of miles, but also a lot of dining out.
I don’t dine out a ton when at home with the family. I also don’t have a ton of work travel scheduled over this time period. Couple that with the fact that the restaurant choices for the dining programs have thinned out a bit for my tastes, and this is a tough promo to achieve.
The offer appears to be targeted, as Mommy Points noted she got a slightly weaker offer than mine from the American Airlines version of the dining portal. All of the dining programs are essentially run by the same program and you can sign up for all of them, though you can’t have a credit card registered with more than one airline’s dining program. Sorry, no double dipping!
Mommy Points brings up the idea of purchasing gift cards to achieve this bonus. I don’t suspect I’ll go that route, but if you do qualify for the 10,000 mile offer, it’s almost half of a domestic coach ticket if you achieve all ten transactions. It’s certainly something to think about…..
