MyPoints is offering 1,500 MileagePlus miles when you join and spend $25 within the first 30 days. If you don’t meet the $25 spending requirement, you still earn 500 miles.
If your’e unfamiliar with MyPoints, it’s a shopping portal much like the ones offered by the major airlines. You simply click through their links to shop at major retailers and earn bonus points for doing so. They partner with many popular online merchants and offer you a chance to earn points by taking surveys and clicking on email ads. Points can be redeemed for Marriott gift cards, MileagePlus miles, and hundreds of other merchant gift cards.
Redemptions start at as little as 1,600 points for a $10 gift card from merchants like Foot Locker, Old Navy, and others.
