The Mileage Plus Visa has a pretty nifty refer-a-friend promotion right now, whereby the referrer gets 15,000 miles and the person referred gets a 30,000 mile sign-up bonus. To take advantage of this offer one has to apply via phone at 877.858.5188 and mention code C7G4, and there’s a limit of two referrals per person.
I just got my first Mileage Plus Visa a bit over a month ago. As many of you probably know, I’m not a huge fan of collecting United miles outside of actually flying with them due to their Starnet blocking. Nonetheless I signed up for three reasons: a) the sign-up bonus is nice, b) all my other cards are either American Express or Mastercard, and it’s useful to have a Visa card for certain promotions that require it, and c) the annual fee is waived for me since I’m a 1K.
Anyway, if you’re thinking of signing up for the card, I’d be eternally grateful if you’d let me refer you. I hate begging on the blog, but for what it’s worth (as I’ve said many times before), I don’t make a cent off of my blog, but of course I do it because I enjoy it. If you’d let me refer you I could at least slightly justify the hundreds of hours of love I’ve poured into the blog to others that tell me to get a minimum wage job instead. 😉
