Expiration Date – September 30, 2016
By: Liza Weeks
How many times do you swipe your credit card in a day? Morning coffee, a quick lunch, a few cocktails at happy hour with friends, maybe some takeout for dinner - probably more times than you realize. It’s not a bad thing, especially since many credit cards offer great travel perks for frequent use.
The United MileagePlus Chase Visa card just upped their game by giving away a billion miles in a sweepstakes you can enter simply by signing up or by swiping your card!
It’s really that easy! Now until September 30, 2016, every time you use your MileagePlus Chase Visa for purchases in the US you will be automatically entered to win a massive amount of bonus miles!
100 Grand Prize Winners will receive 1 million bonus miles and $7,500 to put towards taxes
10,000 First Prize Winners will receive 25,000 bonus miles
130,000 Second Prize Winners will receive 5,000 bonus miles
Since we value MileagePlus miles at 1.5 cents per mile, the grand prize is worth $15,000 (not including the additional $7,500)! First prize miles are worth $375 and second place bonus miles are worth $75.
And you don’t even need to swipe your credit card to participate. Go to the sweepstakes website and you can enter as many times as you’d like until September 30, no purchase necessary.
Strings attached? Sure there are. Here are the important ones:
- You must be a member of United’s MileagePlus program to participate, which is free to join
- Participants must also be at least 18 years old and a legal resident of the US, District of Columbia or Guam
- Employees of United, Chase, Millennium Communications and Marden-Kane are not eligible, nor are their family members
- ATM transactions, returns, cash advances, balances transfers, non-US-dollar purchases, Interlink-processed transactions, purchases authorized with a PIN, and payment of late and overdraft fees do not apply
Spend money, get miles. That’s probably why you got your MileagePlus Chase Visa to begin with. But now you have the chance to win a lot more miles than you would normally receive, and we’re talking a lot! We’re talking a million! And why not increase your odds by entering online too? It’s completely free!
