Deal Details

Thanks Again, another service that tracks where you spend your credit card at, has a special enrollment bonus of 1000 free miles for enrolling in their version of Visa Offers.

I've only tried doing this through United to get United Mileageplus Miles. Here is how you do it:
  1. Go to United.com
  2. Go to > Mileageplus > Earn Award Miles > Gifts, flowers, wine, daily deals and more > Thanks Again [thanksagain.com]
  3. Register for a new Thanks Again account (existing users, you can sign in as long as you originally registered through United. Otherwise, you won't be able to get united miles.)
  4. Once you're done registering, click on "My Account". (This is the "My Account" on the Thanks Again website, NOT on United.com.)
  5. Underneath your billing info, there should be a link that says "Click Here to Join Thanks Again Offers." Click on it. (There is also a skyscraper-style vertical banner ad on the right side that you can click.)
  6. The offer should appear saying you'll receive 1000 miles for signing up for this Visa Offers. Note two things: 1) you have to enroll your cellphone to a text messaging service (up to 5 texts a week), 2) you have to register a visa credit card with this offer. They will track the spending on that card.
  7. That's it! Just wait. Once you're registered, bonus miles should deposit in 4-6 weeks to your Thanks Again account. Awesome. (Takes an additional 4-6 weeks to post from Thanks Again account to your United miles account.)

Free miles? Let's celebrate. woot

Additional Notes:
  • You are enrolling your phone number and registered card directly with Visa. Thanks Again is just a partner. Visa already has your personal info, they just want your permission to track your spending for marketing and sales purposes, so they can send directed ads to your phone.
  • You can always opt out of the text messages by replying back via text "STOP"
  • If you have enrolled in a previous Visa Offers program, as long as it is not through Thanks Again, YOU ARE STILL ELIGIBLE FOR THIS PROMOTION!

What OP failed to highlight is that, besides having a United Mileageplus account and signing up for the Thanks Again offer, you also need a mobile phone number with text messaging service plus a Visa credit card in order to complete all the steps to earn the bonus miles. Just letting you all know in advance before you discover this mid-step.

  • Miles post to your Thanks Again account in 4-6 weeks after you enroll in the offer
  • Miles will automatically post from your Thanks Again account to United MileagePlus in 4-6 weeks after they post to your Thanks Again account. (So total time to see miles looks like anywhere from 8 to 12 weeks.)

good find, thanks... one note, the "My account" is not the united.com one, it's a Thanks Again link after you're logged into your new account. It took me a little while to find

There was another one for MyPoints for 750 United miles.

1750 miles for a few minutes was well worth it.

They send an SMS / text to your phone. Then you punch in a 3 digit alphanumeric
