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!


Terms for the Thanks Again Offer:
Quote :
*Prepaid cards including Visa Buxx, Visa Gift cards, Visa Healthcare cards, Visa Incentive cards, and Visa TravelMoney, are not eligible for enrollment at this time.
Offers delivered to your mobile device in connection with Thanks Again Offers are valid in the United States. Certain restrictions may apply.
**Upon clicking "Earn 1000 Bonus Miles >>" or "Get Mobile Offers" above, we will send your name, email address and member number to Visa to simplify enrollment in Thanks Again Offers.
1000 Bonus Miles Terms And Conditions: To participate in Thanks Again Offers and receive 1000 Bonus Miles you must: (i) be a Thanks Again member registered to earn miles via Thanks Again and (ii) enroll in Thanks Again Offers using an eligible Visa card. Bonus miles will be deposited to the enrolled member's Thanks Again account within 4 - 6 weeks after successful enrollment in Thanks Again Offers, and any earned miles will be transferred to the enrolled member's valid frequent flyer account within 6 - 8 weeks after successful enrollment in Thanks Again Offers. Limit one (1) set of 1000 Bonus miles per Thanks Again member, regardless of the number of Thanks Again accounts. Offer expires on 9/30/12 and enrollment in Thanks Again Offers must be completed by 11:59 PM Pacific Time on 9/30/12. Void where prohibited. Subject to standard Thanks Again Membership Terms and Conditions.

When will my rewards be credited to my member account with my Participating Reward Provider?
Generally, your account will be credited within 6-8 weeks of your purchase.

I have t-mobile. I receive the texts but it won't verify. Odd because I just signed someone else up (At&t) with no issues.

Thanks, it asked for my Visa teice. Once while signing up for thanksagina and then while signing up for the Visa offer. Is that right?

I signed up using a virtual number..
Can you tell me what virtual number service you used and it if was successful? I have used a texting service on my Itouch and a virtual number, neither of which have received the confirmation number (although they receive other texts).

Yes you need to enter it twice.
You can also reply to the text message with Stop right after you get the first text from them so you wont get 5 per week from them.


I also signed up for "mypoints" for 750 free miles
I also signed up for 6bottles of wine for 42 dollars shipped to get 2,500+294 =2,794 miles from Vinesse Wine clubs which is a pretty great deal imo if you need miles and like to drink wine.
Even if the wine is super cheap 4-5dollar per bottle wine then your only out 12-18 dollars for 2794 miles.

Did you sign up the previous Visa offer(earn 500 points) before you did this 1000 points one ? Are you using the same phone # and Visa card #?

Thanks.

google voice doesn't work for short code text messaging (5 or 6 digits). You will only be able to send/receive texts to regular phone numbers (7 digits) on GV.

AFAIK, there aren't any free ways to send/receive the short digit texts. You will need a real cell phone to get this to work. If you don't have free text, maybe try and find a friend that will let you use their phone number. Another option is going into a store that has cell phones on display and using their phones to get the confirmation code (such as an Apple Store).
