Your Chance to Win in The Billion Mile Giveaway

I nstead of wallowing in the gloom and doom that as of today, the American Airlines AAdvantage frequent flier loyalty program becomes the last of the legacy airlines to switch from being based on distance to being based on revenue — as if that was some big surprise — how about we focus on something which has the potential to be positively advantageous for you?

Starting right now, you have a chance to win up to one million MileagePlus frequent flier loyalty program miles, as literally 140,100 prizes worth a total of one billion miles in The Billion Mile Giveaway is being given away by United Airlines. You will receive an automatic entry for a chance to win every time you use your eligible United MileagePlus Chase credit card for all eligible purchases through Friday, September 30, 2016 at 11:59:59 in the evening Eastern Daylight Time.

If you are not a holder of a United MileagePlus Chase credit card, you can instead log in here and follow the instructions to be entered into The Billion Mile Giveaway as often as you wish during the promotion period — but each entry must be manually keystroked by you.

  • The 50 United States
  • The District of Columbia
