What's the deal?

Sign up to MyPoints and get 500 bonus United MileagePlus miles. You can also earn an extra 1,000 bonus award miles when you shop online with a MyPoints partner such as eBay, Groupon or Walmart.

What's My Points?

MyPoints is a site where you earn reward points for online activity such as shopping, reading emails, playing games, searching the web and taking surveys.

How do I get the deal?

Register for MyPoints here. To earn the 500 bonus miles, you need to activate your account and have a membership for at least 30 days.

If you spend $25 or more with a MyPoints partner in your first 30 days of membership via the MyPoints website, you'll earn another 1,000 miles.

What else do I need to know?

Allow 6-8 weeks after completing any qualifying activity for the miles to post to your MyPoints account.

Check out all the terms of MyPoints before joining, as even though many reviews are favorable, others mention that the daily emails are excessive and points can take a long time to post.
