I know what’s going on in your mind: you must be thinking that one must have to travel a lot in order to get frequent flyer miles and buy expensive air tickets? But that’s not true; here I have listed a few simple tips and tricks through which you can buy miles without traveling. So it’s time to earn and burn the miles!
Airline Dining Schemes
Many airlines offer dining programs for earning extra miles, if you love to explore different restaurants the way I do you can easily earn miles. All you have to do is simply get yourself registered with an online program or linked any of your credit cards with the account, every time you dine out and use your credit card you earn around 4 – 6 miles per dollar you spent. So the more you dine, the more you earn, this way you can earn miles simply by dining.
It’s not always a good idea to shop at a store or for some random products you have never used, so many airlines have signed deals with famous stores where you already have shopped at. Best Buy, Target, Barnes & Noble, Macy’s and Safeway these are some famous retailers at where you can shop and earn miles. So you never know, buying any cosmetics could pay off for your next trip. Mostly all the airlines offer shopping programs, so you can check out which program is offering the biggest bonus.
Credit Card Bonuses
Opening credit cards are the best and fastest way of earning miles, but you just have to make sure that you maintain them responsibly and don’t let them go in debt. Sign up for credit cards which provide the best mileage program and are easy to manage. The more credit card accounts you open the better as you will earn more miles, but you can always close them once the fee starts kicking in.
Earning miles through surveys is one of the easiest way? I always prefer answering a few questions, many websites offer miles in return of completing their surveys. The site deposits the miles amount in your account after a few months and the good thing is you can sign up for these surveys with multiple user emails.
Go For A Test Drive
I don’t know whether you will believe me or not, but you can earn miles for things like taking a test drive of the new model of Acura. Yes many car companies have started this as a strategy to get the feedback from the people and offer them miles in return. I personally earned miles by testing a headphone from some company. These deals come and go so it’s best that you keep an eye on them or sign up for their newsletters.
Social media is everywhere; hence, it has also made its way in the air travel world. You can easily earn miles on Facebook, and all you have to do is click the “like” button. Many airlines and hotels are willing to dish out many as 500 miles in exchange for a simple “like” on a page or a post which is a great deal.
