There is currently an opportunity to earn 500 free United miles. The whole process is very simple and takes only a couple minutes. All you have to do to earn the 500 free United miles is download and register with the Prosper Daily app on or before June 13, 2016.
While 500 miles are not a lot, every bit helps. I always take advantage of any easy opportunities to earn free miles and they add up over time. Another plus is that earning these miles will extend the expiration date of any existing United miles.
What is the Prosper Daily App?
According to the website, Prosper helps you stay on top of your money, credit and identity. It tracks your spending from all your bank, debit and credit card accounts in one app, alerts you to suspicious transactions and track your monthly updated credit score. I registered one of my credit card accounts but I have not really had time to explore the features of the app.
Here is how to sign up:
The 500 free United miles will be awarded to any United MileagePlus® program member who downloads and registers with the Prosper Daily app on or before June 13, 2016.
To start visit http://www.prosper.com/daily/united/500 and you will be directed to complete an online form and provide some basic information (just last name, zip code, and United MileagePlus number).
If you complete the form on your smartphone you will be directed to download the app. If you complete the form on a computer you will be asked for a phone number in order to receive a text that you need to click on to receive your miles. (I initially completed the form on my computer but since my text never arrived, I signed up on my phone again.)
According the terms of the promotion, the 500 United miles will be posted 6-8 weeks after download and registration.
