Continental sent out their weekly “News and Offers” email to subscribers yesterday and I noticed an offer for 200 “free” OnePass (soon to be MileagePlus) miles for new e-miles memberships and a sweepstakes with a grand prize of 100,000 miles.
There’s a bit of work to get those 200 miles, though, as it requires you sign-up and activate your free membership by February 29, 2012, then participate in a little marketing research.
I haven’t signed up as of yet, but probably will in the coming days just to check it out and see if continued participation might yield a few hundred miles here and there. Miles earned in the program can then be redeemed with a variety of airlines, either Hilton or IHG Priority Club on the hotel front, or converted into Amazon gift cards.
Given the terms state it takes 4-6 weeks for the 200 miles to post, I’d recommend plugging your OnePass number in to avoid any posting issues once legacy MileagePlus numbers disappear on March 3.
