For five days only there is a special promotion through the United Shopping Portal. Receive 1,000 United airline miles and two months of the Wall Street Journal (both digital and print!) for only a dollar.
This promotion will cost only a single dollar. You’ll earn 1,000 united miles plus two free months of the Wall Street Journal.
The catch? You need to cancel before the two months or you’ll be auto charged $30+ dollars a month. Also you must not cancel before 45 days. So you need to be disciplined to consider cancelling when within the 45-60 day range, if you do decide to cancel. You’ll also need to cancel over the phone, by calling 800-568-7625. That is, if you decide to cancel. Maybe you’ll want to continue your subscription.
Read Daraius’ in-depth write up on this.
I talked to people all the time about miles and points. For those who have gotten over their, “There goes Steve with his crazy his program,” phase, many realize the benefits they can earn.
Though even among those, they may jump on a huge bonus of 50k or 100k miles, but shun the smaller promotions. 200 miles here, 500 miles there, as not being worth their time.
It adds up, I promise. 1,000 miles is a nice promotion, basically for free.
Check it out and good luck!
