I know many people out there buy miles and points if the price is right.  I just refuse!  It takes the true pleasure and fun out  of being a miles and point collector for me.  If I wanted to spend cash on a trip or get a discounted rate I know where to find that too.  I like FREE travel!  How about you?  Free points add up over a year.  I’m willing to do deals that require work and management of resources but not spending money that I wouldn’t otherwise have spent buy miles or points.  I love “pack of gum” credit card offers and those really keep my account balances hefty but these little deals are not to be missed either.

So here is the latest FREE offer.  It’s from MyPoints which is a shopping portal where you earn points for shopping through their site.  You can then use your points to redeem for cash, gift cards, miles, and now facebook credits.  For simply signing up, MyPoints will deposit 750 United miles into your account as a welcome bonus.  There are constantly so many offers for FREE miles/points, you just need to be tapped into the right source to make sure you don’t miss them.  My goal is that the Miles Momma site will always be that resource you can count on.  I’m continually scouring the net for every FREE offer and top earning miles/points deal out there.  My goal is to provide that information to you as soon as I have it.  If you ever know of a deal that I haven’t posted yet, please do send the information into me and I will post that day.  I know many of faithful readers already do this.  Thanks so much!  I always appreciate your finds!!  Thanks for reading and enjoy your FREE miles today!

Remember if you already have a MyPoints account, be sure every member of your “clan” gets one too!  If you read the terms and conditions below, there is not age requirement listed.  Both my children have their own emails and MyPoints accounts along with many other frequent flyer and loyalty accounts. 😉  They are little world travelers and need to build the “travel bank” too!

Don’t know what a “pack of gum” offer is?  It’s when you receive a bonus on a credit card that requires no minimum spend to earn the bonus and has no annual fee or the annual fee is waived for the first year.  I called it a “pack of gum” offer because you just need charge 1 pack of gum when you receive your card then put it away in your desk draw and wait till the billing cycle closes and you’ll have the your miles or points.  That is what you call a “sweet” deal!
