How To Get Airline Miles Without Flying
Most people are probably familiar with the frequent flyer programs, like Star Alliance or Sky.
A nice way to get free flights. Unfortunately you really need to fly a lot to get enough miles for free flights, which is not affordable for everyone.
But there are ways to get frequent flyer miles without even entering an airplane.
I want to go give you a sum up of those possibilities.
– Credit Cards – Earning One Mile For Each Dollar You Spent
Probably one of the most effective ways to get miles. Get a mile per dollar that you spent.
Nearly every Airline that is member of a frequent flyer program, has its own credit cards today. So there is a big variety of different options. Look up your preferred airline and check for their credit cards. Its possible to earn up to 30000 Miles by applying to on of these cards. All you need to do is fulfil the minimum spending requirements and remember to cancel the card before the annual fees will be charged.
– Hotels – Miles While You Sleep
Some big Hotel chains have partner programs with airlines.
Therefore you get a certain amount of miles per night you spent at those partner hotels.
The website rocketmiles.com offers a great service, by booking a night at a hotel through this site you earn miles for each night.
– Restaurants – Eat For Miles
The so called Dinning Programs are a network of partner restaurants of airlines.
You will need to register your credit card at the dinning program of your choice. Now you will get miles each time you eat and pay with the registered card at a partner restaurant.
– Car Rentals – Drive For Miles
Many big car rental companies, like Hertz, Avis, Sixt, Europcar…..have partnerships with airlines. You get Miles each time you rent a car at those companies.
Hertz for example offers 500 miles each time you rent a car, for Miles and More Members. (Frequent Flyer Program of Lufthansa)
– Shopping – Miles Per Purchase
Many airlines also have their own shopping portals at the web.
You earn miles by purchasing products through those portals.
Furthermore airlines have agreements with big shops, where you might shop already anyway. A helpful site in this relation is webflyer.com.
– Promotion – You Can Get Miles For Nearly Everything
It pays off to check out the offered promotions of your FFP from time to time.
The Airlines have a huge variety of partnerships in all kinds off fields.
For example miles for a Netflix registration, miles for getting an insurance, miles for getting a certain internet plan and so on….
– Surveys – Answers for Miles
The websites e-miles.com and e-rewards.com are offering miles for taking part in surveys.
