500 Free United Miles

You can have 500 free United MileagePlus miles just for joining their free dining program. (HT: Mommy Points)

There’s no restaurant spend required, the miles are just for doing the online signup by July 10.

If you do credit dines at participating restaurants to the program, though, they’ll give you 500 more bonus miles for each of your first five qualifying transactions within 30 days of creating your online profile.
