5000 United Miles Booking Bonus: Book a Trip and Get a Friend to Do So for 5000 Miles

Through August 1 the ETA app is offering 5000 United miles.

  • Book your first trip with the app for 3000 miles
  • Refer a friend who makes a booking with the app and earn 2000 miles

I wrote about their United small business program offer back in October.

ETA says their competitive advantage is quickly helping you figure out the trip that’s right for your schedule and preferences so that booking is done in 5 minutes.

  • They integrate with your calendar and know when you need to travel
  • Find you the best value for price and book air, car and hotel with one click

A preferred seat on your favorite airlines? A quiet room at the closest hotel from where you need to be? ETA sorts and filters through hundreds of options so you don’t have to.

Personally I like total control over my trips, though I know plenty of people who prefer to delegate it but don’t have a competent assistant for that.

Update: worth noting that the minimum booking cost (including tax) is $200 to qualify.

  1. I’m confused– does the travel itself also have to be by August 1st? Or only the booking?
