  1. I went ahead and joined Uber with VX offer, but it seems that I probably have to take an Uber ride to earn 800 elevate points.

    I see some details (w/ personalized code) under ‘Promotions’, saying ‘Take an Uber ride and earn 800 Elevate miles!’ by a certain expiration time.

  2. Having no luck combining bmi Destination Miles with BA Avios. The BA tool says bmi & BA records don’t match, but doesn’t say what doesn’t match. I’ve emailed bmi twice with all my info from BA & asked them to change my bmi records, but no response in 7 weeks. Any suggestions of what email address to write to?
