I have to admit that I am not a huge fan of airline dining programs. The main reason is that there are literally zero participating restaurants in my area where I would want to dine. So unless I wanted to eat somewhere locally simply for the sake of accruing bonus miles through a airline dining program (which would be ridiculous), the only time I earn points through one of these programs is when I am out of town.
However, I’m signed up for all of them. United Mileage Plus Dining, Rapid Rewards Dining, AAdvantage Dining, SkyMiles Dining…maybe more. Are there more? Maybe less. The point is, I can’t keep track.
So this is not a post about how great dining programs are, because honestly they haven’t been of much use to me. HOWEVER, if you are not already signed up for the United dining program, this offer is definitely worth it. Even if you don’t have participating restaurants in your area and you can’t keep track of your account.
Just make sure that you sign up through the official link!! I somehow made the mistake of just randomly signing up, and I missed out on all of the extra miles I could have received. (Grrr…)
On a side note: who are these people?? Seriously, I earned a grand total of 368 miles this year with the United dining program…
Maybe one of my goals for 2014 should be to turbocharge my dining programs. I just know I am leaving thousands of miles on the table. If anyone out there is a Top Diner and would like to give me some tips, I would really appreciate it.
What do you think about Dining programs? Have you earned gazillions of miles with them this year?
