Do you fly United often either personally or for business trips? Do you buy a lot of United tickets for yourself or for others? If you answered yes to either of these questions, pay close attention to what I am going to tell you. United has a little known program called United.com Club. It is a way to earn a little bit of money as an airline credit every time you book a ticket at united.com
There is a $25 membership fee that you must pay first and then every time that you book a ticket through your account at united.com you earn a $5 credit that is put into your United Travel Bank to be used for future travel on United or United Express.
IF you are booking a ticket for someone else, you will still get the credit as long as you are signed in through your Mileage Plus account with United.
Five dollars is not a lot of money for booking a flight but it is something that is being offered (for a fee of course) , and must be applied toward future United travel. If you plan on booking more than 5 trips this year on united.com, you’ll make your money back on the annual membership. These credits that you receive can only be applied to ticket prices not taxes and fees when you redeem miles for an award booking.
