If you are like me and I think you are since you are reading my travel blog, you tend to be the one that books tickets for yourself, family members and perhaps friends. I don’t mind doing it and I like to feel helpful yet it can be a lot of work looking for different dates, departure airports and arrival airports. I have about 4 airports within 2 1/2 hours of where I live and I feel like I need to check all of them so it does take time.
Since I live near a United hub I find that many of the flights I take are with United than with any other airline.
A benefit that United has for those of us who book for ourselves and others is the United.com Club. For a $25 annual fee, you can earn $5 back on every ticket you purchase at united.com. The money is deposited into your travel bank after the trip is completed and then becomes available to you to purchase travel on United and United Express flights.
This may not sound like much but if I had enrolled the beginning of the year I could have earned $30 so far and I still have 6 more flights to purchase tickets for which would add in another $30. It isn’t a lot of money but as my mama told me, watch your pennies because they can turn into dollars.
For all the fine print, follow this link which will take you to the United.com Club site.
