Continental and United Miles for Donations to Japan

This post contains references to products from one or more of our advertisers. We may receive compensation when you click on links to those products. For an explanation of our Advertising Policy, visit this page.

UPDATE: Continental is now a part of United.

On Monday I wrote about donating points and miles for charity and noted that if you donated cash, you could get up to 500 American Airlines miles.

Now, United and Continental are joining in on effort to encourage people to donate. So if you were going to donate anyway, you might as well get some miles.

And as of last week, Continental and United now allow transfers in between accounts in case you want to make donations from both and then combine the miles.
