Bose is giving away 150 Skymiles for simply watching a minute long video on their QC15 headphones and answering a single survey question (the correct answer is: All of the above).

Free miles - my favorite kind

They did the same for American in January – here’s hoping they run it with a lot more airlines!

As an aside, I own the Bose QC15 headphones and don’t travel without them. At $299 they aren’t cheap, but you can earn 1,500 miles for purchasing them until September 12, 2011, plus my American Express Insite Toolbar alerted me that Bose.com will get me 4x Membership Rewards points if I pay with an American Express card. You can also get 350 points if you do an in-store demonstration.

These are a great gift idea for the frequent traveler in your life. Even if you are sitting near a screaming baby, these bad boys will drown-out most noise. Sometimes I even sleep with them on with no music just to drown out ambient cabin noise (though I have to admit they are a bit bulky so it’s difficult to sleep on your side with them on). Overall, they are one of the few items I don’t travel without.
