Realtytrac is a paid service that allows you to research real estate properties. The British Airways E-store (which is also currently running an amazing promotion with Nordstrom) is currently offering 3,000 British Airways Avios points when you sign-up for Realtytrac. Simply log-in and then search for Realtytrac in the top right search bar and you’ll see the offer.
The great thing is that this offer applies to free trials and you can currently become a Realtytrac for free for 7 days. After that point, you will be charged $49.95 per month for premium membership, so it’s critical that you cancel your membership before 7 days, unless you really want this service.
Per the promo: Special Terms: Customers earn after selecting the 7-day trial or the monthly subscription and completing the sign-up pages; customers earn after a sale is concluded.
That last statement about a sale contradicts the first part about the free trial. However, TPG reader TJ, who tipped me off about this sent me a screenshot of his pending activity and he is showing 3,000 miles for Realtytrac and he only did the free trial. During the free trial they try to sell you on a couple other products (like the magazine Foreclosure – I’m sure that’s quite the page turner!), so I guess they hope enough people buy the add-ons or forget to cancel their membership.
Overall, I think this one’s worth a shot as long as you remember to cancel before the 7 day trial runs out. It only takes a minute to sign-up and to cancel you need to call customer service at 1-877-888-8722 8AM – 5PM Pacific Time. I’m going to wait a couple days for my points to show as pending before cancelling. Will keep you all updated!
Big hat tip to TJ’s Weblog!
