The Thanks Again network sent out emails to members earlier this week offering a 500-point bonus when you register your phone and Visa card for text offers based on the use of your credit card.
The Thanks Again Network
For those of you who haven’t heard of it, the Thanks Again Network is kind of like a combination of shopping portal and dining network where people who register their credit card can earn a variety of reward options including miles on Alaska, Delta, United/Continental and US Airways, or 2% cashback rewards when shopping at select merchants and restaurants, many of whom are at over 100 airports, though there are also merchants and tourist attractions in various cities. This is a completely different company than the Rewards Network dining programs, so you can link your credit card up for both programs.
How It Works
Rather than earning a set mile or point number per dollar, members of the Thanks Again Network earn bonuses based on spend thresholds met within 90-day periods starting with the enrollment date. The thresholds are:
- Earn 500 bonus miles/points when you spend $250 or more (2 miles/points per dollar spent)
- Earn 1,500 bonus miles/points when you spend $500 or more (3 miles/points per dollar spent)
- Earn 4,000 bonus miles/points when you spend $1,000 or more (4 miles/points per dollar spent)
- Earn 25,000 bonus miles/points when you spend $5,000 or more (5 miles/points per dollar spent)
500 Bonus Miles Promotion
I’m enrolled in the Thanks Again Network with a Visa, so I was sent an email offer to earn 500 miles for enrolling my phone to get targeted texts with deals and offers from Thanks Again merchants.
I’m not too worried about getting spammed because the page says I’d only receive up to 5 texts per week, and that I can opt out at any time, so might as well earn the free Delta miles! Even after the introduction of the Chase Sapphire Reserve, the Chase Sapphire Preferred is still a fantastic choice if you want to avoid the Reserve’s $450 annual fee, earn 2x on all travel & dining and earn a 50,000 point sign up bonus.
