1,000 Free United Miles for Joining BCKSTGR

Right now when you join a social media marketing platform called Bckstgr.com, you can earn up to 1,000 free United miles. Initially, I thought the site looked a little bit sketchy and I was hesitant to enter my United login information, it is legitimate and I’ve received my 1,000 United miles, so I feel comfortable passing this one along.


When you sign up for BCKSTGR, you link your various accounts – Twitter, Facebook, Foursquare, etc. – and when you tweet, check in, post on a wall, fill out surveys or watch videos about its advertising partners, it rewards you in virtual currency – like United miles. Sometimes it’s just a check-in, other times it’s a specific phrase you have to Tweet or that the application will post or Tweet for you

Personally, I’ll stay away from the specific “approved” messaging by turning off the option to let the app post for me since I’d rather always share my honest opinion.  The good news is, though, that you can sign up and limit the app’s access while still earning up to 1,000 bonus miles for joining and linking all three accounts – Twitter, Facebook and Foursquare.

I did it yesterday and the miles already posted to my account. You earn 400 points just for signing up and an additional 200 miles each for linking  your Twitter, Facebook, and Foursquare accounts for a total of 1,000 potential bonus miles.

You can redeem those miles as you normally would on United, or directly through BCKSTGR for various experiences it has set up, like one-on-one cooking classes, weekend getaways or private concerts.

I love when airlines and hotels run social media campaigns since I’m always Tweeting, posting on Facebook and Instagramming photos all over the place. The only thing I like more is when free miles and points are involved!
