This week’s Thursday Giveaway is a chance to win a $500 United gift card. Even if you’re not a frequent United flyer, it’s quite easy to earn miles without ever stepping on an airplane. United miles also offer some great redemption opportunities on foreign carriers like ANA, Lufthansa and Swiss.

A number of other great cards also give you an opportunity to earn even more miles. Chase Sapphire Preferred, TPG’s card of choice, comes with a 50,000-point sign-up bonus after you spend $4,000 in the first three months, and Ultimate Rewards points can be instantly transferred to United.

The United MileagePlus Explorer Card also has a 40,000-mile sign-up bonus after you spend $2,000 in the first three months.

The Chase Sapphire Preferred has a 40,000 point bonus offer.

TPG values Chase Ultimate Rewards Points at 2.1 cents apiece and United miles at 1.5 cents each, so you’ll earn quite a bit of value from both of these sign-up offers.

You must enter the giveaway below no later than 11:59pm ET on Monday, September 28.
