If you’re planning on eating out at least a few times this month, you’ll definitely want to take advantage of this promo from United’s MileagePlus Dining program. All you need to do is enroll in MileagePlus Dining (note that the offer only applies to new members), register your credit (or debit) card and dine out.

You won’t earn all 4,000 bonus miles (worth about $60 according to TPG’s latest valuations) at once, but rather you’ll earn 500 after you sign up and register your card. Then, you’ll earn 1,000 miles after making your first dining purchase of at least $25 at a participating restaurant, and then 500 additional miles for each time you dine out and spend at least $25 at participating restaurants, up to five times.

If you want to partake in this promo, make sure you register a credit card that gives you a bonus on dining such as the Chase Sapphire Reserve (3x), Chase Sapphire Preferred (2x), American Express Premier Rewards Gold (2x) and more. Doing so will allow you to ‘double dip’ and earn even more points for your dining purchases.

Bank of America® Premium Rewards® Visa® credit card

This card from Bank of America gets really interesting if you have a BofA checking, savings or investment account. Depending on the value of your combined accounts you can potentially get as much as 3.5x points on travel/dining and 2.625x points on other purchases making it the richest consumer banking bonus out there.
