When My Two Loves Collide: Earning Miles on Valentine’s Day
I love my wife…and I love miles. It’s not a lie, or a secret, so I get excited during Valentine’s Day every year.
I love the miles-earning promos that run during Valentine’s Day. I get to be the hero to my wife, mom, grandma, and 3 sisters by sending them flowers. But, I do get something else in return (besides being a good boy) – miles. Oh, the miles.
To help yourself look good and earn some extra miles – here are some of the hottest Valentine’s Day promotions. Noobilicious.
Southwest – 2,000 Rapid Rewards with Teleflora
You can earn up to 2,000 Southwest Rapid Rewards points with Teleflora.
You will earn 1,250 points for all orders up to $49.99 and 250 points for every additional $25 you spend. Southwest Rapid Rewards points can be stretched out pretty far during one of their frequent fare sales, or if you have the Companion Pass.
US Airways Storefront
If you’re a Barclyard RewardsBoost Member, you will find extra earning benefits through the US Airways Storefront mall. I didn’t find any sexy deals browsing around, but you may something that meets your needs.
United – Earn 30 miles per $1 and bonus 150 miles per order with FTD
You will earn 30x United MileagePlus miles per $1 with FTD during United’s Valentine’s promo. Plus, 150 bonus miles per order. Not too shabby. You can also use your miles to buy flowers, but who wants to do that?
This is the Valentine’s Day promo that I take advantage of every year. I love earning United miles. It’s a sickness, and you can’t beat 30x miles per $1. And for all of you procrastinators (me) out there – same day delivery is available in most markets. Save the day.
Please allow 6-8 weeks for miles to be posted to your account.
American Airlines – 30x with FTD and other opportunities
Don’t forget to check Chase’s Ultimate Rewards portal if you’re doing any Valentine’s Day shopping, too. The bonuses there are often better than you will find on the airline’s site.
Also, don’t forget to check to see if any restaurants in the dining network are worthy of a Valentines date.
Some people have reported having issues with FTD crediting them their miles, but I haven’t. Anyway, you should check and make sure you receive the miles you deserve (6-8 weeks).
Be a hero this Valentine’s Day and send your loved ones some flowers or chocolate. Do it for the love…not the miles. Ok, do it for both.
