FREE 1,000 United Miles and 500 American Airline Miles

This post may contain affiliate links from our advertising partners, such as American Express. Read my Advertiser Disclosure policy here. Additionally, some of the offers on this page may no longer be available through Deals We Like.

You can get some quick and easy miles with United and American!

United: Sign up with Bckstgr and after linking your three social media accounts, you’ll get a total of 1,000 miles. You’ll get 400 miles off the bat by just signing up for with your United account. Then you’ll get 200 miles each for linking your account with Twitter, Facebook, and FourSquare. You must select each social media account in your “Profile & Preferences” tab.

American Airlines: “Like” American Airlines on Facebook, click the “Get Started” button on the page, fill out the survey questions asked, and 500 miles will be yours.


I believe both are limited time offers and could be capped at a certain number of participants, so take advantage of these two free mile opportunities today. While these free miles will not earn you a free ticket, it will help you be one step closer while also extending your mileage expiration dates, which for some can be a huge perk.

Enjoy your free miles!

  1. I got the 400 miles, but the others won’t connect. It won’t let me select all three, and when I do one at a time, it cancels the previous one or two. I am doing something wrong, not sure what.

  2. Why does bckstgr need our United MP password/PIN? Every other promotion I’ve participated in to get MP miles just asked for teh account number, never the pw/PIN. I’m a little hesitant because of this.

  3. Just signed up for it and linked my Facebook accoutn. However, when I log off bckstgr and log back in, the Facebook box is unchecked again. Also, it looks like I only have 400 miles added to my account according to bckstgr, not 600 (+200 from FB). Is this normal?

  4. I’m experiencing the same problems others have mentioned, not to mention the miles have not hit my UA acct, just my bckstgr acct. Having given them my UA password, I’m a little worried about this one. I think I’ll change mine right away. Thanks for the try though.

  5. It took 2 days for my miles to post. I changed my PIN, but am not sure if that will affect the posting any future miles, if any. BTW, you can also get another 25 miles (I know, big deal) for liking them on Facebook.

  6. Is there any restriction on this deal for United account’s from Brazil? I’ve tried to sign up for with my United account and got this message: Unable to complete registration. That would be a great chance to revalidate my points. Any help? Thanks.
