Download a free app and get 1,000 free United miles in a few weeks.

Screen Shot 2016-05-24 at 1.50.43 PM There are three steps:

  1. Register for the promotion here. (The promotion is that if you download a personal finance app called Prosper Daily and register your account, you get 1,000 free United miles. I don’t need a personal finance app, so I’m just in it for the miles.) You will be asked your name, zip code, United MileagePlus number, and phone number.

  2. Click the link that’s texted to you to download the app.
  3. Give an email address, password, and PIN to register your account in the app.

That’s all I did. I didn’t link any bank accounts or give any personal information. I believe I’ve done enough to get the 1,000 miles. We’ll find out for sure in 6-8 weeks, though I suspect the miles will post much sooner.

If you like free mini-miles like this, which are nice to reset the expiration date on your account, you still have a week left to get 700 free American Airlines miles in five minutes.
