    But don't you need to spend at least $125 to get the 1500 mile bonus?

    Yes, but no minimum to get the 500 bonus. I assume that "download and use" means "download, use, and make a purchase."

    Just noticed the end date is to 11-11-11. That is the date the "rumor" merge is completed. Is this a coincidence????

    I'd rather get 8% cash back from ebates.com. But if that's the only purchase that would otherwise get you that bonus, it makes sense.

    Ah, right. I somehow thought it was a search tool and you'd get credit just for using (=searching) it.

    I downloaded the tool tonight and it clearly states that a search is enough to get the 500 points.

    Here's a screencap of the page that comes up after installation:
