    Those affected by Hurricane Sandy still need our help! Through November 30, 2012, United Airlines and American Airlines are offering frequent flier miles for cash donations to the hurricane relief efforts. With the effects of Hurricane Sandy, these announcements are made in order to help victims that have been affected by the storm – one that has caused nearly 150 fatalities.
    Here are the basics on each offering:


    • United Airlines: A one-time bonus of 250 bonus miles will be given for donations from $50 to $99 – or 500 bonus points for donations of $100 or more. Enter your MileagePlus number when you make the donation. A maximum of five million miles will be awarded with the program. The bonus miles are awarded for donations to American Red Cross, AmeriCares, or Feeding America – United Airlines is also matching donations for these three organizations, up to $50,000.
    • American Airlines: A minimum of $50 will earn a one-time bonus of 250 miles – or 500 bonus points for a minimum of $100 to the American Red Cross. The announcements note that the name on the donation will need to match the name on the AAdvantange account for the bonus to be eligible. Users will need to mark “Yes” next to the statement pertaining to the donation offer.

    Interested parties can make a donation through the linked programs, in order to gain some frequent flier miles and to support the hurricane relief efforts. Contact us to learn how you can track your miles and any discount program with UsingMiles – a free tool to manage your rewards.
