Now that we’re past New Years Resolutions (and we’ve all broken ours), gym signups are down. Gyms need to incentivize memberships. And they’ll pay companies to get them members, including companies that will kick back miles to you (rebating a portion of their commission).
You can earn 2000 United miles for joining a gym through GlobalFit’s “MileagePlus Fitness” program.
They have offers from Anytime Fitness, Bally Total Fitness, Curves, 24 Hour Fitness, New York Sports Clubs, and more.
The site claims best pricing, better than what you get walking into the gym, but I haven’t verified this.
Hat tip goes to Notiflyer and they did verify one pricing instance:
We checked out the price for a membership with 24 Hour Fitness that earns miles and the cost was a $259 payment for an entire year plus a $39 processing fee. The rate quoted at 24hourfitness.com was $29.99 a month, so the price is cheaper through this offer but you’ll need to buy a full-year membership.
Unsurprisingly, joining online (where you’re more apt to compare prices) is cheaper, and going through what’s effectively a shopping portal to make the online purchase can earn miles.
