250 Free Northwest Miles

Frugal Travel Guy points out that creating a Northwest Airlines Gift Registry is enough to earn 500 miles in Northwest’s Mountains of Miles promo. (You’ll need to register for the promo before creating the registry in order to earn the miles.)

As Frugal Travel Guy’s post points out, and as I can confirm, once you have created a gift registry you’ll receive a short survey by email asking you how you heard about the gift registry and why you created it.  The survey will earn 250 points.

Update: A reader actually reads the terms and conditions of the gift registry part of the Mountains of Miles offer and points out in the comments that $25 needs to be deposited into the gift registry in order to earn the 500 miles, and money deposited by the reigstrant is excluded.  At the very least you can create the registry and get the email survey for 250 points. So I’ve changed the title of the thread to 250 free miles…

  1. Gary, getting the 500 miles requires a $25 outlay:

    Create an nwa.com Gift Registry. Points for opening an NWA Gift Registry account will be awarded after account has been opened and a minimum contribution of $25 has been posted to registry. Contributions made by registrant or co-registrant are not eligible.

  2. And you may or may not get the survey. I created two registries for the two people in my household. One received the survey, the other one didn’t (no emal spam filter involved).
