FTD: 30 United Miles Per Dollar PLUS 1500 Miles Per Order

Now this is a great bonus offer.

Sure, for large dollar orders the US Airways holiday shopping promo (which makes the standard 20 miles per dollar from FTD 70 miles) is better. But then you have to use one of your 10 possible transactions under that promo.

For smaller orders, this United offer reigns supreme. A $30 order from FTD will earn 2400 miles. Worth it for the miles alone? Maybe not, since you have to pay delivery fees. But a darn bit better than buying miles directly from United, that’s for sure. Find the cheapest item on their website and order away.

Or just be sure to use this link for all of your holiday gift giving if you can get away with it.

  1. Damn. First time I’ve tried FTD and I’m shocked at how expensive flower delivery is. At this price, I’d rather buy my own bouquet and fly over for hand delivery. 🙂

  2. Thanks Gary – just got 6750 United miles thanks to this promotion. A bit hard to figure out what to order since my shopping was done, but that didn’t matter too much since the bonus plus points for spending were so good, and the points posted in just two weeks after the order, 1 week after the deliveries. I am grateful to add, for me, so many miles to my small United account by this easy method, and I thank you for this heads up.

  3. Link may be active,
    but in the fine print on the bottom
    it still says:

    Offer expires 12/24/2009

    so…who knows.
