250 Free Continental Miles for Learning About Wasting Your Hard-Earned Miles on Merchandise Auctions

Through September 30, Continental is offering 250 free miles for registering on a page promoting spending your miles on Continental Onepass auctions.

As with many of these offers, I don’t necessarily bet the points will post for folks who don’t have a Continental Mastercard. But they might. And since the rules of the promotion don’t say you need to have the card, you could probably argue for your 250 points if you don’t and they don’t appear..

Oh, and these auctions seem to be even worse than the ones on eBay. Not that the items on the Continental auction site are fake, of course, but 11,000 miles for two Cleveland Indians tickets… with a week left to go and the price left to rise?
