Copa Airlines is breaking away from United MileagePlus and is launching their own frequent flyer program called ConnectMiles. As a way to lure people to sign up, they are offering bonus miles. The miles are offered as follows:
- 1,000 for signing up
- 2,000 for completing your profile
- 1,000 when the program launches in July
The website is very slow right now since a lot of people are signing up, however I can confirm that the 1,000 miles post for signing up and the additional 2,000 miles show up after completing your profile. Unfortunately I can’t find any confirmation in writing about the additional 1,000 miles when the program launches.
Keep in mind that you will need your passport and id numbers to complete the profile in order to earn the full amount of miles. The entire process takes less than 5 minutes as long as their website loads correctly.
