Free United miles with SoftCard

SoftCard is a mobile payment solution which often offers cash back deals to encourage usage.  Now, they’re offering miles instead of cash.  If you have SoftCard and a SoftCard compatable device (find out here) and a United MileagePlus card, you can earn bonus miles as follows:

  • 2500 miles just for enrolling
  • 500 more miles each month in which you make a payment with SoftCard and your United card, through February 28th, 2015.

To get started, add your MileagePlus credit card to SoftCard (be sure to click “Activate Card”), then register your United  MileagePlus account number with SoftCard.  Details here:

So what if I’ve already added my MP card to softcard for the $20 amazon deal. Should I remove it and then re-add it? or should I be able to just make another softcard purchase to get the miles?


I’m in the same boat, and here’s how I’m reading it. When I go into manage cards and click on my MileagePlus credit card, I am still given the link to “Enroll now.” The wording on the offer says “Earn 2,500 miles when you enroll your UNITED MILEAGEPLUS REWARDS NUMBER” (notice it doesn’t say the MP cc). It does go on to mention “first purchase,” but is unclear as to whether this is first purchase after enrolling or in general using the card. I would expect the subsequent 500 mile to work, if you use the card every month. I’m not sure how much more McDonalds and snacks from CVS I can take! 🙂


No iPhone App???

Why is there no mention of this IMPORTANT point?


Thanks for the heads up on the easy UA points!
